|Rockband Manager | Published 15 December 2011|
If you want to rock, you need dedication, wits, and a few breaks. As the manager of a brand new garage band, you’ll need to plan everything if you want to rise from gigs at local coffee shops and high school dances to jam packed stadiums full of screaming groupies and fans. It’s a tough road, but rock stardom is worth the price.
Assemble an epic band, grind out some face-melting tracks, and become a rock legend. Fantasy Flight Games is excited to announce the upcoming release of Rockband Manager, a card game for three to six players. There is only one question: are you ready to rock?
Making the cut
In this entertaining and fast-paced game, each player starts with a limited amount of cash with which to assemble a band. Players take turns bidding on and adding musicians to a group. Once each player has created their band, it is time to move on to the Career phases of the game, where bands produce albums, perform gigs, and do anything to get the inside track to success.
The goal of the game is to be the band that collects the most decibels. During the Career phases, player gain decibels by claiming cards from a group of ten Career cards. If your vocalist has tons of Charisma, she can book a sweet show that instantly raises your decibels. The guitar player, the guy with loads of Talent, can start recording in the studio, and the opportunistic drummer? Send him out to sabotage all of your rivals. The path to stardom has many roads and there are many ways to gain decibels, so do everything you can to get to the top.
A rocking good time
Rockband Manager is perfect for gamers who crave a quick game that can easily be shared with friends and family. With only a few minutes of instruction, everyone will be rocking n’ rolling like die-hard fans. Moreover, the game features vibrant art and high quality components that add to the rich theme of the game.
We are thrilled to announce that Rockband Manager drops late first quarter. Check the Description page for more previews in the coming weeks.

@Brandon - exactly what I was wondering. Played Battle of the Bands a few times at GenCon last year and thought it was fantastic!
Will be keeping my eye on this one. As others have said - a nice break from the regular fare, and if it's relatively inexpensive and easy to play it may go on the wish list!
A nice change of pace from the "serious" sci fi and fantasy themes.
Also, any game under $20 deserves at least a look.
It's kind of amazing that most everything is going up in price, but FFG found ways to make Hey, That's My Fish! and Cold War cheaper.
We are Sex Bob-omb! One, two, three, four!
Wow, I never thought I would be interested in something like this, but this game sounds pretty rock'in, no double pun intended.
Anyone know how close this is to Battle of the Bands?
this is...actually pretty neat. I like the smaller games a lot
Rofl!! Yes! Just yes. :D
