Give your memory the ultimate color challenge!

Some of us LOVE color. You know who you are... Your heart beats a little faster when you happen upon a Pantone swatch book. You seldom describe a color in one word - "red" - because "tomato red" and "brick red" live in two different zip codes of your color memory.

Palette is the perfect fast-paced game to help you find out if you're keen on green, have got a clue about blue, or can think pink! It isn't just pretty - it's a riot of fun!

Family and friends gather around with eyes and minds working together to match their perceptions with the color-reality!

Just three simple directions make Palette inviting, exciting, and revealing:

1. For just five short seconds you'll view a specific color (detecting a new wave frequency) - It's up to you to memorize that color quickly.

2. Match the shade you saw so briefly with the correct color swatch and you get to keep that color chip for your palette.

3. Once your palette is full of correctly matched color swatches - 6 color chips in all - You Win!

Don't be afraid to question your perception - You might be surprised by the different ways your mind and eyes interpret the colors.

Just the slightest difference in wavelength, and the perceived tint, hue, or shade can completely change. - It's a total challenge for your wavelength perception!

With lively interaction and brilliant visual learning entwined, Palette is an exciting game to test the way your eyes and mind work together.

It's solid proof that your color-perception makes your life amazingly unique!

Palette Game
  • Palette isn't just pretty - It's a fast-paced riot of fun!
  • A color game that uses your eyes and brain together
  • Test your eyes interpretations & brain analysis of wave frequencies
  • 4 High quality Artist Palettes for collecting color chips
  • 108 durable color chips

  • 1 Five-second sand timer
  • High quality black drawstring bag
  • Bonus Color Learning Guide -a broad spectrum of color facts & phenomenon!
  • Playful and fun for a wide variety of ages

    Here's something to consider - color is a product of our minds. In nature, color doesn't exist- just wavelengths of different sizes. It is our eyes and the way our eyes and brain work together that create colors. Whatever the range of wave frequency when light bounces off an object - our eye receptors pick it up and our brain deciphers. That is what determines what color it is we "see".

    NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 6 years of age.

    Identified Special Needs Challenges:
    Learning Disabilities, Speech & Language Delay
    "Palette is a challenging color-matching game which requires no reading to play or adding of scores. It is not at all babyish and is appropriate for all ages. It could be modified to be simpler by limiting the number of chips and color wheels used. No verbal interaction is required, but lots of chatter seemed to be generated as someone would recall an item they had that was that color or discussing favorite colors and different shades."

    Palette - fun game
    Posted 12/31/2012 by Sandy G.

    This is a fun game that challenges your memory in an area that's not often challenged. You'll be surprised at how hard it is to remember the exact color you just saw. It's great for kids and adults - it's one game where our daughter (age 5) is probably better than we are!

    Information about Palette
    Posted 12/23/2012 by Susan Steed

    The recipient of this game was my 6 year old granddaughter who had a paintbrush in her hand before she was a year old. Three generations of us played, including one person with a reading disability. It is terrific because no reading is required and it presents a level playing field for all ages and abilities. Also the physical aspects of the game--the paint chips, color wheels, and palettes worked beautifully. As soon as we had finished, the kids demanded another game and then dragged it to the breakfast table the next morning. Definitely a keeper.

    Beautiful. Requires a fair amount of adult participation (two kids 3 and 6 playing).
