I watched Lifeboat last night, and it needs to be added to the bibliography for Open Boat. Every character has an Issue, PTA style, and it makes me wonder whether Open Boat is currently too shallow – the only character interactions are those forced on players by mechanical desperation. It might be enough but maybe it could be better. Of course the meat of the game is player interaction, metagame wheeling and dealing, &c. Anyway, Tallulah Bankhead kicks ass.
