A girls night and video games? That sounds fun! There’s plenty of fantastic games that you can play with your friends via local multiplayer and stuff perfect for an epic LAN party. While there’s a lot of competitive titles out there, we wanted to focus on the co-operative sort, so that you and your gal pals can take on all sorts of challenges together.

Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes
|Steel Crate Games
One of the most unusual co-operative games on the market, Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes is basically an interactive recreation of all the scenes in action movies where the main character has to defuse a bomb, pretending they known what they’re doing.
Same here: one of the players is the Defuser who sees the bomb, but doesn’t know what they’re supposed to do. They need to talk to the Experts who have the access to a defusal manual, but can’t see the bomb (the explosives are procedurally generated, by the way). As you can already see, communication issues will make the whole thing complicated. If you’re looking for a fun co-op puzzle game, try this one.
Don’t Starve Together
A multiplayer component to the wonderfully punishing Don’t Starve, Don’t Starve Together lets up to six players cooperate in hopes of survival. This will be a daunting task, for sure, but a tight-knit team will work wonders here!
That’s right: staying alive means that you need to act as one. Growing crops, gathering resources and fending off attacking monsters isn’t something you can deal with on your own. Adda a fascinating visual style to the mix and you’re going to get a co-op survival game that cannot be missed.
It Takes Two
This one is perfect if you have that one favorite friend of yours and you both love touching, heart-warming stories. It Takes Two pulls all the right emotional strings with its tale of reconciliation and mending bridges between the spouses on the brink of divorce.
The game puts the couple through all sorts of tribulations. Each and every level offers new challenges and surprises, so the gameplay is varied. There’s never a dull moment here. It Takes Two might also be a perfect pick for couples looking forward to strengthening their bonds, but yeah, a girls night will do fine.
A Way Out
Before It Takes Two there was A Way Out. It is a co-op only buddy action game where you play as two criminals who befriend each other and set out to seek revenge on a crime boss who did bad stuff to them.
It’s a pretty unique premise, for sure – when it comes to video games, of course. Two players must cooperate with each other to distract guards, for example. The game boasts lots of mini-games and pretty impressive action scenes. To be honest, it’s rough around the edges, but it’s pretty much a gem nevertheless. A Way Out is something you might genuinely enjoy with a friend, a fun title to complete in an evening or two.
The premise sort of sounds like Mario Bros.’, but with a medieval fantasy twist. As four knights, you need to rescue the exact same number of princesses, retrieve a precious magical crystal and defeat a dark wizard who’s behind all this.
So, you explore the overworld, complete levels and upgrade your characters thanks to light RPG elements in the game. Each of the colored knights has their own moves, combos and special abilities. It’s a fun title to try if you’re looking forward to some good old-fashioned hacking and slashing.
Now, this one might be a bit of a surprise here, since a lot of tabletop, analog games are competitive in nature, but there is one feature in this game that might make it fun for a bunch of co-op session: the RPG module.
That’s right, you can create your own dungeon here, even use your own assets if you’re so inclined, and have a fun evening with your gal pals. Tabletop Simulator has a very good chance of becoming a staple of your gaming girls nights thanks to lots of base options and tons of user-made content available through the Steam Workshop.
As you can see, it’s quite a selection of fun titles that should cater to pretty much every taste. Regardless of your choice, we think you girls will have lots of fun playing these. And if you’re looking for more, be sure to check out our marketplace as well for some extra options!
