LONDON, 13 December 2011 – Following on from the successful launch of The Abbey Road Music Trivia game in Tesco stores nationwide, we are still waiting for the first golden ticket to be claimed. 5 golden ticket are available. The golden ticket will give 5 lucky winners the chance to tour the world famous Abbey Road studios, home to some of the greatest recording artists of all time. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to tread in the footsteps of your idols.
Imagination Games MD David Snow states “The Abbey Road Music Trivia Game has sold well to date, we love the product and feedback from consumers has been really positive. We know the game would be a great game for the family this Christmas. The added bonus is that 5 lucky consumers will get a fantastic opportunity to visit a truly magical place; we just can’t wait to meet the first winners”
The game is available in over 500 Tesco stores and via Tesco Direct.com in the run up to Christmas and certainly meets the criteria for a fun Christmas board game the whole family can enjoy ( and has already been sampled by some legends of rock ) !
The game is a mix of music trivia, missing song lyrics and guessing the song or artist. The board features wonderful photographs from the famous studios, with special limited edition graphics and game pieces. Players start the game on the iconic Abbey Road Studios zebra crossing, taking it in turns to roll the die and enter the studios. Upon entering the studios players make their way through the iconic Studios One, Two and Three and chillout rooms, answering questions and collecting pieces of an 80th anniversary album token as they go. The winner is the first person to complete their album and make it back to the zebra crossing.
The launch of the game includes extra special golden tickets hidden in five packs which will enable five lucky winners the opportunity for a once-in-a-lifetime guided visit through Abbey Road Studios. The Studios, which are not normally open to the public, have been the site of some of the most famous recordings in history including seminal works from artists including The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Kate Bush, Radiohead and Oasis, as well as scores to movies such as the Star Wars, Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter series’.
