Best Cooperative Board Games for Two
Unimaginable horrors, challenges that will challenge your sanity. Will you be able to survive the terrible threat of the Ancient One together? Arkham Horror is one of the most engaging and well-known cooperative board games in the world. You will play as a group (or a couple) of brave investigators who train in the gloomy streets of Arkham and work together to prevent the return of the Ancient One. The perfect game, therefore, to play with your better half to share the fight in health and in sickness (mental, above all). We recommend it for long Sunday evenings, with a little rain to act as an atmosphere and to mark your moves.
