One player reads a movie line and trivia hints to teammates. Then the fun begins. Charades, pointing, anything to get your team to guess as many answers as possible. The opposing team can steal any unanswered questions. A great party game!

I don't know why I'd never played this one before, but in the last few weeks, it has become the Party Game of choice in my gaming group. It's fun but very tough if you only have two or three people on a team. But that means it's easier and perfect for larger groups.
A couple of suggestions to improve the game. The Reel Celebrity category is much easier than the others. To even things back up, you can:
1. Give only 2 points for a right answer in the Reel Celebrity category.
2. Don't use the Reel Celebrity category at all. When you land on an Orange space, you get to choose your category among the others.
3. Change the spaces on the board so the Orange spaces have at least four spaces between them. That way, a team can't go from one Orange space to another with a right answer.
We also let the reader give the hints for free.
We play with close friends as we try new wines. The questions keep the conversations flowing and the wine jogs our memories for answers. Reel Schpeel keeps everyone involved with the hand action and the questions are well researched. I always thought I knew everything about my favorite movies, but Reel Schpeel showed me up!
I love to pull this game out when I am entertaining. It's great with a large group of people. I am a movie buff, so not only do I enjoy Reel Schpeel's content but it is fun to play. It really encourages me to brush up on my movie trivia. We love to play mini versions at the office.
