  1. An oldie but a goodie: Forbidden Island is a fun one

  2. Marvel Champions tops my list. Its so thematic. I feel like I am Captain America or Hulk. The variety of content available is insane. The ability to mix and match the villain deck makes for such a versatile game!!!I fell for Earthborne Rangers on the creators alone but that gameplay sells itself. So much fun. A true open world RPG in a card game!!I bought Spirit Island at your(amd a few others recommendation) a few yrs back and amazing. There is so much on even the Core box to keep that game fresh and new. Its such a fun, strategic game!!My favorite not mentioned… Star Wars The Clone Wars (pandemic system). Yes, its a reskin but it works very nicely on a thematic level for the Clone Wars. would love to see more heroes to choose from and more villains to go up against.

  3. Great list! I can’t get into Spirit Island for some reason, but literally every other game in this list seems at least very interesting. The one I’m most tempted to just go out and buy right now, however, is Sail. Not the first time I hear great things about it, but definitely the most impactful.

  4. Good list, I didn't played many of them. Spirit Island is my top game of all time too. I don't understand the buzz around Marvel Champion and Gloom/Frosthaven but all games are not for everyone. Here's my top 10 coop games

    Honorable mentions:
    HM1. Venom Assault
    HM2. Lost ruins of Arnak (Lost expedition coop extension)

    10. Project Elite
    9. Viticulture World
    8. Nemesis (coop mode)
    7. The crew (space or underwater)
    6. The loop
    5. Sentinels of the multiverse
    4. Pandemic (any one)
    3. Aeon's end (any one)
    2. Primal: the Awakening
    1. Spirit Island

  5. Can you elaborate a bit on the fact that both Marvel Champions and Earthborne Rangers secured spots on your list?

    Champions is my favorite coop game of all time (and only behind Root and Arcs in my overall favorites), but my hype for Earthborne Rangers is off the charts. I haven’t played it yet because I’m waiting on a localization to play with my group, but from what I’ve seen and heard about it so far, I kinda have a feeling it might kill Marvel Champions for me and my group.

    I know they have as much that’s different between them than that’s similar, but still. Curious about your thoughts on these two games coexisting in your list.

  6. I can't see how the hell marvel champions is not 1st
    Spirit island sucks

  7. Great list!
    Here is my top 10 Coop board games:
    10) Horrified
    9) Sky Team
    8) Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion
    7) Robinson Crusoe : Adventure of the Cursed Island
    6) The Crew
    5) Cthulhu: Death May Die
    4) Pandemic Legacy
    3) Nemesis
    2) CO2 : Second chance
    1) Spirit Island
    And some honorable mentions: Codename Duet, Sleeping Gods: Distant Skies, Zombicide, Exit, Mystérium, Unlock!

  8. Thank you for your content it is very interesting. Have you played Aeons End? THat is a great Cooperative game in my opinion?

  9. Great list! I would definitely add Black Orchestra and Paleo. Two of my absolute favourites, just so mechanically solid and thematic experiences, wonderful stuff!

  10. Solid list! A couple of our family favorites – The Crew (speaking of trick-taking) and Dorf Romantik.

  11. My favorite co-op game is The Captain Is Dead; it's the best one to elicit true cooperation and table-talk.

  12. wow no Pandemic? We are spoiled for choice when it comes to games.

  13. My favorites are:
    – Spirit Island
    – Cthulhu: Death May Die
    – Mansion of Madness
    – Eldritch Horror ( a bit long though)
    – The crew
    – Sleeping Gods, the original

  14. among my faves would be…
    Arkham Horror 2nd Edition

    any Legendary/Legendary Encounter game


    ISS Vanguard
