We thought we might launch into a longer game, assuming that since Jon hadn't arrived yet then he wouldn't attend. But Jim had to see little James into bed, so the four of us still at the table opted for another quick filler, For Sale.

As quick as this game is, notes are sparse. During the property auctions, we did have one notable round where no one bid, since all the properties were really close in value (16 through 22, or so). We also had one bid where the options were 27, 8, 5, 2, or so, which saw a starting bid of $6,000, to try to get the others to immediately pass (it worked). It ended with a little bidding war where Rich and Carrie were going up and up to get the space station (30), which ended up going to Rich for $8000.

During property sales, for the most part people got the expected value for their properties. Rich sold his space station for $11000, in a round where the other checks on offer were 5, 3, and 2. Dave was able to earn a number of two digit checks (15, 13, 13, 10) so that in spite of getting one of the voided checks for his 4 value property, he still was able to total $59,000, and adding the $1,000 left over from the auctions gave him an endgame total of $60,000, which turned out to be just enough to hold off Alice's $58,000 total and give him the game.
