THIS JUST IN! We are thrilled to announce that SCHMOVIE has just hit the shelves at Indigo, Chapters and Coles in Canada! It’s available in stores, as well as online. We’d love to see it for ourselves on the shelf, but since we’re here in NYC, we’ll live vicariously through your photos. Snap a #SchmovieSchelfie and tag @Schmovie on social media to be entered to win a custom Schquid Trophy to add to your game box!
Thanks to our awesome backers, our brand new adult party game, Spank the Yeti, has been successfully funded on Kickstarter! We raised nearly $33k, tripling our funding goal. And… since we unlocked a super special stretch goal, the splat on the front of the box will even glow in the dark. Awesome.
Miss the Kickstarter? You can still pre-order the game HERE, either on its own, or in a “Galactic Pack” along with Schmovie! This is particularly great for international fans of Schmovie… as the game is currently only available in the U.S. and Canada.
We are thrilled that Schmovie was chosen as a featured game this year for Geek & Sundry’s annual International TableTop Day! Game lovers around the world will gather at stores and community events on Saturday, April 30th to play their favorite games… and discover new ones. And Schmovie was included in Geek & Sundry’s boxes sent to all 300 locations around the world. Schweet!
The best part? The exclusive schwag we included in each box: 10 sets of Felicia Day & Wil Wheaton Schquid Trophies.

This just in from Famadillo.com… an awesome review of Schmovie:
“BEST.GAME NIGHT. EVER. This was all my entire family said after our night last weekend playing the hilarious and super creative game Schmovie. I have to say; I am not the board game fan and this experience may have turned me completely around! The game comes as a follow-up to “Schmovie for ages 13 and up“. The time around the Brooklyn based company (Galactic Sneeze) has mastered the art of fun the whole family can enjoy!
Ok: here is how you play: roll the “genre die” to determine your round’s type of film (Sci-Fi, Horror, Rom-Com, Drama, Action or Pick your own) grab your self your “premise cards” (who, what) and you have your recipe for writing a funny/unique/clever movie title. Was yours the best? If so, you will be awarded a “Schquid” trophy for your hard-work. Once you acquire 4, you are the winner!
My house laughed for a solid hour and a half. Here is the best part: no matter how old or young your players everyone can feel included and actually win the round. Our table included someone 50, 40, 30 and even 7 and each round was truly better than the next. The entire game is innocent “made up” fun and it was great to forget about the world and just really have some fun. Check out the company on Twitter @schmovie to indulge in their clever #hashtag Monday games. I am a real fan! Do yourself a favor and scoop up the game https://schmovie.wordpress.com/buy/. It is available super easy on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B014RVKL9W.”

We’re excited to have a schweet little cameo in CBS’s coverage of This Year’s Hottest New Trends at NY Toy Fair 2016! And we think Schmovie looks pretty darn good on TV. Just see for yourself…
Here are some of our favorite parts:
The presentation is, for lack of a more creative word, “adorkable.” The bevy of little Hello Kitty-Meets-Lovecraft Schquid cards is really appealing. Each one has a little personality from pirate to corporate manager to bunny. Getting to choose the one little trophy you want (our girl called “Ninja” before the game even started) is an incentive for doing your best in the challenges.
The game can be adjusted for different age groups. Since this is all about the minds of the players, answers can be as tame or racy as the crowd allows. I like a being able to not hold back a bit of the blue streak when it’s a warped-humor-loving adult crowd, but I appreciate not having to tell my kids, “No, you can’t play this game. It’s just for grown ups.”
