Big Band is a Vinyl stand-alone game that continues to build on the base game of Vinyl and introduces the Window Display, Leader Board, and a new way to form collections based on the instruments in a collection.

Big Band offers a strategic twist in the historical context of 78s and 33s competing for formats in the record store. Players are challenged to focus on collecting albums from two genres: swing and Jazz. The game’s unique dynamics, such as the varying acquisition speeds and the strategic choice between 78s and 33s, are designed to keep players engaged and challenged.

The rules for collecting albums are stripped down to match the genres. However, players must visit the front counter to earn collection rewards. To turn in a collection, the player must represent each of the four instruments in one genre. The player will earn what type of collection reward depending on how many matches there are in the attributes. Play continues until all the albums have been placed in the store. In the end, the player with the most points is the winner.
