Earn "chill points" by painting landscape features like Happy Little Trees and Almighty Mountains using colors and brushes from your hand of cards. Keep your eye on what other players are doing and be strategic about the sequence in which you complete the features. If another player beats you to the brush, you may want to wash your palette and shift your painting plan. All the while, Bob sets the painting pace as he advances across the easel, offering sage encouragement and bonus opportunities for even more chill.
This game is a cruel joke on Bob Ross, hero of calm and happy. The ridiculous rules take 20 minutes to read. It's not even fun once you start playing. The box is cool, but there is nothing chill about this game inside. I want to punch this game.
It was complicated to learn at first, but the website on the back of the box that leads to a video about how to play was REALLY helpful! Overall a simple game about collecting correct paints and supplies to copy Bob's beautiful paintings. One game takes about 15-20 minutes with two players, so the overall game length is very manageable. I also love all the quotes that are on the "Chill" cards!
We bought this game for my wife's mother. Originally, I thought the game was weird - but she loves Bob Ross, so alas, here we are. We ended up playing it with her, and it was actually super fun. And honestly, I had no idea who Bob Ross was at first.
This is a good game that plays similar to Ticket to Ride. The changes to the game play make me like it more than Ticket to Ride. Playing with four makes it more competitive as Bob has more opportunities to move. Games are quick but there's not much strategy.
