When was the last time you gazed at the sky with a partner to spot shapes in the clouds? Or played “I Spy” with a child to test their keenness in close quarters? The days we’ve spent playing it safe at home have definitely made us more conscious of our surroundings. Imagine capturing the vibrance of everyday life in a tabletop game based on how we see the world!
Look no further than Hues and Cues, an inspiring new board game available now from The Op! Bring its fun and eye-catching box to the park or entice your friends over video chat to play by communicating and guessing colors using only one- and two-word clues. Besides earning points for your accuracy, find rewards in exploring the many ways colors leave an impression on us. From holidays or hobbies, to emotions and experiences, clues are based on perception… so references and examples are endless for color vision of any ability!
Open up the glossy, six-fold game board to share a grid of 480 prismatic hues. One active player chooses a color swatch from their card to describe to the others, who then mark their guesses on the board by setting their player pieces on the coordinates. Upon being given the second, two-word clue, guessers are able to refine their choice or hedge their bets by singling out a different shade altogether! (Does “cotton candy” lead you to think a lighter pink, or blue?)
Players are awarded for more points the closer they are to the target. Cue Givers can also earn points for the proximity of the guesses! With a game time of 30 minutes, players can take turns acting as the Cue Giver to allow everyone the opportunity to give cues and guess hues. Play as many rounds as needed for the group or designate a certain number of points for a winner!
Designed by Scott Brady, who used his knowledge of matching Pantones in the printing industry to create this game for his family, Hues and Cues is made for 3-10 players, ages 8 and up. Keep your imaginations sharp and loved ones entertained wherever you’re together by picking up Hues and Cues for $24.99 from your favorite local game store or shop here at TheOp.games!
