This video describes Fresco Expansion 2 included in Fresco Big Box.

Fresco is one of those rare games that from the moment you sit down to play, you can truly get immersed in the theme and really feel the game come alive. There is a wonderful satisfaction of successfully managing your apprentices, acquiring your necessary resources, and then finally blending and applying paints to watch the beautiful Fresco come back to life in all its vibrant magnificence. This is an engaging game for families and gamers that has been recognized with over 15 major award nominations and wins worldwide, including a nomination for the Spiel de Jahres (German Board Game of the Year) and the winner of the Deutscher Spiel Preis. 

In Fresco, you take the role of a master painter. By order of the bishop, you have been commissioned to restore a large fresco painting on the cathedral's ceiling. But not surprisingly, you are not the only master commissioned for the project. 

You will need to carefully plan your workday: when to wake the apprentices, what stalls to visit, which paints to buy, which tiles to paint, and when it is appropriate to make a generous donation to the bishop. Buying materials costs money, so be prepared to take on additional projects to earn money to acquire the paints and materials necessary for completing your tasks; but your apprentices are not automatons, you need to keep them happy too. An evening at the theater can go a long way toward keeping your apprentices happy. By managing your decisions carefully and planning ahead, you can become one of the masters of the ages.The decisions you make in Fresco are all wonderfully woven into the theme of managing the challenging undertaking of restoring a Renaissance masterpiece!

                           EARLY BIRD   $60.00  350 Backers

                                             Standard $70.00

                             $90.00 Fresco Big Box + Via Appia

 

                  $110.00 Fresco Big Box + Alhambra Big Box  

                            $120.00   Fresco Big Box + Amerigo

If we successfully reach our funding goal of $10,000, all backers will receive an additional game board that has a beautiful new fresco image. This will be the only funding reward. The board will be packaged separately from the Big Box game and will be available for sale separately. Fresco has a larger number of beautiful pieces and expansions. As a result we have chosen to offer the game at the best price we can. We think you will agree that this is the best decision to ensure a successful kickstarter!

If you back the game here on Kickstarter, you'll get a copy of the game and the new board in advance of your region's release date!

*While every effort will be made to ship when promised, estimated delivery dates are estimates and are subject to change, unknown external factors may cause delays.

Risks and challenges

Fresco has been one of our most popular titles and we are very excited to give it the Big Box treatment.

Our toughest challenge with our previous projects has involved the coordination of production when a game is made with components from different manufacturers. This creates some logistics and shipping challenges that we want to improve upon. Going forward our plan is to minimize this situation so that we can better manage our production timeline and delivery.

From our previous projects what remains to be shipped is the new expansion characters for Dark, Darker, Darkest and that looks to be a March/April release.
