I'm planning on trying out some new kinds of posts. I still want to post once a week, but I've realized to keep the book & boardgame match-ups going at the current rate, I need to play three awesome new games each month and have a book to match it to. Or, rather, thirty-six games a year. Eek!
So, to a new game. I love fantasy and science fiction. I'm always frustrated when these genres are labeled as pure escapism, or are ridiculed for having plots and situations irrelevant to the real world. A few years ago, watching a movie, I realized that the plot could be summarized to sound like a literary novel. Thinking harder, most any plot involving character change can be rewritten this way. Here's a movie description. Can you guess what film it belongs to?
A young woman, accustomed to small-town life has only small-town ambitions of marriage with her local sweetheart, until she takes a new job. At first, she's terrified, but slowly learns through her successes that she is a capable woman. She gains the confidence to see her old life through new eyes and leaves her fiance to pursue her career.
And the answer is...
Let me know if this game was interesting, and if you'd like to see more of these in the future!
