Supergroup game on Ebay
Supergroup Supergroup was a game released by Itemation Inc. in 1973.

Designed by 'music industry insiders' (according to the ad copy), the game put 2 to 6 players in the role of rock musicians trying to become successful. Through dice rolls and the use of cards, players accumulate bandmates, play gigs, acquire agents, sign contracts, and release records, all with the ultimate goal of obtaining a coveted Gold Record.

Ingenious in design, this instructive game (whether it was really designed with the help of industry insiders or not) may not have gained the proper distribution, or else it was too complicated for most kids, but either way many people have never heard of it (outside of game collectors), and it is somewhat difficult to find in decent condition today.
