In this art-themed board game, players take control of larvae hunting for works of art in various locations across the University. The larvae are highly cultured beings and need inspiration from art works in order to stay alive! Players draw cards representing different types of art (e.g. painting, sculpture) and have to decide whether to play them immediately for in-game bonuses / penalties or retain them for scoring at the end of the game. The player with the highest art value at the end is the winner. Cultured Ai (Arts for Ai) uses CRC plans of McEwan Hall(http://bit.ly/1WN7C4t), the Medical School(http://bit.ly/1QjoHyW) and Glencoe Ballachulish(http://bit.ly/1R6d4LJ) for the game board.
