Review:
It's hard not to like an elegant card game with works of art by famous artists, handsomely printed on good-stock glossy cards. Go Fish for Art is a card game for 2-3 players. It offers the standard Go Fish Game as well as a Memory Game. Eight artists are represented by three works of art or sculpture. The twist on the standard Memory Game is played by turning over and matching identical, unturned cards. In this case, you have to match up one of four cards, all of different paintings or works of art, but by the same artist. For instance Marc Chagall is represented by "Paris through the Window", "Birthday", "The Juggler" and "The Rooster". The cards are color-coded (he's light blue) and numbered (he's 2) and each represents a different painting. In the Go Fish game, players ask for one of the three other paintings by one artist listed on a card. Although this game can't be played by non-readers, a family can easily use the cards as a prelude to or follow up to a museum visit.
