Floodgate Games announced Holi: Festival of Colors, a new pattern building multi-tiered board game, coming soon to retail stores.

In Holi: Festival of Colors, players celebrate the popular Hindu festival that marks the beginning of spring by making patterns of colored powders. There are Color cards that determine the pattern colored powder will fly in, and players spread colored powder tokens across the board to acheive the best coverage. The goal of the game is essentially area control, but there is a unique twist as the board is mult-tiered and has three levels to place powder tokens on. Players want to have their powder fall from above to give them more victory points by controlling more spaces on the board.

This game is for two to four players, ages 13 and up, and plays in 20 to 40 minutes. It will retail for $39.95.

Floodgate Games also announced Sagrada Life, a new modular expansion for Sagrada, which will be on preorder July 30 (see "Return to 'Sagrada' With the Second Great Facades Expansion").
