Long Live Rock is Aleken Games’ exciting new “Speed game of Rock!” where players race against the clock to unscramble significant happenings on the timeline of Rock and Roll. The board game (MSRP $24.95), designed for 1 or more players, ages 14 and up, is readily available nationwide at retailers and online.
Ken Eichstaedt, president of Aleken Games, said, “Long Live Rock is a fast-paced game and a sure hit with game players and music fans everywhere. What makes this game so fun and interesting is that Long Live Rock! supplies the Who, What, Where, and When of Rock and Roll. It’s up to the players to ‘unscramble’ the sequence of events and organize them as they race against time.”
With every turn each player or team takes three Rock cards, each of which contains a famous “happening” in Rock and Roll. Then they have one minute to arrange the cards face-up in correct chronological order. When the cards are flipped over and if the events are in the correct date order, the player moves forward one space on the board. An extra bonus to move additional spaces for any player is available by correctly guessing the exact year that one of the events took place. The first player or team to cross the finish line wins.
Coined as the “un-trivia” game for Rock and Roll fans by co-creator Julie Eichstaedt, Aleken Games’ Long Live Rock! was designed to be played in about 30 minutes and is perfect for parties, get-togethers, coffee time, break time or anytime!
