A completely unknown game that me and my mate decided to play one evening, which ended up being an entire weekend.

It's a confused game that is part whodunnit, part resource / trading sim, part art lesson, but it's handled well and if you're willing to take it on with an open mind you can get some genuine fun out of it.

Leuk stel, maar qua idee niet orgineel, die is een (betere) versie van het oude Vermeer van de C64

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.

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.
