Donkey Kong is an icon! Little do people know Mario was actually a spin off of the original Donkey Kong game where the eponymous ape threw barrels at the then-unnamed character, “Jumpman,” who later became Mario.

And thankfully, he nailed the role, like he was the king of the jungle!

At the end of this month, one of the most charming surprises to hit cinemas this Spring will be making its debut with Dungeons and Dragons: Honor Among Thieves. Now, it’s a hard thing to adapt a role-playing game with passionate but somewhat niche audience. How do you satisfy fans and players while appealing to mainstream audiences who have never played the game?

This review will be from someone who has played before.
