My family loves the quick, fun slightly crazy or unique trading/bidding game and I am looking for some new ones. Prefer a card game, but any family friendly game with a fun bidding/trading phase or even if it's the whole game. Prefer shorter -under 30min. Thanks!

Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars, where you will be forced to drift aimlessly farther into the vast, empty abyss of space until a lack of food, water and oxygen causes you to succumb to Death's cold embrace.

Alternatively, if your family has some hang-up over beans, you might consider:

Palazzo

or

For Sale

Not just cards and probably not 30 minutes or less most of the time but you can grab the Game Of 49 at Target now for like $20.

Bohnanza is definitely NOT under 30 minutes, otherwise it would be perfect. Worth considering anyway.
+1 For Sale IS well under 30 minutes and a great simple auction game.

What is the sound of one card shuffling?

Biblios is half card drafting and then half auction (using the cards you drafted to pay for the auction). Really great family filler game.

You can remove a few more high numbered beans and it can be. Clearly detracts from the game as a whole, but still way better than many alternatives.
