Reiner Knizia's Modern Art: The Card Game
By Skotos Tech
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Modern Art: The Card Game is Reiner Knizia's classic game of card management and valuation. Given a hand of works from five different artists, you must drive up the prices of your favorites while simultaneously holding back those artists' works to assure yourself of better prices in later rounds.
Can you predict the buzz?
Six different opponents, each with their own personality, will challenge you at a variety of levels, from EASY to HARD. Figuring out how to work with each will increase your odds of winning the game.
Modern Art: The Card Game is built on the same MobileEuroCard platform that RPGnet has used to release four other games by Reiner Knizia and Michael Schacht. Simple gestures, colorful animations, and evocative sounds all combine to make a great gaming experience.
Though we have included our first iteration of Game Center support, there is NO MULTIPLAYER SUPPORT; that is expected in a future release of the game.
This is the SAME GAME as MASTERS GALLERY, but it uses the artwork of modern tyros rather than classical masters. Though Modern Art: The Card Game shares a setting and general ideas with the auction tabletop release Modern Art, it is a different game.

Solid game but not board game
Originally got this thinking it was the board game. I have been pleasantly surprised as the game is fun and addictive. The AI is reasonably challenging. If you liked the original Modern Art this card game version has the same spirit and is very enjoyable.
Not the same game
If you like the original board game called Modern Art by Reiner Knizia, this is not that game. Different rules, different style, different play. It's a bait-and-switch job: same name, same designer, same icon art, otherwise different. If you want to play the original Modern Art game by Reiner Knizia on your phone, do NOT buy the Modern Art by Reiner Knizia app.
I'm 1-starring every Skotos game that I have until they either learn to or hire someone who knows how to implement multiplayer through Game Center. Quit making iOS versions of Knizia's games unless you are going to do it right! Let someone else do it properly.
