Can you keep calm while bids are rising? Experience the exhilaration of real life auctions!
In Going, Going, GONE!, players try to win items by bidding on five simultaneous auctions while the Auctioneer counts down from 10 to 1! Players bid on these five simultaneous auctions by physically dropping their wooden cubes (known as "Bucks") into any or all of the five transparent Auction Cups, each of which represents an auction for one or two Item Cards.
At the end of the countdown, the Auctioneer says "GONE!" and quickly places the Auction Paddle over the five Auction Cups to close the auctions. The player who has the most Bucks in each Auction Cup wins that auction and takes the Item Cards for that auction. Collections of items may be sold throughout the game for more Bucks, or players can keep building their collections to sell them at the end of the game. The player with the most Bucks at the end of the game wins!
Going, Going, GONE! is a simple-to-learn, exciting and unique game for players of all skill levels! It is ideal for playing in public spaces. Since the players control the pacing of the game and the variants used, the game adapts to the playing style of the players.
These are audio files created by me for use with Going, Going, Gone and your favorite phone/table/MP3 player so that you do not have to have someone counting down.
There are 3 different countdowns within this zip file:
10 second standard countdown
5 second fast countdown
20 second slow countdown
The voice is my own, altered a bit, with public domain audio sources for the gavel (also altered) and the crowd ambiance. Sources for these sounds are in the meta-data tags for the files.
