One of the best miniseries of the 1980's!
28 November 2020 | by tball-36264See all my reviews

Master of the Game had all the elements to make this an unforgettable production. Sex, lust, greed and murder. A fine performance by Dyan Cannon as the ruthless matriarch and domineering mother puts the icing on the cake. The supporting cast headed by Harry Hamlin is exceptional. Exotic locations, intrigue and suspense are the perfect ingredients that kept me interested for the 9 hours.
