Woot! SCHMOVIE was voted 4th runner up best game at Chicago Toy & Game Fair! Not too shabby considering the winner was Settlers of Catan, and #2 was Bananagrams! Over 20,000 people attended the awesome weekend event, which was held Nov 23rd and Nov 24th at Navy Pier in Chicago.
Game nights are fun. As long as there’s plenty of wine.
And nobody suggests Monopoly.
But there’s a new game that’s so much fun, alcoholic beverages aren’t even necessary. In fact, you’ll want to have all your wits about you for Schmovie: The Hilarious Game of Outlandish Films.
That’s because this game for “smart, funny people” takes a healthy dose of creativity and the ability to think quickly on your feet.
By combining two of our favorite things — puns and movies — Schmovie utilizes the random selection of a What? card, a Who? card and the roll of a genre die for players to create a fake movie title (either a parody of a real film or a completely unique name for the marquee).
Taking turns, one player is the Schmovie Producer and gets to determine which player has the winning title from all contributions. To better illustrate the objective, here are three scenarios we drew (and rolled) at random, along with possible answers.
What (Naughty) + Who (Magician) + Genre (Drama) = David Cop-a-Feel
What (Nudist) + Who (Meteorologist) + Genre (Romantic Comedy) = Cloudy with a Chance of Pete’s Balls.
What (Evil) + Who (Flight attendant) + Genre (Horror) = A NightmAAre in CoAAch ClAAss: A ReAAl-Life DocumentAAry.
The possibilities? Endless. And on second thought, hopefully the wine is, too.
Schmovie: The Hilarious Game of Outlandish Films, $29.95
