I wonder who would be the best deck to team up with that.

Cthulhu Ninjas?

Also, I wonder if there's a 'pool' location.

Hey Scott, I hope you wouldn't mind me asking, but do you have any recommendations for a co-op non-gamer board game? I've trawled a couple of the sites above but the best I could come up with was Ghost Stories, and that doesn't seem very newbie-friendly.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Either Forbidden Island or Flash Point Fire Rescue would be your best bet, definitely not ghost stories, your non-gamer friends will run for the hills! I think Forbidden Island is more non-gamer friendly and you could then branch out to Flash Point and Pandemic.

The gateway co-op game is traditionally Pandemic. It's pretty non-gamer friendly and they've just released a new edition of it with fancy box art. It can be a little daunting though with the set up and the rules. Most people are able to grasp it pretty quickly after a turn or two.

Another is Forbidden Island - much lighter on the rules and quicker setup time I believe. I haven't got this one yet but plan to when my daughters head back to live with me next year.

I also own Shadows over Camelot, and my non-gamer friends have had alot of fun with it. It's pretty daunting at first, but the turns flow really well once you get the hang of it.

Pandemic, Forbidden Island and Shadows over Camelot should be worth a look :)

Ghost Stories is apparently designed to make people cry. Bokke66 has a copy I've been meaning to get him to drag to the table!

Ya beat me to it! Flash Point, I think I have to try again. We just seem to beat it too easy. Having said that I don't think we'll beat it ever again now haha.

It's a co-op Fire Fighter with a pretty good theme.

I've also got Defenders of the Realm which is abit more advanced than Pandemic but very similiar feel. You have to defeat evil dragon/demons instead of viruses.

Thanks guys, Forbidden Island looks like a good starting point/gateway drug, cheers.

Think I might add a seperate Gateway games section. I was amazed at how much people loved Zombie Dice. I ended up buying my mother her own copy of it :)
