Auction training game


Does anyone know of an auction-style training game that I could adapt to use as part of financial training? It's really to save me time designing an auction catalogue, bidding paddles, etc., and to have the rules of an auction written down. Any ideas of a starting point? Many thanks in advance.

    Not specifically a ‘training game’ but the classic auction game played for fun – Modern Art. Essentially you bid to buy works of art, and to sell them. Your objective is to make the art you own more valuable than the art others own. It’s fun but allows you to play with all the complex maths and psychology required to win in a rational group. You can still win by instinct against maths graduates, if you can get them to over analyse what they’re doing. There’s a few reviews here:
