So... Settlers of Catan is going to be made into a movie.

What kind of plot will it have?

Aren't there much better board games to make movies from?

Historical drama spanning four decades? Toss a good director at it and a whole lot of acting talent and you've got yourself a 2 1/2 long Oscar Bait flick.

Sure, zombies are played out... but a zombie film meets John Carpenter's The Thing? Sign me up! At the very least, a terrific mini-series.

Great bait for a neo-noir, low budget spy flick script.

Clue would make a great comedy about the board game...

Ok, ok... I know it has been done... But I wouldn't mind if they would do Clue again, as long as it still has that similar intelligent comedy feel.

In a world...

Humans are but meat puppets to the depraved Old Gods who battle and corrupt the landscape. Perhaps the plot is some schmoe finds himself damned in this world (a' la Neverwhere). Either way, tons of CGI, massive battles between the various Gods, endless eye candy.

Somebody call Clive Barker.

Not only is Cyberpunk generally a great genre for visuals, but the personalities and the storyline that's been sown into the game are great. The corporations are all totally evil, but really, so are the runners; good fodder for a lot of moral ambiguity.

A desperate race by martial arts warriors to stop the encroaching assault of evil spirits, a combination of the trapped-in urgency of Night of the Living Dead with the pulpy Chinese mysticism of Big Trouble in Little China or the sadly overlooked Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires.

Seriously, Hollywood. Did someone accidentally import some extra sheep that you needed to use? THIS is the board game to film.

Speaking of Bauza, I can't believe no one's made a film yet about seven samurai defending a village from bandits! But it just needs a snappier title, like Sword Guys, or Night Mistress.

A group of gifted scientists must learn to work together in a race against time in order to save the World from four deadly diseases.

In the sequel Pandemic: On the Brink the stakes are raised as the team must join forces once more to stop a megalomaniac bio-terrorist threatening the World with extinction.

Let's be honest here... There have already been a number of successful films about colonialism, but I think this sort of a film would be more successful. Granted, it probably wouldn't appear like the board game though.

I think Summoner Wars would be an awesome movie, but probably an even better TV show, like Game of Thrones. Lots of characters and lore to pull from and it wouldn't be afraid to kill off liked characters. That would be awesome.

I see this one as a sort of Godzilla meets Pacific Rim, except there are no giant robots and you get to watch humanity being eaten and enslaved for 3 hours.
