About

Join our notifications list to be one of the first to know when the new campaign goes live! http://coa.cinelinx.com

Have you ever thought to yourself, “I could come up with a better idea for a movie than Hollywood?” Well here’s your shot! (well... sort of)

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 high concept films to a STUDIO in hopes of snagging the proverbial Green-Light. No good film has ever started without a great pitch, so you'll want to be sure to balance your high-concept pitch with solid storytelling.

At last, there’s a party game for the filmmaker in all of us!

Prototype (not final Artwork)
Prototype (not final Artwork)

The Cinelinx team has been developing the game since 2014, and we’ve spent countless hours play testing, trying out a multitude of 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 we’ll be ready to print in June.

All we have to do now is raise $20,000 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. With that experience, we are willing to offer our supporters a guarantee: If your order doesn’t ship by November 2016 we’ll offer you a refund (see details in the Risks and Challenges section below).

 What's in the box?

The core game will have 420 cards that include Story Cards, Studio Notes, Action Cards, and Greenlight Cards. We will also include a few Blank Story and Studio Note cards in each deck so that you can customize the game to your tastes. 

The game consists of four decks: Story, Studio Notes, Green-light, and Actions.

Before gameplay begins, each player is dealt TWO cards from the ACTIONS deck that they may use to swap cards or to strategically block an opponent before a round begins. They also draw EIGHT cards from the Story Deck.

During each round, players are Filmmakers that must use cards from the STORY DECK to pitch their movie ideas to a rotating Studio Head. The Studio Head will use a card from the STUDIO NOTES deck to set the tone for the filmmakers, and will choose one pitch to Green-light. 

If the STUDIO green-lights your pitch, you get to draw from the deck of Green-light cards in order to see how your film was rated by critics. The filmmaker who has produced the most successful films after three rounds wins!

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.

Achievements (Stretch Goals) are under development. Let's get funded! 

We're really just a group of guys who really love movies and have spent a little time within the industry ourselves. Couple this with our experience in running the Cinelinx site, and we have a fairly broad view on the film industry altogether. The primary team behind Cinema of Attractions’ development are:

  • Gabriel Barboza, Founder of Cinelinx.com, co-creator of the Cinelinx card game and Cinema of Attractions. 
  • Garrett Perno, Managing Editor at Cinelinx.com, co-creator of Cinema of Attractions. 
  • Jordan Maison, Founder of Cinelinx.com, co-creator of the Cinelinx card game and Cinema of Attractions.

Special Thanks: Nick Vollmer, Josh Dunford, Matt Malliaros, Jason Dilworth, and Linda Becker.

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 the following:

How can you help?

We appreciate any pledges made to the project, but there are also other ways you can contribute.

What happens next? 

For now, we’ll be eagerly awaiting your help and will be around to answer any questions that we can at this point. 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

As with any new product, 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. After all, we don’t have this kind of money laying around and we really don't want to have to take out a second mortgage to issue refunds!
