A short while ago I was looking to replicate the numbers on Race for the Galaxy cards, and found that they were of a form of the font Mittelschrift. Since spending a while looking at it, I've noticed a lot of games (and things in real life) using that font. Here are some that I've found. I know there are plenty more out there, so if you see something, get to adding.

The numbers for the cost/VPs of Race for the Galaxy worlds and developments are in Mittelschrift... mainly. The 1s seem to be modified to add the horizontal line on the bottom, but otherwise it seems identical. Call me geeky, but I love the "4" that the font has.

This, of course, also includes the Race for the Galaxy expansions.

This classic's title is written in Mittelschrift, at least in the English version. Other languages seem to have similar fonts, but not quite the real deal.

Most of the text in the rulebook, cards, and player aids seems to be in Mittelschrift. It may be an offshoot of Mittelschrift, as the numbers don't seem quite right, even though the text seems pretty spot-on.

In this oldie, the letters appear to be a rounded version of Mittelschrift.

The titular cubes appear to have the letters in Mittelschrift as well.

Much like Cross-Cubes, these dice have the letters printed in Mittleschrifty goodness.

This style of letter cube seems to be quite popular.
