A game that is not for beginners but is absolutely awesome for strategic gamers is Dune (1979). Up to 6 players and is best with 5 or 6 players - great theme, amazing gameplay and is balanced despite being asymmetrical. Has area control, card management, card auctions, a great combat system, alliances with different rules, this thing has it all. Decades ahead of its time in terms of mechanics. It will take 2-4 hours to play.
Dune is a great game - one of my favourites.

It's been out of print for decades. Fantasy Flight recently re-themed the game into the Twilight Imperium universe (they couldn't or wouldn't use the Dune IP). It's called "Rex".

I highly recommend Rex, it's still in my top 10 despite having played sooooooo many games, and it's still exciting to pull out! I don't get people who can't play Rex because it's reskinned as Dune, it's still a lot of fun. Every game I've played has been very loud with cheers and sounds of 'oooooooh' with all the betrayals.

I would add my support for Eminent domain, Archipelago is also good, and I have several recent KS games on the way, I got my copy of Xia the other week and boy I urge anyone to get a copy when it hits the shelf!!!
