The Ultimate Movie Showdown - A card game for 2 players

Watermarked PDF

What is this book about?

While there are many great custom card games with their own set of unique and beautifully designed components, sometimes you don’t want to spend too much trying them out. This book offers a set of rules for a game, that leaves the abstraction of regular card games behind, without relying on any fancy components.

What is the theme of this game?

In this fast paced game, you and your opponent are cliche movie heroes or villains, challenging each other while recreating classic movie scenes. You should expect a lighthearted game, where your super villain character may tell his evil plan to the other contestant, who is apparently a 120 year old kung-fu master ... on the top of a moving train.

What do I need to play the game?

This game requires two standard 52 decks and a pair of six sided dice for 2 players. Things that you already have probably. You can print one page to browse your character of choice, but let’s be honest: most of you will use your smartphones to check your character sheet.

What is so unique about this game mechanic?

There is not always a winner and a loser of a fight, if you can’t put on a good show together, the audience will be displeased, and the director will "remove" the characters from the tournament. If the show was above expectations, the director may have mercy even on the defeated one too, meaning, the character progress won’t be lost. Different characters use different subset of cards, and also alter the standard rules, giving more variety to the game, and offering more fun. Also, the fight can be spiced up with several scenarios listed in this booklet. Different environments may alter the rules, and may change the way how the contestants fight.

How long will it take to learn the rules?

Don't worry, the core rules only take about 20% of this booklet. The other pages describe events and characters, and you don't need to memorise those at all.

Original electronic
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.
