Hola, need to tighten this up some. An 8-player game to solve what problem, or set of conditions? As written, you're looking for everything from Advanced Civilization to Texas Hold'em. A good question shouldn't have an endless number of answers. Including a number of potential answers in your question makes this look more suited to a forum than stackexchange.
Does the 6 player question satisfy these criteria? If it does and I'm doing something wrong please help! My second try got closed as a duplicate of the first, even though I'd tried to improve things. :(
