You are the only team capable of saving humanity, think you've got what it takes as you play this fast paced & thrilling board game? Pandemic is a co-operative game where you and other players come together to stop the spreading of deadly viruses from across the globe!
Work together, cooperate & work fast as you share knowledge, treat diseases, & fly all over the world to prevent outbreaks and slow down the epidemic. The fate of humanity is in your hands!
Start the game by placing the game board on a flat surface & placing the research station & four types of disease cubes on the board. Once the research station has been set up in Atlanta and all the disease cubes have been evenly distributed across the board you can start the game.
Remember to use as many epidemic cards as you want the game to be challenging. Place the epidemic cards inside the player deck & proceed to place the player deck on the space provided on the board. Remember to always cooperate & work together & try and find a cure to save the world. The fate of all humans lies in your hands.
This game is so much fun! Best game I've played in a while. It probably takes 45 minutes to get through one game and then you will be hooked. Me and my friends played 4 games straight the first time we learned. Great team building game!
Great cooperative game - interesting complexity in the roles and the randomness of the draw makes each game interestingly different. Takes one game to get the hang of it and then after that you can really get into it. I don't think there's ever been a better time to play this game - equally cathartic and enjoyable with a constant sense of urgency throughout the game. Would be difficult for young kids but a good challenge for middle school age through adults (just an assumption not actual experience).
I love that in this game you play together instead of playing against each other. It seems hard the first time you play because there’s a lot of rules, but it’s a great challenge and you can make the game easier or harder! It’s always a different adventure each time you play
I love this game and bought it for myself for my birthday. It arrived two days early, exactly on my birthday, so that was a really nice surprise. However, the game was missing the blue cubes and instead had double the black cubes. I ended up painting them because I really wanted to play and didn’t want to hassle with returns. Easy fix, but pretty disappointing considering I didn’t get a discount or refund. I’ve seen this before with another Pandemic box at a discount store, so I suspect this happens pretty frequently. Be prepared to have missing pieces if you purchase.
It takes quite a bit of time figuring out but can be fun once you do. Takes strategy of all who are playing. Take a picture of the board so you are not wasting time trying to figure it out the next time you play.
This game was recommended by friends a while back and once I got it and played it with friends we knew it was a winner. It's a great game of cooperation and requires players to acknowledge each other's special talents (each character has a special talent). If you love games, this should be in your collection to enjoy with friends and family.
