Thank you to My Fake Band for sponsoring the website and newsletter this week. My Fake Band are a new party card game that recently launched a Kickstarter to make a game all about creating fake band names, weird lead singles, specifically for “music lovers and shit talkers.” Does that sound like you? Check it out on Kickstarter.
What do bands like Butthole Surfers, Hoobastank, Limp Bizkit, Barenaked Ladies, and Hootie & The Blowfish have in common? Well you guessed it, impeccable taste in band names. MYFAKEBAND is a music inspired card game that captures the absurdity surrounding band names and song titles. Poised to plug the gap in game cabinets across the world, MYFAKEBAND combines easy gameplay with the natural comedy that accompanies some band names & song titles. The official Kickstarter campaign is now live giving backers an opportunity to own a copy of MYFAKEBAND before it’s public release date.
The music scene has forever been a lawless wasteland of endless bands who rise and fall much like the tide. In this vast world there are a few things that all bands have in common, such as the process of choosing band names and song titles. You may ask yourself, how do they do it? Why did they choose that ridiculous name? What does it all mean? MYFAKEBAND takes the guesswork out of the equation with 150 fake band cards and 150 genre cards. During gameplay, you and your crew will produce endless hit song titles based on over 20,000 fake band and genre combinations drawn from the deck.
Created by Never Played Out LLC, MYFAKEBAND aims to capture the imagination of the music scene through their Kickstarter campaign by offering many unique and fun “Street Team Quests.” With quests ranging from tweeting @NPOgames your own fake band names to filming Dragonforce’s Through The Fire and Flames being sung karaoke style, there is a quest for everybody. Completing one or more quests gives you the ability to play a direct role in unlocking stretch goal features for MYFAKEBAND.
