About

Flip the Script is the party game that has you outdoing Hollywood, pitching movies your friends want to see. In this creative-improv game, players must create new movies based on their drawn criteria of genre, theme, and cast. Make sure you please your audience; the winner is determined by popular vote. Can you justify Arnie leading a serious drama set in Ancient Rome? Do you have the songs to make a smash hit musical about teen angst? It won’t be long before you’re debating whose movie will be a box-office blockbuster, and whose is destined for the bargain bin of your local supermarket.

Like Brad Pitt in Se7en, you reasonably want to know what's in the box. All cards will be 300gsm white-core cards in standard poker size. Worried about your knowledge of actors, or time-settings? Fret not, friend. All cards come with helpful additional info to assist you. For cast cards, this is their d.o.b and 2 examples of notable roles they've played. For genre cards, there are 2 examples of notable films in the genre. For themes/settings a short blurb has been included to help with time periods, and get those creative juices flowing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This project is UK, EU, US, Australia Friendly Shipping! No customs will need to be paid in these regions.

The game is being manufactured by Whatz Games, in China. It will then be shipped to the UK where individual shipping will be handled by GamesQuest. Both companies are very experienced and carry worldwide reputations for the quality of their service. Whatz Games lead times are 30-40 days after receiving final artwork, and Gamesquest aim to deliver individual rewards in 5-7 days. I have therefore set a target fulfillment date of October 2017 to cover this, and the time required to get backer details, make sure artwork is in the required specification, and to act as a contingency for any delays. Short of a disaster of Tom Hanks in Castaway proportions I believe this will be comfortable for us.

For the longer term future of Flip the Script, I am very excited for the potential scope of the game with ideas for future expansion packs that'll introduce more themes to the game, the addition of posthumous cast cards for the ultimate "What if?" pitch and many others. A pledge today not only helps get this game off the ground (and into your hands) but also writes the script to whole world of movie magic (or is that madness?).

Risks and challenges

Whilst all projects carry some risks, the risks of this project have been minimised by all possible actions already being taken. The game design is finished, all artwork complete, and rigorous play-testing carried out.
Manufacturing quotes have been received from Whatz Games, with whom the project will be undertaken; and Gamesquest will be handling the shipping with all associated costs accounted for. The only tasks remaining are to send the artwork to the manufacturer and finalise the order number.

There is always the possibility of unforeseen circumstances, or manufacturing/shipping delays so the estimated delivery dates have been set at a conservative date.
