first Rotten Tomatoes card game is now available for pre-order. Designed in collaboration with Cryptozoic Entertainment, the multiplayer game puts your movie knowledge to the test. Or more specifically, it asks you to guess the Tomatometer score given to a movie based on critical reviews.
It’s an interesting twist on the typical movie trivia game. Essentially, each player starts with three “movie” cards, which are arranged in order of their Tomatometer scores. During your turn, the player to your right draws a “movie” card and reads the name of the movie along with additional information. Then guess where the Tomatometer score from the movie fits in among your current selection of cards.
If you can correctly guess where a new “movie” card fits into your current “Movie Collection”, you can keep it. But winning a round can complicate things: now you have four, five, or six cards in your collection, but you still need to guess where the new cards will fit.
And to change things up, players will occasionally draw a “Wild” card. In this event, all players are encouraged to guess a movie title, release year, actors, audience score, or tomato score.
advance orders for Rotten Tomatoes: The Card Game are available on the Cryptozoic Entertainment website for $25. Pre-orders will ship sometime in early 2023 – Rotten Tomatoes and Cryptozoic Entertainment don’t have an exact date yet.
