You can have two sided cards, with one side with closed boxes and hints of furniture and other big ticket items. Once a unit is bought, you flip the card to see what the unit is worth.

A secondary game mechanic is getting the right appraiser afterward.

Of course, I can see some screw-your-buddy bid raising and dumping happening in the game, coupled with the cost of hauling goods and other overhead draining your cash.


Reminds me of the card game For Sale.

O.M.G. My wife and I just started watching Storage Wars about 2 weeks ago. I love Barry. My wife says "I want you to be as hip as Barry when you're that age."

Hi, I don't mean to shill but my name is Eddie Rodriguez of Nightstalker Games and I designed a storage auction game last year called Auction Junktion. Perhaps you may find that of interest.

Here's what a Storage Wars game should have:

Limited/asymmetrical info on what is being auctioned--like Felicity: The Cat in the Sack
Different valued set collection, so one player may want to collect a bundle with red, another player with blue--like Byzanz or Medici
Asymmetrical amounts of starting money for each player--like ???

It seems like every game ends up being a storage war I struggle with!
