The excellent music/board game hybrid DropMix is 50% off on Amazon
One of last year's best board games is cheaper than it's ever been.
After kickstarting the entire plastic instrument genre with Guitar Hero way back in 2005, developer Harmonix has struggled to recapture that same level of success with its follow-up titles like Fantasia: Music Evolved and a reboot of its original rhythm game Amplitude. Last year it came the closest it's ever been with the release of DropMix, a mash-up of a digital music creation suite with a physical board game.
Using the DropMix app on your phone, you can compete against or partner with friends to create your own music mixes by combining individual tracks from popular songs. Pair the main riff of a Disturbed song with the beat from one of Bruno Mars' tracks and cap it off with Ed Sheeran's vocals for a Frankenstein's monster of a mix that somehow still sounds surprisingly catchy thanks to Harmonix's rhythm matching tech.
If you can't already tell, we're big fans of DropMix here at Finder, and we had plenty of praise to heap its way when we reviewed it last year. That's why we're excited about today's Deal of the Day over at Amazon. Normally retailing for around $130 at the best of times, DropMix is down to just $63.58 for the next 24 hours.
Considering the steep cost of entry was one of the only bad things we had to say about the game in our review, this deal is a no-brainer. If you have any affinity for Harmonix or music games, or you just want to check out a board game unlike any other, you'll want to head over to Amazon quick smart.
