Everything you never wanted to know about the art-market.
GET RICH WITH ART is a completely new parlor game - a combination of a board and a computer game.
Two to six players are becoming art collectors. They are dealing art of 20 young and outstanding Berlin based artists and work on becoming rich and famous. The collectors also try to exhibit their artists in museums and galleries to earn not only money but also fame.
But a collector's life is not always that simple. Profane things like economic crashes in south east asia have a big influence on the world of art, as well as his son's love life. Scandal and terrorism, money and fame...
Life's not a game, GET RICH WITH ART isn't it, either.
Two to six players trade the art of 20 Berlin based artists. The players become collectors, who try to do as many shows in museums and galleries as possible.
Doing exhibition rises the fame of the collector and will earn points. The value of the art, the fame of the artist and therefore the fame of his collector is subject to the ups and downs of life. Social and economic event cards not only have a great influence your own collectors karma, you can also use them against your competitors.
Life, exhibitions, the trade of art, all the real life things take place in the real world of the board. The computer keeps track of the value of the art and the collectors' account information. Value is virtual. Somebody buying a picture will transfer the money by a mouse click.
GET RICH WITH ART can not be played without a computer, and it can not be played only on the computer. It is best, to place the computer on the table, so that all the players can see the monitor. A game with four collectors takes about 1,5 to 2 hours. The software is for PC and Mac. Plus: there are 12 audio tracks on the cd, which not only your cd player will enjoy.
