Once in a while, a game comes along that I’m personally like “holy crap, that’s brilliant, it’s fun, it’s cute, I want a million and three of them in my store.” A few years ago, that was Mystic Vale, a deckbuilding game about druids crafting spells via transparent cards. This year, it’s Canvas. A light little game of surprising depth on replay where you compete to have the best in-show-painting. You can check out more about this game from the publisher:
- Full rulebook (BTW – it’s a 7.9 on BGG right now)
- Try it on Tabletop Simulator
- See the basics of play animations below
- Preorder it from JustGames!
This game is super duper cool, it’s available for you to preorder from Just Games right now! You will also get the Premium Wooden Tokens from the original Kickstarter included FOR FREE if you preorder the gave from us. There is no extra charge, no shipping, just regular ol’ MSRP for the base game and we’ll give you the $15 premium expansion – I’m that excited about this game.
