Top Cooperative Game for Board

0 Comments


Co-op games are still one of my favorite board game genres. They allow me to play a game with friends and family and compete together against the board instead of against each other. It’s a great way to develop teamwork and problem solving skills while having fun playing a game together at the same time.

1. Freedom: The Metro

Freedom: The Subway weaves together historical events and people, both good and bad, in a strategic game that involves moving slaves north while trying to avoid slave hunters. The effect of the game has not decreased over time. I still find the game tense and I still feel guilty when I make the decision to sacrifice a group of slaves for the sake of other. That said, his lack of replay value has affected the way he ranks in my top 10. It’s one of only two games on the list that doesn’t include an expansion to breathe new life into the game. I will say this: This is a game that everyone should experience at least once because of its unique theme and its possible impact on you.

2. The cooperative card game Dresden Files

If you’ve read The Dresden Files, a multi-volume story about a private detective who is also a magician, play this game! If not, read the series and then play this game! The main Dresden Files set includes the first five books. You can mix and match the character as you wish by recreating the book or creating hypothetical scenarios using character that are not present in the original text. The game uses a destiny pool to get resources: you pay Destiny to play a card or discard it to add destiny back to the pool. It’s this balancing act, combined with his fast playing time, that really attracted me to this game.

3. Guardians of the Multiverse

This is not my co-op game anymore. Maybe the app version messed me up by offering all the fun without the complicated token tracking. Maybe it was my terrible experience with the Kickstarter for their final expansion. Maybe it was so many newer co-op designs. Whatever it is, I don’t enjoy Sentinels of the Multiverse as much as I did in 2015. I still love the interactions between the different heroes, villains and environments and the replay value they provide. I also like playing this game and I would still recommend it; however, it is no longer the cream of the crop.
