MANSFIELD, TX, April 17, 2018 – Do you have games sitting on the shelf because your first-choice play partner is tired of losing to you? Dragon Phoenix Games can help. Since August of 2017, they have created cooperative-play adaptations of over 30 popular tabletop games that they offer free on their web site.

The creative team at Dragon Phoenix Games calls this series of adaptations “Games for Friends and Lovers.” Each entry includes complete instructions plus a YouTube video that introduces the game play changes that allow players to play together to achieve a joint goal, rather than trying to defeat each other to win.

“We prefer to avoid using a dummy player when we can,” says Harvey Cornell IV, Lead Designer and Publisher at Dragon Phoenix Games. “We do this by creating an objective-based win goal. This creates an interesting puzzle for players to solve together.”

Today the Dragon Phoenix Games team launched a Kickstarter project to help fund acquisition of new games for the Games for Friends and Lovers line. They are looking for $500 to fund the project. Funding at this level will support development of adaptations for 7 Wonders, Azul, Dominion, Star Trek: Fleet Captains, Cottage Garden, Clans of Caledonia, Ethnos, The Quest for El Dorado, Broom Service, Small World, Tiny Epic Quest, and Tzolk'in.* Of course if funding exceeds the goal, the team will add more games.

“We started Games for Friends and Lovers because people in our game group tell us their significant others won’t play with them,” says Carlie Cornell, head of art, marketing and travel departments at Dragon Phoenix Games. “We learned from some of our followers that they also use our adaptations for solo play by playing two positions.”

The Games for Friends and Lovers project will run until May 13, 2018. Backers can pledge to support this project on Kickstarter.

At what pledge level will you launch "Games for Strangers and Enemies", whereby you make coop games competitive? That's when I would be interested.
