As my teenage son is a musician, I thought I might try looking for some musical/band themed games, and found there wasn't any listings.

So, here are my findings, mostly found via the 'Music' category of BGG. And, with a focus on ROCK! Needless to say, I was surprised by the amount actually out there. Currently, we have 50 games listed. But, surprisingly only the Top 14 have a Ranking! So, if you're a Game Designer or Publisher, here is an area that is in need of some quality games to choose from. whistle

Note: I have excluded Music Trivia, Teaching, and to some degree Party Games from this listing.

Listing is Sorted by BGG Rank.

Let me know if you have any suggestions. I plan on posting further comments and opinions once I have played a game.
