With this group the struggle wasn’t getting together for board games. It was figuring out what the hell a “co-op” meant. Working together? Madness! All joking aside, if there was any at all there, sometimes you don’t want to go for each others’ throats. Sometimes you want a good game where teamwork comes into play to see if you can win as a group.
Co-op games aren’t just for kids games for families trying to teach an ultra-competitive child to work together and have good sportsmanship (something my brother can understand) but there are amazing co-op games for gamers of all ages. Some are spooky, some ratchet up the pressure to 11/10 from the beginning, and many of our favorites have a traitor mechanic.
In other words, there are a WIDE array of great experiences when it comes to good co-op board games that even competitive gamers like Braden and I can get behind!
