How do I play?

Pick up to 6 actors or directors to create the lineup for your fantasy film.

They cost money so we start you with a balance of50,000,000 Fb*.

* “Fb” is short for “Fufflebucks”, the official currency of the FFL. Not a cryptocurrency.

How do I score?

Each week we check the US and UK box office top 10. If a person in your lineup is in a real film in the box office top 10, we increase your balance.

Let’s say Captain Marvel…

Captain Marvel

…is at 1 in the US this week…

No. 1

…starring Brie Larson…

…who is in your lineup, then we increase your FFL balance by 3,000,000 Fb.

The player with the biggest balance at the end of the season wins!

How much will my lineup earn?

Each week people in films at the top of the box-office chart earn 3,000,000 Fb. This drops the further down the chart the film goes.

But only the most important people in the film earn this full amount!

  1. Directors and top billing get 100%.
  2. The supporting cast get 50%.
  3. Cameos and voice artists get 10%.

We use our disretion to decide who is top billing versus supporting cast. Part of the game is predicting what decision we will make!

What determines a person’s cost?

We set a person’s cost based the films they have coming up this season and how big their role is.

But we're fickle, so another part of the game is spotting the bargains – good luck!
