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
Having played this game with my family 2 times in a row last night, they all enjoyed it, and we didn't go through even 1/4 of the paint cards. I don't see how the replay value will be an issue. Goodness, I already can't even tell you the paintings I finished, so if I get the same one next time I play the game, it won't matter. If you have curious kids, who can sit still for an hour and can take time to think things through, this game would be a wonderful addition. Set up, clean up is easy. With 4 players, we had a game finished in 45 minutes.
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.Read more ›
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.
