A lot of people ask for coop game recommendations. I'm sure we BGGers can help them out, so please add any coops you know of. There can't be more than a dozen or so, so this should be pretty easy.

Now, I'm not sure why so many people ask about coops. I guess maybe Agricola got a lot of interest in farming going?

1. Board Game: Agricola [Average Rating:8.13 Overall Rank:6]

I'm guessing Agricola is responsible for the demand for coop games. Obviously, Agricola is not a coop game. Its only got one coop, and that's just a minor improvement that will rarely come up. It doesn't even have chicken meeples. But it deserves a nod for getting people interested in coops in games.

Agricola inspired some great coops like Fowl Play. Unfortunately, since I've never seen it come up in coop recommendations, I think its been overlooked. Probably people mistake it for a murder mystery game instead.

I've never played this, but as one of the definitive chicken games, it surely must have coops in it.

For those wanting a light coop game, Pick Picknic is an excellent choice. It only has one coop, but its pretty central to the game. It does have five other assorted bird dwellings, but that may not be enough for coop purists.

The coops in Loopin' Louie are often mistaken for barns. This is clearly incorrect. Chickens sit on coops, not barns.

Silly dexterity game, but its a good coop game anyway.

Martian dice is supposed to be a coop game, but for some reason the coops didn't make it into the English rules, possibly due to space limitations.

In the correct rules, a block of 4 chicken dice is a "chicken coop" and scores a bonus. This rule should get spread around more - it would make a lot of coop fans happy!

This is all about coups.

I think that I have the French edition. I'm sure everyone knows that coup is just one of those fancy french words, and is how they spell 'coop'. (You know how those french like to go off and stick different letters in words.) Don't let the spelling fool you, its pronounced just like the regular american word.

One of my all-time favorites and a hit even with "non-gamer gamers". It can be explained in under 5 minutes and if you have a couple of experienced players, let them go first and explain as you go. Guarenteed that the new player will understand most of it before it's their turn.

This one is technically only half co-op. Another hit with "non-gamer gamers" (Abreviation = NGG, interesting) the only difficulty with new players is if they happen to become the traitor. Suggested that if that happens, you choose an experienced player to be traitor.

I must admit that I was not aware of this use of the word, I might have written "coop" instead of "co-op" in a couple of places.

On the other hand, I am often confused when seeing coop games, too, because there's a Swiss supermarket chain called ... "coop", and they don't often publish games about themselves...

This one may seem a bit obscure; not mainstream like the other games on this list. However, in CB Lingo, a truck weigh station is known as a "Chicken Coop".
