Board Game Snapshot: The Game of 49. Think of this as multi-player Connect 4 auction style board game. The game board has 49 spaces. Players start with $49. Each turn a card is revealed, showing a space on the board. That space goes up for auction, with the person winning the bid placing their color chip on the board. Players can pass on a card and if all players pass, that card is eliminated from the game. Certain cards are wild spaces and have payouts where players receive $7 per chip on the board up to $49. The first person to get 4 in a row wins. If the deck of cards is exhausted, the person with the most chips on the board wins.
