At the end of our class, I will always get my students to play this game, they’ve been enjoying it for 6 months now!
I'm already scheming to get together and play this with a bunch of my teacher friends!
I love the box! Show me the box!
It’s a really well thought through game, good gameplay, beautifully presented with a lot of humour too. Too good to feel like it's “educational” (but it is)!
The box was beautifully, gloriously empty. As ordered. And vacuum sealed. An unexpected surprise. As was the repeat email to write a review ;)
I’m an adult music learner and have been trying to learn music theory for some time. This definitely makes that study a lot more fun.
Hi, do you have a video to show how to play the game? Thanks
Loved the Kickstarter so much that I bought LOTC for my friends! Pun-i-licious entertainment for music lovers. Well played, game creators, well played.
Playing a game means to want some fun! What if you can also learn from the game?! It would be a value-added thing. One of the advantages of this game is the design of creating music chords which allows players to understand and remember how to build a proper chord. Build three chords and you will be the lord of the chords! It is not only a board game for fun but a board game serving educational purpose :) I believe music lovers would connect with it and music teachers would love to use it to teach their students chords! Thanks~
I certainly love to geek out in musical theory and the gameplay in Lord of the Chords definitely favours opportunity to do this in advanced ways. But people can play the game in both simple and advanced forms, so it is versatile and great all round with a lot of fun... And puns!
Sideways liked music, but was weak on theory. Having so much fun with this. My wife is too, and the theory world is all new to her. Thanks!
Played this game with our High School band director, he loved it
The whole family is playing this addictive game. only one of us knows anything about music theory but we are learning quickly because we all want to be Lord of the Chords! So many puns and cheesy graphics, it's hilarious.
Lord of the Chords: The Complete Edition
Loved this extension pack! Makes the game even better!
I played it by myself since Corona for 10 times! I love it! I just can't wait to try it with my students!
Every kid playing an instrument will have fun with this game. Thank you for creating Lord of Chords!
Arrived, thank you. Everything fits!
I am enjoying this game a lot. Learning the fundamentals of theory in my music theory class has given me knowledge and understanding of the game's content. I am hoping to share it with my theory class during the fall semester.
I have to say, my expectations were pretty high, as I was pretty anxious to play this game since I backed the Kickstarter campaign over a year ago. My order had some shipping problems and I thought my package was lost, the guys of Lord of the Chords were extremely helpful and graciously sent me another copy. A couple of days later I found out that apparently my orginal package spent about 2 months in Chile, just chilling... Anyways shortly after receiving my copy, my country basically went under lock down because of the coronavirus and I had to cancel my plans to test the game with friends :( I don't think I ever waited so long to play a game. After days of nagging I convinced my mom to try the game with me and she loved it!! My mom doesn't speak English, so she was reluctant to play and her music theory knowledge was a bit rusty but that didn't stop her from winning! My music theory knowledge is pretty basic (I hated theory when I was younger) but I loved being able to exercise that knowledge and learning a bit more! Honestly it's a fantastic game and the language and theory knowledge are no barriers, anyone can have a great time!!
Fun game -- I've enjoyed playing it with musicians and non-musicians alike. Brimming with delightful puns. Options for more advanced play and simple play are a nice addition, as well. Highly recommend!
It is playable by people who don't know music theory, with a bit of orientation and use of the charts. You do want to keep it simple, but it's fun. First time, we played at a party, and the winner was a guy with zero expertise. (I also have almost zero.)
I have it and it's REALLY fun! 😃 It's a hilarious and clever game! Only for those who understand theory 😛
I have used components to teach my 7 and 5 year old some theory. The 7 year old is a new violin student. He might not get all the puns, but he laughs anyway. My 5 year old likes to line notes up. We have a notebook with blank staves, so we will write out her little songs. My husband and I have both had some theory and lessons. Though both of those go back 20 years. It is fun remembering. Fun to play. It was a great kickstarter campaign.
Lord of the Chords: The Complete Edition
A lot of thought has gone into this. It is so fun! I play it at the music school I work at with other fellow teachers!
Exactly as expected
It was a present for my son who is studied musician for sacred music. We had a lot of fun with it. Since he was always super in music- H
harmony and music -theory, e.g. we all did not beat him. But he likes your humour and we all laughed a lot. I guess he will play Lord of the Chords with his friends. Thank you for your ingenious game. Harmonious greatings, Waltraud,
Haven’t played it yet but it was delivered in 6 days! Their customer service was super speedy and I can’t wait to start the game
My game arrived as scheduled, but the box was then unceremoniously buried under a pile of other cards and papers courtesy of my 10 year old. I emailed the creator who seemed to have a better grasp on the situation within my house than I even I did. Everything looks great and I can't wait to play. I love both music and puns so this game is definitely right up my alley. Couldn't be happier with the product and the whole process. So glad I found this one!
The puns alone are almost worth the purchase. This novel approach to music education is composing a whole new movement. It stanzas on its own two feet. This is an Ode to Joy of music theory. It is like the triads took over suzuki.
More seriously. This is best way to make music theory interesting and, dare I say it, fun. Of note, they are quick to respond to questions. There are a few supplemental cards that look like misprints. If you check the FAQ, it explains that certain countries that have alternative notation. I didn't RTFM but they kindly answered me anyway.
I give the Lord of Chords 5 Jimi's (E #9). A must for anyone that wants to progress past twinkle, twinkle or chopsticks.
This game is fun and quick to learn. Music lovers and students will especially love it. There are many puns in the card names, some obvious and some more thoughtful, which adds another great dementition. Production values are excellent. Highly recommend it!
I had some issues with delivery going to my neighbour and getting returned to sender, but they dealt with it quickly and sent me another one. I'm extremely happy about the game!
Really neat game, you get a piano case for carrying cards and stuff. Learn music theory the fun way, what chords are, length of notes, rhythms and stuff!
Even though I have no musical talent or understanding, this was quick to learn and fun to play. I feel like Mozart already!
Just played a short round, but it was a challenging strategy game! Good for everyone, even if you don’t know music theory.
This game is fantastic. You need to bring all of your strategy to the table. Love it!
We had the pleasure of playing this game with the game designer. He was an incredibly patient teacher and the game is really a lot of fun. There is a lot of potential to change the game play as you gain more experience. Definitely looking to purchase this as it's great for experienced musicians as well as someone that knows nothing at all about music and wants to learn
