OK, let's see...

Zahltag is one of the few contract bidding games out there - and the best of the ones I've played. A very clever game from Delonge.

Deeku is a very interesting game from the designer of Inotaizu. It might not stand out as much as that game, but it's quite good in its own right.

Eric already mentioned Sloop. I like it better as Sloop.

Hotel Life is a classic - but still very playable and enjoyable.

I was extremely happy to add Halali to my collection this month. I actually played twice this month. Like many Jean du Poel games, the game you want to play isn't entirely the game described in the rules - but the premise is great.

Glad to hear Topfrosch's co-design Hilko is recovering. Still enjoying the game, Hilko!

Die Schlacht der Dinosaurier - oddly enough, _everyone_ else in the game recorded their plays. Greatly fun.

Savanna Trick, Keystone, Nostalgia, and Tricks & Deserts - Apparently, I'm getting to the Trick Taking Box 2015 faster than others...

So ein Zirkus - a very clever and cute family game.

Additions thanks to Jeroen...

Sextet - simply missed this. It's great fun.

Zahlen-Mobile - this one I'd checked, but misinterpreted Jeroen's play data. (We - did something odd so as to play with five.) This was one of my favorite random discoveries at the Essen fair I went to.

One thing I've not seen done often is contract bidding - i.e., an auction where the low bid wins, but then has to do something to fulfill the contract. I've only played a couple of games with the mechanism, and this is the stronger of the two. (The other is Low Bidder: a Game of Management Strategy.)

Thriftshop.

A year ago we went to this shop, but it was closed because it was burned down. This year we went back to see if it was rebuild. And it was.
Not many games....this was the only one. Since it looked nice enough and wanted to buy something in this shop i took it with me for 3 euro.

You can play this "off the cuff" - or you can concentrate & blow your opponents off the table in this game of low-ball construction job bidding.

You bid on government contracts, so it's the low bidder that wins, and receives payment in the amount bid.

If you tie for low bid, you share the contract for a lesser amount, so it's possible to lose money.

What is the chance this game will make my next "top N games" list? 5%

What is the chance this game will still be in my collection when I make my next "top N games" list? 85%

I'd like to find a more interesting game that involves contract bidding, but frankly this game covers the subject pretty well, and Delonge did create a very playable game.

Another hidden gem, massive fun. I love the graphics, the timing, the unique under-bidding mechanism. Lots of chits, that's a consideration.

I've realized that the last two times I taught this game, I've taught one rule wrong. Sadly, it's an important rule. The player with the least workers in hand does not pay ANYTHING on pay day... whoops. (Let's try it again with the right rule.)

Every designer has his cardgame, and this is Delonge's. Not much press around here on this game, and not a high rank. There are some positive comments about it though.
