Buy the Rights is the fast-paced, fun-filled party game for the movie lover in us all! It only takes a minute to learn and is filled with almost infinite creative combinations. In Buy the Rights, players create their own movies based on four decks of cards. Each round, one player is the Producer and the other players are Screenwriters. Using the cards as a starting point, Screenwriters pitch their movies to the Producer, who then buys the rights to their favorite ideas.
But in the cut-throat world of show business, only the best pitches win!
- Come up with an awesome title
- Cast your favorite stars for the lead roles
- Belt out the heart-wrenching theme song
- Act out the explosive finale
Pitching Your Movie
"A [Genre] movie about a [Descriptor] [Hero] [Plot]"
Pitching is more than just reading the cards back to the producer. Elaborate on the story, characters, and plot to really sell your movie. You gotta stand out if you want the big bucks!
There are over 100 million possible combinations in Buy the Rights, but here are some example loglines:
- An action comedy about a kung-fu fighting cat lady becoming a bounty hunter to pay off student loans
- A rock opera about a foul-mouthed roller derby girl getting abducted by aliens to represent Earth in a galactic sporting event
- A film noir movie about a gun-toting door-to-door salesman marrying and then murdering a series of wealthy widows
- A buddy comedy about a socially awkward werewolf forming an unlikely friendship with a 12-year-old girl

I backed this game on Kickstarter and waited eagerly for my package to arrive and once it did, I threw myself a little party and invited some friends over to play. We all had a good time and now they're asking where I got my copy. Do yourself a favor and pick this game up. And then buy it. Also, then play with it.
I recommended to all of my friends during the Kickstarter, and now I want to recommend it to anyone looking at this, now that it's readily available to everyone! It's a great game for a group of friends just sitting around the table, wanting to have fun without a ton of complex rules.
It plays like A2A or CAH in many ways; but you actively pitching your cards not playing secretly. This small change in mechanics has a big impact on gameplay. Instead of relying on good cards, you need to be able to make a good movie pitch. Often the best pitch comes from the worst cards. A2A or CAH games also tend to get a bit stale and predictable, and after a couple of hours of play you have seen most of the cards. Because this plays a bit slower, and because the decks are huge, and because you are mixing and matching cards from 4 decks; I expect this to have more replay-ability.
Being a huge movie buff (I do happen to co-host a podcast about Cult Films) and an avid game player I was immediately sold on the concept. I happen to know one of the game designers and before he launched the successful Kickstarter campaign to create the game, Tommy had a batch of prototypes printed up and my girlfriend Jaime and I were lucky enough to receive a copy to play-test. Recently we had a bunch of friends over for a cookout and figured it was the perfect opportunity to pull out the game ad kick the tires a bit.
As I mentioned, the game is comprised of four decks of cards, Plot, Genre, Hero, & Hero Descriptor. Each deck has 100 different cards, so there are almost limitless combinations that can be formed when devising movie pitches. Half of the fun of the game is trying to put together a halfway coherent idea with the randomly drawn cards, and the other half of the fun is “selling” the pitch to the producer. So when the best movie idea in your hand is Horror Film (Genre) about a Dyslexic Plumber (Descriptor & Hero cards), who has to play a championship basketball game against aliens (plot), you really have to pull out the charisma to get the producer on your side. In all seriousness, the game is a lot of fun and while we were playing we were constantly laughing at the pitches!
Buy the Rights follows in the tradition of games like Cards Against Humanity and Apples to Apples, and is perfect for both audiences (it can be played perfectly clean, or depending on the players and ages can get pretty hilariously “adult”.) There's also a great expansion pack full of 80s era Action cards for folks like me who grew up in Reagan America Buy the Rights: The 80s Action Expansion
This is a fantastic party game that you won't regret buying.
