I have a copy of Intrige, and yes, it's a free-for-all. Basically, the idea is to offer bribes, which the other player can take (and do nothing for you!) but there's a lot of tit-for-tat. Like most negotiations, the idea is to keep enough credibility to let you make the next deal.
If someone wants to play it, I'll bring it out. I bought it when I was in Germany in 1994.
