Might be a silly question, but, I've never seen card packs in the store for this.

 

If I were to buy the "Complete Series 1/2" packs, that includes all of those other playlist packs?

So, for example, I would not have the buy the"Dropmix Playlist Pack Rock (Ouroboros)" if I got the series packs?

 

I figure that's the case, but wanted to hear from someone who knows before I start buyinse series packs.

The Playlist packs are separate from the Series 1/2 Discover packs.  So, if you wanted everything, you'd have to buy all of the Playlist packs and all of the Discover packs.

The cards in the Discover series packs are separate from the cards in the Playlist packs.  In other words, there are no shared cards among any of the various packs, although there are sometimes repeated songs but with different pieces of that song located in different packs (i.e the guitar part in a Discover pack, the vocals in a Playlist pack, the drums in a different Discover pack, etc.).

I'm about to try and price match at Target
Edit: They won't price match. Not in their Target App


You just have to find the right people to do it. Some are sticklers with the app on their handheld, especially in electronics. I was able to get one for my household and one for the in laws at 2 separate stores by taking them up to Customer Service about 10 minutes after store opening with no problem.

Or set a price alert on camelcamelcamel.com. If something is OOS and becomes available under the price threshold you specify, it'll send an alert.

My nephew and I played this quite a bit this weekend.  Really enjoyed it.

I already want more cards though!

The small amount of vocal cards with the starter deck is brutal.  Unless you like hearing "call me maybe" over and over.

 

EDIT:  Just a little ProTip, these cards still function while in clear Ultra Pro card sleeves

I was thinking of putting mine in the Ultra Pro sleeves, but also wondered if they would work in the top loaders. I will try when I get home.

They would probably work in top loaders, but there's a lot of shuffling involved, so I wouldn't really recommend using those.

Toploaders didn’t work for me after 4-5 cards stacked. Ultra Pro penny sleeves worked perfectly.

Thanks.  I snagged the last Series 3, and grabbed Series 4 while I was at it.  (Not that I needed to spend money...)

Bummed I saw this late and ordered 3 and 4 from Hasbro directly. Cost me $10 more total.

I have pumped a decent chunk of change in to this after getting the $30 board and I'm concerned with this statement on the Hasbro site: "App available through December 31, 2019." What happens after that? If you still have the app on a device will it still function or will it be dead in the water?

Harmonix says this:

 

"12/31/19 is just the minimum for app support, but is not necessarily a maximum. We have no plans to make the app unavailable at this time. If you have any questions regarding DropMix, always feel free to reach out to Hasbro consumer care."
