I feel like this might be fun if I ever had any chance of winning...

BGN announced the latest game in what seems like a new trend in game mechanics - "paint-mixing" (Fresco by Queen Games being the first, of course).  Hmmmm.  Well, I suppose it's a bit more thematic than "deck-building" or "worker-placement".

Unlike Fresco which is a worker-placement game with an element of paint mixing, the main idea of Pastiche is to mix colours together to come up with secondary and tertiary colours and use these colours to paint works of art.

Ugh. The game actually sounds like it could be fun but if you're colour-blind like me, you realize the nightmare that THIS would cause.  I was once seen wearing pink pants to class and I was totally oblivious.  Turns out my favourite white pants had been washed with a red shirt.

I may just have to sit and watch others play this one....
