Blind bidding is an auction mechanism where some or all information about the players' bids is hidden. Most games employing blind bidding use the sealed auction (single bid, single prize) or silent auction (simultaneous bids on multiple prizes) formats, but with visibility of bid markers.

List inspired by this discussion, in which recommendations are sought:

A silent auction variant that adds bluffing into the mix. A bid is made up of multiple markers of hidden value, and spells may be cast to move markers around.

Precursor to Aladdin's Dragons, with similar mechanics.

This popular filler has two auction phases: an English auction for property cards, then a sealed auction in which property cards are used to bid for cheques.

Like the blind bidding portion of For Sale, but with a few twists (like prizes you don't want to win).

One of the many auction types in Modern Art is a vanilla sealed auction.

This Bruno Faidutti card game uses a mixture of open and hidden bids, in a proportion that changes from round to round.

Using open and blind bidding similar to Corruption, the players bid for turn order, gems, and (most interestingly) to set the value of said gems.

Game number 4 in the BBG database involves blind bidding on lots of coloured blocks. Unused blocks form the Pyramid of Doom.

Sealed auction for control of a magical wall of flame with which to roast one's opponent. As per Aladdin's Dragons, spell cards can affect bidding.

This obscure Knizia game is a rare example of a sealed second-price auction (i.e. the winner pays the runner-up's bid rather than his or her own).

This game is all about the blind bidding. In fact, sometimes players don't even know what they're bidding on!

I think the bidding mechanic in Shipwrecked is great, as sometimes it can take as much skill to 'not win' an auction you don't want as it is to win one you do want.

A quirky take on the blind bidding mechanism. Players simultaneously bid for sets of cards on the table, but they may also take others' bids. You're faced with a tricky decision as to whether the cards in your hand are worth more to you than the cards on the table or the cards that others might lay down.

Land Unter is related to the family of blind bidding games. Players simultaneously reveal cards in an effort either to win -- or not to win -- the "water level" cards on the table. It does not use a traditional bidding mechanism, however: players can only "bid" with a single card from their hand. To my mind, this places the game about halfway between a blind bidding game and a trick-taking game.

When two players choose the same action in Lowenherz, there is blind bidding to determine who gets to take that action.
