We have selected the Top Quiz Based Board Games based on customer feedback to play at Christmas time, parties and birthdays in 2016. With everything from general knowledge to tv and movies you will find a quiz game that's perfect for your special occasion.
Humm Bug Board Game
This has to be the most laugh-inducing games we have ever played (though there's also a good chance of raising the temper for some players). Humm Bug is a 'guess which song' kind of game that requires one player to hum the tune of a song. And that, ladies and gentlemen is one of the most priceless things about this game. Regardless if you are playing with friends or relatives, the experience of listening to the other players trying their best to hum an unfamiliar song is bound to make you giddy (and sympathetically embarrassed). And of course, the reverse also applies when it is your turn to hum. With this game, it doesn't matter who wins, the experience of playing is already worth it.
Top Trivia Music Board Game
As far as trivia games go, this is pretty rudimentary: Cheatwell's Top Trivia Music is a huge pile of cards with trivia questions related to the field of music –and that's it. No board, no fancy tokens, no complex items needed for play. You can play this seated on a table or cramped in the back of a bus –it does not matter much. If you wanted something that was a little more than 20 questions about music, you might want to check other games instead. On the other hand, if you wanted to have a game that you can take with you anywhere, Top Trivia Music is packed in a very small container that is perfect for that.
Trivial Pursuit: Classic Rock Board Game
This one is for the hardcore rock fans. As for the term classic, well, let’s leave that be (it’s a very subjective label when it comes to rock, and one that is determined more by the age of the listener as opposed to how long the artist has truly been around). In any case, this is not your typical Trivial Pursuit game. Play-wise, it works just like every other TP title; you answer questions, you progress. The big change is that this is not something that average stock knowledge can handle. The questions are designed to be answered only by the most hardcore of band fans (not fans of the music genre). In way, this is a bit of a shame since the game alienates many of those expecting something a little easier to get into.
Trivial Pursuit Bite Size Music Board Game
Trivial Pursuit’s Bite Size sets are great if you want to bring around the game without needing to lug around aboard. The dice and board are scrapped altogether in favor of slices of wedges. Each time you answer a question right, you keep the wedge –first person to accumulate enough wedges wins the match. It is a pretty simple and straightforward adaptation of the game. As the music label on the title implies, this set is all geared towards music themed questions –though some of them are pretty obscure facts.
Spot The Intro 1980's Edition Board Game
Get ready to listen to some glam, rock anthems, power ballads and so many great songs from the 80’s –or at least, listen to the intro parts while your brain fills in the rest of the song. This 80’s centric version of Spot the Intro is bound to trigger a ton of amazing flashbacks for older players (kids will certainly not get what most of the songs are). Nostalgia has a bite however, some of the artists have either long since retired or have passed away and listening to the iconic intros will certainly bring out the feels.
Spot The Intro Board Game
What’s a music game without music? Instead of just guessing songs based on text clues, Spot the Intro provides players with DVD that contains a ton of video clips. These videos showcase different intros of many great songs and players must be able to identify the songs based on this. The game is not played exclusively with the videos –much of the action happens on the board where players must advance while answering trivia questions about different categories.
Abbey Road Studios Music Trivia Board Game
What’s so special about Abbey Road you may ask? Well, aside from the fact that there’s an iconic photo of the Beatles crossing it, Abbey Road is actually a major location for musicians. There are several music studios here and a lot of great artists have done recordings in this location. Anyway, the music trivia game is designed for music buffs who are really into the scene. The whole game is a board-rush where players advance by answering trivia questions and collecting items. The first person with a complete set of items (the create a fictional album) to reach the end goal wins the game.
Trivial Pursuit: Classic Rock Quick Play Board Game
Trivial Pursuit’s quick play sets are designed in such a way that you can quickly get started and then quickly clean up –perfect for being brought to events and gatherings. The whole Classic Rock genre is not really specific and the game covers a pretty wide range of artists across many years (some even as recent as Marilyn Manson). Some players have stated that the questions are too specific and hard to know (like a drummer’s favorite footy team), so do expect some questions to feel pointless and uninteresting. Still, if rock music is your kind of thing (as well as your other participants) then this should be worth a shot.
Ginger Fox Eyetoons Board Game
Eyetoons is an interesting game, to advance on the board, players have to perform a series of challenges. First players need to identify the song and the artist, then they need to hum the song. Doing so lets you advance in the game. Overall, this is the kind of game that should be very fun to play, though waiting for one’s turn can take a long time since the other players have to accomplish a lot of stuff.
