The Game of 49

Starting with $49 apiece, players compete to occupy 4 spaces in a row on the 7-by-7 (49-square) game board. Players, in turn, draw and auction a number card, with the highest bidder for the card placing a chip on the corresponding board space. Wild/Payoff cards give the winning bidder a choice of where to place a chip, and award cash to all players for their chips on the board--the more chips, the bigger the payoff. Outbid and outmaneuver opponents--without overspending--to win.
