A That's a Wrap egy közepesen összetett társasjáték, 2 - 5 játékos részére, az átlagos játékidő 45 - 75 perc. A társast, a bonyolultsága miatt, csak 12 éves kortól ajánljuk kipróbálni. A játékmenet erősen épít az aukció/licit, a kártya húzás és a kockadobás mechanizmusokra.

Congratulations! You and a group of other movie directors have been hired by a major film studio on a five-year contract. All you have to do is make one movie a year, simple right? By the end of the contract, only the director with the most of the prestigious Oskie awards will get an extension, so watch out for your competition.
That’s a Wrap is played over four rounds, each one represented the cycle of a movie’s production. As directors, the players build the movie from scratch, first choosing a genre after seeing the list of actors and scripts available for purchase. Each genre, actor, and script have different values that reflect their ability to make money and win awards, with some cards being more specialized in either field. After players choose their genres, they purchase scripts and hire actors via bidding. Before any movies can be released, they have to go through a bit of studio meddling; each player plays a card that may help their movie or hinder others’. If a certain movie is a passion project, a player may elect to keep their film from being meddled with once per game. After movies are shot and finished, they go to market, where each movie makes some amount of profit. However, the season isn’t over until the Oskies are awarded. The highest box office film takes home the Audience Choice award, and the more artistically inclined ones can vie for three different awards, including for screenplay, performance, and director. Each director will go through this cycle four times, making a different film each time, and progressively getting access to more impressive genres, higher quality scripts, and A-List actors. At the end of the game, the director with the most Oskies wins!
