You play the role of a cranky old man trying to make a few bucks by selling his stuff at a garage sale. For each item, there will be three people vying for its purchase. Each person will offer a different amount of money. Count up the coins and click on the person who offers the best deal (the most money). Your skills will be put to the test and you will earn ten points if you choose the best deal one point if you choose the second best deal, and you will lose ten points for choosing the worst deal. Have fun and sell lots of junk!
