    • Here is an example of a pictogram.
  • 7. TRIVIA
    • This category of the game includes trivia questions about different musicians in the industry.  These question may be about their personal lives, their careers, or their music.  They may focus on an entire band, or be about a single musician in the band. The level of difficulty will range from "extremely difficult" to "easy".
    • One of the categories of our game includes a CD.  This CD will have multiple songs on it and the player has to guess the name of the song and/or the artist who wrote the song.  If the the player lands on a spot on the board where they must use the CD, that spot will tell another player from a different team to draw a card and read it to them.  The card will have the CD and track number that is to be listened to and guessed on.  
  • 9. NAME THAT SONG  (continued)

  • 12. WRAPPING IT UP... WHY ROCK STAR? ROCK STAR is the result of a brainstorming session by a group of Los Angeles Valley College students during an exercise in virtual group communication.  The idea was to create a board game that would have mass appeal.   Well no surprise that music was chosen as the emphasis for this game.  One only has to look at the popularity of TV's "American Idol" to consider the far reaching commercial potential of this game from the music lovers of 1950's Rock n Roll King Elvis Presley to today's fans of Teen Princess Miley Cyrus.   This cleverly designed board game has the opportunity of being the next contender  to join the staples of home board game collections alongside Monopoly and Trivial Pursuit.   The hope is that families and friends alike will have a few laughs and enjoy their time together as they move around the board and compete for the most number of cd's to enter the Hall of Fame.   Buy and Enjoy Rock Star today!
