As you nostalgically tune into the hottest radio stations, carefully unwrap a new blank cassette tape and position your fingers on the play/record buttons, eagerly waiting for that perfect song to air. As it plays, you press down and reflect on how it makes you feel, capturing that emotion onto the paper insert with the hope of sharing your heartfelt sentiments with your love. With each song, the tape fills up side A, is gently ejected, and the journey continues on side B. Once the tape is filled with carefully chosen hits, you slide it back into the case, surrounded by the paper insert adorned with your notes. It’s time to present your heartfelt creation, the Mix Tape, to your crush. Remember, in the end, it’s all about the victory. The player strategically recording a mix tape by earning the most victory points emerges as the ultimate winner.

Mix Tape is a card game in which players draw cards from three decks (Listen action), place a song onto their tableau (Record action), or activate each song’s power (Play action). Each song has a base value, a tempo bonus (which depends on the next song recorded), and correlates to one of the mixer levels on the mixer board. When a player has recorded 10 songs (five on side A and five on side B), victory points are totaled. A player earns victory points from the matches between the player’s crush card and recorded songs, any notes jotted down, and the levels on their mixing board. The player with the most victory points wins.

Mix Tape is the first game in the Talon Strikes Quick Strike Series! Check out what is in store next.
