In the high stakes game of fine art auctions, beauty is in the eye of the bidder

Reiner Knizia’s classic high stakes art auction game, Modern Art, gets a modern makeover. You control a world class museum and hope to make a pretty penny by buying and selling masterpieces of modern art. Over the course of four rounds, each player will get a chance to auction off paintings. The more popular the artist, the more money you can make on a sale. There are five different types of auctions to compete in, and they all require you to have a different skill set. The winner will be the one who has earned the most money for their museum. Having good taste is only half the battle. You need to approach each sale with a cutthroat attitude if you want to walk away the winner.

Market Value

The value of an artist’s work is determined by how many of their paintings sell. The more popular they are, the more money their work can be sold for.

Alternating Auctions

There are five different types of auctions in the game. Each one requires a unique strategy if you hope to get the best bargain.

Real Beauty

Modern Art features the work of some of he most talented artists in the world. Each piece that goes up for auction is breathtaking to behold.
