Product Description

Like a Chameleon, a player may change his color many times during the game. However, players who change colors too often will not do well and may even earn minus points for doing so. This means that a player must wait for the proper time and place to make the change, but do it before his opponents do.

Great New Player Game
November 18, 2011

I love games, and have lots of friends who are willing to play games but the challenge is the environment. When my friends are all together we are drinking, talking loud and often in a bar. So I have needed to find some games that can be taught easy, remembered after a few beers, and doesn't require lots of discussion. This game has been incredible for that. And for me there is enough strategy that I feel like I am still really playing something. A really great game. I need to find more like it.

 
 
 
 
 
Packs a lot of meat for such a simple game
September 12, 2006

Coloretto packs a lot of meat for such a simple game. It's easy to learn, plays quick, yet leaves you wanting more. The elements of this game I enjoy the most is the "Press Your Luck" aspect found in choosing to draw more cards or just take what's there, and in guessing what your opponents will do. One thing I like about this and "Lost Cities" and "Ra" is the way you can "tempt" your opponent to take cards/tiles, hoping that they grab what's there rather than getting something better by holding out.

A lot of risk-taking and agonizing decision making. Basically you're trying to build up your own colors, but the colors you decide to build up are chosen by you, and can even be changed in the middle of a round. However, changing your mind too much will end up counting against you because every card taken that's not in your top 3 colors will give negative points.

The "rainbow" and "plus 2" cards add to the fun as well. It's always fun when you're the only one left that can draw cards and you draw a couple of those.

Definitely on my want list after having played it. I hope to get it soon.

 
 
 
 
 
Simple, Elegant, and fun
June 11, 2005
I have been looking at Coloretto for a couple of years, thinking it might make a good addition to my games shelf, but never quite sure. I recently picked up a copy from Funagain, and I am glad I did. This is a fun game for groups that really just want to get together and talk, without being boring. The rules had a rough ride in their translation from German to English, but once we started a round everything fell into place and made sense; like all games, reading the rules is the hardest part. The cards are beautifully illustrated, and I was pleased to see that they no longer simply have the generic backs that an earlier reviewer bemoaned. My Coloretto deck has a very nice monochrome pattern on the back with the word "Coloretto" on it. I played this game three or four times after opening it, and everyone one who played enjoyed it. So if you are looking for a simple, enexpensive, and extremely portable game that anyone can play, give Coloretto a try.
