Based on the popular television show by the same name, Storage Wars is a pure auction game where players take the roles of characters from the show and bid on the contents of storage lockers in hopes of winning big.
Players begin by selecting one of six character cards. These cards indicate which categories of items are worth extra for you, and you will most likely share a category with another player. At the beginning of each round (called an episode), players draw item tokens, look at them (without revealing them to the other players}, and discreetly place them into any of the four storage lockers at the center of the table. Next, players bid on the lockers one at a time. Do you bid on what you know or try for unseen treasure? When all four lockers have been claimed, players reveal what they've won, or lost. After three episodes, the player with the most money wins.
