What Film does Grepolis remind you of?


Jeez... Don't any of you watch old films???

Definitely.... "They Shoot Horses Don't They?"

1969... Directed by the great Sydney Pollack
"In the midst of the Great Depression, manipulative emcee Rocky (Gig Young) enlists contestants for a dance marathon offering a $1,500 cash prize. Among them are a failed actress (Jane Fonda), a middle-aged sailor (Red Buttons), a delusional blonde (Susannah York) and a pregnant girl (Bonnie Bedelia)…Days turn into weeks as the competition drags on and people either drop out or expire. Rocky, however, will do anything for publicity and initiates a series of grueling derbies."

Sounds like typical Grepo players to me...

Google it... Maybe even watch it online. A young Jane Fonda...
Captures the grind, the grim determination and essential futility of this game.
