We've been playing Pandemic which isn't about anything sweet (its about global ill-health) but is totally a cooperative game.
One thing I like, and didn't get right away, is that it is cooperation, but with much emphasis that each player has different gifts. So you can lose (its the players against the game) by trying to do things that you should have let another player do, because they had the better gifts for that.
(Hmm, is "gifts" language weird? That's totally church language. What is the secular word for that? Mind-blip, please forgive.)

I'm looking for a board game or games for adults that teaches or givespractice in cooperation or consensus, for our forming cohousing group. Does anyone have experience with the Fair Play Games such as Community, Our Town,New America, Personal Portraits, etc., or do you have other games torecommend? Ideally they should be playable by 5 to 12 or more players and,of course, be fun.
