I want to buy some filler games, because most of my friends, are not really into eurogames, so I maid a small list:

Bang! The Bullet!
Bohnanza
Pandemic
Roborally
Sabouter
For Sale
Zooloretto

also Formula D and Snow Tails (but I will get Roborally instead)

They prefer games that takes no longer than 1 hour, for at least 5 players, and without fantasy, magic, witchs' theme, they really don´t like it...

What else would you recommend???

Let me know when you get a Robo Rally game in under an hour. We've never done it.

Excellent filler games:

TransAmerica (or TransEuropa)

6 Nimmt (or its clones)

Royal Turf (or its derivative Winners Circle)

Money

Medici


No Thanks

Turn The Tide

Formula Motor Racing

Apple to Apples

Poison

It's a shame that you specified no fantasy theme otherwise my first thought would be Shadow Hunters which is a very good game that you need at least 5 players to get the best out of.

Other than that Dixit would be a good choice, as would Abandon Ship.

For Sale
Pandemic

Those are two great choices. I wouldn't call Pandemic a "filler," but it can be played in an hour. It also might be a good way to introduce your friends to different types of games.

Trying to stay away from some of the other good suggestions.
Tsuro
No Thanks! though only 5 player

I wiuldn't consider Medici to be a filler though.

By the way, I wouldn't call Pandemic a filler, but it's a great game. I consider a filler something you can play in 30 minutes or less. If you want great games that you can finish in 30-60 minutes, then I recommend:

Pandemic
Dominion
The Hanging Gardens
Kachina (full disclosure: I'm the designer)
Samurai
Dixit
Tongiaki: Journey into the Unknown

For a filler I think coloretto is better than zooloretto.
