The November sales are bearing down upon us. So too is the AMM Fantasy Collecting game which gives you a chance to test your market acumen against your peers. Which of these Picassos will outperform estimates? All of them?
How It Works: We have selected $1bn worth of the most interesting lots. You put together a collection of works you think will perform the best against a budget of $200m. (Now you know why it is called ‘fantasy’ collecting.) Some players will choose the most expensive works. Others will sniff out the lots primed to pop. If a lot fails to sell or gets withdrawn from the sale, it is scored with a 0. All other lots are scored with their hammer price.
When You Have to Enter By: Register to see the lots. You only pay the $25 entry fee to save your choices. An hour before the first auction on Nov 13th, the game closes and your collection is final.
How You Win: During the auctions, the scoreboard will update automatically so you can see how your collection is performing against the other players.
What You Win: The top three collections based upon the hammer prices win $500, $300 and $200 respectively. There’s also bragging rights.
