I am a wargamer, but I also love non-war political intrigue games. I'm talking of games where the objective is to control a government from the inside by guile and deception. I only own and have played 3 such games. I'd love to know more about others.

Maybe the best purely political game I've ever played. Plus you get to practice your fake Russian accent. I own it.

Great fun, and get to practice your fake Spanish accent. I own it, but my copy is pretty worn out.

Oh, man, those rules are a mess. But so many neat things can happen in the game. Just think 3 Musketeers! I own it, and boy is my copy beat up.

Saw it played once at a convention. Always wanted to play but never got to.

Don't know much about this one, but it looks like it should belong on this list.

Tough negotiating and in-fighting to ascend in the Roman senatorial ranks.

An upcoming FFG release. Sounds like Republic of Rome Lite.

As close as a 2 player game can come to representing political intrigue. Weird abstract mechanics, but fun to play.
