Priceless is a highly original, wonderfully rich game full of rare and fabulous objects waiting to be acquired through careful selection, shrewd purchases and sharp trading. It involves huge sums of money, passionate collecting, artful deception and much, much more.
You start with nine blank checks of little worth. As you acquire prized possessions, you can cash each remaining check for more and more money. The value of each possession depends entirely on how it "fits" together with others that you may already own. Chances are that the objects you'll want most are desired by your opponents as well, so the competition can be fierce.
So what you buy, when you buy it, and how you convince your rivals to let you buy it, are what make Priceless so unique.
This game is one of a kind. If you're cutthroat in Monopoly this game is right up your alley. My husband hates board games, but can't get enough of it!! 2-4 players keeps you limited, but it is possible to play with teams. Hours upon hours of fun, and when the game is over you'll want to play again.
My friends and I love Priceless. I have to disagree with the first reviewer. We find it a lot of fun, and very challenging. Maybe it would be transparent to a math whiz, but to us it has a really mindbending money dynamic. You get eight blank checks, and their worth depends on the size of your collection. Every time you spend one, the value of the remaining checks increases. So you have to grow your collection while making sure, all the time, that you don't run out of checks! The thing we like about it is that we are always surprised at the outcome, and none of us has been able to come up with a foolproof strategy. Plus, there's a fun element of psychology; sometimes the game has been won or lost during the auctions, because you can lure someone into overspending by getting in a bidding war with them. I highly reccommend this game to people who like challenging and competitive games.
I picked this game up on a whim and have been fascinated with it ever since. The rest of my gaming crowd don't care for it much but I love it.
The components are well-made (except for the blank checks which really should have been larger.) The game is most fun with 3 or 4 players. The object is to end the game with the most money. Your starting funds are small but careful acquisition of collectibles will increase the value of your blank checks. The game gets particularly lively when two or more players all need the same object for their collections ...
