"What The Film?!" Rises from the Rubble of Hurricane Irma

Hurricane Irma inspires creation of 200 art pieces included in a new party game. (February 09, 2018)

ORLANDO, Fla., Feb. 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- While helping with cleanup in Ft. Myers, Florida, from Hurricane Irma and after chain sawing trees all day, unable to fall asleep in their tent at night, neighbors Alex Mackey and Mike Szalajko came up with the idea of What The Film?! a party game about making movies and backstabbing friends.

Returning to Orlando after helping with the massive cleanup efforts, Mackey and Szalajko partnered up to form the company Lethal Chicken Games and finished creating What The Film?!.

"We wanted to create a game that was not just fun, but beautiful," said Mackey, co-creator of What The Film?!. "So instead of having just words on a card, we commissioned over 200 pieces of art to add to the cards."

"We also added some fun, hidden gems in the game, incorporating people we've enjoyed working with in the past. Not to give too much away, but Greg Louganis and The Piano Guys each have their own card in the game. And there are several more," Szalajko said.

Players combine three cards--actor, plot and set--to create a movie mashup such as a mailman, travels back in time, in a bouncy castle. Players then pitch their best movie to the group and all players vote on their favorite movie. The player with the most votes wins that round. The person with the most points at the end of six rounds wins the game. If a player is not as creative or funny as their counterparts, industry cards can be used to sabotage and steal points.

With award show season in full swing, and Hollywood Game Nights increasing in the mainstream, What The Film?! gives players the ability to join the increasing popularity of the merge of tabletop games and Hollywood glam.

"It's been hilarious to see really introverted people come out of their shell when playing the game," Szalajko said.

What The Film?! is on Kickstarter beginning February 13, 2018 and then will be sold nationwide.
