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!

Light yet clever bidding game, loosely connected to its corporate setting.

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.

Fun bidding game. Plays in about 10 minutes. I liked it better after playing it a few times. Definately worth picking up for the price.

I was surprised how much I liked this auction game. The Japanese version is nicely packaged and comes with cute wooden mice. Will probably buy my own copy eventually.
