Cooperative Board Games
What is a co-operative board game?
The Board Game Box has brought you a list of the best cooperative board games for you to learn about and buy. From the titanic Gloomhaven dungeon crawler to the modern classic Pandemic, we have the best co-op board games to play with friends and family. A cooperative board game is one where all the players collaborate in order to beat the game and win, as opposed to the much more traditional board gaming rules that pit each player against one another to ensure there is one sole winner. Most cooperative board games will include rules that dictate how the game progresses to allow either the players to win or lose as a group. They must play as a group to prevent the board from reaching its winning (and for the players losing) conditions. A lot of these cooperative board games provide players with special abilities to aid them, like Pandemic and its various character cards.
Co-operative board games
Some of these co-op board games have players aiming to win as a group, achieving the same mutual goal like Forbidden Island, Arkham Horror The Card Game or Mansions of Madness. Whilst other examples of co-operative board games have multiple players playing together to beat a single other player in good versus evil style battles, such as A Touch of Evil, so it really depends what style of cooperative board game you are after.
