How Did We Select All The Cards?
The 160 Awkward Family Photos® in the game come courtesy of the
popular website, 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
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

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
• 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 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.
Notes On Play
• Don’t forget to always have eight movie line cards at the start of
every turn.
• Players are encouraged to add their own Awkward Family Photos®
to the game. You can also add your own favorite movie lines to
the deck of cards by visiting and
printing/filling out blank cards from The Awkward Family Photos®
Movie Line Caption Game page.
