Board Game Geek

BGG is the go-to platform for every content related to board games. The most impressive feature is a catalog that gathers the whole history of the medium (128 000+ games). Titles interesting from our perspective are gathered in Music category (which includes also merely music-themed games) and under Singing mechanic (where singing is sometimes a very small part of the whole game).

One of the many features of BGG are lists and here you may find music-related ones from wiki editor, including:

Having a musically rich experiences to buy in a box is rather not popular. More often the game relates to music just with a setting, by employing tests of musical trivia knowledge, or by providing a theoretical education (in the school curriculum). Here are a few more notable titles from the Board Game Geek database.
