Colorama is a children's game for 1-6 players, Ages 3 - 8.
This game is a child's introduction to colors and shapes. There are three variations for different ages. All variations involve placing 40 (*) plastic tiles of different colors (red, blue, green, yellow) and different shapes (circle, square, triangle, hexagon, trapezoid) in their proper positions on the gameboard. Some variants involve using two specialized dice (1 color die, 1 shape die).
The game has quality components and is designed to encourage children to compare and arrange, and to practice manual dexterity and logical thinking.
(*) Note that older editions had plastic tiles in 5 colors and 5 shapes. The fifth color was Orange, thus there were 5*5*2=50 tiles. It may be possible that even other distributions exist.
