Welcome to Museum: Pictura!
Museum: Pictura is the next opus in the Museum range, created by Olivier Melison and Eric Dubus. In this standalone set collection game for 2-4 players, you take on the role of an aspiring curator in an art museum.
Museum: Pictura’s lavish setting in the art deco paradise of the roaring 20’s has been illustrated by Loïc Muzy. The mammoth task of doing justice to the 180 classic works of art featured in the game has been taken on by Ekaterina Varlamov.
The aim of the game is to create collections of some of History’s most celebrated works of art. To fill your galleries, you will be acquiring Painting cards and placing them onto your Museum player board to create Collections. These Collections can be based either on the painting’s Period (ranging from the Renaissance period all the way to Impressionism), or its Style (Historical, Landscape, Mythological…). The Collections you create will earn you Prestige points, and the player with the most Prestige at the end of the game wins.
During play, you will have to deal with the changing trends of the art world, acquiring and exhibiting Paintings depending on what’s in highest demand. Exhibiting paintings of the types that are currently in fashion will gain you additional points!
As your Collections grow, you will be able to open them briefly to the public with a Temporary Exhibition, which allows you to immediately score that Collection’s value and obtain special bonuses for the rest of the game. But beware, your visitors will quickly grow tired of seeing the same types of Collection again and again, so timing your exhibitions correctly is essential!
Museum: Pictura brings exciting new mechanics and strategies to the table, while maintaining a strong family connection to its predecessor. With a wealth of ways to score points and plenty of player interaction, Museum: Pictura’s fresh mechanics bring a fascinating twist to the original Museum game, that is sure to delight veteran curators and new players alike! It also retains the original game’s cultural depth: all of the paintings featured in the game are real, and each card will tell you where you can go to see it.
Museum: Pictura will be on Kickstarter from March 3rd to March 24th 2020!
Late Pledges will be available soon.
