The Art Of Noises

The Art Of Noises is a game of abstract musical performance for 3-5 people. Players take the role of avant garde performers, attempting to communicate various nouns, verbs and adjectives using a variety of toy instruments.

Each player takes it in turn to select a card and perform the word on it. The other players guess which word is being performed. At the end of the game, the person with the most points wins, and is declared the most avant garde.


  1. You will need 5 split pins and 13 sheet of thin cardboard, assuming you make no mistakes or misprints. You will also need an assortment of toy instruments.
  2. Print each layer of cardsheet.svg on a seperate sheet of card, and cut out carefully.
  3. Print out 5 copies of the score dial, and attach front to back using a split pin.
  4. Refer to for how to play. The open document version is for easy printing.

All cards were made using Inkscape Extensions for Board Games. You can create your own cards by editing cardsheet.csv and installing these tools. Hat tip to lifelike for this!
