The golden age of video rentals is back! Introducing a brand new fun family game for anyone that has ever seen a movie - and just like all great blockbusters, this one's a double bill! This is a game for adults and teenagers alike, but for best results, you'll want to split up into two mixed teams. In round one, each team will choose one of their members to go head-to-head in a quick-fire buzzer battle. From 'Famous trilogies' to 'Movies with a zombie in it', these two players must think quick, shout out a movie and slap the buzzer to put pressure on their opponent. The first player to run out of ideas loses the round (and gives their opponents a serious advantage in round two). We like to call round two 'Movie charades with a twist'. The player that won the buzzer battle picks up six movie cards, gives the hardest three to their opponent and keeps the rest for themselves. When ready, they'll get 30 seconds to get their team to shout out the movies by using three tricky techniques - acting out the film, making up a quote and describing them with just one word. Get them right quick enough and you'll have a chance to steal from your opponents. Take it too slow and they might get a chance to steal from you. It's an all-out race to collect a film from every genre and be crowned the new Blockbuster big-shots. with 200 classic movies, 60 category cards and a replica of a Blockbuster parking lot, you'll want to clear a space on your top 10 family party games - this is one that's sure to bring the entertainment home again and again. Requires two AAA batteries (not included).
This is a great game for family game night or at a game party. It was enjoyed by our entire family, including our teenage kids. As other reviewers have said, it would be great if they would make a booster pack as I can foresee that it will be easy to work through all of the cards pretty easily and somewhat quickly (depending on how often the game is played, of course).
AMAZING GAME! My first job was at Blockbuster video so when I saw this it was a must buy! The game is super fun and interactive and easy to catch onto. Sadly my video case came broken And the sign stickers were backwards so that’s why I gave 4 stars but I love all the thought that went into this game!
For this game for Christmas and played it with all the in-laws. We had a BLAST! Movie buff or not, you can get really creative with your game play. We especially love the packaging! It's not only nostalgic, but it keeps everything VERY well organized.
I hope they come out with expansions because if you play it often enough you might get through the cards several times.
Surprisingly great game!! We usually prefer games that are a little heavier but decided to try this out after seeing the positive reviews online and we were not disappointed! Lots of fun for movie fans!!! Hoping they may come out with an expansion later when we’ve gone through the same cards several times.
