Jem Concert Clash concerns players taking the role of musicians who are trying to compete with rival bands and gain fame and musical fortune. Players travel along a track on a game board, trying to land on certain spaces to collect records; the first player to collect 12 wins the game. Along the way they take part in a Battle of the Bands and other music-related activities; the game even comes with a cassette of musical clips by the (fictional) Jem and the Holograms which instruct players to go to certain spaces on the board. Players otherwise make movements based upon the turn of a spinner or drawing a card.
Taken from the rulebook:
"Those nasty Misfits are challenging Jem and the Holograms to a Battle of the Bands. The Holograms are trying to collect all their records and bring them to the battle. But the Misfits are blocking them at every turn. The only way to outwit the Misfits is for the Holograms to split up and each try to get as many records as possible. Which hologram will make it to the battle of the Bands first with the records she needs to win?"
Jem and the Holograms was a Saturday morning TV series in the early 1980's, following the adventures of the eponymous all-girl rock band.
Note: Two other Jem games exist: Jem Rock n Romance Game and Jem Fashion Flash.
