Winners will advance to the quarter finals to play for the title of US National Champion, with a special prize!
Starting with $49 apiece, players in The Game of 49 bid to buy spaces on the 49-square (7-by-7) game board. Randomly drawn number cards are auctioned one at a time, with the highest bidder placing a chip on the matching board space. 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 payoff maximum of $49. The first player to claim four spaces in a row, in any direction, wins. Players may play in any or all of the 3 preliminary rounds. Winners will advance to the quarter finals to play for the title of U.S. National Champion, with a special prize from Markee Games!
