This Christmas I was lucky enough to get a few things off of my 9 Things Every Art Teacher (to be) Holiday Gift Guide list. One of them was the Bob Ross Art of Chill Game. It is very easy to set up, but much more difficult than I thought it was going to be to play. I was hoping that I could utilize it in my elementary school placement in January, but my father and I had a very hard time figuring out how to play last night. It will definitely require some research and practice to get the game down to be able to teach it to a class, be it high schoolers or younger kids.
The game’s box comes with this awesome brush and paint key that can help throughout the game. To set up the game, it is fairly simple, pull out the easel and place the painting on it, shuffle the cards, and grab a palette and the game is ready to be played.
On the dice, there are 3 Bob Ross silhouettes that when rolled, a “Chill” card is flipped and the small figure on the easel moves over a space. Once the Bob figurine moves to the end he wins the game.
The game took a little over a half an hour to play with two players, and Bob won. We had to keep referencing the directions packet throughout the whole game, so I’m hoping that within the next few times I can really get the hang of it.
I’ll be on the hunt for some good game tutorials! If you have any suggestions please feel free to comment them below!
