Save 40% on the excellent music-based board game DropMix at Amazon
The boisterously fun board game from the makers of Guitar Hero and Rock Band is now cheaper than ever.
It can be hard to get the family into video games at Christmas time. Teaching grandpa how to wrestle with an Xbox controller and explaining to your aunt that you can both look and move at the same time rarely ends well, so it's better to play it safe and stick with the tried and true medium of board games for staving off boredom at your holiday get-togethers.
That doesn't mean you have to sacrifice everything that video games do so well, though. Harmonix, the studio behind Guitar Hero, Rock Band and the entire plastic instrument craze, has set its sights on the physical toy market with DropMix, a blend of board game, app and music-creation tool that we had an absolute blast with when we reviewed it. In fact, the only real complaint we had was how pricey the package was.
However, thanks to Amazon you can render that complaint null and void by picking up DropMix for a sweet 40% off right now. Normally retailing for around $180 here in Australia, the Amazon deal brings it down to just $78.28, a price well worth paying for a unique music game that everyone can join in on this Christmas. It might not turn you into a drumming god like Rock Band, but it's sure to make your holiday parties a whole lot livelier.
