It was a little hard to figure out some of the requests in the yard sale sometimes but other then that it was good. I also would have liked to maybe have been able to do each room as I got the $ so that if I hadnt made enough I would have to redo the level over to get a higher score to recieve more $ to spend on the decoration of a room.

This game is lots of fun, with room decorating and hidden object elements. I loved it so much that I played it constantly until I had finished it. Using the hidden objects in a time management setting (you have to find the items the buyers at your yard sales want), is super fun. :)

I enjoyed the game for the 1st 15 minutes of the hour trial but it quickly became monotonous and boring. Matching the garage sale shoppers to the items for sale was at first fun, but seems the majority of the time that's all you're doing. The background music drove me crazy; like department store elevator muzak. The one plus - the game requires a little thought.

While the game was fun, I finished it in less than 2 hours. Wouldn't recommend it for kids under 14. The clues mystified my 10 yo. Also didn't like the fact that you had to do the rooms exactly as the goal stated to win the extra clue.

I enjoyed this game. After finding things for the yard sale (somewhat like HOG, but with a theme rather than a list) you must sell them in your yard sale. The clues for matching buyers to items were clever and cute. Need to be mindful of the power bar under each clue - when you run out of time you will lose your buyer. Clues to decorating to achieve 5 stars were witty and helpful. After finishing the game, room decorating is up to you. I went back and redid all of mine! Recommend this for some laid back fun (HOG) with just the right amount of challenge (yard sales).
I had trouble trying to figure out some of the "shoppers" and what they were supposed to be buying. It was fun decorating the rooms and earning money to decorate them. A different game for a change.

I find this game a lot of fun and very different from other games. It makes you think quickly which makes it very interesting.

I just played the demo for this game and didn't hesitate to use a ticket on it right afterward. It was really fun, and I was bummed when the demo was up. You get a theme, like "baby items" and a certain amount of those items you need to find, then you go into H.O mode and find them. When you find them you then have a yardsale to sell all of those items and you have to match what your customer wants to the item (which get's pretty challenging). And then when you're done with that, you get a certain amount of money and you go back to your house and decorate every room how you want to. There is a certain way the room should be decorated, but that's only if you want extra hints, other than that, you can decorate every room how you want to, and there is a bunch of stuff to choose from to decorate with. All in all, it is a great game. Original and fun. I have played hundreds of games on here and I rarely find one that really catches my interest as this one did. So I highly recommend it. And it would have great replay value as you can decorate it differently every time.
In this game, they don't give you a list of things you're supposed to find. Instead, they give you a "theme" and you're supposed to pick objects to match that theme. My first theme was "home and garden," and the game let me pick up a bird feeder, a hot tub, and a chair, but wouldn't let me pick up a garden hose. (It has the word garden in it, for crying out loud... it's a home and garden item!!!) I think the game has promise, but it could have been executed better. I like the concept of looking around for things to sell at a garage sale, and then using the proceeds to decorate the house. The decorating was kind of fun; you get bonus points if you match the room goal they set out. Some of the rooms they had me decorate turned out really ugly, but you can match the goal, get the bonus hint, and then immediately redecorate it the way you want to. Use the trial before buying this one. I got bored of it quickly.
This I found to be a bit different than the typical HOG game of finding items as your not given a list of items. In this game your are finding items in different rooms but what makes this different is you are given a catagory for example: Kids and babies stuff -so you find all the items in the room related to this and then you have a yard sale and the customers will give you a clue at to what they want which will be on the side of the screen and then you have to take them to the item. Each room also has 5 hints which you have to be careful because those 5 hints are also used for the yard sale and some of the items are difficult to find in my opinion. Then when you do another room you are given 5 hints again. Also after each sale depending on how well you do, the money you make you use to upgrade the home. I wouldn't consider this one of the best I've played I've played but this was fun just because it's a little different than the normal HOG games. I give this 4 stars overall. Thanks Game House.
This is an unusual but fun HOG game that's different from any others I have played. You are putting together themed yard sales from every room in your home (more like a mansion). For example, the first one you do is yard & garden. They put you in a room and it looks like a typical HOG scene, except there is no list. There is only a theme and you look through and find things that match that theme. Occasionally items are broken and require a second item to make them pristine again. For example, a garden hose which is missing the nozzle. You get to find both in the room. When you are all finished collecting all the themed items, you get to run the yard sale. The yard sale is a cute idea. Along the right hand side of your screen you have physical descriptions and hints as to what that person might be looking for. Believe it or not, despite the number of people and smaller resolution, it's pretty easy to tell who they mean. It's a bit harder to direct them to the items they need as they are smaller and harder to see but keep in mind, they are all items you just hunted down in the HOG scene in the room before. You earn money/points for what you successfully manage to sell. There are also occasional mini games. The ones I played during the demo (I ended up buying the game, by the way) give you suggestions for a themed decor of a room and you get to buy all the furnishings and decorate it. The better it fits what you were instructed to do, the more points you get. Your points then translate to clues you can use for the HOG scenes. My only complaint with this game is that it has a feature where if you hover your mouse over items in the HOG scene, it will tell you what it is - well that's definitely a plus but what bugs me is it seems to take a long time for the name to show up. Wish they would speed that part up some - that's my only complaint. This is a great game and highly recommend giving it a try.
This HO game has a mixture of different stages that I really liked. It has a unique way of listing the items to be found but also a section where you have to match the customer with that item. The only part the was truly a let down was the graphics for remodeling the house. I felt that with the thought process used to design this game a better choice of graphics would have been made.

