This is a list devoted to the games where several players "gang" up against one player... By this, I mean you have one player trying to outwit, outsmart, or outreason three, four or five other players.

Take the examples I put on here and put any others that you can think of on here to help the list.

Same as Scotland Yard, but a different setting... Played this as Mr. X... and it was a lot harder than I ever thought it would be... really enjoyed the challenge though.

Betrayal at the House on the Hill... At first this is a mostly cooperative game... until the haunting... then it's the heroes against the traitor... And on both games I've played the traitor won... and I was never the traitor.

The Fury of Dracula

It is somehow comparable to Scotland Yard, as one player will take the role of Dracula while up to three players take the role of the vampire hunters. Dracula secretaly makes his moves on a separate board leaving nasty events and creatures behind which serve the hunters as hint to the position of Dracula.
This game involves a battle system for fights between the hunters and Dracula and his creatures and servants. The game is full of theme and fun!

Nothing prevents France allying with other powers, but if it happens for any length of time, the play balance is gone.

A German player against a British, a Russian and an American one.
The Pacific game should be the same with a Japanese instead than a German, isn't it?

This game is a blast! One player is the evil Nepharites while the rest of the players represent giant corporations with squads of personel at their disposal. The scenarios have modular game boards and players gain experience over repeated playings to purchase new equipment, weaponry and abilities.

If you can still find a copy - BUY IT!

Players take the role of warrior, wizard, elf or dwarf, each with their own special abilities, and have to work together to defeat the forces of evil, controlled by one other player. The lonely evil player does not strife for the elimination of the other players, but tries to create a fun experience.

Since we had Fortress America entered twice, it seems only fair to mention its spiritual predecessor, Invasion America. Invasion America works fairly well as a solitaire game, which is fortunate, because I have only ever been able to play a live opponent at this three times. I am still trying to get someone to play Objective: Moscow face to face.

One player controling legions of hell, and rest players controll marines. Player who is alone, is a some kind of Game Master, but when game is balanced, he can play versus opponents.
