The Great Art Race is basically a board game for the PC. I do not usually play these anymore, but this has been great fun. My only criticism is that it could have been more developed in terms of things like building up plantation towns, share fluctuations and opening up new areas. The main focus of the game is making enough money to buy paintings to inherit your uncle's (meagre) fortune. Tried playing it turn based with a guest and it worked very well for entertainment. Might want to turn the game sounds down a bit as the choo choo gets a bit tired.

The Great Art Race is an old game that is only available in a package. While flawed in some aspects, it is well worth grabbing if you are into management games. Specifically for this one, time management.

The players are the family of the wealthy art collector, explorer, and general high society member Uncle Walter. There are two problems, however. Firstly, your uncle is old. He is nearing the end of his life and is looking for an heir to his fortune. Secondly, his prized art collection has been stolen. All the paintings have gone missing, and are popping up at auctions.
He thusly decided that the one to bring back the most of his precious collection would be his heir.

This means it is up to you, and up to 4 other family members to get back those paintings. In order to get them you will need to start plantations, get yourself a fortune by producing up to five different crops and selling them in either London or New York. Prices fluctuate, and there are orders placed in advance you can fill for more profit. You can buy shares in the companies who transport these goods, and you can pay your opponent's workers to strike and stop working.
Aside from the economic things going on, you have a reputation to uphold. Explore the jungles, adventure in Asia, and bring back fancy figurines and other such interesting things. Bet on horse races, and of course spend time with your uncle before the end.
And all of this while still making your way to auctions and having the money needed to buy the paintings.

Paintings that could be forgeries. You can luckily take art classes to identify these(A PDF is included with the game, you will need it to check what is real and what is not), at which point you can bid up the price of a forgery if your opponents don't know it is one to make them lose out on money, or you can just let them outbid eachother for millions of dollars on what you know is a fake.
The gameplay is mainly about time management, rather than managing your business. Travel across the world is faster than in the age of sail, but it still takes several days to travel anywhere. And that adds up. You can only personally tell your warehouse to ship goods, so you need to be in India to send goods from there to London. And you can only personally pay your workers, but if you don't pay, they stop working. It is all about managing your time, and making sure you are in the right place at the right time while still having enough money to do what you need to do.

The greatest of flaws, aside from its age locking it at a smaller resolution than most screens and potentially making it difficult to get it working on some computers, is the multiplayer.
By which I mean, the AI are not too great at the game, and the only multiplayer is local multiplayer.
It would be a much more enjoyable game if it were one that could be played with friends over the internet.

As it is, The Great Art Race is an interesting, somewhat hidden game that is quick to play and finish (About an hour per ingame year), satisfying to get through, and yet leaves you wanting more of it. Assuming of course you can look past the small flaws and slight inconsistencies out there.

Man hat das Spiel innerhalb von wenigen Stundne durchgespielt. Für die paar Stunden war es ganz nett, aber so gut, dass ich es öfter durchspielen möchte, ist das Spiel auch nicht.

Positiv bleibt zu erwähnen, dass jede Fraktion auch von Spielern übernommen werden kann, und das Spiel im Hot-Seat-Modus gespielt werden kann.

I had absolutly no knowledge and very low expectations about this game when started this game. Originally I got this game as a part of the Patriciants and Merchant bundle (The Great Art Race + Darkstar One + Parician III).

When I got into the game it suprised me positively. It's nothing world-changing, but it's a fun little game. An interesting blend of tabletop looks and strategy computer games. And has it's own depths too (to buy paintings you need money, witch comes from the plantations, wich need to be looked after, or else it stops producing for this or that reason, than to actually got the paint you have to travel to the auction and outbid the other players, etc...), though you has to get used to some of the game rules.

But it's still a pleasent option to kill some time with it, especially if you got only 5-10 minutes or half-an hour to do so. And maybe this is the game's only true problem. It's meant to be played in short bursts, otherwise it easily gets repetitive and tedious.

Still, to those, who seek a game that is quick to pick up, easity to return to, with just the right amount of strategizing, very basic economy simulation and the simplistic, stylzied look of a tabletop game, this is the right call for them.

