About the event
*Sponsored by our friends @ Trick or Treat Studios*
Unboxing Thursdays we open, learn, and play games as we add them to our library.
This Thursday we are playing and learning Nightmare Productions & Trick or Treats.
Nightmare Productions: 7.1
Reiner Knizia's auction game about producing movies. In four rounds, players bid on chips representing genuine directors, actors, cameras, effects, music, guest stars, and agents (or in Nightmare Productions edition: creatures, locations, directors, musical conductors, cameos, and contractors). These all get placed on players' film strips to complete the movie production. So one movie might need 2 actors (in editions prior to Nightmare Productions), but no music or effects, and so on. As films are completed, the points value is marked and another film strip is taken. There are two parties (in Nightmare Productions edition: horror cons) each round where players get to pick from offers without paying anything. There are bonus points for the first films completed and best films, best directors (in Nightmare Productions edition: best creatures), and even the worst films.
The auction is a basic rising offer with passing until one winning bid remains. Players pay into the pot with contracts (in Nightmare Productions edition:
money), and the rest of the players share the pot each turn. So it's a closed economy with players trying to time to bid on what they really need to complete films.
See Movie Comparison - Traumfabrik for listings of movies and actors in each version prior to the Nightmare Productions edition.
Tricks and Treats:
In this fast and fun game of bluffing, you must divvy up your Halloween candy fairly. Or at least, make it seem like it's split fairly. If someone else can guess which bucket is yours, you'll be forced to give up your entire haul!
