Game Overview

Artline: Hermitage is a unique game of associations where you don’t have to be an art connoisseur! Your creativity and quick-wittedness will be just enough!
In this game, you will be developing a grid of magnificent paintings where each row and column will represent a gallery with a certain common feature defined by you and other curators. Your aim is to play your cards at the intersections of the galleries, so you can hold impressive exhibitions and become one step closer to victory each time you do that!
This edition is supported by the State Hermitage Museum, and all the paintings are unique. You will find Caravaggio, Van Gogh, Leonardo da Vinci, Picasso and many other masterpieces here, and Artline will not only be a whole lot of fun — it will also broaden your horizons in the fine arts!

English Review by All the Meeples of the Rainbow — Reading Time: 3 min.

This was a very cute and clever game. I loved trying to think of clues outside of the box and be a little sly.

The gameplay is a solid family game, with easy to teach rules. The flexibility of allowing players to come up with links is a great concept, with different groups driving their own metas.

An easy-going exercise for the lovers of art. 

German Review at brettundpad.de — Reading Time: 3 min.

Kunst liegt im Auge des Betrachters und das zeigt Artline auf ganz eigene Art. Auf die Frage was Werke von Picasso und Raffaello gemeinsam haben, wäre die richtige Antwort: nackte Füße!

Italian Review by I Giochi Del Topo — Reading Time: 5 min.

“Artline” potrebbe sembrare un gioco semplice, ed effettivamente all’inizio può essere abbastanza facile collocare carte in una galleria che presenta elementi comuni a quelle già appese sui suoi muri, ma quando si andranno ad intersecare i temi, vera chicca del gioco, le cose si faranno molto più dure ed occorrerà fare uno sforzo creativo notevole per scorgere anche dei particolari che magari non risaltano subito all’occhio.

Dutch Review by SpinLi — Reading Time: 2 min.

Artline is een tof tussendoortje. Zeker als je een kunstkenner en/of liefhebber bent, zal het thema je wel aanspreken. Maar ook als je er geen kaas van gegeten hebt, kan je dit spel perfect gaan meespelen.

Artline може да изкара повече смехове и от мемета с панди.
