PAWTUCKET, R.I.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS), a global play and entertainment company, has opened pre-orders in the U.S. for the highly anticipated DROPMIX music-mixing game developed in collaboration with video game developer Harmonix Music Systems, Inc. DROPMIX uses cutting-edge technology to empower players to create unique mixes with their favorite hit songs by playing cards on a game board connected to a mobile app. Pre-orders for DROPMIX can be now be placed online at DropMix.com, with orders shipping September 24.
DROPMIX is a first-of-its-kind competitive gaming experience that blends physical and digital play to give players a fresh way to combine their favorite artist and songs and discover new ones. When a DROPMIX Card is placed on a Mix Slot, the electronic DROPMIX Board immediately starts playing the corresponding part of the song (bass, beat, loop or vocals) noted on the card. The board reads up to five DROPMIX Cards at time, using NFC chip-enabled cards, and the proprietary software in the app seamlessly combines the music within each card to create a unique mix.
“We are one step closer to fans being able to get their hands on the DROPMIX game and begin to create and discover their own mind-blowing music mixes with their friends,” said Samantha Lomow, senior vice president of Hasbro Brands. “Featuring some of the biggest hits from a variety of genres, the DROPMIX game offers a first-of-its kind music gaming experience that we can’t wait for fans to experience.”
DROPMIX features three gameplay modes, including the just announced Freestyle Mode, to offer players both competitive and solo play experiences:
Freestyle Mode: A solo play mode where players can build the ultimate mix picking any artists, genres or song parts. No rules – play any card in any slot! Players can save their mixes in the DROPMIX app and share them with friends at any time!
Party Mode: A team-based game where players race against the clock to achieve the highest score by matching requests made via the DROPMIX app. Every request answered rewards points based on how quickly players place their cards down. Answer all the requests accurately to unlock a bonus round and push your score even higher.
Clash Mode: A head-to-head competitive mode where players need to think strategically to dominate the mix. By carefully choosing and building decks, players can use different abilities to score points or block opponents as they race to be the first to reach 21 points.
DROPMIX cards feature some of the biggest hits in Pop, R&B, Dance, Indie, Country, Rock and Hip-Hop from around the world that players can combine in unexpected ways. Today, Hasbro is also unveiling fifteen new additional songs including:
BLINK-182 – “ALL THE SMALL THINGS”
BRUNO MARS – “24K MAGIC”
CARLY RAE JEPSEN – “CALL ME MAYBE”
DOLLY PARTON – “JOLENE”

Dropmix is rated for ages 16 an older and for one to four players. The game could be played by kids younger than 16 such as 14 or 15 as they will undoubtedly be familiar with the music, sometimes more than the parents. 🙂 You can also play with more than 4 people by making teams. The more the merrier in my books.
Included in the Dropmix box is the Dropmix board, 60 Dropmix cards, and instructions on how to play. The only thing required is 4 “AA” batteries and an electronic device of your choice to get the fun started.
You can expand your Dropmix by purchasing a Discover Pack or a Playlist Pack. We have a Series 2 Discover Pack that expands our Dropmix by adding another 30 cards to our gameplay.
Dropmix is a game like I have never seen before. It is leading the pack in combining music and essentially an electronic board game all in one. The game is great for parties and undoubtedly will be a hit this coming holiday season for Christmas parties and New Year parties. After all, what is a party without great music and a fun game to play?
I can see that Dropmix will be a hit among teenagers and adults alike. The gameplay will have you dancing, singing, laughing and having a great time. Best of all, there are the three ways to play the game; Party, Clash, Freestyle, so you can change it up to suit the crowd and the event.
