The trailer for Oscar nominated German film Downfall is very disappointing. At no point does the very starry (vor a German film) cast shake off the grimness fo a end of WWII Nazi flick and settle down to the Milton Bradley game of the title.

Of course all wars would be better off be sorted out by the leaders playing a boardgame. However bear in mind that there is not an MB Game that I do not know how to cheat at. That said, Battleships is just this principle taken to ridiculous extremes.
