The game is played in two phases. First, you bid on sets of four houses. Each player can either raise the bid to stay in the running for the highest property or bail, get half their money back and take the current lowest card. In this way you build up a set of houses ready to sell and make money.
You play four Cheque cards face up on the table and each player choses one of their house cards in an effort to get the biggest cheque. The player with the highest value property takes the highest cheque with others take cheques in order. You repeat this until all the houses are sold.
The result is a game where you push-your-luck to get the best property cards available. Then, you need to bluff other players by playing property that's high enough for the available cheques but that saves your best houses for the rounds with the highest cheques.
The first time you play it can help to do the following:
- Play a round with open hands.
- Play one property bidding round to practice.
- Play one property selling round to practice.
Play Time: This game will take between 25 minutes and half an hour to complete.
