Summary: “Get through an unpredictable action-packed festival day while you try and catch all your favorite bands live. This game now includes 24 independent bands from across the globe that you can watch, via a QR-Code, at the end of every round. In a festival, one prefers to be with friends when watching bands live or having drinks at the beer stands. Hence, players get more chances to earn Fun Points when they meet friends or other rockers in the game. As you advance across the festival ground, one should take other player’s movements into account. The one who gained the most Fun Points on the Fun Barometer, at the end of the game, is the winner.”
