Is For Sale any good with just 3 players?

We tried it with 3 a couple of times but decided it really wasn't as good as with 4 or more.

Seems to work fine with three. That is mostly how we play it.

it's playable with 3, ideally you would have more though. it's one of the best fillers on the market, you'll get your money's worth...so i would def add it to your collection.

I think it's great with 3. Really, it's very good with any number from 3 to 6.

I have this game but haven't played it yet. It seems like a good portable game for travelling and I was contemplating taking it on an upcoming trip with my wife and son. I will likely do so now, so thanks for the thoughts.

For Sale never disappoints, in my experience. It's great with 3.

I enjoy it with 4, but didn't feel a significant drop off to 3 players. I'd definitely agree to get it for 3 players.

I find this a more-the-merrier game, yet it's still good with just 3. The rules say remove 6 houses, reducing the game to 24 houses (8 rounds). There are actually two ways to do this: random or known. I prefer random, but people who can count cards prefer known. Some people miss this rule and play 10 rounds, in which case there isn't quite enough money in play. Ten rounds and $22 per player works nicely. Some play 10 rounds and $28 per player (all the money).

Remember that the game is about two things: Probability and psychology. It's tempting to think that with smart players this is all math, but the human element is always important. The counter think element is just as important with 3 players. With only 3, the results of an error can be even more brutal.devil I saw the 27 take a void check. soblue
