Hello!

I need your help

Me and a couple of friends started playing boardgames recently and i was wondering if you guys know any board game where you have a secret identity and have a target to murder.

Like the game Bang! or the PC mod "The Ship" for half life where you have and everyone else has a target to murder but the other players are unnaware of whom will be murdering them.

NOIR: Deductive Mystery Game does something like that.
With more than 2 players we had fun with the "spy tag" mode. You have to find who the other spies are and catch them. The caught spy discards his/her identity and draws a new one. The first player that catches say 3 spies, wins.
There are other, more complex, modes for more than 2, but I have not tried those yet.

NOTE: you should get the "black box edition", the older one is 2 players only, and has not enough cards. I think.

You can take a look at Tragedy Looper.

It is a deduction game, 1 Master Mind against max. 3 Protagonists. Those 3 have to prevent a tragedy (most times a murder). Characters in play have a hidden role and occasionally incidents happen with tragic results.

Android is a loose detective tracking a murderer game but I don't think one player portrays a murderer.
Would traitor mechanics be a grey area murderer type of thing? Games like Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game or Shadows over Camelot have a traitor mechanic.
Or you could just go straight up Psycho Raiders and have a bloodbath.

10' to Kill is a game that has been crowdfunded just recently, though not yet shipped, and that is exactly about that: each player has a killer and three targets.
Once the game hits stores shelves (if it ever does), you should have a look, it looks pretty fun.

In Lifeboat, you don't have to murder your secret target, but you get points if they die... and someone else in the lifeboat will get points if they live. We simply can't have that.
