My friend came over last week and we decided to play a little gem called, Going, Going, GONE!. What happened afterward will blow... no.. no it's exactly what you would expect. It was still fun though.
Game is simple, you have 25 bucks in the form of cubes. there are five auction cups, and per every round an auctioneer counts to ten, while holding a large auction paddle (the thing they use to get attention). Players attempt to place their bets in the cups with the intent to get specific cards, but once the time is up the paddle thing slaps down on the cups.
Players are trying to get multiples of origin (country) or types (toys, comics, or cars), the more in a group you have the more you can resell them for later throughout the game.
The game is over when there is no more cards in the deck, and all players automatically must sell their collections. The person with the most money wins.
WHAT DID I LIKE ABOUT THE GAME:
I liked the simplicity, while at the same time increasing the speed at which you must act. there is a lot of strategy to this game though that I have still not learned all of it. I would definitely play it again.
WHAT DID I DISLIKE ABOUT THE GAME:
I didn't win, but that's not the games fault.
WHO IS THIS GAME DESIGNED FOR?
Families, and friends, people who have always wanted to be auctioneers, and people who hate buying things with non cube-like money.
6.3 out of 8. I gave this a lower score, but not an incredibly low score. I liked it, I would play it again. Just give me a couple days to catch my breath from speaking to fast.
Now for something entirely different, for anyone who loves party games, keep in mind our reviewer, and amazing game designer has created an awesome game called Rough: The Card Game that is currently available for free print and play within this site! Check it out.

As a long time avid game player, and lover, I come before you to tell you my complete honest and forward opinion on games. I will bring out the things I like in the game. Point out the things I dislike. And consider who this game would be best targeted at. All of this while also assigning a completely random biased number on a scale of 1-8. Why 8? Because I can!
