Going, Going, GONE! will be published by Stronghold Games in October 2013. I was the sole designer of the game and wrote the rules (available here). This is a game about auctions designed to get people as excited as they get during a live auction. The game was also designed as a game to be played in public spaces to draw other people over - it is loud, active, and easy to explain.
In each round of the game, players are bidding on items by tossing their own Bucks (colored cubes) into cups affiliated with the item. There are five auctions happening simultaneously. One player holds an auction paddle and counts from 10-1 at the steady pace of his or her choosing. At the end of the count, the player covers the containers with the paddle, thus stopping the bidding. Whoever bid the most in each cup wins that item. Collections of similar items (based upon country of origin or type of item) can be sold to earn more Bucks.
Going, Going, GONE! has recieved a Major Fun award, has been reviewed in GAMES magazine, was nominated for the 2013 Golden Geek award for best party game, and has been featured on Shut Up and Sit Down, The Dice Tower, Undead Viking, Drive Thru Review, Board Games Everybody Should..., and the Game Boy Geek.
