Cryptozoic and Rotten Tomatoes to Launch Rotten Tomatoes: The Card Game

New Party Game Will Enable up to 20 Players and Feature Easy-to-Learn Gameplay That Asks Players to Rank Movies Based on Their Tomatometer Scores

Lake Forest, CA – September 28, 2022 – Cryptozoic Entertainment, leading creator of tabletop games, trading cards, and collectibles, and Rotten Tomatoes, entertainment fans’ go-to resource for movie, TV, and streaming recommendations, today announced the upcoming release of Rotten Tomatoes: The Card Game.

Building on Rotten Tomatoes, the world’s most trusted resource for entertainment discovery and recommendations, this fast-paced party game asks up to 20 players to rank movies based on what they think their Tomatometer scores are. Mixing player knowledge and easy-to-learn gameplay, with some of the most famous films of all time featured on game cards, makes this the perfect game for any film buff looking to test their cinematic knowledge. Adding to the fun are Wild Cards, some that include inviting all players to shout out answers at the same time, making for a lively and interactive gameplay experience.

“At Rotten Tomatoes, we are obsessed with pop culture and finding fun and interactive ways to connect with movie fans, while enabling them to fully immerse themselves in the world of entertainment,” said Aaron Kohn, Rotten Tomatoes VP, Business Operations & Growth Strategy. “Rotten Tomatoes: The Card Game offers players a one-of-a-kind experience, infusing the world-famous Tomatometer scores with lively gameplay, while testing players’ movie knowledge.”

“We are beyond thrilled to partner with Rotten Tomatoes on this amazingly fun game that brings the brand to the world of tabletop gaming,” said Cory Jones, co-founder of Cryptozoic Entertainment. “Our teams have worked together every step of the way to choose the ideal movies for the 350 cards, the right look for the cards and box, and the most intuitive gameplay possible. We know movie fans everywhere will love it and hopefully we can do lots of expansions in the future!”

In the initial setup of Rotten Tomatoes: The Card Game, each player is dealt three Movie Cards, which are arranged in order by their Tomatometer scores and form each player’s Movie Collection. Then during each player’s turn, the player to their right draws a Movie Card and reads the movie’s title and other details except its Tomatometer score. The active player guesses where the movie’s Tomatometer score fits among their current cards. If they are correct, the card is added to their Movie Collection.

Wild Cards interrupt a player’s turn and include other players as they must guess either a movie’s release year, audience score, cast members, title, or Tomatometer score. The winner gains the Movie Card, and the Wild Card is discarded.

Rotten Tomatoes: The Card Game is slated to be available at retailers in early 2023 for a suggested retail price of $24.99. It can be preordered now from the Cryptozoic Shop.
