Quirky App Of The Day: Buy Low And Sell High In Pawn Stars

September 15, 2013

Pawn Stars: The Game (Free) by A&E Television Networks Mobile is a simple game that uses basic math skills to buy items at low prices and sell them at higher rates to make a profit. See? Economics can be fun in the right environment. The customers come into the shop, and your clerk has to estimate the best price to offer the customer. Then, you turn around and sell the items on the shelves, but make sure that you’re turning a profit before you let the item go.

Just like the TV series “Pawn Stars,” customers come into the shop with some weird stuff. I sold a baby gas mask, a vintage waffle iron, and old boxing tickets. The customer makes an offer, and you try to offer them less money.

If you make an offer that’s too low, the customer will get angry and leave. If you buy at a high price, you’ll have a hard time making a profit. You can spend $200 to see exactly what each item is worth, but checking every item that comes into the shop will eat into your profits quickly.

Once you’ve purchased an item, you can put it up on the shelves to sell. By clicking on the item, you can see if the offer made will give you a profit. It’ll even tell you what percentage of a profit you’re making.

What do you do if the item isn’t making a profit? You can let it sit on the shelf until another offer comes around. However, if you bought the item for more than it’s worth, then you might need to take a hit and sell the item without making a profit.

You can use the money you make to buy decorations that enhance the store. Some items bring in customers faster, and others make them happier while they’re there.

There are a lot of in-app purchases that are available. The candy packages range from $0.99 to $99.99. The cash packages range from $1.99 to $99.99. There are also bundles you can buy that include candy, cash, experience, and other cool things. These bundles range from $15.99 to $36.99.

If you like the TV series “Pawn Stars,” then this is a great game. I love games that test your ability to make a profit. This game will definitely prove your thrift skills.

Pawn Stars is a universal app, and it’s available in the App Store for FREE!
