Best way for our 8-person co-op household to manage our money?

I live in a cooperative household in California - 8 people total - and we have a house bank account that we use to pay for communal food, toilet paper, etc. as well as rent.

Co-op fail?

Co-op question. We contributed $400 (fully vested!) to a food co-op that may never happen. It hasn't been able to secure funding through a USDA loan, or by any other method. It's been about four years. Can I take an income tax deduction?

My spouse and I like to play PS3 games together. Keeping in mind that we've run through Resistance: Fall of Man 5 times now on Superhuman and are getting bored with it, what are your favorite PS3 games which allow COOPERATIVE local play (2 or more players)? I've checked previous threads, but not seen PS3 recommendations. Thanks, hive mind.
