Great fast-paced card game.

Example with 6-player---2 are spies.

round 1: two people are chosen to go on mission. If one is spy, they can fail the mission.
round 2: three go.
round 3: 3 go..I think

Players take turn choosing the people who will go...selected people are then voted on by the group.
You do this for five rounds and spies win if they sabotage 3 missions.

Great fast one for about $20.

Great saboteur board game. Traitor may or may not be part of the game.

This one is my favorite. However, it is a long game. If you haven't watched the series...do so now you toaster!

This is a nice "filler" traitor game. The players are miners, trying to find the gold - except the saboteur(s) are trying to prevent them from finding the gold.

Plays up to 10.

If you can forgive me this shameless act of self-promotion...
Panic Station is a fast-playing intense co-operative game with a unique exponential traitor system. The game starts with a team in full-co-op mode, but during the first turns one of the team members will get infected and will act as a traitor, trying to pull the other team members to his side.
The game uses hidden-information-mechanics and 10 minutes in the game nobody trusts nobody. If you are looking for an intense paranoia trip that plays in 40 minutes and has some tactical planning, this is the game for you. Sadly, the game will be released at Essen, so you have to wait a few months I'm afraid before it hits the shops.

This is a two-player only traitor game I am currently playtesting, that I have developed as part of the Games on Half a Checkerboard Series. I was drawn to doing a 2 player only traitor game due to my understanding there aren't any designed specifically for 2 players. I am of a preference as a designer now to want to explore new areas, rather than refine established concepts. In this game, both players may actually be traitors, or there may be none. It is essential that a 2 player game NOT always have a single traitor, because it is fairly obvious and stupid if this is the case.

In seeing this list, I see that there are some traitor games that accompany 2 players, so maybe this work isn't as needed now. Still I wanted to explore the concept.

I would recommend people check out Traitor Jenga variant under Jenga, if interested in traitor mechanic applied to a dexterity game.
