FAQ About ThE Theatrical Release
Q: What are the differences between this and the Test-Audience edition?
A: Each section has been expanded, we put in some more bits based on feedback/problems people were having with the first one, added in a lot more gags, and got some more awesome art added by Laura Watton. It's also now a 32 page A5 book, rather than a one sided sheet of paper with tiny, tiny text.
Q: Other than the book, what do I need to run 90 Minutes of Mayhem?
A: You're going to need friends to play it with, along with 5 dice, a pen, and a bit of paper per person. Probably a time keeping device of some description as well.
Q: Does 90 Minutes of Mayhem finally have a formal damage system?
A: Yes, we finally put one in. It's all explained in the book.
Q: What's the difference between The Beat Sheet, The Pitch, and The Script?
A: This is now really carefully explained in the book.
Q: Can I play makes action films from other decades?
A: Yes, even though everyone still knows the best ones were made in the 80's we have added in a lot more alternatives in the book. There are also different beatsheets to play with and a whole page of alternative genres.
Q: How long does it take to make a movie?
A: Pre-Production (actors making Stars, The Director putting together a pitch) should be about 10 to 15 minutes at the most. The movie itself should take 90 Minutes. Anything less is a TV Movie, anything else is sending the audience to sleep.
Q: Can I still make copies of original Test-Audience 90 Minutes of Mayhem and put them on my site?
A: Yes, but if you can include a link to the new version and maybe even buy a copy of the book we would be super grateful!
