It is unclear when this story actually takes place. During the opening sequence, Robbie Wheeling and his parents drive by a cinema playing 'The Empire Strikes Back' which would place the film in 1980 or 1981. At Jay Jay Brockway's "Brigitte Bardot" party, Jay Jay makes a remark regarding the bottle of wine he is given by Robbie as "1987". Throughout the film, there are numerous signs in the dorm that refer to the year 1982, yet the calendar in Kate Finch's dorm room shows November 1983. See more
And so... we played the game again... for one last time. It didn't matter that there were no maps... or dice... or monsters. Pardue saw the monsters. We did not. We saw nothing but the death of hope. And the loss of our friend. And so we played the game until the sun began to set... and all the monsters were dead.
