And since it’s not easy to reap on the profits, our Bid Wars Pawn Empire cheats and tips will guide you through all the steps required to get the most out of the game.
The concept is pretty simple here: you attend auctions at various storage houses, estimate the value of the storage room and start bidding against three other buyers, hoping that you get the storage room itself and end up with a bit of profit afterwards. It’s not as easy as it sounds, but it sure is really fun!
There are many things to take into account when playing this game, so let’s not waste a single second and let’s check out below some Bid Wars Pawn Empire tips and tricks in our complete strategy guide below!

Try to learn the prices of the items
Before bidding starts in a room, you have a few seconds to look around and tap the items to estimate the price of that storage room. However, the regular items which make the majority of things you’ll see in a room always have the same price and even the rarer ones have a minimum price.
As you play the game, try to remember these prices in order to easily estimate the value of the room. Usually, my way of dealing with this is to set a maximum bid based on my estimated price plus $100, up to $200 more depending on the number of boxes. It works, usually:
It gets a bit trickier if more than one rare item are in the room: these items can sell for much more than the minimum price, so always keep that in mind and if you think it’s worth the risk, take it. You can’t go to a storage war without being ready to risk a bit.
Finally, knowing the prices of the items helps a lot when dealing with clients who come to sell you their stuff directly: you’ll know how to valuate the items they bring, as it usually happens for them to ask a lot more than what it’s worth.
Rare items usually mean higher profits
As you probably know, these rare items can be researched and, if proven to be the real deal, they can be sold for much more than the indicated price. Considering the fact that you will only sell them in the store for an even higher price based on the offers you get, it means that this is where your big money will come from.
So never hurry to sell an item unless the price you’re getting for it is at least 5% higher, but try to wait until you get a bonus of at least 10%.
Take your time to research items in the college
There is absolutely no point in selling rare and rarer items without researching them in the college. If you do this and they are proven to be genuine (which is usually the case), you will get a lot more money for that particular item, raising your profits even more. Never ignore the college!
Watch video ads to reduce waiting times
You always have to wait for 1 hour for the college research of your item to complete, no matter what’s the rarity. Watching a video ad cuts about 20 or 30 minutes of waiting time and it’s extremely useful when it comes to rushing things – so make sure you do that as often as possible.
Also, you can watch ads to rush the offer time for your in-store items in case you’re in a hurry and you want to free up some inventory space.
Upgrade only when you have enough money left afterwards
Make sure that you buy upgrades only when you have enough money left afterwards to buy all the rooms at your next auction. You don’t want to see a storage room that gives you tons of profit and have no money to buy it.
My approach to upgrading things in Bid Wars Pawn Empire is this: I always buy upgrades (one or two, at most) before taking a break from the game and only when I have a full set of items selling in the shop and one being researched in the college. This way I am sure that I’ll have enough funds to keep on going for the bigger storage rooms out there.
