Three Critics. One set of Tools. NO EXCUSES!

Remove and accentuate cards from your block of marble—your starting deck of cards—using a shared set of tools to please the critics and win! Chiseled is a thematic and strategic deck-deconstruction game for 1-4 players.

Your starting marble is worth very little. Remove Scrap and extraneous pieces to accentuate and score what remains.

The Critics from across history will judge ALL players’ sculptures once ANY player’s looks polished enough, represented by “check-ins.”

Each Tool is unique, and can only be re-used once ALL tools have been selected. Will you go for fine detail with a Pointed Chisel? Plan your next actions with the Maquette? Or take a wild swing with the Heavy Sledge, possibly damaging your opponents’ work?Includes 24 “Sine Cera” Waxed Marble cards for variant “take-that” play, and 3 solo challenges for solitaire sculpting.
