Cooperative and Team Games Night

Eat, drink, and enjoy board and card games in a welcoming, friendly, and relaxed environment in the heart of downtown Bend.

This is cooperative and team game night. What is a "cooperative" or "team" game?

• A cooperative game is a game in which all players work together to try and win the game. Everyone wins or loses together. A few examples of cooperative games are Pandemic, Sentinels of the Multiverse, Forbidden Island, and Dungeon Fighter.

• A team game is a game in which a group of players work together to try and win against another group - or multiple groups - of players. A few examples of team games are Ticket to Ride (Team Asia Map), Space Cadets Dice Duel, and classic "partnership" card games. Many games can be played as team games simply by pairing people up on a team.  

You are welcome to bring a game that you think fits in this category to the game night if you like, but you don't have to bring a game. Remember that there will always be a selection of games for you to choose from that the hosts will provide.

    I had a fun time. Glad to see there was 3 separate games going on. It was a bit crowded, but 'more the merrier', right? I do wish you will think about branching out to a bigger venue. I wish Mark would start up the Game Night again at the East Library. I guess I really don't understand why there is a limit. I understand actual room size dictates the amount of gamers/regular tea drinkers at the Townshend. I think I also understand the 'RSVP' deal, to anticipate who is planning on showing up and such. I know people's schedule changes all the time, and to limit the number of players to show up, isn't 'tasteful' for me. If you started a meet-up for people to have fun playing games, then why limit it? I understand as the crowd gets bigger, the responsibility and level of preparing also increases, but that shouldn't be a show stopper. Anyways, not trying to tell you how to run things, just saying whats on my mind. I do look forward to future meet-ups when I'm in town.

      I was talking with Paul (and others) about this after we left tonight. Quite a few of us are thinking the same thing, and Paul already said he was going to look into some bigger venues for the future. Likewise, I understand there are plans to do some extra events besides the "main" one on Saturday night. From what I understand, this just grew in popularity more quickly than expected, and Paul's working hard to sort it out. I don't think any of us want to leave people on a "wait list" if we can avoid it.

    I know the name of this group specifies board games but is there anybody interested in playing or learning bridge? Would bridge be an appropriate game to bring to cooperative game night or any of the other game nights?

      Hi Karen - I think bridge makes sense on cooperative and team game night, because my understanding is that it is a team game.

      I am not a bridge player and I do not know whether or not anyone else plays, but the group is big enough that I can't know what everyone is interested in.

      What I always encourage people to do is to bring their own games in and try to invite others to join them. My experience is that most people are willing to try something new if there is a patient and positive person who is willing to teach them.

      So, bring some cards along and introduce yourself to some other players when you arrive, and with a little luck and a few smiles you can probably get a game going.

      Hope to see you at a game night soon!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
