Style: Pandemic Verified Purchase
Pandemic is a great introduction to the world of board games for all those people who expect you to bring out Monopoly or Cluedo when you suggest playing one. Pandemic is cooperative game for 2-4 players about travelling around the world and fighting four diseases and takes around an hour to play. This theme is portrayed strongly through all the elements in the box, from the different roles you can take, the disease cubes spreading if left unchecked to the epidemics that occur regularly throughout the game. The cooperative nature of the game leads to a sense of togetherness as you play, as well as promoting friendly conversation around the table, and will be a new experience for a lot of players.

The rules of the game are tight, simple enough to learn and convey a sense of being able to affect the state of the game without wholly relying on random elements. A single turn consists of a player taking four actions which include moving, treating a disease, building a lab and curing a disease. After this the player will draw two cards, most of which are useful but a few (4-6 as determined at the start of the game) are epidemics which cause the disease to intensify through making them more likely to spread. Finally 2-4 more cards will be drawn from a second deck to determine which cities either became or increased their levels of infection this turn. After this play passes to the next player and they follow the same turn structure.

The game is won when all four diseases are cured which you do by spending an action at a lab and discarding five cards of that diseases colour. Curing a disease does not, however, remove it from the game, if there are still cubes of that disease's colour on the board it can still spread.

This is a game of the most tremendous quality. 2-4 players take on roles such as 'scientist' or 'researcher' and try to rid the world of four diseases, represented by little coloured cubes that 'infect' major cities around the world. You work collaboratively rather than in opposition, so you either all lose, or all win. On each turn you carry out four actions such as moving around, treating the diseases, or even discovering a cure - but you also have to infect more cities. Can you treat/cure before the infections take over or an epidemic breaks out?! The instructions seem a little complex at first, but you soon get the hang of things. The board is a representation of the world, with spaces for cards and various markers for things like 'infection rate'. It looks good and everything is well-made and good quality. My nine-year-old had little trouble understanding how to play, and a collaborative game is a brilliant thing if adults are going to be playing together with children. We haven't won yet, but we still enjoy playing the game!

Easy to understand rules, perfectly made co-op style board game, thrilling action gameplay with one common goal to find cures for all 4 types of diseases
teaches quick and efficient strategy, teamwork, basic geography
Perfect as for couples so for whole family as you are not playing against each-other nobody walks away angry from table.

Limited amount of turns depending on how many player play as the player deck runs out of cards before the cures are found the game is lost and that is one of 3 ways to lose the game so you need to develop effective quick tactics on every turn and full cooperation with other players.
There are no dice in the game, you can do up to 4 actions per turn, so the game is very balanced and not purely based on luck.
If you fail to treat an infection in time you risk an outbreak, you can only have 7 outbreaks then its game over when the 8th comes or you risk running out of infection cubes that is the 3rd way to lose the game.

The game board and all pieces are very good quality and very detailed, lovely graphics, only cards and board are from card everything else is in plastic, there are many pieces but you get 2 compartments in the box and all pieces come in separate resealable plastic bags.
Took us 2 people 90minutes to play the 1st time so for experienced players it can be 30-45 minutes if played without expansion sets that are available separately.

First real co-op family board game I've played and really enjoyed it. I like the mechanism whereby the randomness of cards and infection rates and areas means it is playable over and over again. Played with 2 and 4 players and both as enjoyable. Teaching my daughter age 5 to play she just likes all the bits that comes with the game. Obviously her decision making is influence by me but then she does random moves and picks random character to use which makes the game more challenging.

If you're looking for an alternative to the normal board games you've been used to growing up, Pandemic is a great place to start.

You're working together with the other players to try and stop disease spreading around the world. You will need to plan your actions and make best use of your characters special powers if you're going to save the world! The game is simple enough to play with youngsters, but you can ramp up the difficulty to give even the most hardcore gamer a challenge.
