MASTERPIECE (OR: Artful Dodgers)
A downloadable game
A One-Shot RPG for 1-6 Players.
A brand new exhibition has just been unveiled at the local Museum, featuring a wealth of artworks by an internationally renowned artist. Maybe you’re one of this artist’s many enemies, maybe you’re an avid collector, or maybe you’re collecting on someone else’s behalf. Either way, these pieces are worth a lot, especially the feature piece of the exhibition – an enormous, hefty Masterpiece comprising many different disciplines.
The plan is simple – take as many items as you can lay your hands on, and leave expertly crafted forgeries in their place. There’s only one problem – you have no idea what the exhibition looks like, and no way to tell until you’re inside!
ROLL FOR FORGERY!
Whether it’s to make bank on some ludicrously expensive art, or to effect humiliation with some truly dreadful forgeries, the only one thing you have to do is make sure you escape the Museum before the night is over.
MASTERPIECE is a game about creativity, inspiration, and celebrating art in all its perceived successes or failures. Whether your aim is to leave indistinguishable counterfeits or cause embarrassment and shame, less successful forgeries should be described with as much love and humour as their more convincing counterparts – after all, what is art if you can’t learn from your own fumbling progress?
Feel free to make your game of MASTERPIECE your own as much as possible. Dress up in your best Artist Chic! Insert your own Antagonist! Tell the table about a piece of art you really do enjoy!
Above all, don’t forget to have fun!
