Bomb Squad is a cooperative game for 2 to 6 players that can be played in 10 to 30 minutes. In this real-time game, players take the roles of a bomb squad, controlling a robot with the goal of disarming bombs and saving hostages. Communication and information are limited, and each player’s cards are only visible to the other players at the table. Making things more difficult, players are not allowed to give each other specific clues or hints as to which cards to play. If you’re looking for a very unique cooperative game, then you need to try this game.

Wrath of Dragons is a competitive or cooperative game for 2 to 6 players that can be played in 90 minutes. In this resource management game of burned fields and stolen sheep, players act as dragons competing to wreak the most havoc, become the richest and most powerful dragon and earn the most victory points. An interesting twist on this game is its cooperative mode which allows players to work together to obliterate the kingdoms entirely. If you’re looking for a strong Worker Placement game with a good theme, give this one a shot.

Pirate Den is a competitive game for 3 to 5 players that can be played in 30 minutes. In this game of bluffing and deception, players act as pirate captains trying to get the most loot. Players use cards to collect gems and burry treasure, and the game continues until 1 player has 5 buried treasures. At that point, the winner and the best pirate, is the player with the most buried treasure and gems. If you’re looking for a fast-paced competitive but lighthearted game, definitely give this game a shot.
