In the movie-making game Hollywood, each player is a studio boss who tries to produce the most successful blockbuster. Players construct movies from game cards that they draft or purchase. Players compete to get the most popular stars to perform in their movies because this brings them more money and more Hollywood Awards (which are pictured on some cards).
First, players take turns choosing cards with the aid of drafting. Second, players purchase additional star cards (the strongest cards in the game) at the auction. Third, each player uses his nine cards in hand to make one or several movies. A movie must have a minimum of three cards: a Script, a Director and an Actor (or Actress). Additional cast members are optional, but they add to a movie’s total box office. Quality films bring a large amount of profit to the player.
Players go through three production years, then after the third year Hollywood Awards bring extra money to the players, and the richest player wins.
