Republic of Rome was a game before it's time. It's partly cooperative but also competitive. It has the glue of binding agreements that makes diplomatic games more strategic than the rampant back-stabbing of games like Diplomacy and Medici.
It is famously long, but that's partly because it's normally started in the early Republic. I propose a game beginning with the middle Republic setup so you get to see the Gracchi, Marius and Sulla and a real chance of a general marching on Rome in full rebellion against the Senate.
I've played it FtF about a half dozen times and the same again online. I'll bring some of the latest cheat-sheet player aids.
NB - I have the original AH box, not the latest reprint box shown above.

Game facilitator: David Roe
Min players: 5
Max players: 6
Player types: Any from total beginners upwards.
Duration: Half-day If we don't have an emperor after 5 hrs, we'll call it then on most combined influence.
Table space: a 4x4 should be plenty.

Probably the meanest game on my list. The rules could use streamlining and the is definitely on the "play with experienced players" list, but the stories that come out of this are definitely worth this dropping just one slot from #21.

This is an "old school" design, regarded as a classic in many quarters.

The Republic of Rome simulates the politics of the Roman Senate during the republic. You represent one of the great families: competing for state offices, military command, economic concessions and new adherents. Innovative in it's design, it is a semi-cooperative game in that - while you vie for power - all players must ensure that Rome itself doesn't fall, or the game will end in a loss for everyone. There is no "traitor mechanic", it isn't a cooperative game either: you will have to co-operate to overcome the various threats that the game sends against Rome (wars, famine, unrest, bankruptcy) whilst working to build your own Senators' and Generals' positions and undermine that of their opponents. As the game's timeframe spans generations, your family will experience the death of its leaders - through assassinations or through plague.

IF the Republic survives its endless wars, you must try to navigate the other factions to rise above. Its impossible. But, try it.

My nomination for foundational cooperative/conflict game where players jostle for primacy but lose if they fail to work together.

LOVE the theme. And those who love the game have the highest praise for it.
Unfortunately it is far to convoluted for my taste.

So this one is different. About your game tastes? How do they compare to your fellow Long Division GCLers?

Create a poll that list your 10 favorite games of all time, with the following columns.
"I love it"
"I would play"
"I am not fond of this one"
"I hate it"
"I don't know it/never played it, but I want to try it"
"I don't know it/never played it, and I don't care about it"

Over time, I would be curious what are the game among us that really stands out, and which ones, you are really the only one to like....

PS: no judging laugh might

Bugs in the comments, I ll copy the poll items here
