Can anyone recommend any *very* short pure co-op games? I'm looking for 30 minutes, maximum (preferably a bit shorter). Also, must *not* be a team game or a game that contains hidden traitors.

Thanks!

One Deck Dungeon The first couple might be more a bit more than 30 but they get shorter as you get experienced. 2 player co-op

5-Minute Dungeon
Dungeon Time

You'll probably lose in 30 minutes or less

I kid... I kid...

-------------

My real suggestion is what Jon Said:

Escape: The Curse of the Temple

It's setup time is no more than 5 minutes and the actual play time is exactly 10 minutes. It is a pure co-op game. Not sure what you mean by team-game considering all co-ops are team games depending on how you define "team."

Most of these suggestions have already been made, but...

Hanabi
One Deck Dungeon
FUSE
The Grizzled
Port Royal with the Port Royal: Just One More Contract... expansion.

Dungeon Time is quick, but not very thrilling.

Zombie 15' PLAYS in 15 minutes, but the set-up time makes it take annoyingly longer. Still well within your time range though.

Yep. You could pretty easily play twice in 30 minutes, including setup and tear down.

For 2 players maximum,any of the Oniverse games I think.
I played a couple of times 2p just Onirim, not the others; a game solo lasts about 20 minutes, I think 2p was about 30 or 40m with another, inexperienced, player.

Onirim's a really nice game, I play it a lot solo with all 7 expansions added, I prefer Sylvion though.

That said I find I prefer playing them solo instead of co-op.

Presuming that a competitive game that can be played purely cooperatively is acceptable, there is also Dark Gothic. I advise using the 2 additional rules mentioned here, the second of which became official (for coop and competitive) with the expansion.

Space Alert plays in 10 minutes, though it doesn't feel like it. Initial rules explanation most likely takes quite a bit longer.
