Star Wars and Saturday Night Fever, Titanic and The Graduate—a distinctive soundtrack can make a movie unforgettable. This game invites you to tell the story of your life through the soundtrack that backs it. Mixtape tasks players with finding the perfect tune to orchestrate past, present, and future memories—from their first kiss to the moment NASA asks them to pilot the maiden voyage to Mars. In each round, one player draws a scenario card from the deck and everyone else responds by streaming the song they feel best fits the action using their phone, tablet, or computer. Players then take a vote and a round winner is declared. Rather than knowledge or skill, the game plays on emotions, memories, and life experiences.
"The original inception came from growing up and sharing music discoveries with my family," recalls the game's designer, Joel Johnson. "Call it soundtrack syndrome or montage mania, this was just something we did to kill time. MIXTAPE provided the outlet for the 'best song to do blank to...' challenge we were constantly pitching to each other." Made in China.
