Bore dydd Sadwrn yng Nghynulliad Blynyddol Gwerin daeth 34 ohonom ynghyd i chwarae gêm Co-opVille. Pentref dychmygol yw Co-opVille a'r bwriad yw dysgu plant a phobl ifanc sut mae cwmnïau cydweithredol yn gweithio drwy chwarae rhan yn un o'r gwmnïau'r pentref. Roedd y gwerithgaredd hwn yn rhan o brosiect Co-op Op sy'n cefnogi pobl ifanc i lunio eu dyfodol ar batrwm gydweithredol trwy Gymru. Wedi treulio rhan gyntaf y gêm yn dysgu am gydweithredu a cheisio deall rheolau'r gêm, ar ôl toriad byr, roedd yn amser rhoi cychwyn ar y masnachu.
