    Venturing out into Berlin to familiarise herself with her surroundings, Lina is caught in a random police check, but her documents and accent do not arouse any suspicion. Imagine then my surprise to find a free print'n play game here on the BGG database, and designed by a prolific BGG denizen to boot! The synopsis below may give away important plot points. In the tale, a fictional medieval prince gives a masquerade ball at his castle. In every game I've played, the Boiler eventually blows up -- it's inevitable.

    So when I wrote this book I wrote a lot of that down and tried to get it out of my system, but it was also a confession. Although Danny is close to his parents, he does not tell either of them about his visions because he senses that the care-taking job is important to his father and the family's future. What happens would have happened anyway, even if they hadn't been able to see the hotel's ghosts; the memories of those it has left for dead. King considered that a compliment.

    Except that the elevator is the only way to get from floor to floor, and it's never where you want it to be. The hotel wears its malevolence on its sleeve. Wendy drags Jack's limp body to the pantry and locks him inside, just as he regains consciousness. It destroyed me: it's the only film which, to this day, I have trouble watching alone. Some people can "shine", which means they're psychic.

The Torrances arrive at the hotel on closing day and are given a tour by the manager. I've enjoyed playing this game so much, I've just gotta try Matthew Nadelhaft's other game designs! Over the years, it has housed illicit affairs, horrible murders, and mob-style executions; perhaps by consequence, its ownership has changed hands several times.

Jack attempts to break the door with the mallet, but Wendy slashes his hand with a razor blade to deter him. Wendy grabs Danny and locks them in the bathroom. Ed and John reject them all for various reasons. Eventually, it convinces Jack to destroy his two-way CB radio and disable the hotel snowmobile.

At the end of the film, Jack and the Overlook freeze; in the novel, the hotel burns in a fiery explosion. Eventually, he attacks his family, attempting to kill them in a twisted mirroring of the awful events that, it transpires, occurred in the hotel's past.

He rushes back to the Overlook, where he is attacked by its hedge animals, which, like the rest of the hotel, have come to life.

Force, presence, shape, they were all only words and none of them mattered. Notably, Jack states that the injury happened three years ago, while in explaining the same story to the pediatrician, Wendy said that Jack, who vowed to quit drinking immediately following the accident, has currently been sober for only five months.

Neither is the correct version: one is the original, and one is a cover; a different take on the same powerful, terrifying material. The pipes will freeze before Boiler repairmen can arrive and the Torrences will lose all of the money they would have made as winter custodians of the hotel.

And then, suddenly, there's a bartender, Lloyd, and shelves full of bottles.

Yet by the third year of the Kennedy presidency, a poll of campuses reported that the Peace Corps was the country's "most admired institution" and the civil service reported a sharp increase in college applicants.

Yet three of the most important details in The Shining appear before the novel even begins. Hallorann has taken a job in Mainewhere Wendy is recovering from her injuries and Danny fishes.

That night I dreamed of my three-year-old son running through the corridors, looking back over his shoulder, eyes wide, screaming. They were offered one choice for dinner, the only meal still available. Still, Wendy perceives that something is wrong with Danny.

But probably the most telling scene in both — a scene that really shows how they are different — is when Jack finds himself at the hotel bar in a vast empty ballroom, with no alcohol. Boiler slaves! For the King fan, however, it's hard to think of one without the other.

Why are these guys fighting ghosts? They were so entwined that I was unable to separate the atmosphere of one from the other, to not let book-Jack's motivations bleed into my watching the movie, to not let the horrifying twins appear as I read about the hotel corridors.

He has described it as "a domestic tragedy with only vaguely supernatural overtones", saying that, "a visceral sceptic such as Kubrick just couldn't grasp the sheer inhuman evil of the Overlook Hotel.

After several drinks, Jack is confronted by the ghost of Delbert Grady, the caretaker who murdered his family.

Won't you ever go to bed? Jack hears the voice of the Overlook as the novel progresses — his own touch of the shining — and it gnaws at him, turning him away from his family.
