Beat Street is a board game based on the break dancing craze during the late 1970s to the mid 1980's. As players land on squares, each one has a value and a specific dance move. The player hopes to get a result higher than that number, if not they can attempt to physically attempting that move to get "Beat Street Credits". There are territories on the board, should you advance into another dancer's territory and not beat a move you go to detention or to jail.
