Fun, interesting, a mix of developing plantations in different parts of the world with saving to buy paintings, while gambling stocks or betting on horses.
It has short to long games, so you can choose what you want and get an end game.

The Great Art Race is a light, simple, short, and casual strategy game. Once you develop a system for creating cash and being punctual to the auctions, it will be an almost effortless win even on the more advanced difficulty setting. There are some randomized events, but they will not effect the outcome very much. The graphics and presentation are not impressive at all, to say the least. There is very little animation, and minimal sound. It is fun for about two hours or so, keeping in mind there won't be very much of a replay value. Once you're done (and you'll be done quickly), there's not much to go back to. It somehow reminds me of a less fun Jones in the Fast Lane from the early 90s. I played for about 2 hours, and I plan on keeping it installed for the time being, just in case I feel like playing a quick "coffee break" game.

The Great Art Race is okay.

Decent game. It can help you pass a few hours. Not worth a repeat play.

I like the basic version of the game for Commodore C64 Vermeer from which the game is based on. The Great art Race (original German game Vermeer 2) is the latest version of this kind of game.
But, I can't recommend it for all bussiness/strategy players.

This game is great fun as the hotseat play with friends (2-5), or only for one player.

The game is easy, that there are not more options like in the previous version of the Vermeer-Die Kunst zu Erben, but the game still fun.

A remake of the classic C64 game Vermeer. So not a board game and should not be confused for one....

By building plantations with different crops you're trying to create enough wealth to get the best art collection. To make things intresting there's stock trading, an auction where you try to buy the paintings and scripted events from the historic timeline(early 19th century) that affect markets. For the paintings you also have the option of studying art directions so you can spot fakes. Or to raise price for your competitors who might not even realise what you're doing... Good fun.
