Lyric is like a Trivial Pursuit game for music lovers. Its a fast-paced quiz that challenges players to remember the 'lyrics to their life'. The questions call for diverse skills - not just quick-fire recall of the lines of favourite songs, but also performance of songs and description of song titles in charades or doodles.
Do you think you are a music trivia champion, or that you know more about lyrics than all your friends? Well here's a fun way to find out. The Lyric board game will have you searching for those lyrics that are there in the back of your mind. You've heard them... you know them... but can you recall them?
What are guilty and have no rhythm in the chorus of George Michael's Careless Whisper?
In a song by Take That, which seven words follow: Whatever I said, whatever I did, I didn't mean it... ?
Sing any lyric containing the word "Really" from different songs equal to the number just rolled on the black dice

Can be adapted to fit all ages and tastes in music.
The question categories include opportunities to mime or draw clues for your team mates which is guaranteed to liven up the proceedings! Some questions must be answered, or tasks completed, against the clock (timer provided).
The game is simple to set up - no batteries or cables required - open the box and you are more or less ready to go. The rules of play and scoring seem a little complicated when first read but it's fine once you start to play.
Super fun for family gatherings, ice-breaker for parties etc.
Give it a go!
I think it's really hard to find decent music board games now days, but this is one i would reccommend avoiding i'm afraid.
This game requires you to recall song lyrics based on questions on cards provided. Using two special dice to progress around the board you land on coloured music notes corresponding to a question type and in order to advance you must answer the question correctly. If you fail to answer correctly, you are sent backwards. On reaching the central "golden note", you stop moving around the board, and must successfully answer a challenging 'gold' question to win the game.
Adults and older children. Shower-singers. People who "can't sing, won't sing" but are good listeners! You definitely have to know a good amount of songs and be able to recall lyrics quickly.... if you doubt your skills and are not willing to use the game to practice (i.e. you're a bad loser!) then this game will not be for you. Just because you can hold a tune or play an instrument, doesn't mean you know lyrics! It was much harder than I expected with a vast range of songs from old and new bands and singers. However, if you are happy to be challenged, or have a fair amount of lyrical knowledge you will love this game!
Alternative playing Style
We play this game without the board; it just complicates it. We made our own 8 sided 'die' with the 8 different colours of the notes on the cards (the 8 different question types)and just use the dice provided to determine how many points we gain or lose. We decide on a score and the first person to that score wins. This way, you are more likely to get the more interesting questions than you are when you play the way it was intended! We use the provided timer for some questions but set our own timers on our phones for 2, 3, 4 minutes depending on the question as we find the recommended times provided are a little harsh!
The doodle and charade questions are the easiest by far and do not require much knowledge of music. They do not work as well if there are only 2 or 3 people, but for groups these end up being the silliest and most fun question types. Then there are some which require your knowledge of a particular song (e.g. sing ten words from this Queen song...") or ask you lyrical/musical trivia questions. The most fun but most challenging questions require you to sing a section from X number of songs which contain the word "hill" or "love" for example. The hardest card is the gold note card which gives 6 words; for each word you must sing a short section of a song which contains the given word. The game recommends a time of 45 seconds for ALL the words on the card, but we tend to give 30 seconds per word. You do not have to sing in this game - you can just speak the lyrics - but we often award an extra point if someone, lost in the moment, starts tunefully belting out their answer!
It doesn't take too long to get through the provided cards, even though it seems like a large amount is provided. Hopefully, 'expansion packs' will be sold in the future.
You can easily play this game with just the cards (see Alternative Playing Style) above and a few extra bits and pieces. So if you see a 'used' or board-less version being sold it is worth considering.
It can be a very long game when playing with the board if players find it tricky.
Mainly, it is the on-the-spot pressure which makes the questions challenging - so don't judge the game by the few questions given as examples!
If you get the chance I encourage you to 'try before you buy'. It is not for everyone, and you may not know whether or not you like it until you try playing it. However I personally find it the perfect balance of challenge and fun with a sprinkle of silliness.
