Neat Game but a bit oversimple

My kids grew up overseas and are quite familiar with Renaissance paintings. They've seen many of these paintings and are very familiar with them. I realize this is not the typical situation. I was disappointed that the game is basically a game of luck. It is not challenging or reinforcing of our kid's knowledge. I had hoped for a game like "Famous Authors" which builds on and tests the level of knowledge of the players. Nonetheless, the game is well presented. It's on the expensive side, but the book alone is worth half the price. Looking for a fancy gift with cultural overtones? I recommend this.

My Kid is Addicted to this Book

I purchased this book when we took the kids (10, 8 and 8) to visit the Louvre this summer so they would have some idea why we were wandering around that vast building. Little did I know that it would spark an interest in my 8 year old son that borders on the obsessive. He has read the book two dozen times, spouts off all kinds of interesting facts about the artists and the times, and studies the paintings intently (this from a kid who has no artistic talent at all and whose favorite pasttime is sparring with his brother). The stories behind the paintings, the odd facts about the artists and the practices of the Renaissance period, are all presented in a compelling way with beautiful illustrations to boot. I recommend this highly readable and entertaining book.

A lovely game for kids

This is a great way to painlessly teach your kids about art and the quality of the photographs is just exceptional.

A Great Game!

I received this game as a gift and it really is a great! The book that comes with it would have been a perfect 'Cliff Notes' for the Art History classes I had in school. My eight-year-old daughter won the first game we played and I'm re-learning lots of stuff I had forgotten. Highly recommended!

What a fun way to get your kids to enjoy art

Wow! My kids(8yo and 5yo)love to play this game~ They really enjoy this version of Go Fish~ We have all been enjoying the thrill of recognition when we see these artist's works in other places~ Well worth the money~
