I love when games have a traitor in them. I usually like horror or suspense games. I own betrayal house on the hill and panic station. Any other recommendations?

Re: Trader games
I think you mean "traitor", not trader. A trader is someone who trades.

Games with a traitor mechanism:

Shadows over Camelot
Police Precinct
Dead of Winter: A Crossroads Game and Dead of Winter: The Long Night
and the most obvious one, Traitor Mechanic: The Traitor Mechanic Game

I'm sure others will chime in with others, that's just off the top of my head.

You are Correct, auto-Correct on IPhone. I have seen a lot on shadows over Camelot. I just am not sure if it looks that great. Have you played the game? Is it as good as it is rated?

Re: Trader games
Damn. Came to see 'trader' games. I really liked the computer space trader games like Elite Dangerous and X3. Was hoping to see something along these lines. Oh well. yuk

Horror traders. I quite like the sound of that.

You mean like "3 zombies for 2 Undead"?

Re: Trader games
Then there are the trader-traitor games, where you can agree to a trade, but break your word.

Re: Trader games
My picks for games with a hidden traitor:

Dead of Winter: A Crossroads Game
Dark Moon

Much lighter fare, but good introductory to traitor mechanic:
The Resistance
Saboteur
Secrets

Re: Trader games
For the IPhone keyboard problem : I HIGHLY recommend SwiftKey. You can swipe to type and it's predictive text remembers what you say, so it is more personalized.

For traitor games : Shadows Over Camelot and New Angeles are my favorites!

I have seen lots on Shadows over Camelot. Is it really fun. I was not sure if it was over-rated or is it really that good?

I've played:
Dead of Winter: A Crossroads Game - takes a few hours, but I had lot's of fun
Saboteur - filler/very light. Don't like it too much
Shadows over Camelot - love the theme, had a blast playing it, but maybe quite a lot of small rules to remember
Swords and Bagpipes - highly underrated

Maybe not a real traitorgame but it's unclear to which of the two factions other players: A Study in Emerald (second edition) - briljant game!

edit: added a game

1.Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game - 2-4 hours, best with 5, 217 plays since 2013, get while you can!

Well, that's the best, and the rest are far behind. A few of the other favorites and potential favorites:

A. Room 25 Ultimate - has a traitor mode for 4+ players. Programming, simple to get into due to the other modes.
B. New Angeles - 4-6 players, may have a traitor. Can't say yet if this falls or rises. Gives feels of A Game of Thrones, Cosmic Encounter, and Pandemic.
C. Dead of Winter: A Crossroads Game - played a few times, not our kind of theme, and overly random for us.
D. Shadows over Camelot - classic, but very simplistic after BSG.
E. Homeland: The Game - for playing every once in a while,


(Or just click onto my collection to see our favorites.)

All of those games are ones I own, and I've played the first three. I routine take Shadows Over Camelot to gaming groups and to introduce to new gamers because it is fun and easy to learn. Non-gamers seem to take to it well.

I wouldn't consider The Resistance and Secrets as Traitor games, because there are teams. Hidden role might be a better description for those two and Mascarade.

New Angeles
Archipelago

But I got to tell you these two games are highly dependent on the gamers. These games are very polarizing in my opinion.

I love them but half the people I played with hated these games.

Does New Angeles count as a game about both?

Also, I'm perpetually amused by Traitor Mechanic: The Traitor Mechanic Game

Some PnP games with a traitor:

Deathsville Assassin: cops have to protect the visiting president, but one sides with the assassin.

Laputa: players have to protect a floating base against rebels, but one could decide to join those rebels.


And perhaps this card game may appeal to you: Verräter.
