Product Description

A World of Beautiful Colors comes alive as players choose commission cards picturing 34 of the finest European art works of the past six centuries. Players score their commissions by mixing primary colors through clever tile placement and recreating the palette of colors used by the masters who created these works. Explore the paintings palettes and pasts of the artists in this unique and challenging game for the whole family. While placing hexagonal pieces to gain palette (color) cards players become familiar with the different color combinations that produce the many hues of an artists palette... all listed on the Player Reference Card. Players also learn to recognize many great artists and their works as they complete commissions.

The wonderful world of Art provides us so many creative and unique visions into the heart of the human experience that it is often bewildering to think that there is nothing new under the sun. Artists strive within their soul to outpour their thoughts, emotions, and conversations within the confines of their cranium walls onto various forms of medium for the world to enjoy. It is said that art is in the eye of the beholder. In the case of Pastiche, a game by Sean D. MacDonald, I have to say that art is in the hands of the holder.

I bought this game for my wife as a simple just-because gift. Hey, it gave me an excuse for adding a new game to our library while also providing my wife a smile. In this game players play as artists seeking to pay tribute to the great masters that came before by painting, through the clever placement of painting hex's to gain paint for their pallet, many of the world's great artists works.

My first impression of the box was simply outstanding. I hold a great deal of value on quality of construction and from the beginning to the end of this playing experience I was thrilled. We've got the international edition and if this is any indication of the quality produced by Gyphon Games in their other selections (yes indeed for The Road to Canterbury) the weight of the box and its contents does nothing less than pull you right into a world of superior quality like none I've ever seen.

The four wonderfully framed paintings proudly displayed on the face of the classic art-feeling box immediately draw you into the fiction of the game.

As a family that loves board games, we were very interested in this game because it is so different than other games. The two main phases of the game are placing your hex tile to determine which color paints you get and trading paints. My sons, ages 9 to 15, like it and ask to play it often. It was easy enough to explain the rules to a group of friends. It involves planning and exposes you to famous paintings, so I suppose the educational value is pretty good.
Yes, it costs more money than you'd spend at toy stores but these kinds of games (Settlers of Catan, Ticket to Ride, etc.) are higher quality and not gimmicky like so many kids' games.

The most recent game in the Gryphon Games Family Games series is Pastiche, which was released early in 2011. Designed by Sean D. MacDonald, it is a wonderfully themed and beautifully produced gateway style game for 2-4 players about mixing colours to re-create famous paintings. It's gorgeously produced with stunning components, and is an outstanding family game that has proven very accessible, by offering relatively straight forward game-play without sacrificing a high fun factor or meaningful decisions. The game has an intriguing mix of various mechanics, among them being: tile placement, set collection, trading, and hand management.

The basic concept is that players must place hex tiles which feature dabs of colours, and depending on how these hexes are placed adjacent to existing hexes, new colours will be created. Through careful hex placement and trading, players must try to acquire the colours needed to complete commissions for famous paintings. Each of these `commission cards' is a quality and thick tile featuring a well-known artistic work, beautifully reproduced. It looks fantastic, and the mechanics mesh quite well with the theme.

Pastiche is intended to be family friendly, and it has the right mix of ingredients to be a successful gateway game, and I can even see potential for it to get nominated for gaming industry awards. We've played it over a dozen times, and continue to be impressed, despite it not being a heavy game. Recommended! - EndersGame @ BGG

The idea seems like it will be a winner...learn how to mix secondary and tertiary colors and learn about history's masterpieces and their artists at the same time. The problem is, it's boring - especially to kids. The card trading mechanic is such that it doesn't encourage trading between players, and so the key element of player interactivity is lost. And, as much as misguided parents may think it's important for kids to know the difference between Monet and Manet, the kids just don't care. What some art industry 'experts' tell us are the classics are just boring...kids would prefer Pikachu.

Much-improved printing over the original which didn't include easels. The production on this game is unmatched. The box is probably the most sturdy one in my collection! Only loses a star because it's a bit on the easy side. But it's good for playing with people who aren't complete boardgame nerds such as myself.

This game is the most beautiful, most well made game I have owned. The box itself is an OCD person's dream. Every item has a slot and for someone like me, putting it away correctly is a must. Both the hex cards and commission cards are sturdy and surprisingly so. They could have been made out of playing card material and been just as pretty but these things are like real works of art themselves because they are nice and thick and sturdy with the commission cards depicted artwork in beautiful detail. These things will last. The palette board is gorgeous and makes play so much easier. My daughters do not like this game nearly as much as I do (but they still like it, and they must LOVE me for how often we get to play it) but when it is my turn to pick a game, this and scrabble are my top two choices. And low and behold, they always go for this one over that one.

The best part of this game is you can decide how long it will take to play. Depending on what point max you decide, that will determine how long the game goes. 70 point games will take forever. 35-40 is a safer bet for a nice but not too long play time.

In this household, we have about 40 board games. I will not even go near mentioning how many computer and video games we have, or how many different game systems (but seriously, all of them). We play games almost as a part of life. This is absolutely my favorite game to play. Not everyone's, but mine.
