Very fun game. Not sure whether the complaints that the bonus scoring based upon building two commissions by the same artist is inflationary based upon luck are true. If we find it to be, there is not much added to the game by that rule anyways, at least in a two player game. But for a game about art, it still has solid mechanics. People say it's too easy. I disagree, it is a nice level of depth. The theme works well in all the parts of the game. If this game was about elves, my wife would probably not like it and some who don't like it as is probably would. So if the theme isn't for you maybe pass. But if you like art there is a solid game with some of the best components of all time sitting in the thickest cardboard box ever to surround a board game waiting for you.
