RPG[edit]

What can be done about the term used "RPG" it seems like an poor grammer, should this be updated to Role-player, or Fantasy player? --Warwon

I'm not sure which instance of the use of the term you are referring to. I fixed one use that seemed awkward, but the remaining uses look and sound fine to me. — Frecklefoot | Talk 17:57, 2 May 2006 (UTC)

RPG can be replaced with 'role-playing game'. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 84.216.46.95 (talk) 07:51, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

Real game[edit]

There is actually a roleplaying game called Monsters & Mazes at http://www.hoboes.com/pub/Role-Playing/Fantasy/Monsters%20and%20Mazes This link probably dosen't work. ----MaxW

Not even remotely close. There have been a few tries to guess out what the Mazes & Monsters game rules were. But too little is known to really say. Some think it closer to Tunnels & Trolls than D&D. But no one has ti my knowledge actually made the movie into a game. Closest anology now would be LARPs and the GenCon event called True Dungeon, amongst others.

Dexter's Lab OT[edit]

This is a great page! I adore this movie . . . I made a few small changes to streamline grammar and deleted the totally off-topic "Trivia" bit about Dexter's Lab . . . Gorjus 13:58, 11 August 2006 (UTC)

The Dexter's lab thing probably doesn't refer to this at all. Something else though, in the movie Tom Hanks had given it up due to his parents urging after almost flunking out of his former college (which he decided to transfer over to Grant instead). "For some reason" is kind of incomplete. The reason is obvious. -WS

Made for TV Movies[edit]

There was another movie made for TV about D&D players that went crazy. Does anyone remember it's name?--BenWoodruff (talk) 15:50, 19 November 2007 (UTC)

I believe the film you're thinking of is called Skullduggery. It was directed by Ota Richter, and released in 1982 (not to be confused with the earlier Burt Reynolds film of the same name.) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.186.136.47 (talk) 01:13, 22 April 2008 (UTC)

Talk about Edit @ 18:37, 20 June 2014 /* Plot */ Removed {By Whom} tag.[edit]

The implication of these plot elements is in the actual script/dialog of the movie:

  1. As for Robbie being in "regular counseling" there is a comment near the end where Kate says "... but his mother says he needs to keep seeing that doctor." That is not implied, it is explicit.
  2. The very last line of the movie is a narrative voice-over by Kate looking back on what happened that day...

    "And so, we played the game again for one last time. It didn't matter that there were no maps or dice, or no monsters. Pardue saw the monsters, we did not. We saw nothing but the death of hope and the loss of our friend. And so we played the game until the sun began to set and all the monsters were dead."

    The phrase "death of hope" seems an extremely strong implication that Robbie would never recover. 66.97.209.215 (talk) 19:03, 20 June 2014 (UTC)
