Hi, i play with a small group of friends, between 4-7 players, and we are just starting out, although we are all veteran gamers, having played dungeons and dragons for over 10 years, and a few of us have played a few boardgames aswell.

Right now we are sorta stuck, we are too heavily into steve jackson i think, and too much is card games;

Frag
Munchkin (+2 expansions)
Chez Geek (+3 or 4 expansions)
Ninja Burger

And i am getting Junta and Ninjaburger expansion in a day or 2. But i am looking for a new game. Junta and Ninja Burger is the style we are after.
It involves:
some luck
some bluffing
some brains
alot of sabotaging the other players.

The sabotaging is the most important part in my oppinion. Nothing gets a laugh like a well thought out plan laid to waste by sabotage
We are trying to avoid munchkin because it has too few sabotage features, and after 6 turns people have stockpiled enough bonuses to become unstoppable. Also we are trying to avoid more card games for the time being, although i am planning to get Hacker at some point.
Are there any more games like that?

It's a card game which you may want to get away from, but I think that Citadels has what you are looking for. Involves a good deal of bluffing and luck. There are card roles of Assassin, Thief, and Warlord that can really ruin an opponents plans.

Cutthroat Caverns -- card game, but should appeal to your players.

Ca$h 'n Gun$ -- for a real change of pace.

Yep, Citadels was the first game that came to mind and is probably the best fit (except it's a card game).

If you need a board game, rather than a card game, then RoboRally, Ys and even Catan might be worth checking out (the second two are a bit of a departure from what you're used to playing).

Saboteur is another card game that might go down well with your group, but you do really need a minimum of five players. The games title says it all!

I was ready to recommend Infernal Contraption+Infernal Contraption 2: Sabotage!, but it only plays up to 4.

Cosmic Encounter would also be good, but it only plays up to 5.

However, I will throw in another vote for Citadels.

Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game says it all. First of all, it's immersive team play. I use the phrase "Strategic Roleplaying on a board(game)". Perfect for roleplayers new to boardgaming. It has a few similarities to Junta, some cards, some co-operation, and hidden sabatoging. It plays 3-6 players, but I imagine playing a seventh character wouldn't upset things much. Just play with 3 cylons and no sympathizers.

Luck equates to card draws. Bluffing "You're a fracking toaster!" "No I'm NOT, you are!" Brains: figuring out who's got access to the sabatoge cards in the skill checks. And who's playing sub-optimal, not because they don't know better, but because they're a Fraccing Skinjob!.

ps. Remind me to put my copies of Hacker/Hacker II up for sale. I just don't get them out anymore. ghs2

See my geeklist for related games. Not all have luck, but they all fit your other criteria.

In addition to the already mentioned Citadels and Roborally, I would add Junta. It plays up to 7 (best with 7 in fact) and is a lot of fun with the right people. With people who don't like to backstab each other though, it can be boring.
