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!!
