A great game in a tiny package - fun you can play in under 15 minutes! Have the semi-colored version.

I've tried a handful of Cheapass games now and this is by far my favorite. The "maturity" mechanic works great, the rules are straightforward, there is plenty of interaction with the auctions, and the dice rolls are alway exciting. Just landed on my "want to buy" list-it won't break the bank!

What can I say? Given the price related to the amount of times this has been played and enjoyed, I would have to say that it is one of the best games that I own. It is very simple to pick up and explain, and soon you will be bidding viciously against friends and family to secure those projects! A killer game!

Comment based on Italian edition by Red Glove. Very nice components with all necessary colored chits to play, one of the best light game good for families with children.

Fun and fast little auction game.

I HIGHLY recommend playing that when rolling for the payout, roll ALL dice of sides equal to or less than the number shown on the card. The payout is the maximum value rolled on any die. For example, if a 12 project completes, roll the d12 d10 d8 d6 d4 and d2.

This provides some really neat probability distributions. Most importantly, it makes it significantly harder to only get $1 from a 20 project!

OLD COMMENT: I play with a variant that a card of value N scores 0.5 * N + dN (where dN is a roll of an N-sided die) and 60 points wins. That reduces the hurt of a bad roll for a good card. It also means that the winner may be determined before the game plays out, but then we get to start the next game!

The game is certainly worth more than the $3 it costs. Kids have a chance at this-the game rewards bidders who jump in. Well worth having as a quick filler.

Maybe the best game in the Cheapass catalogue, at that price.
Great game design, a lot of cool ideas for a game that fits in your pocket (but you need dice, pawns and other stuff at hand...).

I like the core mechanism, and it plays quickly. There is some short term tactics in exhausting your opponents of chips when a bigger card might turn up, but there is not any long term strategy. So rounds of the game can feel a bit repetitive.

An underrated game it would seem from it's score. Allocate your worker mice to different projects in this resource management game. Balance out the need to dominate a project so as to get the most out of it with putting all your eggs in one basket. Surprisingly fun and with some depth for replayability. Another part of that big big Cheepass order way back.

It is better to have all your workers on projects than to hold them in reserve. Workers who aren't working are not earning you any points.

チーパスのお気に入りのゲームの一つ。なぜか、チーパスのダイスゲームは肌にあうのが不思議。手持ちのリソースと、将来のでかいプロジェクトを天秤にかけて今をどうするのかを判断する。そんなことはなかなか分からないが、そこに賭けてみたくなる。また、プロジェクトをやっと手に入れても、ダイスの目次第で地獄に落ちる。そんなダイスゲームの面白さも素直に味わえる良品。P&P版のモノクロの絵は非常に味があって素敵。なかなか、プレイする機会がないのが残念だ。
