The art crimes of the Second World War are featured front and center in the new game Operation F.A.U.S.T., where players bluff and guess their way to finding and trading stolen art. “F.A.U.S.T.” is an acronym standing for Fine Art Underground: Stolen Treasures, and the game is set against the threat of the Third Reich’s Einsatzstab Reichsleiter Rosenberg division that sought to plunder the artistic riches of occupied lands. According to The Oklahoman News,

To start the game, players receive two plot cards and five INTEL tokens. Plot cards allow players to take on certain roles in the game, including using an accompanying ability. INTEL tokens can be used to purchase a variety of things in the game.

In addition, an art cache is created by drawing four cards from the art deck. These cards remain face down and are available to any player who can purchase them. These art cards contain a piece of artwork with an attached value. Collect $1,000,000 worth of art cards and win.
