I am fortunate to have many game groups to choose from in my area, and decided to start having monthly game days revolving around a specific theme. For the first of these days, the theme was COOPERATIVE GAMES. Only co-ops were invited! I even kind of discouraged "traitor" co-ops.

Fifteen people showed up and at most we had, I believe, four games going at once. Here's what got played.

I was the ghost and felt like I was being a bad ghost, but we ended up winning and even skipping a day!

A cooperative scenario. I don't know the base game and can't comment, but I know it resulted in a loss (though a narrow one).

Apparently the first expedition ended in quick tragic failure, but they then sent another team in and succeeded.

We did a two-floor scenario, and floor one went okay, though Eric got hit by the guard twice. We even pulled two events that didn't end up wrecking us! But it turned out the second floor was absolutely LOUSY with alarms and Eric got nabbed twice more, sending us all to the pokey.

Matt's daughters have been doing some gaming for a while now and the older one is Potter-obsessed, so this has been a regular for them. They came and started a scenario which apparently went very poorly. But I think the girls enjoyed being invited to their first game day!

YOTTSUGO, NOT THE LISTED GAME

Me, Jess, Bryan, Kyle, Katie, Tim

Yottsugo is not in the BGG database, and would possibly be rejected as being more of a puzzle than a game. You're given a set of letter tiles with which to make a 4x4 square with words reading across and down. You can gradually unfold the clue packet to get more clues as to what the words are. We played three times. First two times we needed clues one and two before figuring it out. On the third time we went for a supposedly harder puzzle but solved it with NO CLUES AT ALL. Boo-yah!

Another very popular one. I have not played this and didn't get in on any of these but seeing it played encouraged me to buy the app version after everyone left!

This is another game that Matt's girls enjoy. Usually a competitive game, there's one cooperative scenario, which we played. It's a really neat Kramer and Kiesling design with a lot of possibilities. Very cleverly done. We worked together well and were able to defeat all the fog monsters, saving the kingdom!

I really like Flash Point and was glad Katie brought her copy. We were called to a burning high-rise office building with a lot of problems going on. Initial explosions weakened the structure considerably before we'd even set foot, and we barely got moving before the whole thing collapsed. Unacceptable. We tried again, switching characters up, and this time the situation didn't start as dire. This time we actually managed to save five inhabitants (including the office cat) before the building fell apart on us.
