Hi! Blind Bidding is not listed as a separate mechanic on BGG and I'm looking for new-to-me titles for a friend who loves my 2 blind-bidding games.

Can you help me discover some good blind-bidding games?!

Thanks!

I heard this described once as "the blind bidding game for people that hate blind bidding". Regardless, it's a great game, and gets very tense near the end.

There is a card game as well, but I've never played it.

This Knizia classic has several types of auctions, including blind bidding.

By Tom Lehmann of RFTG fame. I've only played it once and that 2P, but it seems like a nice game...

Not exactly blind bidding...and well kind of completely only blind bidding.

Its an abstract euro on a board with multiple characters moving on the board. You put money on different characters -- you may move any character you want but other players may challenge/cancel your moves depending on how much you've put on those characters in previous turns.

It think its a very interesting game and worth checking out. And an easy game to mock up and make your own copy of.

The first half of this game is an open auction, bidding money to acquire properties.

The second half is blind bidding, selling the properties you bought in the first half. A number of money cards are revealed each round, and each player offers up a property card face-down. Highest-value property gets the biggest reward, and so on down.

Great filler.

Blind bidding plays a pivotal role in the under-appreciated Emira, the game of strategic harem acquisition. Blind bidding is used to determine turn order each round, enabling players to increase their desirable attributes, purchase spice caravans, and add palace expansions. An interesting component of the blind bidding is the use of camels, which increases a player's blind bidding amount.

The game has really lots of different mechanics, but blind-bidding is very important phase in this one. You can buy (or miss your chance) great gladiators, slaves and weapons at market, and also blind-bid for being the host at gladiator games in arena.
