"Let's play something else": Faye Dunaway & Steve McQueen explore the erotic possibilities of chess in The Thomas Crown Affair (1968, dir. Norman Jewison). The movie’s major romantic scene takes place over a chessboard. “Do you play?” Crown asks. “Try me,” she answers. After those two sentences, the script had a three-word description about what should follow: “Chess with sex.” No dialogue, just a man and a woman, a chessboard, chess pieces, and a charge of sexual tension.

Rollerball (1975) The somnambulist 70's vision of the future might be a little too arty for its own good but the game/battle scenes are still the most exciting thing ever filmed. Spawned one of the most pointless remakes in movie history.
