Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Eccentricity is what makes the world go round. Well, your world anyways. As a member of the pretentious "Antique Club", you feel inexplicably compelled to outshine your other snobby friends. You are oddly convinced it is your destiny to become the antique collector with the most valuable collection - by using any means necessary. Outwit your fellow snobs to become the most "Hoity Toity" of them all. From the creator of "The Settlers of Catan". The games is for 3-6 players and takes about 60 minutes to play.

Product Description

What do bored English noblemen do with their free time? Well, according to this Klaus Teuber Spiel des Jahres (1990) winner, they like collecting old junk and then showing it off. Players buy or steal various pieces of junk in the form of cards, trying to form the largest and oldest collection. Built on a 'rock-paper-scissors' mechanism, this game gives all players a couple of choices each turn. The trick is in guessing what your opponents are likely to do, and planning your choice accordingly -- only after everyone's decision is revealed do you know for certain whether you made the right one. Note: Hoity Toity (Uberplay, 2004) is for 3 to 6 players.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Jenna Conlee on December 18, 2010
I had owned the original German version of this game titled "ader Verphlichtet", […], which allowed for 2-5 players (Germany's game of the year in 1990). My family thoroughly enjoyed this game for years, but the art cards and money (checks) became worn after years of game play. So I sought out obtaining replacement cards, but stumbled upon Hoity Toity, an American reissue version, which allows for 2-6 players (hooray-more can enjoy).
The game is very unique, is somewhat challenging to learn, but addicting to play once you know how.
Players seek to advance around the board, with the winner(s) making it to the ultimate dinner table at the end of the board. Players buy and steal art, exhibit art, and can play a detective to bust thieves. The game has a unique game play, which I feel is best described as a type of "rock-paper-scissors" as you try to outmaneuver your opponents by predicting what you think they are going to do (and what you think you are going to do). While some reviewers might downplay this as random and guessing, I think it actually increases the strategy, and makes it fun for kids as well as adults.
I highly recommend this game.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Aaron L. Shaw on November 9, 2005
This game has lots of player interaction, and is fairly quick to learn. The strategy is a little bit iffy as most of the game is spent guessing what others will decided to do and planning according ly. This is the case for most strategy games, but this one more so. The reason behind this is that you are constantly guessing at random what people will do. It is nearly impossible to predict accurately what the others will do, thus making the luck element high in this game.

Bottom Line: Is it better than settlers? No. there is too much luck in this one. Will ADD gamers like this one? probably. It is fairly fast pace and light. Will I be keeping it? It is already gone.
