Numero Group release board game with 2LP set of 1970s underground rock comp

Not satisfied with card sets, t-shirts and box sets, Numero Group's latest release comes as a special edition with board game. Cities Of Darkscorch is a companion to the label's Warfaring Strangers: Darkscorch Canticles, a compilation of American underground occult obsessed teenage rock and metal groups from the 1970s. The basis for the game is artist Robert Soden's maps and schemes for the Dungeons & Dragons based land of Eldara. Roleplay as one of 16 battling groups and collect city banners from "pits of hard rock competition" for the ultimate prize: a record contract.
