What started as an online movie plot generator became a game called Rotten Plots thanks to the guys at Dead Ends Entertainment. The goal is to create the most obscene and humourous movie plot.
I received a free copy of the print and play game to bring you this post. This post contains affiliate links.
Rotten Plots Review
As stated in their press release:
“We are confident that this game will hurt people’s feelings, and we’re okay with that.”
If you like Cards Against Humanity, Exploding Kittens or Disturbed Friends you will most definitely like Rotten Plots as well.
The game is currently on IndieGoGo to raise money to create the first round of the game. You can buy a print and play version which will allow you to play now and support the game on IndieGoGo.
The basic idea is you grab five cards of the 5 options (protagonist, trait/object, first action, antagonist, final action). The “executive producer” spins the genre wheel and players create a plot with their cards in the selected genre. Plots are read aloud and the executive producer picks the best plot for that round. Winner gets an award card. First person to get five awards wins the game.
There are expansion packs for more fun.
Rotten Plots Example
NOTE: This is one of the MILD possibilities. Do NOT play this game if you get offended easily or if you will be really upset if the game goes too far for you.
Rotten Plots I Came Up With:
COMEDY – An Only Child With a Terrible Laugh Must Hop the Fence at the White House While a Gorilla in a Gorilla Suit Buys a Horse and Doesn’t Feed It
PORN – A Sleepy Janitor With a Regrettably Small Number of Days Left on This Earth Must Give a HandJ*B for a Shot of Whiskey While A Man in a Taco Costume Shares Another Godda*n Buzzfeed Article
SCIENCE FICTION – A Fetus With an Awful Case of Every Disease Listed on WedMD Must Simultaneously Find a Cure for Both Cancer and AIDS While a Toddler on Meth Releases a Diseased and Starving Tiger Into a Toys ‘R Us.
So if you were offended or disgusted by the plots above, do not play the game, seriously those are TAME compared to the choices. I consider myself open minded, opposite of a prude and not afraid to joke about disturbing things and even I was shocked at some of them.
These two were listed under genre and I had to look them up: Rom-Com and Biopic.
Ooohhh. Romantic Comedy. I get it now. Apparently Biopic means Biographical movie. I’ll leave that here in case anyone else doesn’t know the terms.
Props for Humour
I’ve got to give extra props to the guys behind this game and company for their sense of humour.
