As a member of High-Society one aims to live as lavishly as possible. Our jois de vivre must be present for all to see and nothing demonstrates one’s exquisite tastes like the latest objet d’art.
Scandal and faux pas are the bane of the fashionable. One’s reputation can suffer terribly at the hands of these misfortunes. A damaged reputation can be very unfavourable to one’s social standing. And do be careful not to spend everything at once. One cannot be seen to associate with paupers...
High Society is a classic auction game for 3-5 players designed by award winning designer Reiner Knizia.
Each round a desirable item will be available to players to bid for. Competition for these items is fierce. The more you spend now, the fewer the options available later in the game. Some items are less desirable, and these go to the lowest bidder.
The person with the least available cash at the end of the game cannot compete for victory no matter how many desirable items they possess.
Originally published in 1995, High Society has been republished by Osprey Games with high quality over-sized cards and all new, art-nouveau, inspired art illustrations.
