Hey,

I am looking at

Robinson crusoe: Adventure on curse island
Lords of waterdeep
Pandemic
Arkham horror

Games I have and loved in the past

Talisman(with expansions)
Axis & Allies
Settlers of catan


What am I looking for?

Something with a high replay-ability
With either co-op or against each-other
Would be cool if there was one where you secretly worked against everyone else.

Anyways I left a list of games I was highly interested in please let me know what you think or if you have another suggestion?

You know what else would be a cool game? Something like phantom cops and robbers. Where there was a criminal amongst you secretly working against everyone setting up bombs in a town or robbing stores and none of you knew who it was? ha ha?

Thank You!

In Shadows Over Camelot there is a possibility of a traitor who is working against everyone else. It is a co-op game (except if you're the traitor, of course!)

There's a game called Police Precinct, which is a cooperative police game where you try and solve a murder while taking care of other crimes, like gangs, car crashes, bar fights, etc. Optionally there is a crooked cop traitor option, who makes the calls worse, makes investigations worse. Might be worth looking into for you.

Or Shadows over Camelot, if you like the fantasy theme. All knights of the round table trying to complete the famous quests like finding the grail, with one or two maybe working for morgan lefay.
Both great games.

Also Shadows over Camelot is a great recommendation I believe everyone mentioned so far.

Games you should also take a look at are:

Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game
Archipelago
Betrayal at House on the Hill
Cosmic Encounter

All of those games have the players work together but with the twist of either hidden traitors or special victory conditions with a twist. With the exception of Cosmic Encounter which is just outright fun and chaos with constant change of alliances...

Saboteur has this hidden saboteur thing. It's a rather light game, though.

apart from that, Imperial 2030 is a game you should have a look at.

Robinson Crusoe is between printings right now so it is expensive I also want that one but am waiting on it. I don't own Pandemic but I have played it and it is fun, brutal but fun. Finally I own both Lords of Waterdeep and Arkham Horror, both are great. I really love Arkham Horror. Other games I own and love include Belfort, The Castles of Burgundy and Keyflower.

Other recommendations, well it looks like others have already mentioned games of the type you are looking for. Welcome and good luck!!

For some reason I keep thinking about Scotland Yard. Police chasing a bad guy through a map of London. The bad guy can use different modes of transport to avoid the police. Been a long time since I played it but I thought it was fun.
