Too many similar shades
Posted 7/27/2011 by Adriana
Rating: 3

I love the idea behind this product, but the actual playing turned out to be very complicated. There are a LOT of colors to choose from, and many shades are extremely similar to each other. So much so that even with the selected color tile next to the color wheels it's sometimes hard to tell which one is the correct match. The solution we found to this problem was to play with half the wheels/color tiles. This turned the game from frustrating to actually enjoyable. In all fairness, printing consistent colors is something extremely hard to do, specially in the blue/purple range, and that is why Pantone color fans are so expensive. This game does a fair job of it.
Think of it this way - a 48 box of crayons is much more fun than just 8 crayons. We think Palette is so fun and vibrant because it's not easy! We've been known to turn up the lights during game play to see subtle color differentiations clearly. The suggestion of playing with half the color wheels is also a good one if Palette is too paint-staking. And, the more people you play with- the easier it is to identify those who really get hue.
