A Big Picture egy nagyszerű társasjáték, 2 - 4 játékos részére, az átlagos játékidő rövidebb, csak 30 - 60 perc. A játékmenet erősen épít a ceruza-papír mechanizmusra.

Movies have the power to excite and inspire, to elicit gasps and tears from audiences, to linger in memory for a lifetime. There is no question movies have moved multitudes. But for you, a powerful Hollywood executive, movies are just an elevator pitch and a high-stakes gamble. Let those directors and critics sweat the details when it comes to a film’s “artistic merit.” All you care about is… the BIG PICTURE!
Big Picture is a card game for 2-4 creative players about funding and releasing big budget movies in the hopes of securing a financial hit. From your lofty perspective, movies only amount to a few ideas thrown together and backed up with a several million bucks so they can lure different demographics into the theaters. The real trick is in timing your movie’s release so it can go down in history as a box office smash rather than a humiliating flop.
Big Picture is a “Make-as-You-Play” game, which means that this game starts with a few materials: index cards, a print-out to track market trends, and a few coins. Players will modify cards during the game as they create the movies that will cement their place in the annals of Hollywood.
As movies are added to the deck, each future game will draw on the imagination of past games. The deck can grow indefinitely, preserving a legacy of movies and ideas. Players can return to the saga of their Hollywood executive careers over and over for gambles on brand new motion picture releases.
