Stakes Bidding in the Galleries.
Going once... Going twice... Sold!
You're now the proud owner of a fine work by an aspiring artist. Who knows... he
could become the next Picasso! Of course, he could also be the next Trueba.
What, you've never heard of Trueba? Don't worry, no one has. He all but
disappeared after his first painting sold for... oh, about the same price you
just paid. Not to worry though, I'm sure yours will be worth something....
Welcome to the high-risk world of art auctions! You seek to earn profits selling
the works of up-and-coming new artists. Players take turns running auctions of
different styles, with the highest bidders claiming the artwork to sell at the
end of the round. But the value of each painting is based not only on the
popularity of the artist, but also on the success of his earlier work!
The goal is to have the most wealth at the end of the fourth round of auctions.
Do you have the insight to invest in the artists that will have the most staying
power throughout the auction season? Can you manipulate the art market so that
your favorite artist will give you the greatest return? Or will you be forced to
auction off your most valuable pices just to keep the doors of your gallery
Earn glory and respect for your internationally renowned gallery by outwitting
your opponents in the high-stakes world of Modern Art!
