This game is the 9th game of the Gryphon Games bookshelf series and is based on the classic board game Modern Art.
Masters Gallery is a very simple game to play where every player starts off with 13 cards in hand and players take turns placing cards in front of them. Once a certain color reaches 6 (5 for 2 player) amongst every one the round ends. The players then place the point discs (3 points, 2 points, 1 point) from most color cards on the table to 2nd most to 3rd most.
Each player scores for the color card they have placed down in front of them that won 1st (3 points) 2nd (2 points) 3rd (1 point) this round. Another round commences and this goes on for a total of 4 rounds.
Now that is the very basic rules but it is the core of the game nonetheless. There are also other cards that allow you to place more cards down, but to combat that *difficulty* every one receives an extra card that has simple instructions on how to use these special cards.
The cards are extremely durable compared to Dominion and Magic The Gathering. Each card comes printed with paintings from 5 famous painters which make these cards extremely apealing.
The game play last from 15-30 min. (faster if some one has a calculator)
I personaly find this game enjoyable. Masters Gallery never lasts long enough to feel unwelcome, but there is just enough strategy to make this game entertaining.
There are special cards that allow players to place cards face down. At the end of the round players reveal their face down cards which can change the outcome of which color (painting) won that round.

Unlike some of the other entries in the Gryphon Games bookshelf series, this is not a reprint of an older game, but is a genuinely new product, and for me it was a pleasant surprise. The components are good quality, and the game-play especially with 2 or 3 players can make it a very strategic game. Although there's still some luck of the draw, there's lots of strategic and tense tactical decisions to make. The game also plays quite quickly, is easy to teach, and once you've got the knack of it, you'll find yourself wanting to play it more than once.
It's probably not going to be the first choice to play with Uncle Bob, who's played a lifetime of Scrabble and UNO, nor is it going to become the main course on a game night for serious gamers. But it's an intriguing filler for gamers, and will primarily appeal to those looking for a smart filler that plays quickly and yet offers interesting tactical and strategic decisions, with a clever and satisfying Knizia scoring system. Reiner Knizia's classic "Modern Art" without auctions and with new art still results in a game with a clever Knizia feel. - EndersGame @ BGG
