|So many colors! Quite a fair bit of fun :)|
So Jon and I have never played Fresco before. I have heard of it but somehow a copy never crossed my path that I could play it. Dion decided to correct that and brought out the game for us to play.
Thinking when you want to wake up will decide what paints you can buy. Wake up too late and you may lose out on the colors that you wanted. Then fulfilling a part of the fresco you want to manipulate the bishop to score extra points and if you are scoring more than once you want to position the bishop to maximize your scoring. Mixing paints is rather standard so nothing new there. Since we played with 1 expansion, thinking of which portraits to get is also quite fun.
In my game I screwed up the last part because the worker placement board is flipped so you can mix 1 time before you fulfill the fresco which means I could have scored more and not come in last. Still I had fun and I would certainly like to try it with all the expansions and the new add on as well. It maybe light for some but I think if you play with the expansions it will add quite a lot of depth. Recommended!
