Players 2 - 4

Fresco is a worker placement game with a unique beginning. Players are artisans managing their 5 workers. The first step in each round is to plan the start of the work day. Is it better to rise early and use the opportunity to buy paints at the market? But then you have to be prepared for your workers mood to darken. Or would you rather sleep longer and progress quickly because you're in a good industrious mood? Make workers too unhappy and lose a worker; make them happy and you can gain a worker. With your paints proceed to the cathedral and restore a section or sections of the fresco as you have the appropriate paints for. And don't forget to boost your income by painting portraits in the studio or to obtain special paint colors in the paint mixing operation. You should also plan for a theater visit one evening - as you have to keep your workers in a good mood after all! If you're clever in planning you can become the most successful fresco painter and gain the most points.
