Cinephile: A Card Game
I recently caught wind of Cody Everett and Steve Isaacs’ exciting card game for cinephiles, aptly called *ahem* Cinephile: A Card Game.
After browsing through its site and Kickstarter page (to which I have not pledged because they currently don’t ship to the US), I’ve concluded that as a product it exists primarily to solve one age-old problem.
You know how some friends exclaim how hard it is to give gifts to cinephiles? Well, I’ve heard that. A lot. Maybe that stems from this idea of film nerds being hyper-critical about movies among other things in life. I don’t know, but I’m quite positive it’s a thing.
Well, here you have a card game specifically created for movie geeks. The game literally incentivizes players who go hard on movie trivia and keep encyclopedic knowledge about cinema.
The game, because cinephiles are obviously indecisive creatures, gives players the option to choose different ways to play it. You know, just to fuck with us. I kind of like that.
There are currently five different games you can play with the cards.
Each game will have different rules, but every one boils down to how big of a nerd you are with movies. Also, there are “remix” games, which are altered gameplays that are so good the game makers made them canon. There’s one up currently called “Inglorious Basterds”.
