You'll love this game if you love the world of Pandemic but want something fast paced! My friends and I end up playing it more than once if we don't beat the clock because we need to win! It would be hard for this game to get boring or routine due to the different cities you can play with and different difficulty levels they provide but in addition to that they give you special crisis cards which can be additional side quests or barriers to completing missions as a fun way to mix it up. The rules are also very straightforward and it's easy to read them and find any answers to questions. Definitely recommend this game!

Really quick fun game, easy to learn, need a lot more practice to master. Wish the board actually laid flat.

Fun real-time crack at the pandemic universe

Fun game set in the universe of Pandemic. Real-time aspect is a fun stress at first but once you get the hang of it after a game or two it's not bad. Interesting strategic decisions that you have to make while under time pressure. Adding in the crisis events is a must once you take care of the base game.

Pretty good Pandemic game...We like it better than The Cure, the real time aspect was easier as we started with about 4 minutes and worked our way to 2 minutes. This was shipped in a box, not an envelope, so it came in great shape and quickly.

I had a chance to try this game out before release, and really enjoyed it. From opening the box to game play is not much time at all and the always helpful Rodney smith has a watch it played video out already that my group used to learn the rules. This game gives you the stress of pandemic in a much smaller and fast paced game. One critique I would have is that we stopped using the sand timer and started using our phones as the timer as no one was paying any attention to the timer in our group as we were worried about speed. This is a very minor thing and can be overcome with any two minute timer. I recommend some sort of thematic alarm to make things even more tense. The game was simple and also added extra elements to make things tougher so this game would easily scale for a group of serious gamers as well as people new to gaming. This seems like it would be a good gateway game to a time based mechanic as it adds an extra element without adding too much difficulty. Overall very enjoyable game, and would definitely play it again if I had the chance.

I've played this game about a dozen times over the weekend and plan to play it much more. The pieces, cards, dice and board are all very good quality, as far as plastic and paper goes but the best part about it is --- it's just a really fun game. There are a couple a downsides. The timed nature of the game doesn't lend itself well to jumping right into the game as a new player. The instructions are clear and the game is not over-complicated but trying to keep track of the few play rules while racing against the clock can be frustrating at first. The second is the timer, I have a kitchen timer with a buzzer that I started using after the first game. Once the dice get rolling the game draws you in so no one is watching the hourglass, and when someone does finally notice the sand has run out... it could have been 2 minutes, 5 minutes, 20 minutes - who knows.

Pandemic with a twist!

I was fortunate enough to play a review copy of the game and I had a blast with it! Like other varieties of Pandemic, this is a cooperative game that will require strong teamwork in order to meet your objective. But unlike other Pandemic games where you and your teammates can play at a slower pace to ensure the formation of a sound strategy, Pandemic Rapid Response is played at a frenzied pace. When the game starts you will have a couple cities around the world that need a certain type and amount of supplies, and every 2 minutes a new city is added. This game requires a great deal of thinking on your feet and planning ahead, because as soon as it's your turn you'll need to do your actions as quickly as possible. I've played a decent amount of board games over the years, but I can't recall one that got my heart racing as much as this one did. My friends and I had a blast with it, I'd recommend it to anybody.
