Like most games the main objective is to try and be the first to finish, you do this by traveling around the game board (using names as your fuel), collecting one passenger from each of the following six categories, then taking them to the main central station to complete the NametrainTM! Music.. Any group or Musician as long as they are known as the recording artist Television.. Any TV program, but no using films shown on TV. Film.. Any film whether it has been shown on the big screen, video or T.V. Sport.. Any sports person, male or female. Actor/Actress.. Any actor or actress from TV, stage or film Well Known People.. A category for those that don't fall into any of the other categories. Playing the game To play NametrainTM is very simple, somebody says a name from one of the six categories (listed above) and the last letter of that name is then used as the starting letter of the next. Each player then takes it in turn to roll the number dice and move their train along the allotted spaces, they must then give an answer from the category they land on using the last letter from the previous players answer as the starting letter of their answer...and so on. For example The game is in full flow and it's your turn, the player to your right has left you on an 'E' by saying Bruce leE (they were on the actor/actress square). You roll the dice, you move four spaces and land on the music square. You only have 60 seconds to say the name of a group or singer whose name begins with an 'E'. Who do you say...the sands of time are slipping away...if you don't say a name soon you will lose one of your passengers, there's only a few seconds left...what about Elvis presleY. It gets you out of trouble and leaves the next player on a 'Y', they could now be the one in trouble with you taking one of their passengers.

...and gruesome scenes are often described in more detail than some might like.
The Hunger Games gives us an insight into what society could look like, if the powers that be were given the free rein to carry such actions out. In the Capitol, everyone lives a life of luxury where the only things that matter are money and appearance. It?s a highly pretentious way to live and, sadly, one that many around...
Advantages: gripping story, lots going on Disadvantages: a few dodgy effects
...ay and raved about them and so I figured I would finally get round to seeing the film and this is my review of it. The Hunger Games is a screenplay which is based on the novel with the same name written by Suzanne Collins. I can say I was completely unaware of the books until I saw a preview of the film and then seemed to notice book shops all over advertising the books in t...
Advantages: involving to watch. Disadvantages: slow burner
