This is the king of all auction games. It's a wonder that it was ever out of production but it was! And now it's back!

Going Once... Going Twice... Sold! Buy your way to fame & fortune with Modern Art, the high stakes gallery auction game. Each player runs a gallery, choosing which pieces of art to sell from the collection, and which pieces to buy from other galleries. Bid on the right one and at the end of the round you could be rolling in the dough. Mistake a Pissaro for a Picasso and you could be out of luck and money.

Perfect for the Arm Chair Art Critic as well as anyone who enjoys a fast-action, highly entertaining board game.

In Modern Art, players compete to gain the most money by buying and selling paintings at auctions and reselling them for profit. All players take turns running the auctions, which come in many different styles. Whoever offers the top bid owns the painting and sells it at the end of the round. The price the painting fetches is based on the popularity of the artist and how well his paintings have sold in the past. The player with the most money at the end of four rounds of buying and selling wins.
