Fresco (Fresko)   (View Game)
   Quixotequest

The award-winning Fresco is not as thematically "fun" a Worker Placement game as Stone Age, but it is a little more competitive as you have to plan ahead more than you do in Stone Age. If you like this type of game I recommend getting it after Stone Age, though it's nice that it's still fairly fast (60-70 min) in comparison to the more heavy worker placement game Agricola, which you'd only want to break out with seasoned gamers in the mood for a more brain-burning game. The competing fresco-painting theme won't work for everyone, but for those it does it's a beautiful game with a worker placement and turn order competition mechanism. The custom artist meeples round out the presentation nicely. I'd recommend the game using the Portraits and Bishop's Request expansions (included) as a function of the base game. They are easy to incorporate, hardly add much length to the game, but make the competition for turn order much much better -- and the game on the whole more interesting and/or more thematic. Add the New Paints expansion (included) when you're playing with players for familiar with Fresco.

   Rob - Mt Albert - Auckland NZ
This has to be the best family game since Zooloretto, maybe even since Settlers. Simple to learn and play with a basic educational element in the colour building ... and then its scalable with built in expansions to add depth.
