My girlfriend is not a gamer....but she's got an evil streek...On the rare occasion that we do play, she loves to really "stick-it-to-me!!" Many of the games on the "girlfriend/wife" geeklists, like Carcassonne, are just way too friendly and just seem to bore her. So with that said, I'm trying to get my girl (who I adore) into gaming by appealing to her dark-side. ***Remember, she's not into overly complicated games...ASL and Starfleet Battles need not apply.

Please help by adding games your think might draw her in....To quote my girl.."Bwah..ha ha ahahh!!"

Nothing loving about this cup! Every play is an opportunity to stick it to your opponent.

(Got this one right, too.)

A great little card game, with enough backstabbing and distruction that she should be looking for. Funny weapons, decent game play, and pretty fun.

... and if she has a true "evil streek," then this game should be great. What is more evil than teenage girls trying to steal lunch money? There isn't anything more vengeful than a bunch of teenage girls.

if you can get more ppl to play, this game might be right up your alley. it's all about screwing the other person. so if your girl likes to backstab, and do it to many ppl too, this game is great.

This is a game of induced, calculated chaos. You get to destroy your opponent's carefully-constructed empire by crafting diabolical moves that scatter his ships all over the board. And... no dice!

I've never tried it with just two people, though. But here's an article with advice on how to go about it:

This game plays nicely with two, scales well, and definitely there is room for aggressive play. Also, it is just darn pretty to look at as you play it.

If you can find a copy try Survive! esp. the 1982 Parker Brothers version... the collectable effects tiles allow for a great screw-over factor.
This has been an effective gateway game for two girlfriends and a host of roomies and every game a flurry of affectionate expletives over the constant betrayal and back-stabbery.

If you're looking for a nasty 2 player game, this is it. My girlfriend and I play this one and it always ends up in destruction. Nothing is as fun as watching your girlfriend work so hard to build up her temples, then in one turn, tear them all down. Great fun, give it a shot.

Another one of wife's favorites, so much so that a few people refuse to play it with her anymore. She doesn't play to win, instead her goal is to make sure the person she has granted PTS (preferred Target Status) finishes behind her. Luckily I'm not always the target

this game is seriously passive aggressive. each player politely builds their route, and the entire game can go without any interaction, two people never need to cross trails. However, blocking your opponents routes can be an advantage, and it can be done with a flair of unknowing, which caters to the passive aggressive type.
