    Requires the base game to be played. 
    All components and sleeved cards from the Base Game and Expansion will be able to fit in the Piano Box.
    • Advanced Chords - Prepare to ask, "What chord is that?" with the Advanced Chords Pack's new game mechanic - Chord Extensions! Play crazy 9ths, 11ths, and 13ths to spice up your chords and gain buffs to forte-fy your reign as the Lord of the Chords!

    • Conductors - The pack introduces a new card type - Styles! In the same way a conductor influences the way every musician in the orchestra plays music (at least they hope so), Style cards influence the way every player plays the game! But unlike conductors, Style cards will never get angry when you're out of tune!
