Rock Science is a board game for 2-6 players. The goal is to be the first to finish one lap around the board through the use of rock knowledge, clever betting and a bit of luck. Players answer questions about anecdotes, myths, rockers, albums, songs and Sex, Amps & Rock ‘n’ Roll. You can also be asked to hum the riffs of well-known rock songs.
All questions have three levels of difficulty: Poser, Fan and Scientist. Poser questions are easier so anyone can join the game! All players are always involved since they bet on each other’s rock knowledge. With intuitive rules and fast gameplay it’s quick (60 minutes) and easy to learn.
