The best negotiation games 🤝 2022

Looking for a really good negotiation game 🤝? Then we have just the thing: our list of the best negotiation games 2022.

What are negotiation games?

Negotiation games involve and explicitly encourage making deals and alliances with other players, and encouraging underhanded actions when necessary. Without participating in these deals, wins are rare. Unlike cooperative games, negotiation games are still largely competitive, with players given specific times to reach mutual agreements through discussion.

Bribery also present as an element

Negotiation also includes bribery, as used in Santiago or in Power$truggle. In these situations, the negotiation takes the form of a bare-bones offer that can be accepted or rejected.
