About this project
Get Signed Board Game is a unique, music trivia game that expands all genres. The object of the game is to be the first of your opponents to make it from an unsigned artist to Get Signed! Throughout the game there are series of real-life opportunities and setbacks that can make or break you! In this fun example of art imitating life, this entertaining game will have you truly feeling like you are on the grind to become the next big star!
The board game consists of one (1) 18x18 game board, tri-fold 8.5 x 11 rules page, one (1) 6-sided number die, six (6) game pawns, sixty (60) credential cards, and 475 skill cards (consisting of 300 trivia, 100 battle and 75 waiting room cards). It is played with 3-6 players.
The game is based around various musical genres and anyone would be able to successfully participate, regardless of their musical background. The aesthetic design of the game is multi-colored and reflective of various musical elements. As you progress in each level of the game, the images of the playspaces also progress from record to tape to cd, showing the evolution of musical listening devices.
How to Play
Get Signed board game is roll of the die, trivia game. Each player begins on the “Unsigned” spot and takes turns rolling the die to move the appropriate number of spaces. You follow the instructions on the space you land on to continue game play. There are 4 phases, “The Grind”, “Demo”, “Meet the Label” and “Waiting Room”, where you follow the same sequence of play and answering questions to gain credentials and advance.
In the first phase, aptly named “The Grind”, your goal is to receive three credentials to move you into the next round. You will engage in a series of trivia and battle challenges in an attempt to obtain “Street Credibility”, “Studio Access” and “Demo” credential cards. You have to start at the bottom to make a name for yourself and just like life, there will be setbacks and chance meetings on your journey. You may spend a while in this phase and some may never get out, but like life, it will take perseverance and determination to advance to the next phase!
Once you receive these credentials, you will move to the Demo phase. Here you follow the same pattern of challenges in attempt to earn 3 live “Shows” and 1 radio “Airplay”. Once you’ve earned a little more notoriety and you’ve got some local radio play, the record labels will be looking your way, and its time to show them what you’ve got! Be careful in this phase, if you make a wrong turn on your career path, you may land on the wrong spot and end up “Back in the Grind”
You will now advance to the Meet the Label Phase. Here, you must obtain credentials for “Image Consultant”, “Skill Development” and “Industry Buzz”. You’ve got to show the label that you are ready for the big moment and prove that you are the one they want.
Finally, you will move into the Waiting Room. The pressure is on! Sweaty palms and all, its “go” time! No more battles, no more competition – its all about you! Prove that you’re a star by correctly answering two challenging questions and you may be the one to rise to the occasion and obtain the ultimate victory to Get Signed!
This trivia game is so unique because our open-ended battle questions allow each audience you play with to yield a completely different game experience! When the answers are based on your experience and personal musical interests, everyone can play to win! It allows you to play with people of various ages and backgrounds.
You’ve played fun music trivia games, but none quite like this! The trivia questions are not the only star of the show!
