Cup o’ Jo-hann

Love my new favorite cup! I’ll be Bach!

Excellent product and super speedy delivery.

I had a query about the product and postage and the staff at Lord of the Chords deal with my query in a fast, professional and friendly manner. Well done guys, another excellent product.

MUGnificat!

Ordered the Lord of the Chords: Bach for an Encore package and this was the first part to arrive.
Now...technically I ordered the package for my brother, who's a music student, but...I might just have to keep this mug for myself, haha.
(I mean...musical puns AND gently making fun of Starbucks...what is not to love?)
Customer service was top-notch also.
In short, get yourself one of these bad boys. Just the thing for when you need to WACHET AUF and smell the coffee (or other beverage of choice).

Hello Jonathan and team,

I wanted to thank you for creating this amazing Starbachs mug! It reached us just in time for St. Nikolaus Day (A pre-Christmas holiday we celebrate in Germany via the USA) This has officially become my son’s favorite mug. He is a BIG classical music aficionado. We can’t wait to finally be able to play Lord of the Chords!

Wishing you and your team a safe and beautiful holiday season.

Eager to try it

I've had the expansion for quite some time, but I haven't quite yet tried it out! It looks like a lot more fun to test my music theory that I've learned from college many years ago.

Wow!

An amazing game, had a lot of fun to play with my students!

Challenging, but in a good way.

I bought this for my daughter who is 8 but very advanced in school. It took some time to learn, but she loves it and I love how it is even expanding my musical theory knowledge. Not for you if you don’t want to be mentally challenged, but we LOVE it!

great concept

I'm glad that someone finally made a music-themed set-building game. My family is now learning music theory as easily as playing Gin Rummy. There are a few typos here and there, but that's common for a new game.

Bundles of pun!

Pun-tastic Game!

The game is really enjoyable both from a didactic and a gaming perspective. 100% advisable!

Fantastic Card Game, Fantastic Theory Tool

I'm not sure if I've ever enjoyed such a thrilling combination of edge-of-your-seat play fused with the knowledge that every victory is another flex of your musical muscles with friends and family. Even the most musically illiterate have been able to find a modicum of amusement from the games shared together. If only more people knew about this!

Fun for the whole family

My husband and I are musicians and we homeschool our 3 kids. This games is a great way to teach theory and have fun!! Also epic customer service when our order was delayed.

Musical migration

I ordered this game as a gift for a work mate. It arrived in good order and he is ecstatic!

it's a Tutti game!

Love it! the learning curve is a bit high because there is ALOT of info to absorb, but we started with the easiest form of the game. I got all our 4 teenagers/young adult children arguing the merits of their theory skills during the game! looking forward to having my studio students play this game alongside their theory lessons. Sincerely, Carol Man Lee, Temple City, CA

Lord of the Chords

Kids loved it! Great gift for college aged music students!

60% educational, 40% game = 100% fun

Took longer than normal to arrive, but their customer service was very prompt.

I'm not a fan of the puns (some of the cards feel like they were made pun first, rules second), but they don't detract from the game.

This is great for anyone already in music. If this was around when I was in band, it would've gone with me to every concert.

My Son Loves It

I got to be honest. I have no idea what this game is about. But my son who is pursuing his master's in music at Carnagie Mellon loves it. He and his girlfriend (also a musician)' have stayed up and played it half a dozen times in the few weeks since he received it for his birthday. Also I'd like to say the customer service is very responsive. There was a bit of a mix up at shipping and the support team promptly squared things away. If you or someone you know is a music fan I highly recommend.

Lord of the Chords: The Complete Edition

Came as advertised

I haven’t had a chance to play it yet, but all the pieces are of good quality and everything was there.

Fun and not just for musicians

Great game, fun to play and good for theory concepts (specifically for reinforcing chord structures and key signatures). While those with theory knowledge have a bit of an edge, even someone who hasn't done much theory can join in, as there is enough information to support that,. My brother never did much theory and he enjoyed playing with us. Highly recommend.

Thank you Min Chun! I guess it gets even more competitive with a little bit of sibling rivalry thrown in!

Unique Fun Game!

I got it as a late birthday gift and I absolutely love it! Can't wait for the quarantine to be over so we can all play together. Staff was also great, I guess the first time it was shipped, it got lost in the mail so they sent another one. So it took 2 months for it to arrive and I'm not disappointed. Worth the wait!

Thank you music lover! We ran into lots of shipping trouble with the USPS delays and we're trying our best to ship an extra copy to all the affected customers. Thank you for your patience and graciousness

Amazingly fun!

We have played this game a LOT in our family (1 piano teacher, 1 college music major, 1 beginning guitarist) and have had a blast. I love the strategy and the sneaky way you can absorb more music theory knowledge.

Thank you Melissa! Shhhh secretly educational

Creative and Fun Game for the Musician in Your LIfe

Got Lord of Chords game for our daughter who is a band director and it was a big hit! Its a visual feast with the beautiful graphics and well made game pieces, but the real beauty here is the creative way that music theory is woven into the game along with some terrific puns and very clever angles to the game. Takes some brain power to play, and those who know some music theory will likely enjoy it more than those who don't, but even non musicians will get the hang of it. Music geeks will be all over this game! Our daughter can't wait to play it with her music teacher colleagues. This one's all thumbs up!

Thank you Mary! ❤️ We're glad you appreciated the finer details of the game!

AWESOME

My entire family loved playing this game!!!!

Thank you Odori! Wait till you all try the expansion cards!

Game Arrived

My previous review stated that I had not yet received my game around 2 months after ordering it. Apparently COVID had a significant impact on shipping, but thankfully it DID arrive a couple days later. Fun game, great novelty box, happy with my purchase.
