cinephile – a card game for movie buffs


Can you list Bill Murray's entire filmography? If you answered yes, this may be the game for you.

Film buffs rejoice! There’s an official place to channel all your cinema nerdery (and no, it’s not the second round of pub trivia). It’s a card game called Cinephile, thunk up by two Los Angeles chaps whose obsession with the silver screen is rivalled only by their love for well-designed objects. (Needless to say, Cinephile's illustrated deck looks sleek as.)

There’s a few ways to play the game depending on your chosen difficulty level, but all rely on your ability to recall an actor’s extended filmography. If your idea of a good time involves figuring out what movies link the careers of Joaquin Phoenix and Winona Ryder, head right over here.
