The DropMix Music Gaming system has left me with mixed feelings. I see a lot of potential for the game, but for my family the game just doesn’t seem to be a good fit.
From the moment that we tried to play the game, we ran into problems. I want to say that customer service was AMAZING and helped me resolve all my problems but the fact that we did struggle turned us off the game a little bit.
You need to download and install the DropMix app for either Android or Apple. I contacted customer service to see if they could help. They directed me to the American Apple store where the game was located, but since I am in Canada I was unable to download. The problem has since been resolved and I was able to easily download the app on both my iPad and Android devices.
The game comes with 60 cards that you can use to mix your own music. You can play in three different modes: Freestyle, Clash, and Party. Choose your favourite mode and start creating your own music!
The game is recommended for ages 16 up. I tend to agree. The gameplay is fast so you need to be able to identify your cards quickly. My children are much younger than the recommended age (6 and 8) and while they had fun playing it was a struggle to identify the cards correctly.
This game would be awesome at parties for anyone who likes to mix their own music. The combinations are endless and so are the laughs.
Unfortunately when we went to play the game it no longer worked. We were unable to turn the game on at all. We tried, resetting it and replacing the batteries. Again I contacted customer service who again, helped me quickly and were amazingly friendly. They are replacing my board free of charge.
So overall while we had problems with our game, I believe that it has great potential to be fun at parties. The board is attractive and designed to easily accommodate 4 players. You can purchase additional cards to suit your musical tastes.
While I had problems with my game and it ultimately stopped working. I am giving it three stars as the customer service was incredible and left me feeling like a valued customer and has worked very hard to resolve all my issues.
