A The Great Collector egy kiváló társasjáték, 2 - 4 játékos részére, az átlagos játékidő rövidebb, csak 20 - 60 perc. A társast, 14 éves kortól ajánljuk kipróbálni. A játékmenet erősen épít a kollekció gyűjtés, az aukció/licit és a pakli építés mechanizmusokra.
Game story: You came into an unprecedented fortune of masterpiece paintings that previously belonged to some of the greatest collectors of the past - King Charles I, Kaiser...
You came into an unprecedented fortune of masterpiece paintings that previously belonged to some of the greatest collectors of the past - King Charles I, Kaiser Rudolf II, Empress Catherine the Great or a true visionary merchant Sergei Shchukin.
Their art heritage was scattered around the world and you now have the chance to make your mark and reunite these collections back again.
Start your hunt for the missing pieces - pave your way through the dark times of history, roll the dice on erratic art market and steal the show from other collectors in the quest for success.
This game is based on real history events that shaped the world of art we live in today. All the artworks involved did truly belong to the main characters at some point of their lives.
The gameplay is about creating your own strategy on the way to reassemble one of the greatest art collections of the past and preventing others from being the first to achieve that.
It simulates the turbulent art market with auction bidding, dealer and gallery sales, organising exhibitions and even bluffing when the stakes are high. Various historic and art market events - from maniacs to revolutions - can dramatically change the flow of the game.
To acquire new pieces for the collection you would obviously need some cash. And there are numerous ways to earn some by setting up thematic shows and selling artworks strategically. However, money only won't get you to the top. You have to level up your collector's skills to become the next Great Collector. This will widen your choices and give you a fair advantage on the market.
