I like to play games with appropriate theme music in the background. We started checking out records (dating myself) from the library and playing them while we played whatever it was we were playing. Mostly RPGs, Hitchcock's "Psycho" was a hit with Call of Cthulhu and "Superman" was popular with Champions. My buddy had a songs of the Luftwaffe LP and I had bagpipes for Axis and Allies or Risk (pre-GMT games we used to play).

Now there's Pandora and ITunes Radio etc...can you advise stations for:

-Wargames?

-Fantasy Games?

-Science Fiction games?

-and especially Horror games!

In our group, it's the job of the player to the right of the current player to sing or make appropriate noises/sound effects.

I like Tabletopaudio.com. You can make a pretty cool soundtrack by the type of music you want (fantasy, horror, scifi, etc.).

It's free and quick to set up to get some good ambience going. I have a playlist going right now for a game of Eldritch Horror!

Hans Zimmer soundtracks are great also.

2nd John Williams radio.

Also, Richard Wagner radio. Especially for epic or wargaming. When Flight of the Valkyries comes on during Fire in the Lake... Smells like victory.

We don't usually have theme music on....

We either play with no music or hubby chooses the background music which is normally something like Supperclub unless the rest of us veto and put some other regular music on
