It's great. Sure you're going to love it!

A brilliant game!

I got this because I read it was good for two players, and it is. It's nice to play a game where you work together to win so there's no arguments! I highly recommend it.

Excellent game at at great price

Just got around to ordering. Wanting to get into board games and seems like a great place to start.

It's fun but be prepared to lose more often than you win haha

(Also Forbidden Island and Forbidden Desert are very similar to Pandemic if it turns out you enjoy Pandemic, they turn up on offer fairly often for around £20 or under)

We got Pandemic for last Christmas, and at the start of November Forbidden Island was ordered for this one. Any other suggestions of what else to look out for?

I can't really think of any other teamwork games quite like that that I've played, but Betrayal at House on the hill involves teamwork, although one person gets selected to be the traitor part way in to the game (a storyline of what the betrayal is and what the goal is gets picked at random from a booklet by a dice roll at that point) then everyone has to work to stop the traitor who has their own goal.

If you're looking for other games where you're competing but things are quite light and people don't really have potential for screwing others over then Dixit is fun. Sushi Go/ Sushi Go Party is also pretty laid back, fun and quick to play.

One Night Ultimate Werewolf is quite silly and fun with a large group of people, it does have potential to get heated though. it's a social deduction game (of sorts) generally it's about who can be the most convincing at making their case or deflecting suspicion. I'd say you need at least 5/6 people for a decent game of it though

Own it, love it!

I would also recommend Flash Point as a good co-op game.

I would also recommend Eldrich horror for a teamwork game. Very in-depth and games can take 2-3 hours. Pretty expensive since though if memory serves.

Back down to £21.79 again

I ordered Carcassonne yesterday and this game came up as an alternative, might have to get 2 games!

I love carcassone, it’s great because I can play it with my 6yr old, and I don’t have to fake I’m having a good time like most kids games

The Dead of Winter and Zombicide series', Battlestar Galactica and Mechs Vs Minions are all cooperative games that involve players working together for a common goal although DoW and BSG often involve a hidden traitor/betrayer in the group. They're all also usually all a lot more expensive than this price and you're not likely to find any bargains on MvM since you can only buy it directly from the developer's site and it's already absurdly cheap for what you get and how amazing it actually is.

Yes, got this one too. Love it! That pesky fire gets out all over the place.

Cheers, ordered Pandemic for me and the wife to play and also Kingdomino to play with our 6 yr old , considered Carcassone but thought it might be too complicated for her (our daughter that is)

Just spotted this on Amazon and posted a deal ... but deleted since I came across this post.

Looks really good and looking forward to playing at Christmas with the family

Being a co-op game I'm hoping for no sulks or tears over this one ...

Carcassone would be great for your daughter, I play it with my 6 year old. Yeah he doesnt stand a chance in winning but he can participate and enjoys the game without negatively effecting it other than knocking all the pieces out of joint every now and again.
