MARSHALL Amps Unleash Ultimate Rocking Board Game!
Last weekend, Heavy Music royalty from bands like IRON MAIDEN, SLIPKNOT, WHITESNAKE, CHICKENFOOT, THE CULT, BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, DEEP PURPLE, JUDAS PRIEST, SLAYER and BLACK SABBATH took part in Marshall's 50th-anniversary event at Wembley Arena in London, England. The luminaries celebrated the life and work of revolutionary amp pioneer Jim Marshall with an unparalleled display of Rock virtuosity. Videos and more HERE!
In commemoration of this special moment in Marshall's history, Rock Science — the Rock game of the century — will release a limited edition of their wildly popular board game commemorating the 50th anniversary of Marshall Amplification.
"For a guitar aficionado this is a dream come true. 50 years of rock guitar history in one game," says Rock Science creative director Jorge Bravo.
Containing 1,600 trivia questions celebrating five centuries of loud Rock N' Roll and the iconic artists who play it, the Rock Science Marshall Game is a unique collaborative effort.
Rock Science is a board game for 2-6 players. The goal is to be the first to finish one lap around the board through the use of Rock knowledge, clever betting and a bit of luck. Players answer questions about anecdotes, myths, rockers, albums, songs and sex, amps and Rock N' Roll. You can also be asked to hum the riffs of well-known Rock songs.
- All questions have three levels of difficulty: Poser, Fan and Scientist. Poser questions are easier so anyone can join the game!
- All players are always involved since they bet on each other's Rock knowledge.
- With intuitive rules and fast gameplay it's quick (60 minutes) and easy to learn
