Dollar Auction Game - The New Social Media Generation

A dollar bill is auctioned with these two rules: 1. (As in any auction) the dollar bill goes to the highest bidder, who pays whatever the high bid was. Each new bid has to be higher than the current high bid, and the game ends when there is no new bid within a specified time limit. 2. (Unlike at Sotheby’s!) the second-highest bidder also has to pay the amount of his last bid – and gets nothing in return. You really don’t want to be the second-highest bidder. The current "bidding fee auction method" is not compatible with "team play feature", and therefore not compatible with social media. We fix this historic game and make it legitimate again.

None of the currently running bidding sites are compatible with social media: (current Bidding Fee Auction method is not compatible with bidding group formation)

Team play: It is strictly forbidden to bid in the same auction with your family members, friends, or acquaintances. Any attempts at this type of collusion may make other bidders feel like they're not bidding on a level playing field.
