    I really didn't think I was going to like this game. The idea of a "Jumble Sale" type HOG didn't appeal, but this game is somehow relaxing and addictive.

    You have inherited a mansion and are selling extra items to make money, which you will use to upgrade the landscaping outside.

    Use money from Hidden Object scenes to restore formal garden. Look for FOUR bonuses in rooms: Gold coins (extra money), ?'s (extra hints), cameras (will show you 5 items in the room that you need to find, just for a few seconds) and thermometers (which show you if you're "hot" or "cold" finding objects). Saved hints = extra $$ for garden.

    I found 4 coins per level, though sometimes they are hidden behind other
    objects, and you can't see them right away.

    There are two modes of play: Timed, which can earn you bonus money, and Relaxed, which of course has no timer.

    I love updating the garden, and Austin, the butler(?), is just too funny. Very fun game Two thumbs up from me.
