I have a few. The Legendary series of card games for example. But, I find them much more enjoyable if we all play purely co-op and forget about the scoring at the end.

Otherwise it leads to actions not in favor of the group which jeopardizes the whole team's efforts and that is frustrating in a co-op game.

POLL DESCRIPTION

Personal logo etotheipi Sponsoring Member of TMP explains:

Competitive/Collaborative Game – a game where multiple players on one side have to work together in order to win, but there is a ranking of players within the winning side.

Example: In the Bombardment of Sweaborg the British and French commanders at sea are attacking the Russian and Finnish commanders in the fortress Viapori. No commander has enough forces to take on the enemy alone. Each commander gets "glory" points for certain types of casualty and for their own surviving forces. Players take glory penalties for retreats and withdrawals.

One side will "win" the battle (the Russians and Finns in the historical one), but only one commander will have contributed more to the victory. Depending on your point structure, you could have the British and French withdraw when their supplies run out, but have destroyed so much of the fortress that it can no longer defend Helsinki, and thus "win".

Example: All players are beset by a horde of zombies. Nobody can make it out solo. And there aren't enough resources and bullets for everyone to make it. Surviving players get victory points based on zeds destroyed and supplies carried out.
