Bring out your inner art critic!

Bid it to win it in The Grand Auction game, where players compete to win the highest value collection.

Over the course of several rounds, players will work in teams to decide how much to bid for items that increase in value. Then, they must individually propose a bid for the item, without consulting with their teammates.  After all the proposals are in, players are sent to breakout rooms where they decide which bid to submit to the auction. Bids depend on what other teams are doing, and no two auction games are ever the same.

Will you spend more to ensure you win the round? The highest value collection is the winning team!
