There are two goals: it must check all the boxes and earn a lot of money! Hollywood writers get busy. Creating an interesting story is a real challenge, especially when the producer constantly asks about progress …
The producer will ask questions about the film, to which the writers must give a satisfactory answer. Each of the producers has a specific taste that you must fit into as soon as possible. But don’t deliberate for too long! Because as the Hollywood saying goes, “If you’re not ready, you’re not worthy!” It’s gonna be a great movie!
The game consists of 5 rounds, each of which is divided into 4 phases. During the Briefing phase, the Producer reads one of his Exec Pitch cards. There is an excerpt from the plot and two questions for the film, such as “What is the Villain’s Evil Goal?” In the Brainstorm phase, the Screenwriting teams discuss their answers to share their ideas in the Pitch phase.
The player who plays the Exec takes on the role of one of the Exec Persona cards. Each Exec has different movie preferences that Scriptwriters must fit into. In the Verdict phase, the Exec will decide which team’s idea for the movie he likes more. This team gets 4 Victory Points. However, the losing team can also get a VP if the Exec decides to buy some of their ideas from them.
Sometimes Exec Pitch card will require you to create a new character for your movie. The Heroic Character cards and Villainous Character cards can be used for this. Heroic and Villainous characters are created by both teams and the Exec by combining traits from several Hero and Villain cards, which often leads to truly hilarious combinations.
At the beginning of each game, players also choose the Genre they will create. It can be a Crime, a Drama, or a Western, but we recommend a Blockbuster, which combines themes from various other genres for beginners. Only in a Blockbuster, you can come across a dragon with a chainsaw flying away towards the setting sun!
