It's the turn of the century, and it's time to live large. As the quintessential bon vivant you spare no expense following the latest trend and surrounding yourself with the fineries of life that you justly deserve. All the while, you must elude impropriety, sidestep scandal, and most of all never be caught unable to foot the bill!
Reiner Knizia's classic auction game returns in a new edition from Osprey Games! Players must out-bid one another in an effort to acquire the social status to surpass their peers, whilst avoiding scandals which will ruin their reputation. The player who achieves the highest status without going broke will be crowned the winner!
