copying the dice tower and making my own top 10 lists when they do theirs, because I usually disagree with most of their choices (or the positions of their choices)

I disagree with Tom and Eric on the definition of "co-op", in that a hidden traitor game is NOT a co-op to me, it is a HIDDEN TRAITOR game. so, battlestar galactica and the like are excluded

police precinct on this list, then, is played WITHOUT the hidden traitor variant

with all expansions, however, vanilla is quite fun on its own

You are trying to fight a fire and rescue the people before the house colapses

I play with my own customized monster bag with monsters from wizards tower, and all of the dark titan stuff. Also, the wizard cards and wizard tower.

A tower defense game that really makes you work together to survive. you are trying to protect the castle from orcs, monsters, and bosses coming out of the forest on all sides. Very tense

Fantastic game. I have a real soft spot for real time games

Real time, running around a space ship trying to keep it repaired long enough to survive. It reminds me a lot of the computer game "FTL"

Yet another real time game on the list. It does feel like the xcom computer game, but in the macro/management sense, not the tactical combat sense.

interchangeable with escape the curse of the temple, but I own this version, so it made the list and the other did not.

yet another another real time game. Rolling dice to run around the city to collect the supplies you need, put them in the van, get everyone in the van and escape the city before the zombies get you.

This game only makes the list when played with the "in the lab" expansion. That expansion pushes the game of the "meh" edge and makes it into a great game.

also, don't play with open hands. that spoiled my initial opinion of the game, because of the "alpha gamer" problem

you are trying to stop the spread of 4 diseases on a global scale. with in the lab, you have to mix concoctions of germs to find the cure for each disease

have someone teach it to you. The rules are horrific, but the game is fun

your standard dungeon crawl, but no dungeon master. each character has a very unique play style, and each has their own rules which is what makes this game unique

you're trying to investigate and arrest a murderer, but at the same time, you have to keep all the "normal" crimes and street gangs under control

although this game was replaced by "space cadets: dice duel" for me, it's still a great co-op

each player takes up a position on a star ship (like star trek). each station has a mini game that controls some aspect of the ship, and the captain has to coordinate everyone's efforts to complete a mission

I added this as #11 because it is not out yet, and I have not had a chance to play it, but I am REALLY excited about it. It looks like zombicide married escape and this is their child.

another honorable mention of a game I'm excited about, but have not played. This one looks like a great implimentation of the computer game of the same name, and looks a lot like zombicide as well. Between this and project elite, I feel like zombicide will be fired soon after this kickstarter project delivers
