More cooperative board games!

We really have got the bug now! I ordered these two great games from Peaceable Kingdom and we've not put them down since (and they are a lot cheaper than the Myriad ones).

Count your chickens!

For ages 3+ so we could all play this one.
The baby chicks have flown the coop! All players work together to help Mother Hen collect her chicks and bring them back to the coop. To start, players place the 40 baby chicks all around the board. Mother Hen is on start. The object of the game is to get all 40 baby chicks back inside the coop before Mother Hen gets to the last space on the board. Players spin and move Mother Hen, counting the number of spaces she travels. For each space travelled, players collect that number of baby chick markers and place them in the coop. But watch out for the fox! If the spinner lands on the fox a baby chick is removed from the coop. Players take turns, but work together – players count aloud together, collect the number chicks together and, if they collect them all, players win together!

Race to the treasure!

Ok, I REALLY like this one, ages 5+ so Isaac could not play it but Reuben (4 and a half) is fine with it, he even understands the use of coordinates.
Players try to beat the Ogre to the treasure by creating a path from START to END. Along the way they need to collect 3 keys to open the treasure. Players strategize, cooperate and build the path together. If they do it before the Ogre gets there, they win!
