About this project
Cinema of Attractions is a satirical party game from the creators of the Cinelinx card game. In Cinema of Attractions, you are the FILMMAKER pitching over-the-top, high concept films to a STUDIO in hopes of snagging a Green-Light!
The Cinelinx team has been developing the game since 2014, and we’ve spent countless hours play testing, trying out different decks, and putting on various rounds of polish. We couldn’t be happier with how it’s turned out. We’re still putting the finishing touches on the artwork but the core of the game is completed and will be ready to print by the end of June.
All we have to do now is raise $16,000 before this campaign ends so we can put Cinema of Attractions into production! If you’ve played our first card game (Cinelinx) then you know we’ve been down this road before. We learned a lot from our last card game and we're confident that we can get the game in your hands efficiently and on schedule. See the Risks and Challenges section for our guarantee!

If our pledge levels don't quite cover what you would like, then please feel free to add additional items to your pledge from our list of add-ons. Simply increase the amount of your pledge based on the add-ons you'd like. We'll send out verification emails when the campaign ends to confirm your order details. U.S. Shipping is FREE. Add $2 for each item for shipping to Canada, $3 for each item shipping anywhere else. If you have questions about add-ons please see our FAQ or reach out to us any time.
EXCLUSIVE CINELINX EXPANSION: We're really excited to be offering an Exclusive 52 card expansion to our original card game. The limited edition Cinelinx expansion will feature cards themed along the lines of 'Cinema of Attractions' and will only be printed one time!
Custom Card Details: Now you can add a customized card to your Cinelinx or Cinema of Attractions game! Simply add the correct dollar amount to your pledge for the custom card add-on. When the campaign ends we'll reach out to you so that you can tell us which favorite MOVIE, ACTOR, or QUOTE you want for your custom Cinelinx card. If you'd like a custom Cinema of Attractions card we'll work with you to create a great one! These cards will be custom printed on high quality playing card stock and will be unique to your deck!
- Reward levels include free U.S. shipping.
- Shipping to Canada ranges from $12 - $20 depending on pledge level. Shipping rate is shown once pledge and country are selected in sidebar.

Cinema of Attractions is a heavy card game. We've tried very hard to offer the lowest shipping possible to backers outside of the United States. Shipping fees will be shown once you select a pledge level in the sidebar.
We're really just a group of guys who really love movies. Between running Cinelinx.com and the Cinelinx game we all watch way more movies than we'd care to admit!

So how will the money be spent?
Development up to this point has been completely out of pocket, but we can't take this next step without your help. The money we raise on Kickstarter will be specifically used to accomplish printing, shipping, and processing fees.
How Can You Help?
We appreciate any pledges made to the project but you can also help by spreading the word to your friends in person and online!
What happens next?
For now, we’ll be eagerly awaiting your help and will be around to answer any questions you may have. When the campaign ENDS we will send out surveys to all backers in order to collect the necessary information we need to fulfill rewards. Kickstarter will release the funds within two to three weeks and then we'll work on finalizing our order with the manufacturer. Don’t worry, as we did with the original Cinelinx game, we’ll be doing our best to keep you guys updated every step of the way.
Risks and challenges
There is always the risk of printing, shipping, and distribution delays, but we’ve done this before and are confident we can do it faster and more efficiently this time around. Over the last couple years, we’ve developed a great relationship with our manufacturer and really have a good handle on our timeline. The game has been researched, designed, and tested over the last couple years, so once artwork has been finalized (and funds raised) we can go right into production.
As we mentioned earlier, we are willing to offer you a guarantee. If you make a pledge to our campaign and your order doesn’t ship by November 30th 2016, we’ll offer you a full refund. The ONLY exception to this offer is if our order is somehow completely lost or damaged before it gets to us (we think they call that force majeure).
This is a game that we are very excited about, and once you have it yourself, we are confident that you will enjoy it just as much as we do. You have our pledge that we will do everything humanly possible to get this game out the door and on its way to you by November.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
In order to avoid having too many pledge levels we're using an Add-Ons system that is pretty common on Kickstarter.
Start by choosing the pledge level you are most interested in and then manually increase your pledge by the dollar amount specified in the Add-ons section for any additional items you'd like to add.
When the campaign ends we will send emails to verify your exact order details before we ship anything.
Free U.S. shipping is included at all levels.
Shipping to Canada ranges from $12 - $20 depending on which reward level you choose.
Shipping anywhere else ranges from $15 - $25 depending on which reward level you choose.
If you add additional items to your order your shipping charges will increase based on the guidelines in our Add Ons section. If you have any questions please reach out to us and we will get back to you as quickly as possible.
We've found that 4 - 8 players allows for the best playtime, interaction, and variation. However, the addition of cards via expansions allows you to increase the amount of players to a recommended 4 - 12 players.
The rules are simple and can be explained in under 60 seconds. Any additional questions are usually answered by seeing one or two pitches in action.
Yes. We initially launched our campaign in April and decided to cancel and relaunch in order to improve our campaign. If you have any questions feel free to reach out to us.
We're offering an exclusive 52 card Cinelinx Expansion that can only be ordered through this campaign. The expansion will be themed along the same lines as Cinema of Attractions and be full of high-concept, spectacle films with a few surprises. We thought this would be fun way to reward backers with something unique. This expansion will only be printed one time.
This is an exclusive 20 card 'Cinema of Attractions' expansion that will go out to backers of the COA game. We thought that was a good way to reward backers with a unique expansion for supporting our campaign. Only campaign backers will receive the expansion and it will never be reprinted.
