How to Play Famous Movie Lines

Your goal is to be the first player to reach 20 points by guessing cards correctly. When you correctly guess a card, you place it next to you and tally your points. Each card has a different point value based on its difficulty.

  1. Choose a player to go first and roll the die. This player is considered the “Director” and draws the first card for the other players. The Director draws a card from the pile that matches his roll result.
  2. The Director either reads the card aloud or shows everyone the card (while covering the answer on the bottom). The person who guesses the card correctly first wins the card and adds it to their collection.
  3. Then, another player becomes the Director and performs the same action (rolling/drawing). If no one knows the movie and cannot guess the card, the Director keeps it for themselves!
  4. If there is a tie between players guessing for the same card, the Director gets to decide which player gets the card.
  5. The first player to tally up 20 points wins the game!

Frequently Asked Questions

Why are the cards split into 4 decks?

Each deck provides a different guessing experience:

Deck 1: Guess what movie the famous line is from.

Deck 2: Finish the famous movie line.

Deck 3: Guess the movie by reading an alternate name for it.

Should I read the cards aloud or show the cards to the other players?

On the face of the card, there will be a colored banner and a point value listed.

Red/Impossible: 4 points
