Buy it, buy it, then buy another copy in case you lose the one you just bought. This is a simple to learn but difficult to master multiplayer co-operative game, where the players play against the game itself. Can you and your team use your different skills to travel round the world quelling outbreaks of plagues while trying to find cures by collecting card sets, doing it before the player deck runs out, or before there are too many outbreaks? There are many interesting and infuriating ways to lose Pandemic and only one way to win it. As a co-op game it's great to play with those that haven't played it before as everyone can learn at the same time. As a challenging game it puts up a really good fight. It's hard to win,and feels very rewarding when you do. But even losing is fun. Once you have learned to master the base game there are plenty of expansions to add that will change up the game play, present new challenges and provide new ways to play. What are you waiting for? buy it!
