I'm looking for a new coop game. I already have Pandemic, Flash Point Fire Rescue, Forbidden Island, Forbidden Desert and Escape The Curse Of The Temple. What are some other good coops that aren't crazy expensive in price I could pick up for my gaming group?

Arkham Horror ... a bit of a longer coop, but can get for around $40 (or maybe less elsewhere)

Agents of Smersh ... this currently, is one of my favorite coops, just because it can be so funny. You’re all playing spys (almost cheesy James Bond older movie type spys) and trying to stop the main villain, Doctor Lobo. I think that game you can get for like $55

Castle Panic... in it’s $20s ... is a quick light coop game ... really good for families or new gamers ... although my husband and I still really enjoy it as a filler game.

Conquest of Planet Earth ... can be played coop or competitive ... I have only played it coop ... but you all choose your own race of aliens to play and work together to try and conquer earth. I think $30 or 35

The Dungeons and Dragons board games (Dungeons & Dragons: Castle Ravenloft Board Game Dungeons & Dragons: The Legend of Drizzt Board Game Dungeons & Dragons: Wrath of Ashardalon Board Gameare a bit more expensive in the $40s and up to $60s ... But a nice dungeon crawl game where you’re building the dungeon as you go ... it comes with a book of scenarios that tells you what you’re trying to accomplish and how to start setting up the dungeon.

Elder Sign ... coop that in the $20s ... Dice rolling game in the Arkham Horror universe ... much shorter of a game then Arkham Horror.

Ghost Stories ... in it’s 30s ... You’re all playing monks with a special ability and pretty much fighting wave after wave of ghosts. It’s a difficult game, but you have three levels of difficulty which is nice.

Senteninels of the Multiverse ... around $25 or so ... Card game where you’re all playing super heroes trying to take down a villain that you choose and in an environment. The game ranks all the villains, which is nice because some of the difficult ones are really difficult. The expansions aren’t all that expensive if you want to get them ... but I’d start with the base to see if you enjoy it.

A Touch of Evil ... around $40 ... this is another game that you can play either cooperative or competitive. Basically you’re trying to find items to help you defeat which ever boss you’re fighting and trying to find out which town elders will help you and which ones are evil.

I don’t know what your price point is ... and these prices are close to what they are on cool stuff ... but at a gaming store, or other sites, prices may vary.

I didn’t give too much detail and there are tons more ... but if you look up any of these and are interested and want to know more about them, feel free to ask as I own all of those and enjoy them.

Lots of good ones already mentioned above but I'd add Mice and Mystics & Defenders of the Realm to the top of the list ..

I'd also recommend Arkham Horror and Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island.

Also Yggdrasil which is more streamlined than the 2 above, with none of the rules queries.

The original edition of Lord of the Rings (not the Silverline edition currently in print) and all the expansions is an older game but still good The original version often appears on ebay.

Yes, to the list of coop games, some people have also listed a few co-op games. It's not a definitive list of either. From the context I assumed the OP here wanted co-op game recommendations, not good quality but inexpensive (chicken) coops

+1 To Robinson Crusoe

Do you have the On the Brink expansion to Pandemic? This should breath new life into Pandemic if you are tired of it.

Also check out the under-appreciated Legends of Andor. Dungeon crawling with a Euro feel.

A good "coop" game may be Chicken Caesar, but I guess that's not what you're looking for. For what it's worth, I also recommend Space Alert and Legends of Andor because they're awesome.

Check out Alien Uprising, which is being kickstarted right now. It's by the same designer as several games already mentioned. Also, Dark Darker Darkest looks awesome, but it may be a bit pricey, and it isn't out until next month.

+1 Sentinels of the Multiverse - Difficulty scales great, if you find it's too easy, or you have 4 or 5 players, pick out a harder villain to play against. The only bad thing is if you're a completionist - I've wound up getting everything except the special promos for this game, because we like it that much.

+1 for Sentinels of the Multiverse.

I can almost guarantee that you will eventually buy the expansions after a few plays though. They definitely aren't needed as the base game has TONS of game sessions in it, but everyone who I've taught it to has gone on to buy their own copies and eventually all the expansions.

+1 for Defenders of the Realm

Similar (very similar) to Pandemic but with a fantasy theme, if that's what you are into. My group prefers it to Pandemic but to each their own.

Pathfinder Adventure Card Game: Rise of the Runelords – Base Set

My group is LOVING this game right now, but it is new so take it with a grain of salt. It's worth watching some gameplay videos however. I really like the Crit Happens one on Youtube.

Arkham Horror

Some love it, some hate it. My group is in the former. Some groups find it a little clunky, or has a long set up time. My group plays it enough that the clunkiness melts away, and since we all take part in setting up we start playing in no time. I'd recommend learning it from someone else before buying your own copy.

Hanabi is a nice re-released co-op card game that won the Spiel des Jahres, and as a card game should be relatively cheap for 2-5 players.

+1 for Legends of Andor. Some people dont like it because it is a fantasy game with battling monsters where beating up every monster is a very bad move. Instead, you have to look out that you only kill the monsters you absolutely need to kill. It has a great (if cliched) narrative, is absolutely gorgeous to look at and needs careful planning. It is also rather replayable.

Hanabi is a nice coop filler; I find that it is a good way to start the evening, before playing heavier games.
