Director's Cut: The Card Game

with deckbox

"All in all I have very much enjoyed Director's Cut. It is one of the card games that I always place in my bag or pocket "just in case". It can be taught to new players in a matter of minutes and is a perfect way to spend 15 minutes between games, or waiting for people [...]  it is a very elegant 2 player game."
Club Fantasci Review

"Overall, I enjoyed this game very much. The artwork is simple yet elegant, and the cards and mechanics all function easily and allow for a smooth and constant game play. [...] Fans of light card games, fans of vintage Hollywood, or anyone looking for some lighthearted quick fun should definitely check out this game."
Jim Stevens BGG Review

In Director's Cut: The Card Game, players are Hollywood movie producers in the early 20th century. Each player will try to put together the best movie-making teams in order to maximise the profit from each movie they make.

As movie producers, players will hire cast and crew from a central shared market, while trying to deny their opponent access to key cast and crew members. Once a player has assembled a set of cast and crew cards, they will play these cards to produce a movie from a shared set of screenplays. Each screenplay has its own set of cast requirements and awards cash and other bonuses, based on the quality of the production. The richest player at the end of the game is the winner.

Preview Strip

Because this game is played by only two players, competition is fierce and the amount of player interaction is high. You will have to make tough calls about when to deny your opponent access to particular actors, directors, composers and film editors, when to hold on to cards to score a better script, and when to sneak a script through before your opponent can grab it themselves.

A game of Director's Cut: The Card Game is over as soon as the draw pile of cast and crew is exhausted, meaning games are kept to a tight 15-minute duration and in-game resources are scarce.

In a very portable set you get:

  • 20 screenplays to produce, each featuring unique and authentic promotional material from 1910s, 20s and 30s Hollywood.
  • 50 cards representing actors, directors, composers and editors.
  • 32 money cards to track your income from the movies you produce and to buy future movie-making talents.
  • 4 cards containing the game's rules.
No other components are needed to play a full game. Director's Cut: The Card Game is suited to fans of set collection and resource management, movie buffs, families, and those looking for competitive two-player titles.

Product Information
Original electronic Click for more information
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
