Do you have any favorite team games? It seems to me that team play is an under-utilized mechanism, at least when it comes to strategy games. It's of course used a lot in party games, but that isn't what I'm looking for right now.
- My favorite team game is #War Chest. You can play a 2v2 game, and in my opinion, it's just as much fun as the 1v1 game.
- I'm sure @Courageous Bob could chime in about #The Defence of Procyon III, which I think plays 2v2 as well.
- There's also #Captain Sonar, which is the first 4v4 strategy game I've seen, but it has a real-time element which is not something I generally want in games. It's a really neat game though.
- I know that games like #Star Wars: Rebellion and #War of the Ring: Second Edition have team variants, but (without having played them) those seem like sub-optimal ways to play those games.
