The other games I remember playing here are the EPYC games, and a programming game unreality ran where people wrote subroutines to play rock-paper-scissors against other peoples' subroutines within a program he wrote (which would obviously have a narrower audience than a game that doesn't need programming). And I remember Prof T posting a game idea on MM called Resistance that's mafia-like but doesn't have players being killed off as the game progresses. And there's always mafia. Any others you can think of?
