  1. Arkham Horror LCG, my wife and I both have it at #1. In general, not just as co-op. It’s a shame that it doesn’t fit y’all’s content creation lifestyle (I imagine) of needing to move on to new games. I feel like it is too big of a barrier for y’all to even want to play it, so I don’t really recommend it, but it’s so good. It’s so good I think mansions is terrible because it is in comparison for us so we’d just far rather play Arkham Horror LCG

  2. Do you have a recommendation for a co op campaign game if you’ve never played those types of games before? Would love to give it a try!

  3. Most important question, what is a craft dinner? Survival rations???

  4. I find my wife and I enjoying co-ops more and more

    Here are a few of my favorites
    4.) Regicide – such a simple game you can play with a standard deck of cards
    3.) The Crew – if you enjoy trick taking games, this should be right up your alley
    2.) Leviathan Wilds – Almost too new to be on a list but it just feels so good (you guys should definitely check it out!)

    Before #1 please don't yuck it because I admit it is not for everyone and I don't want to force people to like it (but I'm glad you are open to trying it again from one of your spicy hot take videos)
    1.) Spirit Island – by far my most played game, when it finally clicks and you play cooperatively with someone who also gets the flow, this game just sings for me

  5. Making me want to revisit Stardew valley 🙂 great list!

  6. This atheist guy is a walking talking monolog, stfu & Let the other guy speak for a sentence…

  7. My wife and I play only co-op games, and currently own a couple hundred I think. So our top 10 is actually our overall top 10 also.
    Top 10 (me)
    1. Spirit Island
    2. Marvel Champions
    3. Pandemic (the entire group)
    4. The Crew: Mission Deep Sea
    5. Viticulture World
    6. Last Bastion
    7. Atlantis Rising
    8. Beyond Baker Street
    9. Daybreak
    10. Shipwreck Arcana

    Honorable – For Science!, Dead Men Tell No Tales, Shards of infinity (with Shadows of Salvation), Gloomhaven JOTL, Rush MD

    Top 10 (my wife):

    3. Rush MD

    5. Spirit Island
    6. Beyond Baker Street
    7. Exit: the game
    8. MicroMacro
    9. Pandemics
    10. Endangered
    Honorable – Forgotten Waters, 5-Minute Mystery, Now Boarding

  8. Hey! Where's Albion's Legacy? Tannhauser? Fallen City of Karez? 😉🙂

  9. I think that you already played and loved Orléans. If so, you should try the coop version of it. It has become one of my favorite, even more than the original.
    Great list by the way and yes for Kraft Dinner!

  10. I really vibed with Jamie's short 20… sorry, I meant Jeff's top 10… :p

  11. I really like the video and all the games included on both of your guys's list , but I am just blown away that you did not include sky team 🤯, I freaking love sky team 😀

  12. Artisans of the splendant vale, the loop, pandemic, the crew, pandemic, Gloomhaven JOTL, Orleon, So Clover, Just One and legacy of Dragonholt are my favorites.

  13. Have you tried The Isofarian Guard? Such a fantastic 2P co-op. I reckon you guys would lurve it

  14. Great list! With Ghost Stories and TMB in there, clearly tells how you like tough games!
    We love Subterra, Robinson Crusoe, and some iteration of Zombicide 😊

  15. I have not played a single game on this list. On my list would be – Marvel United, Return to Dark Tower, Spirit Island, Pandemic, Oathsworn.

  16. Sweet list !
    I don't know anything about Stardew valley but i'm defenatly gonna try that Digital version !

    Here is my good old coop list (when i had… a partner…) and in no particular Order 🙂

    -Aeon's end / Astro Knights
    -Spirit Island '(yeah… i know.. i know…)
    -FLIPSHIPS
    -Street Masters
    -Sentinels of the multiverse – Definitive Edition
    -The Game
    -Lord of the Rings LCG
    -X-Odus – Rise of the Corruption
    -UNLOCK
    -Mysterium Park

    And my Solo list :

    -Marvel Champions (and) Lord of the rings LCG
    -Bullet
    -Warp's Edge
    -Street Masters
    -Astro Knights
    -Naturopolis / Sprawpolis
    -Cascadia / Calico
    -Heat
    -Planet Unknown
    -After Us

  17. I think once you get into Vagrant Song it's going to drop off your list. Although I finished it, I feel the game dropped off a bit… Mansions of Madness still on my top as well… Still gotta get into Too Many Bones, I bought a good amount… but only so much time…

  18. Mechs v Minions is my absolute number one grail game. Would love to play with y’all one day 🙂 also I would agree with Jamie that Horrified is a modern classic came out in 2019 so I think 5 years old is worthy

