About the game:

As a player, you are given an artistic challenge: recreate one of the sixteen images on the table as best you can with a seemingly random assortment of items: two shoelaces, six wooden blocks, four sticks and four stones, 2-5 symbols on cards, and colored cubes placed into a 3x3 grid to create a pixelated image. As the Board Game Oscars (aka Spiel des Jahres, German Game of the Year) jury notes though, "the assortment is anything but random. Instead, these items have been chosen cleverly.... The results are often astounding, so the guessing rounds often seem like a visit to an art gallery: featuring great ‘Aha’ moments and amusing attempts to justify your misunderstood creative genius. Super creativity with the simplest of tools." Multiple rounds encourage creativity, and both the play and theme make this a winning family game

Why we chose this game for Board's Edge Games:

  • Oscar winner - won the prestigious Spiel des Jahres in 2020
  • Family fun - great for family game night, striking the right balance between interesting for adults and not too challenging for kids
