Ever wondered what it'd be like
to start a band with your friends?

"Pushing the envelope of game design"
Australian Tabletop Gaming Network

"One of the best gateway negotiation games I've played."
Dicey Exploits

"Really cool, really innovative!"
Undead Viking

"My 9 year old loves it, my dad loves it, my brother loves it, everyone that's played it has really enjoyed this game."
The Kwarenteen

"Easy to learn, easy to play, easy to enjoy."
TheGamingReview

"Right on pitch!"
Cardboard Stacker

Band Manager
The Boardgame

a lively, ruthless negotiation game that uses
band merchandise as the board and pieces

Starting with nothing but pure passion   put together an act 🎺🎸🎷 and go on tour 🚌  to win career opportunities ✈️  and fans 🙌 🙌 🙌  However - tours are risky 😱  Make things easier by banding together with others 💪  but then you must split the spoils 💰 so band members must earn their place or be left out 😰

Acts start out pretty niche 🎪  poorly promoted with obscure genres & unusual instruments (bagpipe salsa? 📯💃). As the game progresses ⏩  gain success by selling out 💸  to more mainstream music 🎧 and learning how to do effective marketing 📢  As your career takes off 🚀 the others are just holding you back 😜  time to start that solo career! 😎

• Three to five players
• 30 - 60 minutes
• Quick to learn
• Suitable for families
• Complex enough for gamers

What's in the box?

  • 190 cards with over 100 original illustrations
  • Five pin badges as player pieces
  • The game board is a t-shirt 👕

Why a t-shirt?

  • T-shirts are the most iconic of all band merchandise
  • It makes the cards easier to pick up from the table
  • More resistant to spills than cardboard would be
  • "Any kind of novelty drives up dopamine in the brain, and dopamine is associated with romantic love"
    - Dr Helen Fisher Read, Biological Anthropologist
  • You can wear it if you really want to, but it only comes in large - the board won't fit on smaller sized ones 😅
  • You can't play the game while wearing it. Just trust us on this.
