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.
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.
An amazing game, had a lot of fun to play with my students!
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!
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!
The game is really enjoyable both from a didactic and a gaming perspective. 100% advisable!
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!
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.
I ordered this game as a gift for a work mate. It arrived in good order and he is ecstatic!
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
Kids loved it! Great gift for college aged music students!
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.
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
I haven’t had a chance to play it yet, but all the pieces are of good quality and everything was there.
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.
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!
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.
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!
My entire family loved playing this game!!!!
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.
I am so happy to edit this review! The game finally arrived after COVID-related shipping issues. I bought it as a gift for my musician/music theory professor partner. He is already figuring out ways to use it in his classes.
The puns built into the game, including the rule book, are hysterical!
The quality of the game pieces, cards, case, and packaging are top notch.
This game has everything! Fun, excitement, music theory! Just a Fun-nomenal experience all around.
Also a big thank you to Jun and the wonder customer support! They really went above and beyond. Any amazing game and an amazing company.
I have played this game countless times over the past weeks and it never ceases to be interesting, fun, exciting, and educational. There are no other games like it or even close. By far it has been amazing to play and teach to others.
