* MallSanta: Well, "Department Store Santa."



* PublicDomainArtifact: Several show up in ''Cannibal Pygmies,'' presumably meant as the treasure the heroes of the movies are questing to find.

Added DiffLines:

* LittleUselessGun: The derringer from ''Bushwhackin' Varmints'' has a negligible +1. Subverted if used in a gunfight with a character from another player's movie, where it jumps up to a +5, the same rating as most other guns from that and other games.

'''''Grave Robbers from Outer Space''''' is a card game released by Z-Man Games spoofing the making of low-budget horror movies. The idea is to have the highest Defensive Strength when someone plays a ''Roll The Credits'' card or the draw pile is empty. Defensive Strength is increased by playing ''Character'' (such as ''The Prom Queen'' or ''The Aged Vampire Hunter'') cards into your "movie" and giving characters ''Props'' like ''The Chainsaw'' or ''Big-Ass 'Fro'', and from ''Location'' cards (''The Funhouse'', ''Camp Lake Zirconia'', etc.) Other players try to lower each others' defense by killing characters with ''Creatures'' (''Dracula,'' ''Demonic God Up to No Good'', ''Killer Vegetables,'' etc.), negative Locations, and using ''Special Effects'' cards that can be used to perform things like doubling a Creature's strength or destroying another player's Location.
