Processing Timeframes

All our items that state are in stock, are physically in stock in our warehouse in Brisbane. We do not drop ship, or indicate we have items that we don't have physical stock of.

Processing time frames are as follows:

  • Board Games and accessories are Next Business Day.
  • 3DLevelup branded items are typically posted 1-3 Business Days.

For 3DLevelup branded items, whilst we have the items in stock, we need to often assemble, sort, quality check and pack your items which can take time. Sometimes our quality check prior to shipment will require us to re-print a small part.

If you have purchased a Pre-Order item (stated in the item name), our processing time is typically 5-10 business days as we need to print your order.

Our business operates Monday to Friday but we try and answer questions from the online chat outside business hours if able to do so. We understand many of our customers are in a very different time zone to us. Shipping drop offs and pickups are also Monday to Friday.

For domestic shipping Australia Post typically delivers within 5 business days. We often see deliveries in Brisbane locations take 2 business days.

For international orders it is typically 9-26 days but we have seen this extend out to 35 days to some countries.

In Canvas, you play as a painter competing in an art competition. Players will collect art cards, layering 3 of them together to create their own unique Painting. Each card contains a piece of artwork as well as a set of icons used during scoring. Icons will be revealed or hidden based on the way players choose to layer the cards making for an exciting puzzle. Paintings are scored based on a set of Scoring cards which will change each game. Ribbons are awarded for each picture based on the scoring cards. Once players have created and scored 3 paintings the game ends.

On your turn you may take an Art card or make a painting. Art cards are selected from a row of cards in the center of play. Each of these cards has a cost associated with their position. After selecting an Art card you must pay its cost by placing an Inspiration token on each of the cards to its left. If you do not have enough Inspiration tokens, you may not select that card. Any tokens on the card you have selected are kept for future turns. The far left card costs no Inspiration tokens to take.

If you have three or more Art cards you may chose to make a painting. Select 3 of your art cards, arrange them in any order and then score them by comparing the visible icons on your painting to the Scoring conditions.

Once all players have made 3 paintings the game ends, and then the ribbons are counted up for final scoring with the winner with the most points.

Our Review and Recommendation

Canvas does a great job of overlaying transparent cards to make new pictures and create some interesting works. Even without the game mechanics its interesting to see how the pictures are telling a story that you orchestrate. The game mechanics work well, and the scoring cards creates some variability to the gameplay. A very simple game to teach, beautiful art, and a fairly short game play makes Canvas a great game. The box comes with a place for the hook it, so you can literally hang it on the wall! We think this game plays much better at 3 or more players, but it can still be enjoyed at 2. Whilst the recommended age is 14 or higher, younger children 7 or up will likely have no problems playing this game.

We would rank this game a 7.5 / 10, and its a great game to play over a cup of coffee or tea. It's important to take our score as subjective, as everyone has different opinions and styles they like. For us we do like the more heavier games which would likely impact our score.

Upgrades and Expansions

There are two expansions currently available for Canvas.

  • Canvas Reflections Expansion
  • Canvas Finishing Touches Expansion

We have designed some little Art Easels that have retention string like the real ones. We have also designed a small organiser box for the cardboard tokens, that fits nicely in the original box with our easels.

There are some upgraded Ribbons available published by the board game but these are fairly hard to find.
