Rantings of a deranged themey-euro-strategy-game-collecting curmudgeon

I think the title pretty well covers it! Stray gamer thoughts, musings on game design principles and possible some cranky tirades about games that I'm sure will put die-hard fans up in frothing fury.

A Crazy Couples Co-op Compared Cooperative Rankings

In 2009, I made a geeklist ranking and rating all of the cooperative games that Lisa and I had played thus far. We're real nuts for co-op games, and I thought it might be helpful. In 2011, I did an updated Crazy Couples Co-op Guide. I tried to add to it, but often didn't keep it up; and old posts to new geeklists often are overlooked anyway.

So I'm redoing the list for 2012. It's going to be bigger, have a better format (I hope) and will include expansions.

That's still in the works (and I'm sort of waiting on BGG.Con to get in a few more co-ops for 2012), but in the meantime I thought I'd post our overall ratings for all the co-ops we've played up through 2012.

Some of these may be a little misleading, such as when we played a co-op a lot at first but are now tired of it (in the upcoming geeklist, I've got 'addictive' and 'long term replayability' ratings to give an indication of how those tastes have changed).

This is highly subjective and just based on my and Lisa's ratings.
