Fantastic cooperative game,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pandemic - Game in English (Toy)
This is a fantastic game, and makes a refreshing change from competitive game play. The twist is that all the players play together against the game. There are three difficulty levels, depending on how many epidemic cards you place in the pack at the start of the game, and it also gets harder the more players that play, so it's really simple to tailor the difficulty of the game to what you want.
There are lots of different options on how to play the game, but not so many that it takes ages to learn the rules, and every game will be different and demands a different approach.
I have played this several times in different contexts and with varying amounts of players and it has excelled in all of them. Because it is cooperative it's great at getting conversation going as everyone chips in with their own ideas about the best plan of action, but the excitement remains because there's still the opponent of the game (which can be fiendishly hard!)
The only health warning with this game is that if a member of the group is overly vocal and alpha-male it can ruin it, so choose your playing partners carefully!
The most original and fun board game brought out in a long time.
