From the Manufacturer
One man's castle is another man's cardboard box. or maybe his RV, tree house, igloo or skyscraper. In this fast-paced game of bidding and bluffing to get the highest-ranking properties, it isn't how much you pay for the properties; it's how much you sell them for. All players try to purchase the most valuable properties for the least amount of money and them "flip" them (turn around and sell those properties) for the highest-valued Currency Cards. Whoever has earned the most money at the end of the game wins.

You get to learn a bit about people's playing style and while there is an element of luck to the game, a lot of it is based on your skill and reading how the other players will act.
The gist of the game is in round one, you have piles of cash and you are bidding for properties - in round two, you sell the properties to the bank, and at the end of the game count up how much cash you have.
You want to big carefully so you get the most bang for your buck, and hopefully your competitors overpay.
The cards are well made with fun illustrations.
Games are quick 10-30 minutes each depending on how much you and your friends like to talk while you are playing.
One thing to note is that while it is a card game, due to the small pieces and multiple rounds and keeping track of things, I would be hesitant to take this game out on travel and in your backpack. I prefer to sit around a proper table and play where you can "hide" your cards, your cash, etc more easily.
I would recommend the game to anyone as the gaming mechanic of bidding for houses in the first phase is very easy to pick up and a lot of fun. Same goes for the second phase in which all players secretly determine which house they want to sell and then all players reveal the house they pick at the same time to see who's house sold for the most money.
Great fun all around! Buy it, I highly recommend it!
There's not much to this game at all but it does play in about 15 minutes and presents players with a couple of decisions to make. My plays with this game so far have both been with 3 and I've heard and can see how this would be more interesting with the full complement of 6.
The components are pretty well made and are attractive to boot. The colors and the art style were eye-catching from a distance, and the box insert holds all of the components well. With that said, the group didn't seem to enjoy the game our first time around. Jen (my other half), who doesn't sit in on our gaming sessions all that often, found the game to be boring. She began picking cards willy-nilly at one point, which pretty much spelled the end to game night. She even made the comment: "I'd rather tie my shoes twenty times in a row rather than play this game again." Ouch.
What I found odd is that she enjoys "Lost Cities"...so it's not like she an anti-gamer by any means of the definition. I'm proud (and sort of ashamed) to admit that she's put more hours into the video game "Dragon Age" than I have. So I have to ask myself, what happened? For one, she doesn't like to think too much in the games she plays...she likes action, to put it simply. Dice rolling and simple move mechanics like those found in "Lost Cities", "Sorry", and "Trouble" are more attractive to her. I of course, don't blame her for being this way...every person has a right to like what they like, end of story.
There is a bit of strategy involved in this game, one that requires you to pay attention to what cards have been played and what cards you're currently bidding on. I found the game to be ingenious at what it does, but it may not appeal to everyone. Everyone in the group needs to be onboard with the strategy and bidding mechanics...and as proven by our first play session, one dissatisfied player can make or break the experience. Personally, I found the game to be fun to play...simple and quick for an experienced gamer. If I can find the right group of folks to play it with, I have a feeling I'd enjoy bringing it out of my closet more than I do.
In the end, I do recommend giving "For Sale" a shot...but it's important to consider the type of people you plan on playing with. If they don't mind thinking a little, bidding on cards, and reading other players' tells, then this may very well be a big hit in your household. It requires three or more players, but is friendly enough for kids of most ages. "For Sale" is a solid card game and would serve as an excellent filler on game nights.
I was introduced to this game by my gaming group and we play 2-3 rounds of this game almost every time we get together. It's practically our warm up game.
