What are some board games where you play on a team that is divided into very specific roles like say an army that has different players acting as the infantry officer, artillery officer, and cavalry officer? Not talking typical RPG/coop player role cards like in pandemic/flashpoint fire rescue/Eldritch Horror etc. where it just allows a few different minor abilities, but more meaningful role distinctions like X-com and Captain sonar. Where the game play is fundamentally and mechanically different for each role.

I think Space Cadets: Dice Duel is Captain Sonar with dice and open movement?

Also, the original Space Cadets, as long as you consider a game where everyone is on the same team to be a team game.

Well, you already mentioned it but XCOM: The Board Game was the first thing that came to mind for me.

Not available yet but Nemo's War (second edition) will have different roles for the people on a 'team' playing the game coop.

For a slightly out of left field suggestion: Codenames

Ooh good suggestions everyone. I've played space cadets and love Captain Sonar and X-com and codenames haha.

But Goths Save the Queen and Nemo's war I've never heard of! Goths save the queen's mechanic sounds right up my ally and Nemo's war sold me with the 20,000 leagues under the sea theme! Have to check em out!

Thanks!
