Product Description

Eccentricity is what makes the world go round. Well, your world anyway.

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 Klaus Teuber, the creator of The Settlers of Catan.

What is it about these simplistic games?
January 23, 2007

Okay look, if you like simplistic games that don't take much thought, get a pen and paper and play tic-tac-toe or use your hands and play rock, paper, scissors. I'm sorry, but in my view if you spend $20+ on a commercially produced game that does little more than put these simple games in a nice box with nice cardboard game pieces you have more money than sense.

I've tried a number of these German style games and every single one (with the exception of Reiner Knizia's Lord of the Rings game) was a waste of money - played once and found too simple or too boring. I really don't see their appeal. This game is no exception. Maybe it's me, but I just don't get any immersion from games like this - the game themes always seem tacked-on. I'm no hardcore 20-page rules fan by any means, but when I spend $20+ on a game I want a bit more complexity than I get from a game like Monopoly.

 
 
 
 
 
Don't believe the reviews
September 06, 2006

I bought this game based on the recommendations from the other reviewers on this site. My group of regular boardgamers gave it a try and we hated it, even before we were even half way through we all had already decided it was going on the 'won't play again' list.

It has been several months since we played it so it is hard to remember the specifics. I think we felt that there were a lot of odd aspects to the rules which felt random and arbitrary. Bascially, the game feels like it is oriented towards kids or for family/casual boardgame players, but the rules are too complex to really appeal to them, while serious boardgamers who won't be put off by the odd rules will find the 'play' less than entertaining.

I am sure there are those who like this game, but there are many games out there so much better than this one.

 
 
 
 
 
Enjoyable Game.
March 10, 2006

though not one of our very very favorites, it is nevertheless a fun game, and something different to play sometimes. the board and graphics are fun. it is just a bit repetitive, which dulls the play a bit, but a fun game to play with people who are not quite as serious, and just want to have some fun.

i think there could be some variations with could help the game, and maybe they will come out with some new versions of rules, or enhancments to buy. who knows.

all in all, a fun game though.
