It is hard not to like an idea about a board-game coming to life and forcing you to play the game through in reality. Kirsten Dunst was an excellent child actress in her young days and she is also super cute here with pigtails. Some CGI is dated now and the movie jumps from one set-piece to another as every time someone throws the dice something has to happen this make the story boring and predictable after a while.
Still somewhat aghast it took me this long to watch this, given that every kid I hung out with when I was younger, boy or girl, seemed to have this, Flubber, and Honey, I Shrunk the Kids. It was a pleasant affair, a bit hindered by dated effects and jokes (at one point, a gun salesman asks the hunter character, to whom he just sold a firearm, for clarification to assure he's not a postal worker to give you an idea).
