The popcorn's popped, the movie snacks out, and you sit with your family for a double feature. But before you pass the popcorn, for those obsessed with board games, card games, and trivia games along with a love of movies there’s: A Trivia Card Game About EVERY Movie! What began as a fun movie game of Mad Libs meets Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, now a film trivia game where your big screen skills are used for family game nights, date night, or drinking games with new friends.
From the Manufacturer
Every player lays down a Trivia Card, like Movie, Actor, Role, or Quote. By forging movie connections, from actors and actresses to roles and movie quotes, we jump to a new movie, going from Willy Wonka to Young Frankenstein using Gene Wilder. This trivia game relies on the player's movie knowledge, jumping from dramas to horror, from comedy to classics. Strategy cards like Take 5, Reverse Angle, Edit, and CUT! spice up basic play. With each session the game plays differently, you can’t get a better game deal than that!
Old games are like television reruns, but this trivia card game bests complicated tabletop games and card games, especially friendship strainers like Cards Against Humanity and Exploding Kittens. It can be a gift for dad, a movie gift for the card game fan, or kids raised on kids games from Spin Master. Plus, you’ll never need an expansion pack. Do you like Disney, Marvel, DC, Star Wars movies, Harry Potter, or kids movies? Play them all! Players can jump around in their favorite television shows if they want.

The perfect gift for any movie lover in your life
Movie Buff caters to how you play, unlike pre-packaged trivia games like Scene It. And it’s portable for travel and road trips. Monopoly, Taboo, Family Feud (not just the TV game), Apples to Apples, Pictionary, and Uno have wide appeal after many years, and so will this game. Your favorite movie, from every writer, producer, and director throughout history, can come up in play, so long as you choose it.

Party. Excitement. Limitless.
How did you come up with the idea for this product?
Initially created by Justin Purvis along with his wife Corrie, Movie Buff started out as a game that many film lovers find themselves playing; connecting various movies with the various actors and quoting the scenes we all love and remember is a pastime for all movie lovers. After bringing it to life, the creators knew something was missing when fans asked about a possible Director or Producer card, potentially adding to the fun of linking different movies. Following this important feedback, Justin and Corrie collaborated with Marc, Rachel, and Rob at Golden Games to bring the Bonus Features Packs to life here! We humbly ask your support to green light this fantastic addition to our wonderful game so we can share our love of movies with you and your loved ones.
What makes your product special?
Movie Buff can be played anywhere, anytime, and never gets stale! The trivia component comes from player's movie knowledge so as movies are released and watched, the game only gets bigger!
What has been the best part of your startup experience?
It's been an incredible journey taking the initial print run of the game on the road, showcasing it with tabletop game aficionados in mind. Every fan has made our day with the specific movies they chose when playing and we hope that everyone playing Movie Buff will make long-lasting memories. After meeting all of you, you're all stars in our eyes!

There are 4 cards: movie, quote, role, and actor. We removed the actor cards to play with the kids, they are not familiar with actor's names. Each player has 10 cards and the object is to get rid of all your cards. Someone opens with a card...say, the movie card, and they name Toy Story 1. The next player must lay down a quote/role/actor card and name one that goes with Toy Story 1...say, lay down a role card and name Woody. Then move on to the next player. Player 3 may also place a role card and name Andy, or place a quote card and say "To infinity, and beyond!", or (if you are playing with actor cards) place an actor card and name Tom Hanks. When all 4 types of cards are played (there may be several of some, like quotes), that movie is closed, and the next player must start a new movie. Official rules say there must be one related card...say, a common actor...but with kids we just say the next player chooses. This is hilarious, because depending on if you are familiar with the current movie, you may be dying for a chance to use a card, or dreading it. But it's up to the people before you to keep a movie going, by playing a duplicate card, or completing the "set". Also, as you play cards, your options become limited. You may know a quote, but only have role cards. An actor's name may be on the tip of your tongue, but you can't quite get it. Your kids may know Spongebob the Movie backwards and forwards, but you've only seen it in passing on the way to the laundry room, and now your kids are kicking your butt with Spongebob quotes and characters and rubbing it in your face. And maybe you can't wait to play this with adults so there are more than just Disney movies and Alvin and the Chipmunks. But maybe that's just me. There are more in depth rules, of course, and other "Uno"-esque cards like skip, reverse, and wild cards, but you get the general idea of the game now, I hope.
We love it. And I personally love that it can be tailored to kids, cause I have a lot of them, and they love kid movies, but then adults can play the same game with movies my kids can't watch for 10 more years. It's also very much like Uno in that it can be as tame or ruthless as you make it, and deceptively simple. We love that about it. It also is perfect for traveling, no bulky boards or pieces, it's slightly larger than 2 decks of playing cards. Anyway, well done to the creators, we have thoroughly enjoyed it, and look forward to many more crazy games.
Not gonna return it because I don’t have the time but know it will never be played.
