So something I've always wanted to talk about are board games and today I thought i would share my thoughts on a certain game that is one of my favourites and one that my friends and I constantly pull out, which is Pandemic.
Pandemic is a game which you take a character and try and save the world from four diseases, which are unnamed so that you can put your own creativity, if you are like me, and name them yourself.You could go Realistic like Zika virus or Science Fiction like the Zombie Plague.
The character you take on this world curing adventure will always change from game to game because you pick at random. You have unique abilities with each character you choose . An example of this is the medic who can cure a disease with one fowl swoop.
The game is a mix of strategy and luck. Wishing for no epidemic cards which has you fill a city with three diseases and if by chance that city gets hit again it would in turn outbreak to surrounding cities which is only one of the ways you can lose at this game.
Many times my friends and I have lost to this game in this very way or we would run out of a certain disease which is another way of losing. One of the most intense games we have had was when we had only one more outbreak left and we were on the last cure and by the end of my turn if we had any cities out break that would mean Game Over. Luckily we had the cure on the next turn so my one buddy played an event card which let us skip infection and we ended up winning on the next turn. So we had to look at the next four cards just to see if we would have lost if he hadn't played that card and low and behold Bangkok was the next city about to get hit. It would have had an out break and we would have lost.
I have purchased this game a couple of years ago and my friends and I still play it. we can't get enough of it. It is a game we like to play after a crazy battle of Munchkin or Catan. Since it is a Co-Op game we end up getting of each others nerves. There are three expansion games as well which i have yet to purchase but since we all love the game i might just have to do just that. If you have a play group that likes team work based games i suggest picking this one up.
