Hi guys - can anyone suggest cooperative games appropriate for 6 to 10 year olds?

And, separately, games for 6 to 10 year olds where the score is hidden so the winner is not certain until the end?

In regards to hidden score games, what type of games are you looking for in terms of weight or theme etc?

Simple ones would be Diamant or Diamant or Celestia

A bit more complicated one not normally suggested but fits is Sewer Pirats but maybe you could find better and might work with some but not with others.

Tales & Games: The Hare & the Tortoise would be perfect

Oh and our favourite game The Little Prince: Make Me a Planet generally doesn't make it obvious who's the winner until you count up at the end but there is also a varient in the rulebook for hidden characters (what you score points for) so you really don't know how the others are doing

Co-ops don't work for my family but two you might find good suggestions are Castle Panic or Flash Point: Fire Rescue

For Coops,

I think that Forbidden Island or Forbidden Desert are great ideas. I think that Castle Panic is a great one but you might need to explain a few cards.

Escape: The Curse of the Temple -- real-time dice-rolling cooperative game.

Evolution: The Beginning -- not a coop, but hidden scoring. Each turn, players' species consume food tokens that are placed in their bags, to be counted at the end of the game. Each good token is worth 1 point, as is each card the player has on the table and in hand.

For the hidden score (and a great game), check Ice Cool

A suggestion for coop: Mechs vs. Minions. It works well with children due to its simple mechanic, maybe the younger one needs a little bit of help but that's fine since the game is coop.
