This mechanic requires you to place a bid, usually monetary, on items in an auction of goods in order to enhance your position in the game. These goods allow players future actions or improve a position. The auction consists of taking turns placing bids on a given item until one winner is established, allowing the winner to take control of the item being bid on. Usually there is a game rule that helps drop the price of the items being bid on if no players are interested in the item at its current price.
Play occurs upon a modular board that is composed of multiple pieces, often tiles or cards. In many games, board placement is randomized, leading to different possibilities for strategy and exploration.Some games in this category have multiple boards which are not used simultaneously, preserving table space. Unused boards remain out of play until they are required.
if you want a heavier pickup and deliver game, this might float your boat, but beware of vague card powers that are hard to parse with no help from the rulebook
English. Some dishing in box lid, crease in box lid in a corner. Rule book has some wear and creases. Components are otherwise in excellent condition.
I did well at this game but probably more from lucky selections and taking non-majority paths. Ultimately found the game overly complicated for what it was.
