There’s a lot of thought here from designer Scott James. Here’s a game with a simple concept, simple execution, but with a lot of subtle layers that only come from someone sitting there and playtesting a game again and again and again. Swatch isn’t a game where four players will sit round the same table rushing to finish with a lack of interaction that you see in so many other similar games.  – We’re Not Wizards (Link)

I really enjoy it when a game has a clear objective. With the scheme cards, there’s always something you’re aiming for. Some schemes allow for a bit more flexibility than others though. In some cases, once you pick up your first swatch you’re locked in, whereas with others you can be flexible right up until you pick your third and final swatch. Trying to pick up on someone else’s scheme might offer an opportunity to hate draft, but we’ve not found that much player interaction comes into play. More often than not, the best card in the line-up is quite clear, and it will be chosen by the person who has first pick. – The Game Shelf (Link)

If you’re into games like Splendor, Century: Spice Roads and abstract games similar to those, this is a game for you. This isn’t a particualr heavy game. Lovely filler-game

I like the theme. I really enjoyed how they to mix this style of play where you mix different colors. To have a game that allows you to mix colors like this is kinda cute.

Swatch really encourages formulating a rough strategy and wants you to plan ahead. Its randomness is completely overshadowed by the playerinteraction.
