On December 7, Hachette Boardgames will release Movie Mind, a new visually-oriented trivia game from the Gigamic studio.

In Movie Mind, players form teams and race to answer a series of five color-coded questions about movies before the timer runs out in order to earn points.  To help them along the way, they can search for clues in the game’s deck of illustrated cards.  Once all the questions have been answered, a final bonus question is asked and the first player from any team who can hit the action token and give the answer can score.  After each team has three chances to answer questions, the team with the most points wins. 

A fully-cooperative version is also included, particularly for smaller groups, as well as an “expert mode” that requires players to not only name the right movie, but also identify the matching reference on the illustrated cards.

Movie Mind comes with a fan deck featuring 1440 questions about more than 800 movies, 80 illustrated cards, 1 sandtimer, and 37 tokens.  It was designed for 2 to 9 players, ages 14 and up, and games take about 20 minutes.  MSRP is $34.99.

December will also see Hachette release Scorpion Masque’s Zero to 100 trivia game (see “Hachette Boardgames Announces New Trivia Game by Scorpion Masque”).  Last month, the company offered Gigamic’s science fiction mystery game Critical:  Foundation (see “Investigate Futuristic Cases in ‘Critical:  Foundation’”).

Hachette acquired Gigamic in 2019 (see “Hachette Livre in Negotiations to Acquire Gigamic”).
