6 fantastic board games where you have to work together to win.
If you’re looking for a co-operative board game, then you’ve arrived at the right place! At Bananagrams we love competitive play, but honestly, we understand if you’re not in the mood to be utterly destroyed by that family member who has memorized all two-letter words in the dictionary.
Here’s a list of the best co-operative board games we’ve played. It’s a great way to pass an evening working together with family and friends.
Pandemic is a wildly popular co-operative board game where you have to race to stop the spread of killer viruses. There are outbreaks in different cities and, using special abilities, you need to save the world.
We’ve all read the book, now you can play the co-operative board game! In this game, you’re a group of shipwreck survivors who must rebuild parts of society on the island to live. From foraging for food to discovering treasure – this is a tricky game that requires building a plan together.
Forbidden Desert is another co-operative survival board game set in the searing heat of a mysterious land. Players must recover an ancient machine while coping with the extreme conditions of the desert. Watch out for sandstorms and unexpected surprises!
If you’re a Marvel superfan then you’ve probably already left this page to buy the game. For everyone else, this a travel-friendly card game about teaming up to take out supervillains. Each game you can select a supervillain and the heroes you are recruiting to stop their evil plans.
We all know the scene: Voldemort’s army is starting to attack Hogwarts while the book’s protagonists (and their allies) stand ready to defend their school. In this co-operative board game players must pick their heroes and build their defences. Just keep an eye on the Weasley twins this time…
Another island-based co-operative board game, but this time with a twist! Spirit Island is about defending your land for colonizers using mysterious elemental powers (fire, water and more). Each round represents several years of progress, and your job is to work together to defend your native lands. Warning – this one can be a little complex to play.
