Movie Night

Selected Option:
Suggested Price $1.22

An all-ages storytelling roleplaying game inspired by the movies of the 80's and shows such as Stranger Things.

I originally designed this as a game to play with my daughter who was really wanting to try gaming but was a bit too young to take in all of the mechanics. It then developed into this, which was playtested in both a school and at a few small, daring tables.

It's designed to be child-friendly and is ideal for use in schools as an education or expression aid, promoting relationships, character development, and basic maths and language skills. Due to its easy system (which resolves scenes based on one six-sided dice roll) it is also ideal for a quick game for experienced players which requires minimum preparation.

Want to play through a whole story from start to finish in one night? Need a quick fill-in for when one of your group is missing from your mega-campaign? This game is designed to focus on telling the story quickly and easily so you can focus on enjoying yourself.

A story can be played-out in an hour or two, like a movie, or can be strung together into a campaign. The rules for campaign play are included in here along with a whole host of other options.

The default setting for the game is playing as kids investigating strange events in their local town, but there are optional rules included for running adult characters and the system lends itself to playing in any world or style.

It includes 9 quick-build story ideas for adapting some of your favourite classic 80s movies; a random adventure generator; 5 different settings which cover classic fantasy, sci-fi in a galaxy far away, fairies, ponies and Saturday morning cartoon heroes; as well as an introductory adventure (which you can play solo). The names have been changed to protect the innocent (and copyright laws).

There is a blank character sheet, as well as printable tools for plotting out your stories and detailing scenes.

In the spirit of encouraging accessability to all, especially young gamers, this product is distributed without watermarks and any part of it can be printed out for the purposes of play.

Great game! We had a lot of fun coming up with fun and exciting movie ideas with kiddo (4yo) and really enjoyed this system! I have a full review here with more details about our game, how the system was, and what my kid thought too: [...]

A smooth-running take on 80's flicks with kids and teens as protagnoists. You can almost see the lens-flares! The rules are minimalist enough to learn quickly, and get out of the way when dreaming up adventures. Recommended. [...]

Very nice little game set-up based on American kids movies with a simple and fast, expressionistic playing system. A number of ideas for games and one fairly complete one. Maybe could have done with a few script examples of game actually being played [...]

Brilliantly simple game, played this with my Brother and young Niece (shes 9), it was so much fun exploring a game which I was easily able to theme to their favorite film (hint: it took place in a wizard school). With a bit of imagination this little [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
