The best team-based games 👯‍♂️ 2022

Looking for a really good team-based game 👯‍♂️? Then we have just the thing for you: the list of the best team games 2022.

What are team games?

In team games, teams of players compete against each other to achieve victory - and this is also possible in social games such as card games, dice games & board games. There are a variety of possible team structures, including symmetrical teams like 2v2 and 3v3, multiple teams like 2v2v2, and even One vs All.

Because we like the concept so much we have created a separate category for the latter: The best one vs. the rest games.

Examples of team-based games

A good example of a team-based game is Codenames. Here 2 teams play against each other. The winner is the team that first guessed all their own spies - and not the assassin.

Classic card games also often have teams (e.g. Skat, Doppelkopf, Tichu).