What an interesting little gem of a game this is.

I had my eyes on Patrician III, as it was well reviewed was on sale for less then a dollar. Then I see it comes in a bundle with two other games. This one, The Great Art Race, perked my interest a bit. Only in a bundle? Not for sale on it's own? It can't be that good then.

My mistake completely.

What we have here is an extremely solid resource management/board game. Essentially you play as one of five nephews/nieces to a rich uncle, who is terminally ill and wishes one of you to inherit his fortune. The condition? Become insanely wealth and then use said wealth to attend art auctions in hopes of finding and retrieving his stolen artwork. And how does someone become insanely wealthy? By travelling to smaller cities like Bombay, Guatemala, Mexico City and Saint Louis, among others, and buying up land for plantations and hiring workers.

There's a pattern to the game. You visit your plantations and pay your workers, ship the goods to London or New York for sale, go to one of those cities to sell them at the market value or sign future dated contracts to sell them at a higher price, and then when all that is done you can find an auction to attend. No auctions? Maybe you can attend an activity for the exclusive social club you're all members of. Horse racing to bet on? Maybe take an expensive expedition in a foreign land in hopes of finding something valuable? Maybe visit your uncle and get drunk with him, or help him re-arrange his salon? This all raises your reputation which can result in you getting a bonus paining at the end of the year.

Maybe you can attend an art class to determine if a painting is real or fake (basically allowing you to make sense of the included decoder file)

There are two game modes. The main one tasks you with locating the most paintings, with bonuses for all paintings of a series and for the aforementioned bonus paintings. The other tasks you with just having the most assets, with paintings adding to your overall value. Each one can be played against any combination of computer players or human players via hotseat. You can also set the difficulty, and set the length of the game to 2, 5, or 7 years.

There's a fair bit of depth here. It's quite fun all in all, even on your own. The music for the cities is catchy, and the colorful graphics and sound effects make it a pleasant audio and visual experience. Having not played either Darkstar One or Patrician III (the other games in the bundle) yet I cannot comment on them but The Great Art Race is so enjoyable it alone is worth the cost of the bundle.

Für alle die noch Vermeer vom PC oder Atari kennen: Genau hierbei handelt es sich um den Titel "The Great Art Race". Es ist Vermeer :-)
Ich mag diesen Titel: Das Rennen um die echten Bilder und das mitbieten bei den Auktionen, die "Wirtschaftssimulation mit dem Anbau der Felder und dem terminegerechten Verkauf der produzierten Ware, das Reisen zu den Plantagen, die Sabotagen (am besten mit einem menschlichen Mitspieler spielen) und ich mag auch die Streiks. Mir macht das Spiel einfach Spaß, auch wenn es nicht in deutscher Sprache angeboten wird. Die Wörter sind sehr übersichtlich und sind für nicht englischsprachige schnell erlernt.
Wir reden hier nicht von einer megakomplexen Wirtschaftssimulation, aber für den Spaß für zwischendurch bzw. für ein paar Stunden ist "Vermeer" super geeignet.

P.S: Das Spiel ist im 4:3 Format und bei Windows 10 stürzt es nach dem beenden auf dem Desktop ab. Das Spiel an sich funktioniert aber.

This game is great fun and have so much things to do. If you dont like old craphics dont buy but it didnt disturb me. Its lot of fun to try get lots of paintings. It combines many elements from different kind of games, and does it succesfully. This game works well on win 7 i dont know about win 8/10. If you want to try something little different and refreshing TRY this.

It is a good game, a great combination of goals and activities, but it needs some serious modification. It's a great idea. It completely lacks any sort of tutorial or guide, or pop-up hints, and some of the b.s. you have to deal with is just lamely frustrating, but that doesn't make the game bad. It's fun to try, I'd like to try the multi-player.
If you're looking for a game to rip-off or plagerixe, this game would be a great starting point. Re-theme it and tweak some things to make it better.

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.

Not really that bad. It's a simple game that lets you travel the world, and raise money to find stolen paintings. The concept is kind of strange, I'll admit, but reminds me of tycoon games of the mid-'00s like Chocolatier. Somewhat repetitive gameplay but pretty dang fun and rewarding. It also supports local multiplayer which is missing from so many games these days. Lots of replay value too!

