I hear that finding this game is really hard. I have one in a original box with all the pieces in great shape. We have had plenty of fun with this game. I remember playing this game with my grandmother. I am looking to share the fun with others by selling my copy I don't know the price of this type of game but I am doing some research. If someone out there can help me please do. Thanks
Dealer's Choice has nothing to do with poker, despite its name. Instead, it deals with used car dealers and the dirty tricks they use to make a profit. The game is long, long out of print, but is worth picking up if you can find it. Put it on your Funagain wish list in case they ever find a copy.
What made the game unique was the way that each of the 24 vehicle cards could be of different values to each player. Players took the parts of used car dealers, and each had a unique Blue Book, a card in a slider sleeve that would show only one car's value at any time. A car with a particular list price could be worth somewhat more than the list, the actual value, somewhat less than list, or even the dreaded Junk.
During the course of the game, players could force other players to see cars, or volunteer to put their own up for sale. If someone thought the seller was asking too much, he could ask to look under the hood. If the seller was bluffing and asking too much, the car would go for a lower price and the seller would have to pay a penalty. Conversely, an honest seller would get the higher price plus a bonus for the insult to his honor.
With various disasters befalling prized cars, and the ability to buy insurance policies to protect them, the game went beyond the simple 'buy and bluff' mechanics. The game was quite satisfying to play.
Pick up this game if you find it. It sure isn't a lemon!
In this game you are a used car dealer. Each player receives a card that slides into a 'blue book' screen. Each car is worth a different amount to each player from junk to a lot of money. Players are dealt action cards that govern what you can do. You can play one or two cards per turn. Cards cover buying a car from the central area, burning or stealing other person's cars or buying insurance to protect them. When buying a car from another person, they can tell the truth or lie about the price based on their blue book. The buyer can challenge the price if they feel the person is lying. The buyer or the seller has to pay a penalty depending on the blue book value. The object of the game is to have the most cash value. Playing time is about an hour. A classic game worth the price.
