There’s no question: the life of a paint-by-cube artist is hard. What little money you do earn is invested right back into paint and canvases. Without that paint and those canvases, you won’t be able to follow your dream of becoming a famous artist. Being a starving artist is a constant struggle.
Fairway 3 Games would like to announce their Kickstarter project, Starving Artists, an award-winning board game in which players are paint-by-cube artists trying to become famous before they run out of food. The game is a contest winner on The Game Crafter, and features some of the world’s most beautiful works of art.
Gameplay involves blind-drafting and resource-management, in which players complete masterpieces using transparent cubes while attempting to feed themselves and stay alive, and hopefully becoming famous artists.
The following is an excerpt from the Kickstarter gameplay summary:
Starving Artists is played over a series of turns. Each turn represents a new day. On each day, you must choose between: buying new canvases, painting the canvases you already own, or working in order to get more paint. If at the end of the day, you’ve completed a masterpiece, you can sell it to earn more paint and food. If you don’t spend your days efficiently, you won’t be able to feed yourself, and you’ll have to give up on your dreams.
The game is for 1-4 players ages 12 and up and requires approximately 20 minutes per player to play. For more information and to support this Kickstarter, visit the Kickstarter page here.
