Do you play games with your significant other? Do you have recommendations for us?
Forbidden Desert is one of the only cooperative games we own. We enjoy playing it from time to time, and I’d love to find other games we could play together as a team.
We recently discovered Pandemic (thanks Steve for the tip!) and enjoyed playing it too, but I prefer the desert theme to the global pandemic theme that feels like it hits a bit too close to home. :)
When looking for recommendations, online threads and blog posts often reference big games like Gloomhaven, Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion, or Spirit Island. Those seem interesting, but quite complex too! The Gloomhaven games also seem to be great dungeon crawlers, but my wife and I have never played dungeon crawlers before. I would love to give the genre a try, but I think we would prefer to start with something that’s more oriented towards solving puzzles / exploration, instead of combat. That said, I’ve never played dungeon crawlers so what do I know? :)
All this to say, if you have any recommendations for cooperative board games for two, let me know!
