It's showtime! The iconic party game finally arrives on mobile. Play online with a friend, locally with a group (Pass N' Play), or against our wicked smart movie bots.

How do you play?
Name a movie. Now, name an actor in that movie. Then, name a different movie with that actor. Keep going until someone gets out. And, that’s it!

However, let’s say someone (Charlie) gets stumped, then he can use a hint (1 per turn). If Charlie gets stuck again, he can challenge the player who came right before him (Rose). If Rose answers correctly, then Charlie is out. If Rose answers incorrectly, then she is out! In games with multiple players, you keep going until only one player remains.

What are the rules?
#1 You cannot repeat an actor or a movie.
#2 Each player gets only one hint per game.
#3 You can challenge as many times as you want.

Many ways to play
In this app, we provide multiple ways to play with your friends, family, or neighbors with uncanny abilities at recalling obscure films.

Compete: Play others 1 vs 1 in turn based games. Play with 20, 30, 60 seconds or unlimited time.

Pass N’ Play: In this multiplayer version, add your friend’s names and play!

Bots: Challenge our movie bots to 1 vs 1 games. When you are ready for a challenge, try Daryl or Halle!

Practice: See how far you can go by yourself stringing movies and actors together!

Puzzle: Can you get from Tom Hanks to Angelina Jolie in 12 moves? Prove it!

Practice: Brush up daily on your knowledge of actors, actresses, and movies.

Popcorn is delicious… and useful
Bags of popcorn are the currency of the game. Use popcorn to purchase hints or extra games. Everyone gets 1 free Pass N’ Play game per day (This includes all players and hints for each player). Additional plays cost 1 bag of popcorn. In Compete, everyone gets 3 active games at any given time. To launch more games, pay one bag of popcorn. Hints costs one bag of popcorn as well. What can we say, we love popcorn.

An icon in the top right corner shows you how much popcorn you have left. Every player starts out with a large stash of popcorn. When you use it up, head to the concession stand to purchase more popcorn. Or purchase the Director’s Chair subscription for unlimited hints and games all month long. It’s super comfy and you’ll feel full of artistic vision.

Things to remember
- In order to use the app, you need to have a solid internet connection. This is IMPORTANT!
- In order to play Compete, Pass N’ Play, or the Bots, you need to login for an account.
- You can use your own given name or a username in the account section. This is how people will find you. Enter this after you sign up for an account.
- In Compete, swipe left to delete active or past games.
- When searching for actors / actresses, you can sometimes type a first or last name to find them more quickly.
- Use Research to find your own signature “moves” with lesser known movies or actors. You’ll impress your friends!

What’s New

Version 1.73

* Timer is here! How many actors and movies can you link together in 60 seconds?

* Hundreds of new movies and actors added to our game prompts. Expand your skills!

* Ten new puzzles added. Fair warning, they are challenging!

Players - one big change to the features you can access: The Director’s Chair now offers more than just unlimited popcorn for hints. With this $0.99 monthly pass, you can access Pass n’ Play, Research, challenging Bots in a 1v1 game, and Puzzles.

Without the pass, you can still play our most popular modes: Tournament, Compete (1v1), and the new Timer.
