About Starving Artists

There’s no question: the life of a paint-by-cube artist is hard. There’s no regular paycheck by which to live. What little money you do have you invest right back into buying more paint and new canvases. Without that paint and those canvases, you won’t be able to follow your dream. It’s a constant struggle between fame and food.

Starving Artists is an award-winning, blind-drafting and resource management game for one to four players.  Using some of the world’s most beautiful works of art, players complete masterpieces in an attempt to become famous artists. It takes about 40-60 minutes (approximately 20 minutes per player).

Starving Artists comes with everything that an aspiring artist needs: paints, canvases and food. It comes with things that you probably wouldn’t think about: telescoping box, rulebook, paint bag and a carrot marker (to mark the first player).

52 Jumbo Cards with great works of art and 145 acrylic cubes.

It comes with components for one to four players including player references and player markers.
