Cryptozoic Will Preview PantoneTM: The Game at GAMA Trade Show
Upcoming Party Game in which Players Identify Characters Based on Abstract Arrangements of Colors to Be Demoed at Cryptozoic’s Booth #325
Lake Forest, CA – March 12, 2018 – Cryptozoic Entertainment, leading creator of board games, trading cards, and collectibles, today announced that it will preview PantoneTM: The Game at the GAMA Trade Show, March 12-16 at the Peppermill Resort in Reno, Nevada. In this easy-to-learn competitive party game, 2-20 players try to recognize characters from pop culture who are represented only by abstract arrangements of colors, inspired by Pantone™, the world’s leading color expert. Designed by Scott Rogers (Rayguns and Rocketships, the God of War video game series), the game will be released later in 2018 after being demoed at Cryptozoic’s Booth #325.
Art Not Final
“PantoneTM: The Game embodies the idea that a picture speaks a thousand words,” said Adam Sblendorio, Vice President of Creative at Cryptozoic. “By reducing characters to simple representations, the game captures the child-like feeling of wonder and accomplishment that comes from visual recognition, being able to identify someone or something with just a look. We feel that the game will appeal to a really wide audience.”
In PantoneTM: The Game, the player who is currently the Artist chooses a Character Card and then designs a representation of that Character using only color Swatch Cards. The other players subsequently take turns trying to guess who it is. If no one can guess the Character during a round, a Hint is given at the start of the next round, with each Hint reducing the number of points awarded to both the Artist and the player who correctly identifies the Character. The winner is the player who has the most points after each player acts as the Artist three times.
PantoneTM: The Game can be played at Cryptozoic’s booth at the GAMA Trade Show, with the second-half 2018 release date to be announced soon.
