I love music that goes along with what I'm playing.  I think I mentioned listening to old 60's - 80's country while playing Western Legends last week.

@Skurvy5 you'll appreciate that my first time going through the base campaign for IA we listened to the Star Wars Opening Song while I read the intro to the campaign.

I’m pretty sure that’s in the rulebook.

That is cool! Have you heard of Melodice?


I think the Spotify one would be nice because then you could actually lock your phone/device... but I also like the specific games you can look up in melodice.

I’ve not heard of melodice. Sounds interesting.

Dude it’s super cool. Essentially most games you can think of have a thematic YouTube playlist that people compile. It’s a great website, the only bummer however, is that since it’s YouTube you can’t lock your screen...

Ouch, that would stink. Especially when playing Gloomhaven because I have the Helper app open.

Yeah I can definitely see how that could be a problem 😂

@Sliddell11 @Skurvy5 The link to melodice is on a lot of the game pages by the way (you might not find it easily but it's in the same section that displays the game's official website)

That’s awesome I didn’t know that!

This is cool! I’ve been turning on some background music as I play Gloomhaven.

That's really cool! I don't generally play with music on (I like the natural ambiance), but I could see some of these being fun to play with!

You’re a Wingspan guy right? I’ve played that game with a nature/bird soundtrack on and it was AMAZING. I love music with games though, I like how it sets up the theme.

That actually sounds like a great idea for Wingspan! I’ll have to try it next time.

Cool, I think you’ll like it!

Brilliant. Saw it this morning and I'm excited to try it out when my wife and I play Marco Polo this weekend (one of the lists specifically referred to Marco Polo as an example so I'm sure it'll work well haha)

I could see that game having great music haha

Yeah! Would be interesting to hear what music the developers would put in with their games. Assuming that this was a thing developers did.

Yeah! It’s cool when kickstarters make their own soundtracks! #Escape: The Curse of the Temple is cool in terms of music because the music is actually a part of the game.

We own this one. The first time I tried it with my kids they were SO into the game it gave them nightmares. I think the music had a lot to do with it.

Haha I could definitely see that. It’s a fun game! Was definitely one of my “gateway” games.

Supporter10 months ago

It’s very fun and a little bit stressful!

Haha for sure. It’s also a horrible game to play with people who don’t pay attention... I learned my mistake...
