Marvelous game design by Knizia. Simple and clever mechanism for driving up the value of the painting. Simple and clever push-your-luck mechanism for ending the round. Mixing in face-down cards and simultaneous reveal cards for uncertainty. Quick set up. Quick game play.

I love this one. You need to do math to compute the score, and sometimes with many players a round can end quickly not giving the last player many opportunities to play scoring artwork, but I am amazed how difficult it is to win consistently at this game. Perfect balance between chaos and control.

Easier than the auction mechanic of Modern Art, which is an improvement for a quick light filler.

I really like this game.......played it two player so far, and I really appreciate the feeling, mechanisms and strategy..........it exceeded my expectations by far.....and i can't wait to play it again and again...........get this game.........i will let you and me know more as i sink more into a non-knew game that i have fallen in love with mentality........long live reiner

Update: The hottest game at our week long vacation with my brother's family.......played many games.....currently our favorite card game......elegant, strategic, aesthetically pleasing, well balanced, perfect amount of luck to keep old and new hands at the game at a somewhat equal level......after one game, you start the "ah-ha! I will do that!" love it...going up to a 9 out of respect......will update as we go

can't stop playing update............love it.

(Modern Art: The Card Game) They should rename this game as "Modern Art: The Auction-free" or something since the original Modern Art was a card game anyway. The game is excellent and it may be an introduction for Modern Art as well. Tried this with 2,3,4, and 5 players. 2 is kinda weird but it works.

(Masters Gallery) If it is the deluxe version of MA:TCG, then why didn't they at least include scoring coins/board? Nice to have real artists painting.

Worth playing! Another great success from Gryphon. Nice production values. Easy to learn, but lots of nuance. A definite buy recommendation.

Masters Gallery -- Played twice; three- and four-player.

Excellent filler! I think we were all surprised by how much we like this!

Masters Gallery pares away Modern Art's auctions (and thereby the connection with its theme) and leaves an elegant, satisfying filler.

Modern Art without the auctions, available in one of two editions with classic or modern artwork. This will primarily appeal to those looking for a smart filler that plays quickly and yet offers interesting tactical and strategic decisions, with a clever and satisfying Knizia scoring system. Definitely one of the better fillers with Knizia's name on the box!

See my pictorial review: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/404682

Own the Master's Gallery edition.

See this thread and this thread and this thread and this thread for some rule notes about one ambiguous sentence in the rules. The correct interpretation (confirmed by the original German rules, by Knizia himself, and by how the iOS version plays, and contrary to Gryphon Games) is this: "For each different artist with MP cards displayed in front of the player, he may play one additional card OF THAT ARTIST from his hand"

Very much enjoying this game. As long as you aren't looking to compare it to Modern Art, this is a very good game. Most importantly for me, it plays well 2-player. [Masters Gallery version]

11/27/2012: I like how a player can think their doing really well in the first couple of rounds, and then get utterly destroyed in the last two. Unless it happens to me
