You are master painters of the Renaissance!
...or you would be, if you had the pigments needed to paint your masterpieces!
Pigment is a fast, fun, minimalist worker placement game for 2-3 players where you take on the roles of rival Renaissance painters. Each painter must send their two Apprentices to gather pigments from the ever-evolving Bazaar to paint their masterpieces. However, the path between the many stalls is narrow, so only one Apprentice may visit each pair of stalls in a round, and must choose which stall effect to utilize once placed. As well, each painting completed will offer a unique Premier Piece bonus effect when on top of your gallery, allowing for even more strategic choices and ways to benefit players. Race to fill your gallery with 5 paintings first to win!
"This game is f***ing baller.

Copper Frog Games debuted Pigment at PAX East 2017 with 50 hand-assembled copies. We have only one remaining from that original batch after that weekend. Sign up for our newsletter below to be alerted to a giveaway for this copy in the future, as well as further development updates for the game!
- Elegant Theme:
Pigment's simple worker-placement mechanics and painterly theme are very approachable and quick to learn.
- Dynamic Choices:
Each Bazaar Card has two stalls to visit, but you can only choose one per Apprentice each round... and each stall won't be around for long!
- Beautiful Art:
Featuring Bazaar Card art by the talented Emily Hancock, and paintings from real masters of the Renaissance from Raphael to Da Vinci, Titian to Vermeer, a game of Pigment played in public is sure to draw a crowd.
- Pocket-Sized Worker Placement Fun:
Pigment's inexpensive cost, small size, and short play time make it an ideal "gateway game" for not-yet-gamers who love art.
Copper Frog Games is currently exploring several publication options for Pigment. Stay tuned for more information soon! Can't wait to pick up a copy? Be the first to get updates on design, production, and distribution when you join our newsletter!
