I also creating a post on lost cities, but am trying to get as much feedback as possible.

Is Lost Cities or Rise of Rome better for co op play?

Co op is my first priority of game mode, then solo, then PvP.

Thanks!

Hard to say. I think they are both very good for that. However, I think Lost Cities might be slightly better for coop since you don't have to worry about rolling the AI dice for the Titan. With that said, you have a similar thing in LC with moving the boss and criminals/beasts. Definitely RoR is the best for solo. So it's hard to say for me.

FWIW - we don't think there's a wrong answer to this question (other than Origins obviously, which isn't designed with coop in mind). Lost Cities has 3 cities to play (as opposed to 2 in RoR), making it a bit more versatile in terms of unit choices. RoR plays a bit faster. Matter of preference honestly :-)

Looking at the rules, it seems the AI for Rise of Rome is a little more dynamic, mainly because of the fact the Titan's have their own sheets.

In that case, I would think Rise of Rome would be the better choice for a co op/solo experience, but there definitely does not seem to be a consensus on this from those who have actually played the games.

Curious to why that is/what still makes Lost Cities a comparable co op experience to Titans.

Very good question. I was planning on asking the same thing. Can some one who has played all three games elaborate on this ?

Thanks!
