Pitchstorm: Awards Season
A very prestigious expansion for Pitchstorm. This deck introduces Awards, which are a totally new type of card to the game. At the start of each round, the table draws three awards cards. Then at the end of the round, the table votes to give these awards to the movies that were produced that most earned the award (or who sent the nicest gift basket).
Pitchstorm is a party card game that puts players in the position of unprepared writers pitching movie ideas to the world's worst executives.
During each round, one player acts as the executive, and everyone else attempts to pitch them movie ideas based on a character card and a plot card. At some point during each pitch, though, the executive may add a note card to the pitch and force the writer to add some really terrible new elements to their movie.
At the end of the pitches, the executive chooses which movie they liked the best, with that person scoring a point, then the game continues from there.
In groups of 6-12, players split into teams of two and must work with a partner to pitch their movie. This also means that there are two executives, and each of them gets to play a note card onto the pitch, leading to some pretty ridiculous movies.
