Card game version of a Knizia classic June 19, 2012
Reviewer: EndersGame from BGG  
Despite some parallels, don't confuse this with Knizia's original Modern Art.  Unlike that classic, the card game version has no auctions, but is an excellent game in its own right.

The components are good quality, and the game-play especially with 2 or 3 players can make it a very strategic. There's still some luck of the draw, but also many strategic and tense tactical decisions to make. The game plays quite quickly, is easy to teach, and once you've got the knack of it, you'll find yourself wanting to play it more than once.

It certainly features intriguing gameplay, and will primarily appeal to gamers looking for a smart filler that plays quickly and yet offers interesting tactical and strategic decisions, with a clever and satisfying Knizia scoring system. Despite the absence of auctions, this is still a game with a clever Knizia feel.
