Point values are based upon what the auctioneer thinks is valuable (2 is the least valuable and 10 is the most valuable). Only the auctioneer knows the point values.

3) The auctioneer asks a starting bid, then waits until all teams finish bidding.
*For example: The pencil is the first item and it sold for $100.

4) The auctioneer reveals the second item and bidding begins. Continue until all 5 items are sold.

5) The auctioneer reveals the point values for each item. Count points for each team to decide the winner.
