Movie Buff inventor, Justin Purvis, is a talented improvisational comedy performer, coach, teacher, and producer. He has studied with Improv Olympic, Annoyance, and Groundlings Theaters. Justin also performed, coached,and taught with Washington Improv Theater from 2005-2014. He’s performed in improv festivals across the country including the Capital Fringe Festival, and he earned his BA in Theater from the University of Maryland, College Park.
In 2009, Justin began figuring out how to best transform Movie Buff into a great card game that could really propel play through twists and turns that infuse energy, and keep things interesting for players of all levels. In addition to the Actor and Movie Trivia Cards, he introduced Role and Quote Cards and Strategy Cards like Edit, Cut, Take 5, and Reverse Angle, so that it was truly anyone’s game since winning now relied on not only movie knowledge, but also the cards each player was dealt.
Movie Buff has morphed into a truly unique game that can be enjoyed by players over and over again. Its replay-ability really sets Movie Buff apart. No matter how many times you play it, the game will always be different. The X factor is YOU! Each player brings to the table their unique movie knowledge and truly creates the game. It’s easy to learn, fun to play, and hard to put down.
