5 of 5 A work of art in every respect June 1, 2012
Reviewer: EndersGame from BGG  
Pastiche is a wonderfully themed gateway style game for 2-4 players about mixing colours to re-create famous paintings. It's gorgeously produced with stunning components, and is an outstanding and accessible family game.  The straight forward game-play doesn't sacrifice a high fun factor or meaningful decisions, and features an intriguing mix of mechanics, including tile placement, set collection, trading, and hand management.

The basic concept is to place hex tiles featuring dabs of colours, to mix and create new colours. Through careful hex placement and trading, try to acquire the colours needed to complete commissions for famous paintings. Each of these `commission cards' is a quality and thick tile featuring a well-known artistic work, beautifully reproduced. It looks fantastic, and the mechanics mesh well with the theme.

Pastiche has just the right mix of ingredients to be a successful family friendly game, and deservedly won the Mensa Select award in 2011.
