All you have to do is to cooperate with your team and find the success of the game. As such, here are some of the best cooperative board games.


Talking about cooperative board games, Pandemic is probably one of the best choices. This game promotes and focuses on teamwork, communication, prioritization, and thinking up clever solutions to problems before all you die. This game has no competition at all. You need to work together to save every player from death.


Another great board game that promotes cooperation is Mysterium. This game was being played untranslated and unlocalized at different gaming events and conventions. It is considered by many as a wonderfully weird board game.

Betrayal at House on the Hill

In this game, the one and only main goal is to escape through parachutes hideen in the attic. It may sound easy but, with 4 players in the game, there are only 2 parachuttes to escape. Hence, this game is a gripping, bizzare and yet surprising board game.
