Who wants to play?
As an avid board gamer, I find that board games, like books, can often help us songwriters tap into inspiration. Song writing is a form of creative play in itself.....so why not throw a game in with it?
For this challenge that I am making up for you (and myself), I will assign you a board game that you will use as the skeleton for building up the lyrics for your song. For instance, if I gave you the game "Chutes and Ladders", you might use elements from the game board or its rules to write your song. You may talk about winning/losing, taking turns, rolling the die, climbing up, falling down.
For each person who takes on this challenge, I will assign you a board game and a description written by me/Board Game Geek. The song can be about anything, including the game, but its skeleton will be inspired by the game itself. Bonus points if you are able to find a copy of the game itself and play it!!! Quadruple bonus points if you actually play the game with another 50/90 participant! (For those of you in the Boston, MA area.....I own/have access to the board games I give as prompts and am totally up for teaching/playing the game with you.)
