1) The 1960 Frank Sinatra heist original? The George Clooney ones? Or the new "Ocean's 8" film?

2) What figures?

3) What rules?

4) What terrain?

5) Anything else?

The new 'Oceans 8' team is all women. It's but the latest example of Hollywood liberals trying to brainwash and condition us into accepting the new "normal," so Desmond certainly will not game it.

So you speak for Dezmond now? :)

Wait. Does that mean that, when the Clooney films came out, if someone had said they preferred to game the 1960 version, that it was because they were unwilling "to accept the new ‘normal'"?

There's very little in any of them that isn't akin to things we got up to in various Traveller RPG adventures….

You will never top the original for style, class and sophistication. If I were going to game one, it would be that one.

28mm or 15mm?

28mm, probably use Pulp Alley.

Sinatra of course. That man was Class all the way. If "they" produced the Rat Pack in 28mm, I'd give it some thought. Sadly, that genre of gaming is beyond my ken.

As for George Clooney, he's gotten pretty far with his acting ability consisting solely of a bemused smirk. He's not worthy to shine Sinatra's shoes.

I don't see how this would be a Miniatures game at all. Roleplaying, possibly.

I second 28mm Fanatik, for the most part. I have stopped watching movies made after 1993, with the exception of the X-Files, but they're documentaries.

Sinatra and Company.

I think 28mm Fanatik was trying to poke fun.
