Besides the new and popular Space Cadets: Dice duel, is there any good team based games out there.

My group is not that much for pure competetive games but enjoy the coops, team based games seems like it would be very fitting for my group.

And compared to Space Cadets: Dice duel, im looking for a more calm and strategic game where players can discuss tacticts with the other team in the room.

Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars, where you will be forced to drift aimlessly farther into the vast, empty abyss of space until a lack of food, water and oxygen causes you to succumb to Death's cold embrace.

Small World has just released a 6 player, 3 vs 3 board, so there's plenty of group work in that if you want there to be, and a great fun game underneath it.

May I advise Tichu ? It's a very good team with 4 players with teams of 2 each.

1775:Rebellion is what you're looking for! Strategic but light, and rewarding for both teams. The dice are super fun, too. In fact, my wife dislikes combat in games, generally, but still really enjoyed this one. And we've another player in our group that dislikes area control, but still enjoyed this a lot, too. If you've got 5 players, the game 1812 is pretty much the same game but is 3-on-2.

    Rush 'n Crush isn't billed as a team game but it is (and a good one when played that way -- read some of the forum posts). World of Warcraft: The Boardgame, Wings of Glory, Heroscape is great with kids and adults in a team format. Seriously, if you want team gaming, take out the trash.

Mage Wars Arena plays pretty well 2v2, though you'll probably want two base sets for the extra board, trackers and cards.

It might be hard to come by, but Sid Meier's Civilization: The Card Game is another one we play a lot of 2v2.

One we just recently played as teams is Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective: The Thames Murders & Other Cases, but that one you probably won't want to be in the same room for, since you don't want the other team to hear your discussions or the results of your investigations until it's over.

+1 1775 (also consider 1812; simpler and accommodates 5 players)/

Memoir '44 and Command & Colors: Ancients each can accommodate up to 2 teams of 4 players each.

Last Night on Earth: The Zombie Game - great balance and major fun. Both teams have an equal opportunity to win.

You rate Lord of the Rings the Card Game a 10. Maybe look at Knizia's Lord of the Rings cooperative game.
