Best filler ever, and a great intro for non-gamers. Plays in 20 minutes and shows people what they've been missing.

The variable ending can really screw up your plans hilariously, as I've discovered on many occasions. This one always makes me laugh.

My favorite short game, which is playable in 20 minutes. Lighter than Medici/ Modern Art. I love the system of bidding on "bad" cards.

Brilliant bidding game. Fast and very well balanced. You just must play it again and again.

This is a best "filler" that I own. My edition is Einfach Tierisch - which hasn't so good theme than the High Society has BUT the game itself is the same. Rules are very simple, but game has still unique taste: you want to have positive-number and multiplier cards BUT how much you are ready to pay for them? Because at the end of game, if you have least money, then you've lost and somebody else will win. Great bidding game which takes only 10 minutes.

This rating goes for the "Einfach tierisch" version. One of the best auction games.

My favorite opener, and it works especially good when you are waiting for the late players to show up since it plays best with 3.

Thanks to Uberplay for re-releasing this one, with great artwork! Truly one of my favorite games, and one of my Top 3 Knizia offerings. Agonizing decisions provide a very fun experience, and newbies love it.

I have almost certainly played this game more than any other German Game. In many ways it is the best Knizia design of all.

(Einfach tierisch.) A fast, nonlinear little auction game with excruciating decisions. Delicious. Absolutely brilliant.

There are at least two brilliant ideas here: the cards you spend never come back, so you lose flexibility as well as raw purchasing power; and the player with the least money left at the end of the game can't win.

This is my favorite filler. On several occasions, our group has requested repeat plays on the same night, due to the fun we have with it. Every game has a slightly different feel, depending on how the cards are revealed and how many players there are. I love that this game is extremely good with 3, 4 or 5 players.

Nice tense game. Reminds me of poker at the casino tables. Actually this game should be played instead of Poker at the casino. A lot of these games should, but this one would be my first pick. The guessing, the bluffing, the money, it's all there.

Fantastic game, simple enough rules but with a twist in the tail: the person with the least money can't win, which changes everything!

(I own a Uberplay's High Society edition)
Quickplaying auction game and fun to play. I think this is the best light auction game I've played. Games varies a bit in length but are never long. For such a short game this is quite meaty game although there is a lot of luck involved. Knizia's best filler and works well with 3-5 players.

High Society is a bit overproduced but thematically better. Einfach Tierisch on the other hand is (even more) portable.

I have the app version of this game. I am so glad I got my hands on a physical copy of the game! Now that I have the game, I will probably only use the app only if I am in need of a fix! Which will probably be often!

Ingenious game, can't understand why it isn't rated higher. I just got this game, and I've been missing out. The game always has an exciting finish, no two games are the same. I love the heart-pounding reveal of who has the least money, love the anti-bidding on bad cards, love the uncertainty of when the game will end, love the careful planning required because each money card is a different value. So great!

Great filler which isn't dull and empty. A nice light auction game with a couple of interesting twists to keep you playing. Probably one of Knizia's best.
