The Rules

Objective

Be the first to get three (3) complete Cast Sets:

  • Diva
  • Leading Man
  • Ingenue
  • Antagonist
  • Chorus x2

Setup

Deal one card at a time face up to each player in clockwise rotation until someone receives The Diva. The  first player to get a Diva goes first. Shuffle all the cards back into the deck and deal six (6) cards to each player, one at a time, and playing affects as necessary for The Scottish Play, Diva, and Leading Man. Put the rest in center for the draw pile.

Round of Play

Each turn a player may take up to three (3) of the following actions:

  • Draw three (3) cards from the draw pile. Pick them up one at a time and do any immediate action if necessary for the Diva, Leading Man, or Scottish Play. You may do this once per turn.
  • Play a card from your hand and perform the action listed.
  • Replace a missing card from a Cast Set previously affected by the Break A Leg card.
  • Lay down a Cast Set. Your turn ends with this action.

A turn ends when the player has concluded three (3) actions, they lay down a Cast Set, or they draw The Scottish Play card. At the end of any turn a player can not have more than ten (10) cards in their hand and must discard any extras to the discard pile. Do not play any effects associated with these discarded cards. Continue play until one player has three (3) Cast Sets in front of them.

Cast Sets

You must lay the Cast Set down all together, NOT one (1) or two (2) Cast member at a time. A Cast Set is comprised of:

  • one (1) Diva
  • one (1) Leading Man
  • one (1) Ingenue
  • one (1) Antagonist
  • and two (2) Chorus cards.

An Understudy can replace any of the roles. Once a set is placed you can not change it. (ex. If you played an Understudy instead of a Diva and then draw a Diva you are NOT allowed to replace the Understudy with the Diva.) Your turn ends when you play a Cast Set.

The Game

Stephen really got into tabletop gaming when he discovered Wil Wheaton's TableTop show on Geek and Sundry. His game collection quickly grew. One day as he was driving for his "real job" he was hit with a concept of a simple, fun, fast paced game. He wanted to combine his two passions, table top gaming and theatre. Thus Casting Call: The Card Game- Broadway was born.

He worked with his insanely talented artist, graphic designer, friend, and fellow performer Erin Carico to design the cards and bring his dream to life. Now Stephen and Erin are hard at work coming up with other versions and expansions to bring the the Casting Call family in the future. We hope you enjoy playing this game as much as we do. DFW, this is for you.
