I wrote a review of Fresco a while back that was mostly negative. It was based on 5 or so plays of the game. I decided to dust off the game and give it another whirl or two. My opinion in the review was unfairly negative. We had a great time playing this game and look forward to another play of it. The collection of cubes to turn in for the restoration of the cathedral ceiling reminds me quite a bit of Caylus, but lighter of course. I still would rather play something else with only two players since I do not care for the dummy player that much. But with 3 or 4, Fresco is a darn good game. High marks, also, for the theme coming through so well.

We've tried it out a couple of times and it didn't click with us. I was thinking of it the other day though, and decided we should try it again. Maybe we'll have the same change of heart you did!

Either of you played it with the 3 included expansions? Too lazy to look up the review.

I agree, play with all 3 mini expansions otherwise the game is way to light/boring. But with them its quite decent

I think my problem with Fresco is that it is simply a good game. There is nothing that makes it stand out. I have quite a small collection and it still struggles to get played. Also, I am pessimistic about its longevity as well as it seems to be continuing its slide down the rankings. My wife likes it though so I think I'll try to get a play or two in over the holidays to see if my opinion changes.

Definitely, and playing with the Stained Glass Windows from Glaziers expansion lifts it to an even higher level IMO.
