Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum Official Board Game Review
Cleveland, Ohio – I want to go there. It is the home of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. Rock ‘n Roll and I grew up together in the 50’s. The popularity and social impact that its sound (blues, country, jazz, and gospel combined) played on piano, sax, drums, and guitar was the phenomenon of its times. I remember back when…but I do not remember or know it all. Now my son-in-law know everything about rock. Just ask him.
For a while I have been stumped about what to get this man of strong opinions for Christmas that he doesn’t already have, that is fun. My holiday gift giving forbids clothes, necessities, and work fare. Then I came upon Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum Official Board Game. It is a winner.
Everyone loves trivia, right? The versions of the games that grew from the original Trivial Pursuit are many and varied. Selchow & Righter manufactured Disney, Star Wars, Millennium, Warner Bros, Biographies, Lord of the Rings, Globe Trotters, Pop Culture, Nickelodeon, Beatles, Rolling Stones…. Now Ideal enters with its Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum Official Board Game.
Inside one collectible tin, players will find one trivia board game, 887 trivia cards, 87 performer cards, 30 tokens, 6 playing pieces, 150 singles, and 2 dice – all the components for a challenging game and hard questions for 2-6 players aged 10 and up. Its 86 spaces and 1,700 questions will determine who knows it all. This game is for those who loves music and its history.
Players begin as a garage band and move through stages like discovery, big break, red tape, success, and fame. Winning or losing depends on their knowledge of pop culture, musicians, songs, and dates. House rules, and people playing as couples or teams should be considered when some playing lack an R&R background. This game is definitely for the young at heart more than the young.
The SMRP of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum Official Board Game is $29.99. It is available online and many stores including Kohls, Walgreens, and Walmart.
