Our real-time fantasy art collecting game allows you compete alongside collectors to see who can realize the best prices for the most sought after collection.
" Fantasy art auction was every bit as fun as playing fantasy sports. I was able to watch the the live video feed of the Sotheby's sale and found myself riveted as I rooted hard for my lots. "

You have a budget to "buy" your collection. You are buying the works at the low estimate. (The estimates provided here are for the purposes of the game only.)
Select as many works as fit into your budget, in any combination that you like. Just don't exceed the budget. You can concentrate your budget on some very valuable works or spread it among a number of cheaper works. You don’t have to use all of the budget allocated to the game. Unused budget is applied to your collection total. (If you think the lots are over-priced and won’t sell, keeping some of your budget is a viable strategy.)
You may change your selections up until the game closes. You will get an email reminder an hour before the closing time.
As the auctions take place, we'll calculate what your collection is "worth" based upon the hammer prices. The collection that is "worth" the most at the end wins. (Works that sell to an irrevocable bid are scored with the hammer price. Guaranteed works that are bought in or sold to a 3rd party guarantor without bidding in the auction are scored as works that do not sell. Withdrawn lots will also be scored as works that do not sell.)
Total prizes will be posted at the top of each game. On the scoreboard, you will see the descending value of prizes awarded for1st, 2nd, 3rd, and so forth where applicable. (Ties will split the combined prizes of the position and the applicable prizes below.)
