ROCK SCIENCE: New Trivia Boardgame For the Metalheads!
Can you say ‘perfect metalhead Christmas gift’? Rock Science is a new trivia boardgame about rock’n’roll. Swedish rockers, including legendary Nicke Andersson (Imperial State Electric, The Hellacopters, Entombed) helped with creating the game. The goal was to create unique entertainment out of what every rocker talk about during the beer drinking pre-partys. With 2500 questions (in English) about hundreds of influential rock bands from the 60s til present time, this is exactly what has been accomplished. The game covers hard rock, heavy metal, NWOBHM, thrash metal, glam, grunge and extreme metal with questions about bands like Kiss, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, AC/DC, Iron Maiden, Motörhead, Guns N’ Roses, Venom, Pearl Jam, Sex Pistols and Rolling Stones to name just a few.
Players compete to be the first to reach the finish line through answering questions. Question categories include rockers, albums and songs, and players may also be asked to hum riffs. All questions have three different difficulty levels – the higher difficulty a player choses, the higher the possible reward in terms of advancement on the board. Another important game mechanic is betting – you constantly bet on the knowledge of co-players.
How many times has rockers all over the world quarreled about who did what on a specific album, how a certain song came about, which rock’n’roll star that died in the most spectacular way – everything that makes rock more than just music? The answer is: very often.
The first edition of the game comes with an exclusive CD-single with a specially made theme song written by Nicke Andersson and performed by Imperial State Electric.
