Get a closer look at one of the strongest trends in board gaming - cooperative games, in which a group of players are collectively pitted against the game itself. Players work together as a team to achieve victory, while winning or losing as a group. Cooperative games emphasize teamwork over competition, for a change. Students will get the opportunity to play a variety of cooperative games during the week, each one with a unique take on how to bring people together to defeat that nasty ol' game engine the game designer created to thwart your efforts. This course will give students a chance to work together harmoniously (or in some cases not so much) in effort to defeat the bad guys, survive the catastrophe, or deliver the sacred item safely, just to name a few thematic directions these games might take you. It's all for one and one for all in this course. Co-sponsored with Game Night Games.
