Reels and Deals is a light card game for 2-5 players from Agman Games, a sggc*. They sent me a copy of the game, which I will review on my blog in the near future.

You make movies using rules that start off sounding remarkably like Traumfabrik, but in the end there’s not too much overlap other than theme and some basic goals. You play scripts, and then try to populate them with directors, star actors, regular actors, and effects. But you manage money by playing or tossing cards and producing movies, and you have lots of special ability cards to play either on yourself or your opponents. The auctions, which are not central to the game play, are blind bidding.

It seems to be more of a money and hand management game than an auction game.
