Couldn't find (sorry if I missed it) a thread on this, but did find some images uploaded by

Obviously it's the same game just cosmetic/packaging differences which are...





But the big difference is the face of the cards, ie. the art work on them...


Guess that's why the Masters Gallery edition is more expensive, must have had to license the art work!

Really? I much prefer Masters Gallery - the art is so much more interesting to look at.

I would happily trade my copy of Modern Art: TCG for Masters Gallery...

Ah, see I didn't know that... I went through the 88 images but didn't see one comparing the card faces between the two. Yes, the real art work from MG does look nicer... wish I could have that in the MA:TCG box, but I'm a function over form person. It does explain why the MG edition is $5 (after discounting) more expensive than the MA:TCG edition

edit: actually I did find one... missed it because I thought it was comparing Masters Gallery to the Mayfair 2nd edition boardgame edition Have updated base post. May have to see if I can pick up a MG edition in a math trade or something. Thanks for pointing it out!!

The real art makes it very much harder for color-blind people to play the game. Just warning you....

yes, good point... I assume that's because each card by the same artist has different piece of art work... while the MA:TCG edition each card by same artist is same piece so you can tell "suits" apart that way?

While I had originally created this thread to compare cosmetic differences between the two editions....

... recently someone tried to tell me there are actually some small rule differences between them?? I now own both editions and could spend the time comparing the rule books but thought I asked if anyone knows already? Would have thought it would have come up if if there were so I doubt it but never know...

The only notable difference that I know of is the order of card colours. In MA:tCG the colours (from rarest to most common) go Yellow, Green, Orange, Purple, Brown. In Masters Gallery, the order is Yellow, Purple, Orange, Green, Brown. It makes no difference whatsoever to the gameplay.

Jeff,

Since you have both versions, would you have the time to post or send me a copy/PDF of the rules to either? I have been trying to find some version, but to this point have been unsuccessful.

Thanks.

Sadly they don't include electronic version of the rules in either edition

The box of Modern Art is smaller (which is good) and looks cooler too.

We're a bit late to the party, but are a bit confused. We have Masters Gallery and two versions of modern art - but they appear to be significantly different. The Mayfair version has bidding and screens, and the yellow airplane Gyphon games seems to have neither, like Masters Gallery.

This thread is about Modern Art: The Card Game (and its almost identical twin, Masters Gallery). Not Modern Art - that is a different game (an auction game).

Well, how weird is that. Our modern art (card game) looks very similar to a version of modern art. Ah well, mystery solved. Turns out we've gained an additional game rather than another copy of the same game. Great! 😊

I just posted another thread to have someone explain the difference between the three games.

I am confused.
