To be honest, I think that list may be too long to make... Just off the top of my head:
Castles of mad King Ludwig
Small City
The Gallerist

Thanks but those lists are pretty old and not really updated.

Did you want to differentiate between:
- games like Ticket to Ride and Akrotiri where each player has different, secret goals
- games like Suburbia and The Princes of Florence where each player has secret bonus scoring criteria
?

Personally I feel like these are pretty different, though some games do overlap. (Lords of Waterdeep?)

I don't see much difference between the two.

Really looking with more games that have hidden scoring objectives and things to aim for and give you focus through the game.

Russian Railroads - however, you don't start with them. You acquire them during the game.

Panamax - start with one and may get more during the game.

Egizia - start with one and may get more during the game.

+1 to Argent. With the expansion this game has sooo much replayability.



Merchants and Marauders is another good one albeit a bit on the long side.

Also Railways of the World, CO2, Legacy the Testament of Duke De Crecy or however you spell it

Archipelago has hidden objectives, the difference is though at the end of the game when they are revealed they apply to all players.
