These are the games that I have played that lead to the inevitable pointing of the fingers exclaiming "I'm not the leader, he/she is". Thoughts/suggestion/additions welcome.

Probably my all time favorite. Yes, it takes a long time to play and the rules could be written a little better, but I can't think of a better example of, "how could you hit me with that when he/she is doing this" Amazingly, my wife and I still talk to each other after playing this time and time again, despite the time she beat me by $1 after 3 epochs in a classic. :-)

How much do you attack each other while Rome is under threat? I've only played this one a handful of times, but am always willing to play again.

I've heard some complaints that the fun is sucked out when players select tiles to block others. Since my group plays to win "honorably", the daggers are saved for the stock market and train purchases. This is nasty enough.

An oldie, but a goodie. I haven't played since stabbing someone in the back, but not taking them all the way out. Haven't stopped feeling guilty about it since. Really, it's just that I haven't been able to round up 6 others for such a long game.

This one I think is pretty underrated. Who wouldn't enjoy the opportunity to send your opponents to do a scientific study of the climate in Siberia? "Of course they went there to get their degree at Siberia U., Comrade!

I know, I know... my first non-AH game. Maybe not as cutthroat as the others on my list, but how many times have you been in, or have been thought to be, in the lead and people stop trading with you? And then, trade with the person you are convinced is going to win because they are helping them? I thought so.
