Masterpiece Board Game

DSC00695

Looking for a fun board game? Take a look at Masterpiece, a board game by Parker Brothers that is no longer in print. It’s for you, especially if you love art. A terrific game, not as stress inducing as monopoly, or painful as Sorry. You get to wheel and deal like a true art collector. Clever, artful, and entertaining.

From Wikipedia: Masterpiece is a board game by Parker Brothers, now a brand of Hasbro. Players participate in auctions for famous works of art. It was originally published in 1970 by Parker Brothers, and then published again in 1976 and 1996. The game is now out-of-print. In this game, players compete with other players to bid on potentially valuable paintings, and negotiate with other players to trade these works of art, build a portfolio, amass money, and win the game. The top value of a painting in the 1970 edition is $1 million, and $10 million in the 1996 edition; however, getting the full value for the painting requires some luck in landing on the right square on the board to sell a painting to the bank.

  1. I’ve been looking for the title and artist’s for that really bright modern painting (4th row down, last one on the right) with the squares. Could you tell me who the artist is and the title?

  2. Hello –

    Much like the previous message, would you please send back the name of the painting before that one inquired to above. Its’ the one following ‘Nighthawks’. We refered to it as ” Foil Art ”

    Many fond memories playing Masterpiece.

    Thanks
