OVERVIEW OF NAME THAT ARTIST
Name That Artist is the perfect game for those that are musically inclined and quick thinking! Players must listen to a song, and while listening, they must attempt to name the artist before any of the other players get the chance. Players may call out the artist at the very beginning of the song or three minutes in. Time is of the essence here! The more you get right, the higher the chance of winning the game!
To setup the game, simply review the rules with the players. The game is then ready to begin.
To play the game, players can either listen to the radio or have a passenger who is not participating play songs from their phone. The phone adds more accuracy when checking players’ answers. At any point when the song is playing, players may call out the name of the artist.
When a player guesses correctly, the person with the phone will stop the song. The player that guessed correctly earns one point. The person with the phone will then begin a new song immediately after assigning the points. Gameplay continues in this manner until the road trip ends or until a certain number of points!
END OF GAME
The game comes to an end when a player earns a certain number of points, or the road trip ends. The player with the most points, wins the game.
