It’s the turn of the century, and it’s time to live large.

As the quintessential bon vivant you must spare no expense following the latest trend and surrounding yourself with the fineries of life that you justly deserve. Assert your status, impress your peers, and avoid at every turn.
In Reiner Knizia’s classic auction game, players must bid against each other for life’s luxuries, while avoiding going bankrupt in the process. High Society features 16 stunning Art Nouveau-inspired illustrations by Medusa Dollmaker.

Publisher Review

"Dice Tower Seal of Approval! If you've never heard of [High Society] it's time to discover this game.... High Society in this new printing is excellent. I would say go out and grab yourself a copy." - The Dice Tower "This game probably elicits the most laughter of any auction game I've ever played." - Drive-Thru Review ." . . the artwork is phenomenal!" - Board Games & Beyond "There's something special about these moments when I get to say this to you, so let me just rejoice in it for a little minute--High Society is really, really good!" - NoPunIncluded "Such a tight, brilliant, short, auction card game. I used to have the previous version and now Osprey have brought it back, they haven't changed any of the rules, but they've delivered this amazing artwork in this lovely small box, and for me it's just a quintessential travel game." - Actualol
