Cryptozoic Announces Release of Pantone... The Game?

Cryptozoic Announces Release of Pantone The Game
I can hear all my graphic designer and artist friends across the planet collectively going whaaaaaaaaaaaaaa?? Surely, a game called Pantone is going to be wildly inventive. Cryptozoic does not disappoint.

Cryptozoic Entertainment, leading creator of board games, trading cards, and physical and digital collectibles, today announced the August 22 release of Pantone: The Game. In this easy-to-learn competitive party game, 2-20 players try to recognize characters from popular culture who are represented only by abstract arrangements of colors, inspired by Pantone, the world’s leading color expert.

“What makes Pantone: The Game so special is how intuitive it is,” commented Adam Sblendorio, Vice President of Creative at Cryptozoic. “There are so many creative paths to creating the characters in the game and none of them are wrong and all of them are fun! Through his design, Scott Rogers has designed a game that we think will appeal to people everywhere for years to come.”

In Pantone: 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 (in 15 different colors). 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.

"Working with Cryptozoic on Pantone: The Game has been a real pleasure,” said Scott Rogers, the game’s designer. “Ever since that first pitch meeting at Gen Con, it was clear that they ‘got it’ and they were the right publisher for the game. Pantone: The Game is such a colorful and easy-to-learn game that I hope that gamers around the world enjoy playing it with their friends and families. I'm looking forward to creating more Pantone games with Cryptozoic in the future!"

Pantone: The Game will be available at retailers nationwide August 22 for a suggested retail price of $30.