This game was fun and a cute idea, but way too short! Very easy.

had a hard time imagining this game from reading it's description. i'm so glad i downloaded it, tho. the HO part of the game-finding specific items related to very specific themes in different rooms of a house you've inherited-was challenging-some items were broken or missing pieces and u had to find the related pieces, too. the items in the HO part were just hard enuf to find-had to use some hints, but not overwhelmingly. i enjoyed the yard sales after you find the items-each yard sale has pretty much the same people attending it, but it was challenging to figure out what they wanted to buy. the sense of triumph when you were successful-cool...LOVED the decorating part. after you have your yard sale, you get to decorate a room in the house you inherited-you have clues as to what items will be the best for the room-you get rated with stars as to how close you come to the description. it's cool seeing the rooms come to life. you can also change the positions of items as many times as you want, and change the actual items if you so choose. the hour trial FLEW by. you've gotta try this one...
I really liked that along with seek and find they added; selling things at a yard sale and then you do the remodel of a room in the house, getting to choose the things you think they want done, from a room discription. It gives you a three part game to each level. I really enjoyed it and if you like hidden object games along with selling things and then a little interior decorating this is the game for you!

Was fun decorating the rooms but I had a hard time figuring out the shoppers and what they where buying.
PipCat | Added on: August 3, 2010
Interesting concept. It's a HO game without a list of items laid out for you to find. Rather, you're given a theme for your next yard sale and you need to find items that match that theme. Once you've collected enough theme items you sell them at a yard sale and must match what the buyers want with the items you have to sell. It can become a bit tricky trying to figure out which buyer you're looking for from the description and then find the item somewhere in the yard sale. You actually have to pick up the buyer and place him or her in front of the item they're looking for. If you don't match up a buyer with the item they're looking for they leave and you've lost a customer and the money they would have paid. Once the yard sale is completed you then get the opportunity to fix up a room and, if you decorate it according to the room goal, you're rewarded with an extra hint for the next round. It's a timed game, something I'm not awfully thrilled about but in most cases I had more than enough to find the items then sell them at the yard sale. I did, however, lose 3 customers in the last 2 levels. It is kid friendly and there is some good replay value since the items seem to change when you play it again. This one is on my list of potential buys.
I did enjoy the game - I bought it after the demo. However, I finished the main part of the game not long after that! I wish that there were more levels. You can replay, as the objects do change, and it's very kid friendly.

In order to find the hidden object you had to know the topic. Sooo if you didn't know the "70's", it would be a tough find. While I enjoyed the concept, I was disappointed in the decorating choices. With today's graphics this was a flop. I have to agree with others that the game was too short, and offering "replay" doesn't cut it. Broader topic choices and better graphics would have made this a hit.

I quite liked this game, it was different and very relaxing. The game comes in three parts. You basically have to find themed items in rooms then sell them in a yard sell in order to raise money to decorate rooms. When you sell the items you have to find the person that fits the description and then match them to what they want (all cryptic clues). You decorate the rooms based on the descriptions of furniture and colour etc, for which you get stars that become hints in the HO part. The only room that is free-choice is when you get to the basement. The game isn’t that challenging, but it is nice and relaxing. It ends rather suddenly, but there is a teaser as to a sequel. There is one mini game where you have to put themed items into boxes, but that’s it for mini games. The graphics are cute, and items make sense ~ in all a sweet game.
