We are excited to announce that Sartle has created a trivia game, and it is now available for purchase!

Order through Amazon, Barnes & NobleWalmart, and the Birmingham Museum of Art gift shop.

Rogue Art History: The Trivia Game is a fun and quirky card game where players answer trivia questions about art history, sabotage each other, and collect artwork along the way.

In this game, you will test your knowledge of art history by answering fascinating and sometimes hilariously shocking questions about artists and their artwork (don’t worry, it’s multiple choice).

Test your knowledge with 300 trivia questions that run the gamut from “What body part did van Gogh cut off?” to “How many pet Chow Chows did Georgia O’Keeffe own during her lifetime?”

You'll also learn facts like: Pablo Picasso was arrested in 1911 for stealing the Mona Lisa, the batmobile was inspired by a Leonardo da Vinci design, and Andy Warhol appeared on an episode of "The Love Boat." 

Explore six unique, totally intriguing categories of  Trivia Cards:

  • CREATURES
  • HISTORY-ISH
  • HUMANKIND
  • MISCHIEF
  • POP CULTURE
  • SEX(UALITY)

Each category is chock full of weird and wild facts.

Strategic "Rogue Scholar" cards can be used to help you answer questions, protect your precious artwork from getting stolen, and sabotage other players.

This game is for anyone who likes art, trivia, and having a laugh. It's designed for 4-6 players and is suitable for ages 14+.

We also created a special museum expansion pack for the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery collection!

Play the game on its own or combined with the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery edition for more art and 96 more trivia questions!

The Rogue Art History voice can be funny, and at times playfully irreverent, but the information is always factual. We hope that by being a little silly, we can help dispel the myth that art and art history are only for stuffy intellectuals. 

In accordance with this belief, the multiple choice format and the eclectic nature of our trivia (both in its historical scope as well as in its varying difficulty level) are designed to be welcoming for all players, from PhD holders to curious high schoolers just starting to learn about the classics.

You may be thinking, "But why a trivia game?". The Sartle team has come across so many strange and interesting facts throughout the years, we thought a trivia game would be the perfect way to get them out into the world. We didn't see any educational games on the market with attitude, and wanted to create an experience that was fun, felt contemporary, and that could be shared with others.

We hope you enjoy playing it as much as we've enjoyed creating it for you!
