This month we will be exploring cooperative games. On June 6, 1944, the Allied powers united as one to invade Hitler's Europe, and end World War 2. I thought coop games would be fitting and easier to do. I figured we had more coop games in the group, than WWII themed ones.
Popular coop games are Arkham Horror, Pandemic, Mansions of Madness, and Betrayal at the House on the Hill. There are also the D&D games such as Castle Ravenloft and Wrath of Ashderolon. You also have Defenders of the Realm. I believe that Battlestar Galactica could also coop.
We will have several on hand, brought by different members. If you have a game that fits the bill and would like to bring it, please do! Note that we won’t limit ourselves to only playing games related to the selected theme, but everyone is of course encouraged to join in the fun if possible. It’ll be a great way to try out new games!
Theme Thursdays will be held every other Thursday meetup, roughly once a month. Theme suggestions are welcome anytime, so please email yours and I’ll keep a running list. They might range from actual theme (Horror, Egyptian, Sci-Fi, History, Gangster) to a game mechanic (tile-laying, card-driven, worker placement, dice-rolling) to a designer (Reiner Knizia, Vlaada Chvatil, Martin Wallace). Based on the feedback received, group organziers will decide on a theme and update the meetup description.
