Out of the Box calls it "The Game Where Movie Fans Connect!"
"Can you name a film taking place over the holidays AND features a character in a uniform? Then Cineplexity may be the movie game for you!" Players try to be the first to name a movie that meets the criteria on two different Cineplexity cards.
Each of the 315 cards has a description from one of nine categories: Actors, Characters, Critiques, Genre, Production, Props, Scenes, Setting and Theme. Two cards are shown at a time. Who will be the first to think of a movie set In the Future that Contains Foreshadowing? If you come up with a name that players agree satisfies both cards, you win the oldest of the two cards, and a new card is added. So now the challenge might be to find a title that Contains Foreshadowing and has a Dance Sequence. And so on. If everyone is stumped you add a third card, and they must find a title that satisfies two of the three cards. Six to ten points (cards) are needed to win, depending on the number of players.
Cineplexity was developed over the course of several years. JonMichael (JM), John and Sean all met in high school in Hudson, Wisconsin. When they were waiting or traveling, they would play a movie game akin to the old Kevin Bacon game.
The idea for Cineplexity in its current format actually began with the publishing of Word Freak (about competitive SCRABBLE). JM tried to cast the movie game as a tile placement game. John thought little of this idea, but thought that a card game version may work well. They brainstormed the first deck of cards and brought Sean on board to help refine the cards as well as sell the game.
JM, John and Sean regarded their design as a deck of cards for which they developed many different games, but it was Out of the Box that ultimately developed the play style for the base game.
