The Game of 49
The Game of 49
Can you get 4 in a row? The Game of 49 is an exciting strategic game where you will need to bid, budget, battle and buy your way to victory. The Game of 49 is great family fun.
Each player starts with $49 and 15 chips and you bid to buy spaces on the 49-square (7-by-7) game board - The first player to claim four spaces in a row, in any direction, wins.
Randomly drawn number cards are auctioned one at a time, with the highest bidder placing a chip on the matching board space. Outbid your opponents for the winning slots on the board and keep them from placing 4 tokens in row.
Bidding high and running out of money? Don’t worry a Payoff card might be the next card drawn. Wild/Payoff cards give players a choice of where to place their chip and also award cash to all players for their chips on the board: $7 per chip, with a maximum payoff of $49.
Be the first to place 4 tokens in a row and win!
