Can your team work together to cure diseases in a world on the brink of disaster?
- For Ages 13+

Has saving humanity become routine?
Spice Pandemic up with new roles and events. Add a fifth player, try legendary difficulty, or add an optional challenge:
- What if one disease is particularly nasty?
- Or, if a fifth disease is wreaking havoc?
- Or, even worse, if that fifth disease is being spread by a hidden Bio-Terrorist?
Three Additional Challenges
Virulent Strain Challenge
In the Virulent Strain Challenge, a disease has gone out of control in nasty, unpredictable ways.
The Mutation Challenge adds a fifth purple disease to the game that appears in unpredictable ways. Players must either cure all five diseases or cure the four other diseases and have no purple cubes on the board.
The Bio-Terrorist Challenge pits one player, the Bio-Terrorist, against the others, seeking to create panic throughout the world with a fifth disease. The Bio-Terrorist wins if the other players lose and there is at least one purple disease cube on the board.
Seven New Roles
On the Brink includes seven new role cards with the matching pawns.
The Bio-Terrorist Role card can only be used when playing the Bio-Terrorist Challenge. The other six Role cards can be added to the base game Role cards before shuffling and dealing 1 Role card to each player. The new Role cards include:
- The Bio-Terrorist
- The Archivist
- The Containment Specialist
- The Epidemiologist
- The Field Operative
- The Generalist
- The Troubleshooter
Eight New Events
This expansion includes eight new events cards!
Add these new event cards to the five base game event cards, shuffle and play. Add two event cards per player to the Player cards, before shuffling and dealing Player cards to each player.

I held off on this until Pandemic had gotten a little stale for me and my friends. Then by getting this add on it was like I fell in love with this game all over again.
There are three new ways to play the game;
A virulent strain, which adds an extra twist to the epidemic cards. Some of these are one off events, but others stay with you the entire game.
A mutation, this adds a 5th cube colour that does not spawn in the traditional fashion and is therefore much more unpredictable.
A terrorist, which is where one person acts in secret to try to bring about your destruction by placing a 5th colour cube all over the board. The main effect of this is to add some competition to this classic co-op game.
Although I'm not a fan of the terrorist game it is nice to add a third way to play the game, but saying that the other two additions are simply awesome. I doubt after playing virulent strain you will ever play normal epidemic cards again. And just when you think it is getting easy you can combine mutation and virulent together to really challenge you!
In all, quite simply a must buy
The quality of the pieces is really nice - the petri dishes add a nice touch and the new box insert is set up to store all new and old pieces neatly in one box. They set provides you with a sticker or a card to put on your board for the cure spot for the new disease so you can choose to keep your old board pristine.
If you hadn't realised, this IS an expansion and you NEED the original Pandemic to play it!
First impressions... strong, sturdy box (slightly smaller than the original). Open it up to find additional role cards, purple disease markers, a chunky pad for the bioterrorist and some additional player counters. Oh, not to forget some bespoke petri dishes to keep all your disease cubes in. The best thing? All of the original components fit into the new box, which is more durable and takes up less space.
The add-on brings additional scenarios to the game - the virulent strain (different epidemic cards with special effects and remains in play features for one virulent strain), the purple mutation disease, and the bio-terrorist for those competitive souls in every gaming group that just do not want to play as part of the team...
The scenarios have breathed new life into the game for us and it is benefiting from its own little renaissance. I think it will be a while before we need to get Pandemic In The Lab.
5 stars for Z Man Games. This is a high quality, affordable add-on for a great cooperative game that lasts a reasonable time but is complicated enough to keep the group thinking. The quality of the components and the positive impact on and reinvigoration of gameplay makes the expansion good value for money.