I recommend this game. It is an interesting take on high level management in a high profit industry.
You travel the globe exploiting the locals for high profits. It is not a very in-depth simulation and would be very easy to play again with even better results.
I class it similar to other buy/sell games a la drug wars, etc. It seems not very random which makes it easy to understand what you need to concentrate on to make a profit.
Again, recommended.

I expected this game to be about art. Instead, it turned out to be a resource management game. In this game, you compete against your counsins to be the top buyer of legitimate paintings. You start off in 1918 and set off to invest the cash you've been given in stocks and plantations around the world.

The many things you do:

- Sign forward contracts to sell goods from your plantations
- Educate yourself in the arts
- Bet on horses (sadly limited to just $10,000 per race)
- Bid on art auctions (beware of fakes)

Timing is key in this game. Unfortunately, the in-game data management is a bit lacking. I found myself jotting down in a notepad where my plantations were, what was being grown there, required amounts to fulfill open forward contracts, and calculating what I can do between dates.

Other notes:

Graphics are fine (it's an old game that doesn't need intensive graphics for what you do). The music is pretty fantastic. Very catchy tunes for each city you visit. A few seem out of place for the location. I'm not so certain about the era (not a music expert).

Concluding note: this is the kind of game that's entertaining until you figure it out and get the hang of maxing out your cash and meeting deadlines. I'll definitely come back to it some time in the future.

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.

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.

This is a resource management game where you have to meet certain goals by deadlines whilst carefully watching your and your opponents' money and assets. If you enjoy gameplay similar to East India Company (minus the warfare aspect), then you will probably enjoy this game. Personally, not for me, but don't let my opinion spoil it for you. **

If you like merchant style games, this game will do you well.
No tutorial makes it a small struggle before you start to swim, but it's no were near as complex as other merchant games I've tried.
The time limits and other AI players are an interesting addition and actually give you a sense of time and need that most other games don't.

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.

Typical buy here, sell there, game with timeline in place. You can purchase land and grow crops and then sell the crops. The game is what it is. If you don't expect anything more you will not be dissapointed.

You might like this game if:
You enjoy games where you simple games where you manage resources and play different markets.

Recover the stolen paintings of your rich, eccentric uncle in order to inherit his fortune. Bid on auctions. Buy plantations in various colonies around the world. Trade stocks. Bet on horse races. Sip sherry with your uncle. Mind you, while you are doing all this, WWI in raging across Europe, and French and German towns are aflame.

A simple, educational game that just wants to teach your about the various painting styles of the early 20th Century? Or a damning indictment of how only the poor suffer through the horrors of war?

There is lot of strategy involved in this game. Controlling plantations, betting on horses, buying/selling stocks, goingon exeditions, etc. are some of the options available. This is not evn include attempting to buy paintings, which may or may not be authentic.

Acguired this game as an addon part of a bundle deal. The play this more than the primary and seondary games.

This is a resource management game in which you try to inherit your rich Uncle's fortune by retrieving his stolen art collection. Along the way you'll build up a global plantation empire, invest in stocks and hotels, participate in art auctions, and (of course!) sabotage your rivals.

For a game that was released in 2009 the graphics are very underwhelming. But graphics aren't everything, and I'll play anything as long as it has an interesting premise. This game's premise of being one of the wealthy elite during the Roaring Twenties appealed to me so I gave it a try.

Unfortunately there are some flaws that cause this game to fail.

Firstly, there is no in-game tutorial so I had to go hunting for the manual which I eventually found hidden in one of my steam directories. You really need to read the manual before starting the game, otherwise you won't have a clue how to get started.

Secondly and most importantly, there are game-stopping bugs. I was running Windows 7 64 bit and had random crashes. I once made it two years into the game but then I got a crash that I couldn't avoid even using the auto-save, so that was it for me.

It's a shame, there's 95% of a game here, if they could have just done some more polish it could have been a decent resource management game. But since it came out in 2009 it's doubtful these bugs will be fixed, so I have to give it a thumbs down until further notice.
