[edit] Game as adaptation?

The board game obviously takes much of its design influence from the video game - the wiki even states that "The whole board game is intended as a loose adaption of the original video game TROGDOR!". I don't know that the board game ought to be a sub-bullet of the video game, but it might merit a mention on this page. -- Bleu Ninja 20:57, 20 September 2019 (UTC)

The wiki only says that because I wrote that. It might not be entirely accurate; what I meant was that the video game and the board game had common elements and game mechanics. But what I can say is that the video game is TROGDOR! in all caps with precisely one exclamation mark, and the board game is Trogdor!! with two exclamation marks. That's the key to differentiating them. -- 01:20, 22 September 2019 (UTC)
Fair enough!! After checking their PAX talk where the Brothers Chaps call it "the board game adaptation of the video game adaptation of the song from the cartoon" - I think that all the different mediums are so closely connected that there's no need to specifically call out the board/video game connection. — Bleu Ninja 20:32, 22 September 2019 (UTC)
