This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by .
This is my first big project and the starting point in my journey. After many years of testing and many months of letting it behind, now I can confidently say it is fully ready to be launch on Kickstarter for everyone to enjoy.
What is Red Carpet about:
Name movies of well-known actors, relate them to films and play cooperatively against the rival team in this original and adrenaline-charged movie trivia game!
Basic Dynamic & Progression :
The main idea of the game is to mention movies of the actors on the cards.
Draw an Actor Card, roll the dice and finally say movies of that actor relative to the indication on the dice to win points.
If you are in trouble you can probably use a help card or receive assistance from your friends, but beware, the opposing team may use an attack card against you to trump your progress.
Main Challenge & Obstacles:
You will have one minute to answer correctly. You probably know the actor, don’t let the timer pressure you.
How to win:
The team that has more points at the end of the last round, wins the game.
The game includes cards that can change the normal dynamic of the turn and that promote competition but also cooperativeness. After every round, it is time for a special turn where everyone plays simultaneously and try to match actors that have worked together with up to 20 Actor Cards on the table.
Red Carpet has multiple ways of playing, so you can choose the dynamic that you like the most, try a different one out or create one of your own if you want.
How to play
How to play: In this game, two teams will compete to prove which one remember more movies about the actors and actresses on the cards. In your turn, you basically have to mention an "x" number of movies, indicated by the dice, from the actors that appear on the cards. If you complete the task you get one point for every movie you said.
Turn sequence :
1. Draw an Actor Card
2. Roll two Dice
3. Start a 1-minute timer
4. Pick one of those 2 dice and say a number of movies from that actor or actress that equals the number of the die you have chosen. (Once you have picked a die you can’t change it.)
5. Score points
1 & 2 movies equal 1 point
3 & 4 movies equal 2 points
5 & 6 movies equal 3 points
Now it is the turn of a player from the other team.
Help Cards :
You can use these cards on your turn to help you out if you don’t recognize the actor or you don’t know that many movies.
The effects of these cards are individual, you can't apply the effects of your help card on a friend. Once you use it you must discard it.
You receive another Help Card or recycle it if you haven’t used it after a special turn is over. The use of help cards doesn’t affect the points of the chosen die when answering correctly.
If you want to help a member of your team you can sacrifice your Help Card by discarding it. If you do this you can assist him or her on that turn in any way you want and with no restriction, even by answering completely all the movies he or she has to say.
You can use these cards right after a member of the opposing team has answered correctly. Add a minute to the timer when using these cards.
If the rival team is not able to complete the task written on the Attack Card they don’t receive the points they were about to earn. But if they do complete the task, they will keep their points.
Finally, one of the best features the game has is the special turn, where every player can answer simultaneously. Up to twenty actors/actresses cards are put on the table and each team has 1 minutes to try and match which artists worked with whom in which movie. It is a blast!
FAST PACED MODE:
Teams playing their turn takes one card from the actors' deck. When the card is revealed, each player from that team can say up to two movies from that actor.
If players on that team don't remember more movies from that actor, they can continue taking out cards and discarding the previous one. If the team couldn't say at least one movie of that actor, the opposing team can interrupt and mention one movie and by doing this they win a point.
Each turn lasts 30 seconds and for every movie mentioned the team wins one point.
(No dice or special cards are involved in this mode)
Movies where actors play the same character count as only one movie (Example: Johnny Depp in Pirate of the Caribbean)
Actors' card once flipped should be put next to each other and in the center of the table. When a team grabs a new card they can't add more movies to the previous actor unless when combining two actors cards.
At any time any player of both teams can cover two actor cards with their hands and say a movie where those two actors have worked together. For each connection that team wins two points.

Game title and theme: Red Carpet - Party Game / Movie Trivia
The number of players: 2 - 8 (you can play it with up to 10 people but the flow is not the same)

- 180 actors/actresses cards
- 20 Action Cards (Help & Attack cards)

- 1 Timer
Rules overview: You don't need to know much about movies and actors to play this game. The main idea is to mention a few movies of well-known actors and actresses. The team that makes more points wins!
Unique features: Unlike other trivia games, there is no only one correct answer for one specific questions. Your answer may be different from other players and both can be correct. It is a collaborative game. It is not just for movie geeks (even though they will still have a lot of fun) because you don't need to know very specific things such as mentioning which movie won the academy award for best picture in the year 1999. Most actors are very well known and a lot of people watches movies on a regular basis and know between 1 to 3 movies of these actors and actresses.
Red Carpet awakens the affection and beautiful memories that we have associated with certain films and actors. By adding a timer there is a sense of adrenaline which makes it very engaging for everyone.
Why the QR code?
On an earlier version of the game we had the pictures of the actors but for legal reasons, we can't use their image. The QR code will help you recognize the artist and check if the answers that other player said are accurate.
A good way to maintain the flow of the game is to write on a separate sheet of paper the responses (name of the actor and movie) where players have doubts and check them at the end of the game.
People that are reviewing, sharing, commenting and supporting this project:
Hi!!! Today we offer you a preview game … RED CARPET created by André Fontana, directly from Buenos Aires, Argentina. This is a team trivia game that will put a strain on your cinematographic knowledge … do you feel the best ??? Be careful, because the opposing team can play against you the hated black cards.
The game takes place in three simple steps: 1-Turn an actor card from the covered deck 2-Roll the dice and decide what will be the number of films that you have to say about that particular actor/actress 3-Turn the hourglass and go !!!!
To make the game more fun every player draws and can play during the turn bonus cards (white) or malus cards (black) … the former, for example, can make the protagonist of the turn change or facilitate you by reducing the titles to one, of films to be called; the latter must be played during the opponents’ turn and can force him to put the films he has mentioned in chronological order or to have to mention two more!
We have played several times already and we had a lot of fun to recommend … on April 30th the Kickstarter campaign will be open but if you were curious and would like to take a look at it you can do it by connecting to the André website.

Risks and challenges
Like any card/board game, the challenges in producing it are very similar:
Finishing the Design: Red Carpet has a very minimalistic design. Similar examples of games would be Cards Against Humanity, We Didn't Playtest This at All, The Voting Game or Red 7.
For this reason, we don't need to invest more money designing characters or things of that sort.
Manufacturing: We already arrange the manufacturing cost of the game with AdMagic (the same company that produced Exploding Kittens, Cards Against Humanity and many more).
Shipping & Distribution: We already got in contact with a company called Shipwire. They specialize in distributing Kickstarter Projects among other things. Once the manufacturing phase is ready they will take care of the distribution.
Conclusion: We have everything in place to make this happen. If you like this game, please support this project and we will send you a copy!
