The Best Co-operative Games
- Tony Ackroyd(1000rpm)United Kingdom
Space Games we have been treated to a pile of great co-op games in the last couple of years. Battlestar Galactica, Pandemic, Red November, Ghost Stories, Space Alert, Last Night on Earth....
This list contains the best Co-operative games I could find on BGG. There seem to be a few main types of Co-ops:
- All vs. the Game
- All vs. One
- All vs. Traitor
I've tried to classify the games in this list. I may have some wrong as I haven't played a lot of these games plus some of them don't neatly fit into one of the above categories. Hopefully it will be a guide for those who don't like all vs. one or games with a traitor. I have excluded straightforward Team vs. Team games.
Feel free to add if you think I have missed a great game
I've added some useful information on game: best number of players, how popular they are (number of plays) and whether they are Free. I've also included a comment (or two) from a fan of the game.
I have sorted them based on a Combined rating. Points are awarded for 3 categories: Rating, Ranking and #Plays. Points are awarded based on where that game comes after sorting all the games on this list by each of those scores. Finally a bonus was awarded for Print n Play games (as they are freely available and free/cheap). Low points are good and the games were then be sorted by their TOTAL points. You'll get the idea.
If any new games are added to the list I will score them relative to the other games on the list and sort them on that basis.
