Movie Cards

Movie Cards


The cast attempt to improvise a mini movie from suggestion. Two audience members in front row are handed action cards (Love Story, Montage, Slow Motion etc) which they can hold up at any time and shout out. When they are held up the actors use that in their movie, and actor off stage says the card on mic so whole room can hear. The game ends when all cards have been used in the movie.

Suggested Cards

  • Love scene!
  • Over the top death scene!
  • Fight!
  • Slow Motion!
  • Chase Scene!
  • 3D!
  • Montage!
  • CGI!
  • Sound Effects!

Additional Playing Tips

In the opening scene try to establish a solid relationship and location as quickly as you can, so you have a solid base to play with once the audience cards come in. Have fun with the audience cards and make the audience look good.
