Ok, I have no idea why , but I like this game.

It is part TM and part HOG. There are several modes of play including relaxed. You go to different locations and find items you think will sell. Looking especially for whatever is considered the Hot Item of the moment. You do not have to play the HOG scenes or even finish them . But you can earn extra money and an item for your shop. There are achievements. Quite a few of them . The HOG scenes are a little difficult for some items but again, you don't have to finish the scene. You set pricing for what you want to sell . I am not sure what you would do with the profits as I ran out of time.

This is a very different game. I'm a huge fan of these types of shows, so this game interest me somewhat. I really enjoy the picking/buying/selling of things. But I can see where it would get very repetitious and for that reason, I will wait for DD/COTW prices. But for sure give it a try.

Well, I've played the trial for a while. I can honestly say that I didn't find any negative points. It's a colourful buying and selling game and it ran smoothly and with a filled up screen on my W7 32 bit system with a widescreen monitor.

In spite of the fact that I'm not a TM player, I think the game could have scored higher when the people you're trading with were moving figures. Cuteness adds to the fun of a number of people, including me.

Another thing I liked was the emotion-bar, telling you exactly how far you could go in your trading-bizz with people.

As I said, a good game worth to try and buy.

I'll pass this one though. It's just not my kind of game.

I actually had a good time with this game even though I didn't expect to do so.

It was fun to haggle, it was fun to set the prices, deciding whether or not to consult an expert, deciding to refurbish or not and it was even fun to see what I'd get at auction.

The "picking" part was very entertaining, in that almost all the objects looked like trash but you have to use your imagination a bit to see what they'd dress up to.

This is on my after holiday buy list now,

I gave up after 10 minutes

I will stick with watching repeats of the show

Since I still have 5o minutes left, I will play the 1st position

I had high hopes for this game but nah... offer reasonable prices for things and the sellers just get mad and say forget it. So guess what? That's what I'll do... forget it. NO FUN NO BUY. This is the kind of game where devs need to do some research first... if they don't want to do that then make a different kind of game.

I loved the locations because I like for things to be real. But other than that there wasn't too much else to liked. I want puzzles and hidden object scenes and a plot to a story and some suspense like yesterday's game. I have never cared much for the buying and selling of things. I can't imagine a whole game like that. The only thing I would like to see are all the locations, other than that I just can't imagine why I need to waste my time with this. No buy.

OMIGOSH I LOVE THIS GAME!!! I watch the show every week so I just had to try this. I love that there are different challenges you can play. I did the demo doing the 30 day challenge. Watching the show and those guys go through people's junk, this game is just like it! The developer did a great job staying true to the format. I'm going to definitely buy this but I'm sure my boyfriend will be playing it too since he's an even bigger fan of the show. Very well done developers and thanks BF

PS I just called him at work and told him about this. He's super excited!!!

This game is somewhat like the game Antiques Roadshow, only not nearly as good. The pros of the game is that you have 3 modes to choose from. The con is that the HOG scene is not crisp, but muted, and it's a junk pile, so finding objects not easy. Because of that, it's a no buy for me. It could have been a fun game, but just isn't,

As I write this, only 10 (well, nine, actually) reviews after nine hours? That wouldn't bode well, would it? And for a "Mumbo-Jumbo" game?

Well, I'm an inveterate H0Gster, but something about "Pickers" grabbed me. This is the "one person's trash is another person's treasure" storyline. Rummage around in different locations, make offers, buy stuff, all the while keeping an eye on the seller's emotion bar (as CasualGran noted), return to your shop and price stuff to either sell or auction. Along the way, there are H0 scenes, and 40 keys to find to unlock some type of bonus gameplay.

The Options menu has the good things, and there are no less than four gameplay modes! The first mode is "Relaxed"--no TM constraints. The other three incorporate TM--I tried the second one, a "30-day" thingy--no pressure that I could tell. Graphics are very good; the music track is a bit overbearing. A lady pops in occasionally to offer some advice, but she's not really a "helping hand."

This is a TM/H0/Buy-and-Sell game--it's different, but I like it. Try it!

Regards, elldee

Have played a couple of hours and really enjoying it. Love the autioneer. **** scenes fairly simple, Sellers tend to get cranky easily but you can always go back and buy something you really want. Looking forward to the rest of the game.
ETA - I got censored! Here in OZ that word is associated with Santa!!!!

Yes I just don't get it. It seriously reminds me of an American TV show that a ton of people are nuts about. I posted this to facebook and my friends who love the show are going to try it and hopefully become fishies tomorrow.

As an old barn-sale veteran, I liked looking at the old stuff. Reminded me of the stuff I sifted through looking for my perfect find.

But in a computer game, I prefer brighter clearer graphics. More color, not so many shades of rusty faded...ummm... brown. Just didn't find the graphics (or music) appealing.

Then I had to haggle with each seller. Man, I had them turning red in no time! Guess it's not for me.

I love this game. Bought as soon as the trial was over and I'm starting my second time through. It took about 6 hours to finish the first time and now I want to find all the 2 piece treasures. Plus I want to get all the achievements.

Thumbs up from me!

I am a fervent garage saler but this game did nothing for me. SORRY!

This was a fun game. I like the "upgrade my house, garden, wedding, antique store" type games for something a little different. This one could get very boring after a short time. You don't have anything to do with your money...just buy and sell stuff. Not enough of a challenge, so no buy for me.

I have tried this game, but didn`t like it very much - the graphic is really bad on my laptop and I dislike the storyline. For me its a definete no buy
