After playing board games for so long, you tend to find the same style of game reskinned into a new reimagined adventure. Whether it be in woodland, next time rehashed into sci-fi. I love to find really unique board games alike anything I have ever played before.

Canvas is a game that boasts individuality and ties in the artistic ways of the player. Now Canvas by Road to Infamy is back up on Kickstarter with a reprint of its stunning game along with an expansion entitled Reflections.

Canvas // Road to Infamy

In Canvas, players will take the role of painters in an art competition. By collecting lots of different cards and layering the transparent bits of artwork together, each different player will have designed a unique and individual piece of art. Cards contain small icons used to help score and ultimately find the best in the show.

If players want to be sneaky and not give away how many points their creation has equated to, they can hide their icons by laying the transparent card in a particular way, creating a puzzle aspect to the game. Once the players have created three different masterpieces, the game is over.

Canvas' expansion, Reflections adds double-sided mirrored transparent cards to the game, allowing the artists to create more unique paintings.

What I find incredibly amazing is that whilst Canvas is up on Kickstarter, Road to Infamy have invited the community on Board Game Geek to get their chance to submit some artwork for potential card illustrations for the expansion. The previous Kickstarter enabled three lucky artists to have their artwork portrayed within the game, however, this time ten lucky community members will get a chance.

The reprint and expansion on Kickstarter is almost at 1000% funded, with still 19 days to go and with all stretch goals being unlocked on the first day of the campaign! Including new artwork, sleeves for the card's protection and screen-printed wooden tokens.

Every so often I will find a board game that combines two of my favourite hobbies. This time, painting and board games! I am looking forward to what kinds of fusion combination games I will find in the future.

What is your favourite unique style board game?
