Extremely good game, especially for an abstract. Forget about the theme of some sort of painting. It's a great game with hidden goals (I like games with secret agendas) and tactical maneuvering to accomplish those goals. Plays well with newbies, too. -- 10/29/2007 played with 2 players and worked well: 48 minutes and a score of 60-48 (5 goals met to 3 goals met). Seemed more cutthroat with 2.

Who cares where it came from or whether it's correct or not? Certainly not me

I've only played this with 2, and with incorrect rules to boot (was taught that if a piece was moved from adjacency to its own color, it had to end its slide next to its own color, also that goals could be applied to multiple groups, rather than each only counts once). However, the interplay between when to commit to goals, and how to manage one's chips? Simply brilliant. I think a great deal of the chaos issues that people have mentioned here could be lessened by choosing to commit to goals later rather than sooner. Of course that may introduce its own new chaotic element....

Original, engaging, skillfully-crafted game. Even the name is fiendishly clever. It's hard to get played, though, because it's weird, it's abstract, and there's no real narrative behind the game.

I played this in 1997 when I was getting into German games and loved it. This was my first play since then and it's clever, original and fun. To be honest, it's abtract, but the secret scoring and choices are very good. We made it fun by spouting artistic nonsense, but some players may find it too dry. If you are mad for theme, try before you buy. If you like quick, fun, clever games and can tolerate 1995 production, this is a must buy game.

Aside from Reservat, probably my favourite polyomino-based game.

What makes this one unique is that you can move pieces around.

This is a game I have wanted to play for quite a while. It is amazing in its fairly simple rules and complex interactions. If there are any knocks against it, it is quite thinky for casual/frequent play & at least with 4, the board changes enough between turns that there is downtime.

Excellent puzzle game with great opportunity for AP. The puzzle doesn't take much form during the first few plays, but once it does, it's easy to freeze up considering the possibilities. Trying to hit your goals and have your opponents assist you in doing so is great fun.

Looks dry and abstract, when in fact it's rather mean and chaotic -- in a very fun, good way. Potential for very high screwage here.

Personally, I find the plain graphic design to be exceedingly beautiful.
