I’m new, but I would like to propose you a new game. It’s an idea I had some months ago, and I’ve been playing it quite a bit with one of my friends.
The concept is very simple, some would say minimalistic:
I think of a movie, and establish a list of 5 elements that appear in it, or that I associate with the movie. These elements can of course be objects, but also names, concepts, sentiments, etc. Then, you try to guess which movie I’m thinking about. After a certain period, if nobody has found the right film and if the players are asking for it, I give another element.
It’s then up to the person who has found the right movie to think of a new one, establish a list, etc. If nobody did, well, I guess I have to find a new movie.
I guarantee that it is actually easier than it sounds. Obviously, if you have any suggestions on how to improve it, we can change the rules the way we want to.
Here are some examples of (easy) lists of elements, to get a clearer picture of what I poorly tried to explain (I chose well known or recent movies for my examples):
Pulp Fiction :
- Racial Slur
- Fictional Brand
- Band-aid/Sticking plaster
The Irishman :
- Blue eyes
- Conflicting friendships
No Country for Old Men :
- Ventilation ducts
- Car accident
Atomic Blonde :
- (Great) Soundtrack from the 80’s
So, in order to start the topic, here’s my first list:
- End of an Era
- Long Take
- Awards Ceremony
I hope you’ll enjoy it!
