Are you the next Paco Picassimo? Find out in this crazy jigsaw drawing game for 3 to 6 players between 8 and 99 years old.
Panic in the small art gallery in Forgerville! A major exhibition is supposed to open tomorrow with previously unknown masterpieces of the famous modern artists Paco Picassimo, Wasidy Kalninsky, and Boy Lichtenberg. However overnight all the paintings disappeared! The most famous national and international art critics are already in town to have a close look at the many works of art that have never before been exhibited.
The museum employees – all of them ambitious amateur artists – quickly grab the panels with the picture titles and start drawing furiously. But they shouldn’t get too carried away because if the severe critics are going to stand in front of the pictures and be clueless as to what they are seeing, then the artworks and the artists are not going to receive any good reviews.
The player who wants to keep a step ahead in this game must not only be able to draw quickly and draw well but also be a real connoisseur when it comes to guessing. That’s the only way to become the next Paco Picassimo!
Tree or Marilyn? – Easy? Difficult? Professional artist? Picassimo has three different levels of difficulty:
Level 1: Simple terms that are relatively easy to draw and recognize. This category is also the most suitable for children.
Level 2: Challenging terms that are tricky to draw and to guess.
Level 3: Experience and trivia knowledge is required. This professional category includes famous personalities, film, TV characters, well known buildings, places, paintings, statues, book titles and more.
Picassimo includes 900 terms to be drawn and 3 levels of playing difficulty. Players simultaneously draw a secret term from their cards; they must use the whole drawing surface to complete their drawing. When only one person still drawing, a 3-2-1 countdown starts; when the countdown ends, they must stop drawing and put down their marker. The player who finished drawing first turns over a “transformation” card, which will show everyone how to re-arrange their drawing board tiles. Once boards have been re-arranged according to the card, in turn order players reveal their artwork to the other players. They are trying to guess the original word drawn before the artwork was re-arranged. If guessed correctly, artist and guesser will receive points. After all drawings have been revealed and guessed upon, a new round begins. After 7 rounds of play, the artist with the most points is the winner.
