I saw a programme on the American chess master who died in Iceland who played chess games. I forget his name..

So basically it's the idea all of us have had when we run out of paintballs at the end of a match.... in that the whole thing should be filmed. infact the whole thing should be filmed from every angle. sod that, the whole thing should be filmed from every angle VIRTUALLY to get the idea of which angles are best. inject some adrenaline and you have a game thought of in NAM.
