The Game of Being an Artist

Artist Board Game


Live the life of an artist without the tuition, bills, poverty and uncomfortable burning sensations! The Game of Being an Artist takes you from Podunk, USA to fame and fortune, if you can manage to avoid poverty, jail and death. For 2-4 players and a 6-sided die. Created by Molly Crabapple, John Leavitt and Chris Lowrance.

This is a beautiful offset poster at 11×17″ that you can play. The top half is the board game, the bottom half contains all the instructions. Create your own game pieces and play or keep it hanging on your wall. Comes rolled in a tube, not folded.

Please note it references drug use, swearing, out of wedlock pregnancy, and narcissistic personalities. It is not intended for children.
