Game mechanics/Auction & Bidding
Jump to navigation Jump to search
Auction and Bidding are mechanisms used in board game design. The player have the opportunity to bid for items, usually with money. This can be done in a number of ways:
- Japanese auction Players take it in turns to bid for the item. Once a player pass on a bid, they may not re-enter the auction. Example: Power Grid
- First-price sealed-bid auction Players decide what their bid is to be and then all reveal simultaneously. Example: AufRUHR!
