About

The Cinelinx team has been hard at work developing new expansions for our best selling card game Cinelinx: A Card Game For People Who Love Movies and we need your help getting them into production. 

Based on extensive feedback from our original backers, as well as newer players, we've narrowed down our next two expansion packs:

  • The 80's Expansion
  • Blockbusters (70's - 2017)

If we hit our funding goal then each expansion set will come with 54 cards that integrate seamlessly into our original game. If we raise more than our goal then the size of each deck will increase!

We have coverage! Thanks to SlashFilm for the write-up!

In 2014, with the help over 1,000 Kickstarter backers, the Cinelinx card game went from a dream to reality and shipped to movie lovers around the world. We showcased the game as part of the Indie Megabooth at PAX East in Boston, PAX West in Seattle, and at SxSW in Austin, TX. 

Since then, we've released three expansions, the Cinelinx big box, and an app version of the game. Now we're coming back to Kickstarter, where it all began, to ask for your help as we raise funds to release two new expansion packs! Everything we raise, as well as some of our own funds, will be used to print and ship these expansions to backers fresh off the printer!

We're also offering a pledge level that includes the ability to add a custom card to your deck! (see rewards section for details)

As our way of thanking you, all backers will receive an exclusive 'Backer Only' mini expansion, and we will add your name to phase two of our backer wall on the official game website.

Cinelinx is a new take on movie trivia games sure to please film and trivia fans of any level of skill or knowledge. Each card has an actor, movie, genre, quote, or character and players take turns finding connections between them.

Example: An ACTOR can connect to another ACTOR by announcing a movie they have been in together. An ACTOR can connect to a MOVIE if the actor was in that movie. A MOVIE can connect to another MOVIE by announcing an actor who was featured in both movies, and so on.

 It’s like dominoes for movie buffs!

Fees Vary for International Add-On Shipping: Add $4 per add-on for International Shipping, or contact us for assistance.

We've estimated shipping for April 2018. We will begin shipping orders as soon as we get the expansions in our hands, but we've added a small buffer to account for delays. 

If you choose the Expedited Shipping* Add-On this means your expansions will be shipped via Air from our manufacturers, and you should receive the game about 3 - 4 weeks ahead of our regular shipping schedule.

*This shipping option was added based on feedback from our previous campaign.

     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. Once artwork has been finalized (and funds raised) we can go right into production.
