I was looking at everyone new favorite got to have game "Struggle of Empires" and I noticed one VERY disturbing line..."This means you do not have the backstabbing of Diplomacy to worry about" What kind of fun is THIS?? Since I'm also sick of the "play nice" Euro games, here is a list of a few games you can
1) backstab (because it's fun)
2) Kill something (becasue it's fun)

This may well be my favorite game of all times...It's got backstabbing, killing, and greed...I don't think you can win a game of this with out a little dirty dealing. Also, it seems to be historically acurate in the subject of Latin American politics...

Ahh, the game where everyone loves to hate france...of course the good old stabbing of the backs may be less straitforward here, but there are several things you can do to mess with your enamies...remember, alliances are made to be broken...

OK, we used to play a version of this in college called Asshole..it was well, mainly a drinking game, so even if you lost, you really won. (see the killing involved here is braincells) Anyway, this is probibly the only game I have ever played where cheating was encouraged...So I would routinely steal all the trump out of the deck, this usually means that the president will not keep thier position, and since I have all the trump, I win..of course when they found ouot I was made to drink more...darn...

(P.S. This is now the A#1 coolest picture on BGG)

ok, now I'm off topic and rambeling, so I'm stopping this list before I add Risk...

This is a love it or hate it type of game... in which you kill things... It's a game best appreciated by people who have played RPGs at some time during their life... those people will appreciate the humor in the cards much more than people who have not played an RPG before.

This is a game where you can backstab your neighbors very well... but you really don't have to if you don't want to... but it's best if you do, cause you won't win the game without backstabbing someone.

You have to kill others in order to win. Which ones depends on your secret identity and goals, but you can ptretend to be something else... to backstab your neightbour and kill him unexpectedly!

"Will you PLEASE let my little brother have that piddling little job at your estate?"

"Sure, but it will cost you."

"Anything! Here, take my money"

"OK, I take your payment, but I'm firing your bro' tomorrow. Ha!"

Nepotism and Backstabbing at it's finest. Play this game only with the full knowledge that you may never talk to one of your opponents again!

Never make a large profit on the first 3-4 deals.

I can't count the number of times that I've played this game and somebody finishes the last 3 deals with all of their money up on the table saying "See, I'm really NOT winning anymore. Stop cutting me out!"

Surprised this one isn't on yet. The only reason *I* am putting it on is because I got to be the betrayer on our second game. The haunt happened pretty early on and once I saw my new objective I was pretty sure I was going to win <insert evil laugh here>
And in all fairness, especially since 2 of the 4 other players post here, as I stated it was an early haunt and not many stats were upped nor items drawn. That didn't help the heroes too much.

In our first game, my sweetie was the betrayer. We heroes never had a chance on that one. His stats were way too high and he had many of the items we needed. So it was pretty easy for him to win.

Trias involves backstabbing on nearly every turn in order to gain an advantage on an island. Drowning and blocking other dinos are pretty much essential if you want to do well!

Citadels up above is the best backstabbing game I own. Mr. Faidutti's Queen's Necklace isn't too far behind. The ability to play the King or to rearrange the favorite gems can be downright scandalous. I just finished playing the game tonight. I detailed in an article on the game page how my daughter with Down Syndrome drove the blade in and twisted it. When we play Citadels, she likes to be the Assassin so she can whack her brother. Sometimes she misses him and whacks me instead.

Please ignore my gom jabbar sticking in your neck, dear ally.

I once played this as the sisters. I chose my player, joined his alliance as soon as possible, pushed them to win on the turn I wanted. After all the rejoicing and rubbing it in the other players' faces that 'we' won, I kindly informed my two allies that I actually won alone.
