Ep 11 – The Co-Op Episode

by | Mar 22, 2020 | Everyday Meeple, podcast

We joked we would call it the co-op episode but that’s really a bit of a misnomer. While we do focus on the Ravensburger game Horrified, which is a beautiful family weight, gateway co-op. And we do spend a lot of time talking about the benefits of playing co-op games with kids, and what some favourites are. I would say we spend the bulk of the time talking about the game design enigma that is Prospero Hall.

Prospero Hall is a design studio that has slowly been making a “name” for itself since about 2016. They have come into their own with some really solid games and a business plan that shakes up conventions and has landed them some really big IPs including Disney.


  1. Why is that in the co-op list? We do mention in the show that Kids of Carcassonne (My First Carcassonne) is not specifically a co-op game but it has elements in it that constantly help other players and my daughter specifically played it cooperatively for the first while so it made the co-op list even though it is not a co-op game. Hopefully that’s OK. 🙂
  2. I said it feels like a 50’s vibe and it does – but it might be closer to the 1850s. 🙂
  3. I also mention that you gain a “free action” in Horrified when you help a villager get to their safe space. What actually happens is you get an item card that gives you a bonus that can be used on any heros turn (not the monsters turn).
  4. *If you notice anything else please let us know in the comments or send us an email.
