I was hoping to find some games in the "acting" / strategy overlap. By acting, I mean a lot of verbal negotiation, but not just bargaining for prices. Resistance and Werewolf are more what I mean by acting. It's been a long time since I've played, but I remember Junta being an example of the intersection I'm looking for. There is a lot of making deals with players and making shifting alliances, but also interesting strategic decisions on when to try to overthrow, when to go to the bank, etc. Intrigue is another game in that genre, though lighter on the strategy than what I'd like. While the "acting" in intrigue is essentially all about prices, it's a more free-form in the sorts of deals you can make (or break), than something like modern art where you're just saying a price. Furthermore, there tend to be more emotional arguments and flattery than just saying two wheat for a sheep. Battlestar galactica might be another example, though a lot of it is about the traitor mechanic, and I'm less interested in games that center around that mechanic.

Thanks

I think it's better to ask in the recommendation forums.

There's an old classic Hoax if you can find it.
And apparently a somewhat similar new game (which I've not played) Coup.

Hi all:

If you see a thread that you feel would receive a better response please flag it as 'wrong forum' but don't tell the OP.

Telling the OP often results in double-posting.

Just incase folks don't know it is very easy for admins to move thread. Deleting threads is more difficult.

Anyway I'm going to lock this thread and I'll direct responces to this link:

Games in the strategy / acting overlap

Thanks
