Your parties will never be the same.
At E3 I was able to try an amazing new game called DropMix, developed by Hasbro and Harmonix. It’s a game where you can mix and make music by placing cards onto a magical game board each card has a different function and point value. the color of the card corresponds to a different part of the song, like a guitar or vocals or just the beat. match that color on the board and it will play whichever piece of the song. You can literally mix any genre of song together and it will seamlessly mix it together. My mouth was on the ground the entire time, it was that awesome. Here’s a detailed explanation of it by Hasbro:
“To play DROPMIX, users need the DROPMIX Music Gaming System which includes an electronic DROPMIX Board, 60 DROPMIX Cards, and the DROPMIX app, which will be free to download on the App Store for iPhone and iPad and on Google Play for Android devices. When a DROPMIX card is placed on a Mix Slot, the electronic DROPMIX Board immediately starts playing the corresponding part of the song (bass, beat, loop or vocals) noted on the card. The board reads up to five DROPMIX Cards at time and the groundbreaking software in the app seamlessly combines the music within each card to create a unique mix.
The DROPMIX Music Gaming System will be available at major retailers and online in September 2017 for the suggested retail price of $99.99. In addition to the 60 DROPMIX Cards in the Music Gaming System, Hasbro will release Playlist Packs with 16 themed DROPMIX Cards for the suggested retail price of $14.99 and Discover Packs with five DROPMIX Cards from different genres for the suggested retail price of $4.99. The additional cards will be released on an ongoing basis throughout 2017 and will allow players to collect and curate their own custom decks to create new and unexpected soundtracks each
time they play.”
I’d have to say this was one of the most impressive things i’ve seen at E3 and i’ll be one of the firsts to buy one of these!