  19. Marvel Champions is my fave co-op. Would love to see y’all play as Rogue/Gambit vs. an X-Men villain!

  20. All of your lists should be short-20s from now on.

  21. Co op Board games have really become some of my favorite, Horrified, Scooby Doo the board game and Star Wars the Clone Wars are so special to me to play with my Boyfriend and sister

  22. Great lists! I really want to play freelancers. What is its replayability?

  23. You guys are awesome! Great list, always love watching your videos

  24. LOVE co-ops! My favorites:
    1. The LOOP
    2. Eldritch Horror
    3. Pandemic
    4. Mysterium
    5. Just One
    6. The Grizzled
    7. Altar Quest
    8. Unmatched: Tales to Amaze
    9. Mansions of Madness
    10. Daybreak

  25. Harry Potter Hogwarts Battle
    Legendary Marvel
    Clank Legacy(semi co-op)
    Kites
    These are a few of our top co-op games.

  26. If the crew isn’t number 1 I boycott the channel

  27. If anyone didn't know you were Canadian, they probably figured it out when you said "Kraft Dinner".

  28. Since Jeff doesn’t really like marvel, you both should play Lord of the rings the card game (LCG)!! It’s so good!!!

  29. The "hungry" response at the beginning was hilarious. Another great video! I don't play too many co-op but here's what my top 5 would be:

    5. Sky Team
    4. Sprawlopolis
    3. Marvel Champions
    2. Burgle Bros
    1. The Reckoners

    I've also played all of the above solo but I tried to base that ranking on how much I enjoyed my cooperative plays and how much I would look forward to another cooperative session of each one.

  30. That short 20 would soooooooooo annoy me 😅. Like what's the point of a top 10?!?!? Make it a 20!!

  31. I’m a fan of co-op games! Some of my favorites include:
    Mechs vs Minions
    Project: Elite
    Pandemic Legacy S1
    Return to Dark Tower
    Mansions of Madness 2nd Ed
    The Crew
    The Shipwreck Arcana
    Just One
    So Clover
    Cross Clues

    Honorable mentions:
    Dead Reckoning (2p only)
    Lost Ruins of Arnak (2p only w/exp)
    Fallout (w/exp)
    A Message From the Stars (very new)

  32. Learned two things from this video: 1) there's at least one person out there that actually knows a song from Lion King 2, and 2) that there was a Lion King 2.

  33. I wasn’t aware how much I had begun to lean toward coop games until I did a pub meeple this year and like 4 out of my top 10 were coop and realistically 3-5

  34. Your microphones seems to be clipping/maxing out in this video more than usual

  35. I love that song from Lion King 2. I am going to go watch the video now! Love you guys!! did you guys record this after the board game cleaning? Kraft dinner is mentioned again LOL.

  36. There are so many good coop games. I live loads of these. Stardew Valley is a definite fave. I also like viticulture world but that might be recency bias as only first played it recently.

    Thanks again, guys, for your amazing content. I always look forward to your videos!

  37. coop games may be the best thing to ever happen to board games… among my favorites are…

    Arkham Horror 2nd Edition

    any Legendary/Legendary Encounter game

    burncycle

    ISS Vanguard

    Defenders of the Realm

  38. Good list new coop in our house is wolves

  39. Nice, I haven't played most of your games. I'm most interested in Marvel Champions and Too Many Bones. I've never played Stardew Valley, but it sounds cool. I have Freelancers, but haven't been able to play it yet. I don't have a lot of coops, but my list would include Pandemic, Zoo Break, Project Elete, Marvel United, Adventure Tactics, and Gloomhaven. Adventure Tactics and Gloomhaven would be 1 and 2.

  40. I LOVE Too Many Bones… but I HATE Stardew Valley… such a weird list for me.

  41. Horrified is great! I have always been intrigued by Mansions of Madness. Jamie I loved the ad for WSBG – well done – you made me laugh!

  42. So I see a couple people who've never tried Thunderbirds… 🙂

  43. Have you played Slay the Spire? Amazing coop. Black Orchestra as well.

  44. I legit love Lion King II, not even kidding i think its better than the original 😂

  45. Solid, solid, solid list!!! Love these picks—Vagrantsong and Ghost Stories are two personal favorites (we still need to play the White Moon expansion), and Cthulhu Death May Die and Mansions of Madness are on our want-to-play shelf (plus, while we haven't gotten Freelancers, we just got Forgotten Waters and have a group we think it'll really shine with).

    We're also big Horrified fans, and I'm wondering… have you heard anything at all about the "World of Monsters" version that's floating around online preorder lists? Seems like a big mystery…

  46. When you said I will not take part in your shenanigans I thought of Bert and Ernie. Great vid.

  47. Spirit Island is definitely on top of my list, strange it wasn't even mentioned.
