There's A Bob Ross Board Game For Anyone Who Wants To Reach Maximum Chill

- Page 1

2017 has seen the revival of many gems from our childhoods, and now everyone's beloved art instructor Bob Ross is making a comeback in the most unexpected way.

By no means would anyone who grew up watching Bob Ross on television ever liken him to the competitive type. I mean, there's no way painting "happy little trees" could be made into a competition, or so you thought.

There's a "Bob Ross: The Art of Chill" board game available for purchase, and we have been struggling to stay chill since finding out about its existence.

The game, obviously inspired by Ross's show The Joy of Painting, challenges two to four players to earn "chill points" by creating landscapes like "Almighty Mountains" and "Happy Little Trees" using brushes and colors from their hand of cards.

Sounds easy, right? Well, there's a catch: Players should finish the portrait before Bob does. The player with the maximum number of "chill points" wins.

Just like Bob's work on the show, the game requires some strategy, but the gentle artist is there every step of the way to offer "sage encouragement and bonus opportunities for even more chill."

We don't really know how people can manage to maintain a relaxed persona while competing for points, but it actually seems to be working for some and the game already has many fans.
