This list is a (hopefully) comprehensive list of all the purely cooperative boardgames released up through 2018. It includes some games from 2019 (or later), but as of 2019, it will no longer be "comprehensive".

The list is now sorted alphabetically. To find out if a game is listed, it's easiest to go to that game's BGG page, and click on More/Geeklists. Sort by "Hot", and see if this geeklist is in the list. Or, while viewing this geeklist, you can use the "Titles Only" link, along with your browser's find-in-page feature (Ctrl-F). There are several pages to search through, however.

If you spot an error in an entry, please add a comment for that entry, or send geekmail to me pointing it out.
Here are some types of games NOT included on this list:

- Not yet released
- Traitors or betrayal
- Require DM/GM/Referee
- One vs. Many
- Teams
- Just for kids
- Activities (as opposed to games)
- Games release in 2019 or later may or may not be in the list

Background:

When I started this list back in 2010, there were very few pure co-ops on the market, and a lot of games tagged as being co-ops that really weren't. The existing geeklists of co-ops tended to be small, or included games that were not pure co-ops. Co-ops were a weird little niche in the hobby, and it was kind of difficult to discover new ones. This list seemed like a valuable resource, and I enjoyed maintaining it.

Today, nine years later, cooperative games are fully mainstream. BGG has updated their "co-operative" category definition to exclude semi-cooperative, 1-vs-many, traitor, and team games. So it's useful now.

There are a flood of new co-ops hitting the market every month. As I type this, I am aware of 20+ new co-ops that deserve to be on this list, and I'm probably subscribed to 50 other upcoming games that I would post when they are actually released.

But I just can't keep up, and it has become a burden. So I'm surrendering. I will continue to add a co-op to the list now and then, but I will no longer feel obligated to do so. I have also disabled the ability for others to add games to this list.

EDIT 2012-09-22: Clarified some wording.
EDIT 2014-12-08: Accidentally added a 3-player game.
EDIT 2014-12-28: 3-player games are now included.
EDIT 2019-05-04: Major shift to an editable list, sorted by time added.
EDIT 2019-08-11: Officially surrendered and renamed and re-closed the list.

This is a book containing 10 games, of which apparently 2 are cooperative. It is/was self-published in 1981, so I would be surprised if it were still available, but don't know for sure.

This is a deduction game based on the Agatha Christie mystery novel (known in English as "And then there were none"). Players must figure out which character (not player) is the murderer, before all the victims have been killed.

With 1-3 players, the game is always pure co-op. With more, the rules call for the possibility of a traitor (in any given game, there may or mot be a traitor).

Set in WWII, the players are American pilots who must sink a Japanese aircraft carrier. Enemy planes attack you, and you must succeed before time runs out. Fights are resolved by dice rolls, with the results interpreted like poker hands.

This is a re-implementation of the earlier Sink the Carrier.

Set in the Star Wars universe, players are Jedis trying to liberate planets from the confederation. The rules as written are "either everyone loses, or the player with the most victory points wins", but it seems like it could be played purely cooperatively.

Players are Polish military leaders in WWII, who must command individual soldiers in order to hold back the advances of an overwhelming German army. Play is more like a tower defense game than a traditional wargame.

This "choose-your-own-adventure" style exploration game is one long continuous campaign (~20 hours) through a persistent world, but you can pause and resume at any time. And characters (who have special abilities) can drop in and drop out at almost any time. There is no dice rolling, but challenge resolution uses a push-your-luck system, where you choose how many cards to draw, and succeed if they have enough star symbols. The game has a modular card board with a fixed layout, that you explore bit by bit.

Includes 3 different games in the official rules. Each can be played competitively or cooperatively. All of them use wildfires as the setting, and all have a somewhat abstract/puzzle-like feel.

This is a wooden-tower construction dexterity game. In its cooperative mode, players choose a wooden 3-D "tetris"-style piece, and add it to the tower along with a "balance stone". They try to build the tower as tall as possible.

Modeled after escape rooms in a box, this game instead uses puzzles and storytelling to have the players break into a building and solve a mystery. The story branches based on decisions, and has multiple possible endings. Nothing is destroyed while playing, so the game can be reset and passed along.

Players are shipwrecked and stranded on an island , and must survive until help arrives. Gameplay has players choosing actions during the day (which are resolved with dice), and then consuming resources and facing events each night. The narrative is emphasized over the 5-scenarios, but the characters generally reset between each, and the scenarios can be replayed to experience different cards.

This expansion for Adventure Land adds a pure co-op mode (in addition to other stuff). Players must defeat all the fog monsters before time runs out. As in the base game, players move pawns on the board either rightward or downward, having encounters as they travel toward the city in the bottom right corner of the map.

Set in a fantasy world, the players are "breach mages", who must use gems and spells to open breaches and defeat a nemesis and its minions. Game play is a deckbuilder, with two main twists: 1) your discard pile is never shuffled-it is just flipped over when the draw deck runs out, and 2) turn order (including the enemy) is determined by random card draws. Combat is deterministic.

This re-implementation of the Aeon's End deckbuilder once again has the players as "breach mages", fighting a nemesis. This is a legacy campaign, with narrative and evolving rules. When the campaign is over, the game will be replayable in its final state.

This standalone sequel to Aeon's End can also integrate with that game. It keeps many aspects of the original, but adds new card types, keywords, etc.

Game play is deckbuilding, with two main twists: 1) your discard pile is never shuffled-it is just flipped over when the draw deck runs out, and 2) turn order (including the enemy) is determined by random card draws.

In this party-style game, one player must get the others to guess an emotion, by assembling a sentence from a limited hand of cards. Players take turns doing this, and the group must get enough correct before they get too many misses.

Players: 1 to 3
Length: 30-90 minutes
Status: Published 2017

Players are trying to complete one of 15 missions while surviving zombie attacks. Gameplay is deckbuilding with some twists (like "scouting", "retrieving", and "readying", and using cards). There are 3 characters, each with their own starting deck. The missions form a small 5-part campaign, or can be played independently.
