How Did We Select All The Cards? The 160 Awkward Family Photos® in the game come courtesy of the popular website, AwkwardFamilyPhotos.com. From their vast library of photos submitted by families all over the world, we selected images that work best with the hundreds of enclosed movie lines. We also tried to include a healthy balance of babies, kids, adults, solo pics and group shots…with humor, awkwardness and ‘captionability’ taking precedent in our selection process. In selecting the 330 enclosed movie lines, we definitely did our research- watching hundreds of movie clips, scouring dozens of books and websites, remembering personal favorites from a lifetime of pop culture fascination, and asking for fan favorites through our social media channels. And just like with any Top 10 list, I’m sure you’ll wonder ‘how could the game not include ______________’. Well, certain comedies had 50+ possibilities. Many classic and award-winning movies are not represented, because we could not identify a quote that worked well with the photos. Because the game also appeals to families, we did not include movie lines with profanity or adult subject matter…despite the fact many work perfectly in the context of the game! But I’m sure you’ll love most of the 330 movie lines included and we encourage you to add your own favorites for many happy game nights playing The Awkward Family Photos® Movie Line Caption Game! 4-8 Players / Ages 12-Adult Contents 330 Movie Line Cards and One Box of 80 Large, Double-Sided Cards featuring 160 Awkward Family Photos® Object Of The Game Be the first player to win 4-5 rounds (depending on the number of players) by playing movie line cards that best caption the Awkward Family Photos® in play. The Set-Up 1. Place the box of Awkward Family Photos® cards in the middle of the play area. (Though you might be tempted, try not to look through all of the photos. The game is more fun when you’re surprised by the images!) Manufactured by All Things Equal, Inc., Miami Beach, FL 33139 The Awkward Family Photos logo and all photos are under license by Awkward Family, LLC. ©2015 by Awkward Family, LLC. All Rights Reserved. Movie quotes and titles are the property of their respective owners and are used under fair use and other legal principals. 2. Shuffle the decks of movie line cards and deal every player eight cards facedown. (Players should keep their cards hidden from other players.) The extra movie line cards should be kept facedown close to the play area. 3. The youngest player goes first. Play moves clockwise. How Do You Play? How Do You Win? On your turn, you will play the role of ‘The Critic’ and ultimately decide who wins the round. Here is how your turn works. If there are 4-5 players, the first player to win five rounds wins the game. If there are 6-8 players, the first player to win four rounds wins the game. 1. Pick the next Awkward Family Photos® card from the box (from the side that says ‘Pick New Cards From Here’). Look at both sides of the card and decide which photo you want to play, by placing that side of the card face-up for all players to see. 2. A fter inspecting the pic, all other players look through their eight cards and decide which movie line best captions the photo in play, by placing their selection facedown in the middle of the play area. 3. O nce every player has made their selection, collect and shuffle all cards (so you don’t know who played which card) and read aloud each movie line. (Players are encouraged to yell aloud the movie title if they know the reference!) • OUR ADVICE: You likely won’t know every movie reference, but pay attention to the movie’s genre and give each line a dramatic read. Table talk is encouraged! 4. You, ‘The Critic’, choose which movie line best captions the photo in play. Whoever wins the round keeps the winning card and the photo in play, and places both cards face-up in their personal play area. • Other players should be mindful of your sense of humor and whether or not you might know the movie reference...which may or may not effect your decision. However, other players are NOT encouraged to act like complete babies if their card is not picked. 5. The remaining used caption cards should be moved from the play area and not reused. Every player that played a movie line card (everyone except you, ‘The Critic’) is dealt one new movie line card so all players maintain eight cards at the start of every new round. Play moves clockwise...so the player to your left will be the new ‘Critic’ and draw the next Awkward Family Photos® card from the box. Three Alternate Ways To Play/Win 1. Turn In Four If you want...allow all players one chance to trade in up to four of their movie line cards for four new cards at the end of eight rounds. 2. The Director’s Cut After you have played the game a couple times, we recommend an alternate way of winning the game. The first player to win three rounds with movie line cards representing any three of the five genres (Drama, Comedy, Family, etc.) wins the game. 3. Not Enough Players? If you can’t play the game the way it’s meant to be played (because you only have 2-3 players), we recommend you have a trivia battle where players each grab a stack of movie line cards and take turns reading aloud movie lines. The first player to guess what movie the line is from wins the card. The first player to win eight cards wins.
