Harry Lime
« on: July 26, 2013, 11:25:41 PM »
Has anyone considered gaming Harry Lime's escape attempt from the "Third Man"?

Just wondering A) if it's feasible B) what rules to use C) what figures.

It wouldn't be unfeasible to use late war Germans in light kit for the Austrian police, same for the British/French/Russians etc. The civilians from Copplestone or 40's/20's gangsters ??

The board would be interesting - would love to have the time to try my hand at that.

I'll keep an eye on this. The Third Man is a fave of mine. The radio spinoff, "The Lives of Harry Lime" can be found as audio files, but the collection of short stories adapted from them seems to be unavailable. Probably loads of great adventure hooks there!
