Playing the Game
1. Each player starts the game with $1,000.
2. Each player will begin in the space at the end of the record player arm. Each will roll the dice to see who goes first - largest number goes first.
3. Players will take turns in counter-clockwise fashion, and will move the number of spaces that appear on the dice; the person to their left will ask a question according to the category and genre (color) the player has landed on.
4. The board consists of three categories (albums): Name the Artist , Name the Song , and Finish the Lyrics , within them are 5 categories represented by color: Pop/Rock , Hip Hop/R&B , Jazz/Blues , Country/Folk , and Oldies .
6. Players will have the opportunity to earn money upon answering a question correctly. $20 for Name the Artist, $30 dollars for Name the Song, and $40 dollars for Finish the Lyrics.
7. If the player cannot guess the answer, they can choose to pay $10 each for up to 2 clues (on the other side of the card). There are no clues for the Finish the Lyrics category. If a player answers incorrectly, they win no money, and it is the next player's turn.
8. A player will complete a category once they have made one complete revolution of the album and answered the "bridge question" correctly. (The bridge question is the space on one album that connects with a space on another album.) A player must answer this question correctly before they can move forward to the next album.
9. A player may also land on a "Free Love" space which will allow them to choose the genre for the question they will be asked. A player may also land on an opportunity space which will cause them to gain or lose money, for example: "Perform at karaoke bar, win $100." or "Go to record store, spend $100."
