      Hope we see all the songs that have been weeded out for too few votes return and then have a fresh set of runoffs to whittle the list to 36......?

      @Rosie Frater - Holy cow. I'm a HUGE Death Cab fan. I'd LOVE to see "Soul Meets Body" or really anything off Plans in this game.

    3. Rosie Frater about 11 hours ago

      I thought I’d missed my chance focus submit songs, but then HOORAY EXPANSION!
      “Steal My Sunshine” - LEN
      “Chelsea Dagger” - The Fratellis
      “Soul Meets Body” - Death Cab For Cutie

      Ok..... that’s kinda awesome.

      I think I’ll go change my pledge. :-)

      @KZ - These songs we did for a previous campaign are a good indicator of the song you'd receive.


      We sent out surveys to everyone who got the theme song level before, and that's how we crafted the lyrics and feel of each. Your answers to the survey will dictate what it sounds like. This one is one of my faves we made:

      How long is the theme song? Like how long can it be? Do we help with the lyrics? Genre?

    8. Aaron J. Amendola Collaborator about 14 hours ago

      We've opened up five more theme song pledges!

      @KZ - Great questions! We'll have a good idea of when we can deliver the PnP when we get the voting done for the 36-Card Expansion y'all unlocked earlier this week. We need to do typesetting on the cards and have our artist make the new characters for the $250 pledge level, but we *may* be able to get it out before all of that is figured out.

      We'll do our best to deliver accurate timelines as we nail down what our collaborators are able to provide us with.

      As for late backing, it might be too early to tell right now. I'm hoping to have an answer to that by our livestream tonight.

      @Creator When can we get the PnP?
      I'm excited for this one. I think that would help get people to late back.

      Speaking of late backing... will late backing count towards the SG total? I've seen it go both ways on different KS campaigns.

    12. Liz Brodzinski about 16 hours ago

      Yayyyyyyyyy!!! I am pushing HARD for the first stretch goal. I need to find a way to get Once Upon A December into this game. And definitely down with KZ's goal of free shipping as well.

    13. KZ (KingZombie)

      C'mon 30K! I'd love free shipping.

      If all of the current backers can throw 10 dollars more in, that would more than surpass the goal. I'm in. How about the rest of you?

      I'm going to give you four, in case you want to save the first one for the Musical Expansion. (There MUST be a Musical Expansion.)

      Over the Rainbow written by Harold Arlen, performed by Judy Garland
      Puff the Magic Dragon by Peter, Paul, & Mary
      California Girls by The Beach Boys
      River of Dreams by Billy Joel

      I also think a Christmas Expansion would be brilliant.

      @Jennifer Ward: being a HUGE TMBG fan I would love to see these in the game! Birdhouse In My Soul is incredible!

      @Diane Lopez: I would love to have Green Day in there just because it means a lot of teams would be yelling “GOOD RIDDANCE” at players!

      Diane Lopez 3 days ago

      Losing My Religion - REM
      Good Riddance - Green Day

      Being a huge TMBG fan, might I suggest:

      Birdhouse in Your Soul
      Doctor Worm

      @Joseph La Dow: Fantastic variety there. Fun fact: my grade school music teacher loved Rob Zombie and taught us to play that on the RECORDER. It sounded awful. Just awful.

      We are all musical theatre people, or work in the business here in Chicago. If we can make a dedicated Musical Theatre expansion work then you can bet we will.

      Dragula by Rob Zombie
      One Headlight by The Wallflowers

      @Jenny Seay - Jenny I'm gonna tell you right now I'll be voting for DMX. They're all great submissions but DMX is inspired.

      @Uncle Bob - Convoy is a great submission! More country!

      Here are my three suggestions:

      Addicted to Love - Robert Palmer
      X Gon' Give it to Ya - DMX
      Free Fallin' - Tom Petty

    37. Uncle Bob 4 days ago

      Convoy by CW McCall. :D

      I'd be amused (and probably the only one...)

      Hope this is successful - my wife will love this game.

      UPDATE: We're currently at 92 shares out of 150 for the 36-card expansion! Only a little more to go...

    39. Aaron J. Amendola Collaborator 4 days ago

      @Eliane Mullen - We playtested with some Elvis songs when we started development but little by little they got worked out of the deck. If we can get that 36-card expansion in the game then there's definitely room for him. "Hound Dog" and "Jailhouse Rock" would be A+.

      @KZ - We've been agonizing over whether to add instrumentals this early in the process. We had plans for an expansion of works that didn't have lyrics in them but if those types of songs get voted in then anything is game.

    40. KZ (KingZombie)

      How about some songs w/OUT words?

      Star Wars: Imperial March
      Scott Joplin: The Entertainer

      And the good-ole ABC song?

      If any of these have already been suggested, I apologize!

    45. Keithustus on April 13

      There's no Muse in the polling. :(

      Time to add

      Muse - Plug in Baby

    46. Aaron J. Amendola Collaborator on April 12

      @Heather Hostetler - We are definitely planning on producing genre/decade specific expansion packs in the event that we get funded. We're all big fans of different areas of music and cutting the deck down to 200 base cards was already super difficult! I'd *love* to get more 90's pop in there, or more modern billboard chart hits. We'll poll our backers after the campaign to see what they'd like to see more of and go from there.

      BTW - The Cardigans/Mariah Carey are GREAT picks. Maybe we'll see more of them in the future...

    47. Heather Hostetler
      on April 12

      It was so hard to narrow down songs to submit! I so wanted to include Mariah Carey, Florence + the machine, Amy Winehouse, The Cardigans, and so many more. I kept thinking of songs and artists that would be fun to sing who had unique riffs in their songs. Do y'all plan to release expansions to the game? You could do 70s, 80s, 90s song packs or "classic rock" etc. I would happily buy expansions to quadruple the card count. :)

    48. Aaron J. Amendola Collaborator on April 12

      @Heather - OOOH, I love that JT song and “Shut Up And Dance” is so good! I’ll need to check out the last one I don’t know!

    49. Heather Hostetler
      on April 12

      Finally submitting my three:

      Cry Me A River - Justin Timberlake
      Breakeven - The Script
      Shut Up And Dance - Walk The Moon

    50. Aaron J. Amendola Collaborator on April 11

      @Michael Burgett - Holy cow those are strong choices. I *LOVE* "My Hero."
