Disc: New: "Fun" as Adjective

Message 1: "fun" as adjective

Subject: "fun" as adjective

"Key" would be another example of a noun used as an adjective that
somehow does not ring true as predicate adjeective. Although "The game
was fun" works, "The game was key" does not seem to.

Any comments on this?
