New Scoring Cards for puzzling new challenges and added replayability.
Buying the third (and last) in this series was an easy choice and I was very happy to find it on my doorstep this year. As with the other two, I backed this on Kickstarter and got the deluxe version each time (meant a few extra cards and wooden components). The new cards came with two new features, a paintbrush which copies the colour next to it (the colours blend slightly, so it is easy to tell which one it copies) and a holographic star which can be any shape you want it to be (but plan carefully as it counts as that shape for every scoring card). There is also a new ribbon to earn, by getting to place your card in one of the new frames (which like the game boxes, can be hung on the wall if you want to).
The edition I really liked was the ability cards, each one was a famous artist and either give you a one time ability or full game ability - we all agreed immediately, that this should be a random draw as there were two or three that would be VERY advantageous. The big plus to these, is that half were male and half female. More goal cards and more painting cards really expands that game, the box you place on the board can fit about 70 cards in it (and the rules don't think you would get through all of them, even with 5 people playing) and since there are so many goal cards now, you won't be able to get bored of playing the same goals over and over.
We really enjoyed this expansion, our only gripe is that it doesn't all fit into one box so you have to take all three down each time you want to play it. Still, it is such a minor gripe in the grand scheme of the game.
