Today, the owners of MooreGames, Family Toy Company, released HeadRush: Hip-Hop Edition, the first board game in hip hop culture similar to Guess Who. While trapped in their home due to the pandemic in 2020, Antwon, his wife Kimberly, and their daughter Ariyanna devised a board game that Hip-Hop fans will enjoy.
HeadRush: Hip-Hop Edition will be available in a variety of editions spanning several industries and musical genres, but the game capitalizes on everyone staying at home after the pandemic by providing families with something fun to do together. MooreGames is giving Hip-Hop fans a new way to enjoy the culture that took the world by storm, starting with a Hip-Hop board game.
"I believe we follow the culture and my wife and I saw an interview on Breakfast Club with the creator of the game, Rhymantics. During the pandemic me and my family were just in the house. We kept playing board games and I started thinking about how we could incorporate the culture into our own game and how it could be cool to engage Hip-Hop fans” Antwon said of the inspiration to start HeadRush: Hip-Hop Edition. “I kept watching that Breakfast Club episode over and over; it really lit a spark!"
MooreGames intends to release three more HEADRUSH titles, but this HeadRush: Hip-Hop Edition will be followed by an influencer game and subsequent games that are currently in development. According to the Moores, there are currently seven games in development that will be released in the coming years.
"How we structured HeadRush, it's basically a Who Am I? type game, we merged the old school and new school rappers, trying to include different era's of Hip-Hop. When playing the game you can ask questions like, Do they have dreads? Are they conscious a rapper? Are they a trap rapper? Are they independent?” Antwon stated. "We basically started with like 100-150 cards going from old school all the way to new school, some popular and some obscure artists, so we may have some newer artists that are not as popular or older artists that are really popular."
