I watched a film as a child probably 15 years ago about two children who play a board game and get taken into the game and every square they land on they find themselves in a situation for the game. It is not Zathura or Jumanjii. The kids were quite young about 8/9??

    You just disqualified the only two I could think of. Do you know anything else about the movie? Is it a spacey Gane, a jungley game? Try to throw out some more details if you can remember them. – Garret Gang Jun 23 '18 at 0:02

  • Was this definitely a film, and not, say, a game show? – AJM Jun 25 '18 at 8:47

    I wonder if this might be a VHS or DVD of "Wonders in Letterland", the first of the T-Bag series to have aired on UK television in the 80s (see information at hight.50webs.com/series/wonders/ep1.html). There were indeed two young children travelling through the squares of the boardgame - Debbie (the protagonist) and Thomas/T-Shirt (in every series he would be brainwashed into serving as the antagonist's sidekick - but usually by the final episode he would regain control and actively help the good guys.) If you think it might be I can submit an answer instead of this comment. – AJM Jun 25 '18 at 9:11
