Top 3!® -- The Game Where All Good Hints Come In 3’s! is the brainchild of entrepreneur and music industry professional Lyndsey McFail. Bringing together her passion for creativity and music, she created the game as a nod to her childhood.
Growing up, Lyndsey loved two things — board games and music! In her early teens, Lyndsey began DJ-ing with the moniker DJ Lovely, and embarked on a ten-year-long journey "Playing Music To Satisfy Everyone." She later set her DJ-ing gigs aside as she focused on her social media career, successfully maintaining and creating social activations for brands like The Maury Show, BET, Casa Dragones Tequila, and ESSENCE Magazine. During her most recent position at a music licensing company, Lyndsey created a viral video series and game with musical greats like Sting, T-Pain, Teyana Taylor, John Oates, Kacey Musgraves, Kirk Franklin, and others as contenders.
In 2020, the series was nominated for a Webby Award. While it didn't snag the award, being in the same category with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, Spotify, Goodby, Silverstein and Partners, and Tom Hanks/Twitter, Lyndsey realized she wanted to create another game to bring to the masses.
Combining her passion of music with her love of board games, Lyndsey researched the industry to find that the majority of music games on the market required you to know random music facts like, “Who won Best New Artist in 1987?" (Jody Watley, of course). Other games were conversation starters prompting you to recall a favorite music memory. While both are fun in their own right, Lyndsey set out to create a music card game with a competitive edge and only one prerequisite, players have to listen to music. It was then that Top 3!® Games was born.
Top 3!® Games is distributed by Festive BS, a black and woman-owned creative company dedicated to bringing ideas to life.
