Four diseases have broken out in the world and it is up to a team of specialists in various fields to find cures for these diseases before mankind is wiped out. Players must work together playing to their characters' strengths and planning their strategy of eradication before the diseases overwhelm the world with ever-increasing outbreaks. For example the Operation Specialist can build research stations which are needed to find cures for the diseases. The Scientist needs only 4 cards of a particular disease to cure it instead of the normal 5. But the diseases are out breaking fast and time is running out: the team must try to stem the tide of infection in diseased areas while also towards cures. A truly cooperative game where you all win or you all lose.
As skilled members of a disease-fighting team you must keep four deadly diseases at bay while discovering their cures. You and your teammates will travel across the globe treating infections while finding resources for cures. The clock is ticking as outbreaks and epidemics fuel the spreading plagues and you must work as a team to succeed. Can you find all four cures in time? The fate of humanity is in your hands! The 2013 edition of Pandemic includes two new characters ? the Contingency Planner and the Quarantine Specialist ? not available in earlier editions of the game.
Brand new challenges are waiting for you

Save the human kind from nasty diseases using the different skills from the characters before the diseases take over the world. Players work as a team to eradicate four different viruses and find the cure for all of them. ItÂ´s a race against time where evey decision makes a difference.

Pandemic is a great gateway cooperative game. I'd recommend it for those who have enjoyed games like Forbidden Island and are looking for a step up in difficulty with a more mature theme. It also, happily, will allow you to springboard in to Pandemic Legacy. This is a fantastic game in its own right however. Lovely with two players.

It's like a giant puzzle which has random events and twists to throw you off when you just think you've figured it all out. It's an incredible game that I have played with different player counts. With two players the game becomes easier being able to slowly cure the earth but something could crop up across the globe and no one anywhere near to fix it. With more players things don't trend to appear far away but can just grow around you. It is easy to learn and anyone can play, I'd definitely suggest it.

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!
