Cooperative Family Games

November 16, 2023

Thanksgiving is fast approaching and you might be wondering how to entertain all those relatives from out of town. Or maybe you’re celebrating with chosen friends instead of family. No matter your circumstances, board games are always a sure bet to keep a group entertained! In harmony though perhaps not. The good news is that you can cut the competition and try some of these fantastic cooperative games this holiday season.

Forbidden Desert: This game involves players working together to escape seeping sand as it threatens to bury you and your supplies. It’s easy to learn, simple to set up, and has minimal components for clean up. Pick up the sister version Forbidden Island to change up the scenery!

Codenames Duet: Perfect for a pair preparing a meal at home with just two, or to have on standby for anyone who needs some entertainment while meal prep takes place. Work together as a team to uncover secret agents by giving each other one word clues!

Castle Panic: This is our go-to beginner co-op game for families! Work together to protect your castle from a forest full of foes before they tear it down! This game accommodates ages 8 and over, so it is perfect for families or groups with kids included.

In these games, everyone wins or loses together, so enjoy some camaraderie before or after you hit the table!
