Cryptozoic Entertainment will preview Pantone: The Game at GAMA Trade Show. This is an easy-to-learn, competitive, party game designed by Scott Rogers to be released later in 2018. Adam Sblendorio, Vice President of Creative at Cryptozoic:

"Pantone: The Game embodies the idea that a picture speaks a thousand words. By reducing characters to simple representations, the game captures the child-like feeling of wonder and accomplishment that comes from visual recognition, being able to identify someone or something with just a look. We feel that the game will appeal to a really wide audience." [source]

In Pantone: The Game the player who is currently the Artist chooses the character card and then designs a representation of that character using only color swatch cards. The other players then take turns guessing who it is. If nobody can guess the character then a hint is given at the start of the next round with the player and artist receiving less points based on the number of hints used. Both the artist and the winning guesser score points. The winner is the player with the most points after each player has taken a turn being the artist three times. The game features 132 character cards and supports 2-20 players, aged 8+. It plays in 15-30 mins.
