#41: For Sale

Stefan Dorra created a deceptively simple classic with 40 cards & 75 chips... it takes two basic mechanics (auction & blind selection) and whips them into an extraordinarily satisfying gaming experience. (For Sale is back in print, thanks to Uberplay - however, there are rules & deck composition changes from the beloved original edition.)

Pat Korner: "The king of fillers. Fast, fun, with just enough to think about to make things interesting. It's difficult to compare a filler card game with meatier main events, but For Sale holds its own quite well."

Ben Baldanza: "Best 15-minute value in gaming."

Maybe the best filler game ever designed. The original rules seem to be best, but maybe the Uberplay ones will grow on me.

As a fellow I used to game with said, this game has a very high "gaming density" - by which he meant amount of game to time it takes to play. I happen to think he's right!
