This is a very very good reason not to write your own. debian-legal
always advises against doing so. How about using:
http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nd-nc/1.0/legalcode with 4. d.
added saying:

   You may not distribute, publicly display, publicly perform, or
   publicly digitally perform the Work except as part of the game.

and 1. g.:

   "The Game" means the game Frets on Fire or a derivative work of 
   Frets on Fire.

This would, of course, have to be renamed something else, but it is good
to make as small modifications as possible. It would also need t be run
past debian-legal and Teosto's legal team.
