CANVAS (R2i Games, 1 to 5 players, ages 14 and up, 30 minutes; $45)
The World of Art has proven to be a fertile ground for the World of Games with many games focusing on art as their theme. We’ve dealt with art forgeries (Masterpiece from Parker Brothers from 1970), art auctions (Modern Art from game designer Reiner Knizia) and bought and manipulated the art market in many games (including last issue’s Art Decko). But, in this new design from Jeffrey Chin and Andrew Nerger, players will actually CREATE their own paintings in a way that captures the essence of what a painter does when he puts brush to Canvas.
