A Golden Tocket to tour Abbey Road could be inside

Five Golden Tickets inserted into Imagination Game’s Abbey Road Music Trivia game have yet to be claimed following on from the successful launch in Tesco stores nationwide.

The golden ticket will give five lucky winners the chance to tour the world famous Abbey Road studios, home to some of the greatest recording artists of all time. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for fans tread in the footsteps of their idols.

The Studios, which are not normally open to the public, have been the site of some of the most famous recordings in history including seminal works from artists including The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Kate Bush, Radiohead and Oasis, as well as scores to movies such as the Star Wars, Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter series’.

Imagination Games MD David Snow told Toy World: “The Abbey Road Music Trivia Game has sold well to date, we love the product and feedback from consumers has been really positive. We know the game would be a great game for the family this Christmas. The added bonus is that five lucky consumers will get a fantastic opportunity to visit a truly magical place: we just can’t wait to meet the first winners.”

The game was made exclusive to Tesco initially and is available in over 500 Tesco stores and via Tesco Direct.com in the run up to Christmas. The game is a mix of music trivia, missing song lyrics and guessing the song or artist.  The board features photographs from the famous studios, with special limited edition graphics and game pieces.

Players start the game on the iconic Abbey Road Studios zebra crossing, taking it in turns to roll the die and enter the studios. Upon entering the studios players make their way through the iconic Studios One, Two and Three and chill-out rooms, answering questions and collecting pieces of an 80th anniversary album token as they go. The winner is the first person to complete their album and make it back to the zebra crossing.

The Studios, which are not normally open to the public, have been the site of some of the most famous recordings in history including seminal works from artists including The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Kate Bush, Radiohead and Oasis, as well as scores to movies such as the Star Wars, Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter series’.
