What is High Society?
It's the turn of the century, and it's time to live large
As the quintessential bon vivant you must spare no expense following the latest trend and surrounding yourself with the fineries of life that you justly deserve. Assert your status, impress your peers, and avoid at every turn. In Reiner Knizia's classic auction game, players must bid against each other for life's luxuries, while avoiding going bankrupt in the process. High Society features 16 stunning Art Nouveau-inspired illustrations by Medusa Dollmaker.
Bid for various trappings of wealth (positive-number and multiplier cards) and avoid its pitfalls (negative number and divisor cards). While bidding, though, keep an eye on your remaining cash – at the end of the game, even though all those positive-number cards might add up to a win, the player with the least money isn't even considered for victory.
