Fresco - you and your fellows, the country's most renowned fresco painters, have been hired to make the magnificent paint on the cathedral's ceiling shine again.

The Bishop awaits high-ranking visitors. The country's most renowed fresco painters are hired to make the magnificent cathedral's ceiling painting shine like new.

A busy workday needs careful planning: paints for the work in the cathedral must be bought, the fresco must be restored and new paints for the next day must be blended. When income is insufficient to your needs, you'll have to complete additional client orders in the studio. Of course, this may spoil the mood of your apprentices making it?hard to get much work out of them. They're also not morning people and tend to get grumpy if you make them get up too early.

Will you be the most skillful planner and gain the most victory points to prove yourself the?most successful fresco painter of them all?

Fresco is an atmospheric family game for 2 to 4 players ages 10 and up.

The included 3 expansion modules may be combined with the basic game as you wish. They will increase the challenge and playing time bit by bit providing a new experience for even hardcore gamers.

1st module: The Portraits?- Painting portraits of interesting celebrities in addition to restoring the fresco will earn you special privileges! Adds about 10 minutes to playtime.

2nd module: The Bishop's Requests - Meeting the bishop's special orders and foregoing part of your income will earn you a steady supply of precious paints! Adds?about 10 minutes to playtime.

3rd module: Special Blend Colors- The fresco becomes even more colorful. New paint pieces add even more color blends. Skilful use of these blends earn you lots of extra victory points! Adds about 15 minutes to playtime.
