Lately I've been trying to find cooperative Print and Play games. There aren't as many. But there are many solitary games, and I've found that some of them have rules to play cooperatively. For example Escape of the Dead Minigame and Delve: The Dice Game. What other solitary games have solid rules to play cooperatively?

I consider this a solo game with some good two player action mixed it.

This might work - a tactical hex-and-counter game. Play with however many characters you like, controlled individually or collectively. Not PnP, though.

Split the 8 man squad into two groups of 4 each with a leader. I played this one in college solo and loved it. I recently played with my son this way - it was a blast reliving the old memories. Great game.

There are two divisions split down the middle. Command one each. Works very well.

This game started as a solo PnP. The new Valley Games published edition has cooperative rules that work really well.

The expansion D-Day Dice: Atlantikwall even has rules for head-to-head play.

This is a very nice looking PnP solo game that also has co-op rules. Its both exploration and pick up & deliver. Its fairly short and I like the theme. I have not tried the co-op version so I cannot speak to how good it is to play cooperatively.

Here are a couple of Solo PnP geeklists you could peruse for some other ideas.

12. Board Game: Horror Island [Average Rating:3.25 Unranked]

This was an entry in the Solitaire Print and Play contest. All components are on the BGG Entry page. It is 100% co-operative so it is playable Solo or with a group. My favorite mechanic is the press-your-luck aspect, you use your hand for movement but you also use your hand to protect yourself from attacks... so if you use up too many cards and get attacked you will be unable to defend yourself and you will die. On the plus side, there are a limited number of replacement villagers to use if one of your guys dies off.

Description:
This game attempts to capture the feel of a Horror Movie in a Board Game. Players start off as survivors of an airplane crash, they know that something is wrong but not what. They must first leave the safety of the abandoned village and collect clues from other island locations. Once they have collected enough clues a Horror themed Goal is revealed that usually requires gathering certain objects and bringing them to a given location (eg. To escape from the island you must take the motor from the docks and repair it in the workshop, and return with the keys and gasoline to escape).

As the players move about the island they will come under attack from the Peril Deck. The hand of cards each player holds represents the energy they have to escape from the attacks, attacks chip away at your hand (the Action Deck also represents how much daylight is left). If you ever run out of cards in your hand after an attack you die... but the player can always return to the village to grab another survivor to wander off to find out what is going on.

The game contains a few horror themed cards including "I know what to do", "it's now or never", and my favorite for twist endings "It's not what you think" all balanced to bring a horror movie to your tabletop in about half-an-hour.

Invasion Z is a Zombie Survival Game. The story is about an outbreak of Zombie-like creatures after a Meteor disintegrates in the atmosphere raining a strange color into Buenos Aires City. This rain causes the population to get sick and then die, only to become the dreaded ghouls that crave for the flesh.

The game is cooperative and can be played with 1 to 4 players in 3 difficulty modes:

- easy
- normal
- difficult
