Product Description:

Pandemic: Legacy takes everything that makes the original Pandemic so wonderful and turns it into a "persistent campaign" in an ever-changing series of scenarios. The basic gameplay is virtually unchanged in the beginning; players take turns flying to disease hotspots, treating infection, and searching for a cure. But instead of a self-contained 45 minute game, Legacy is played over the course of 12-24, 45-minute "Months" (or sessions) as the story-arc unfolds. Instead of packing everything up and starting again, the game continues from the last Month played. New "Legacy" cards are drawn, adding rules and creating events, but there's no reset button! This means that components will be altered during the course of play: cards will be drawn on or ripped up; characters can gain skills, penalties, or even die during the course of the campaign. Once you make it through all 12 months, that's it! Please note that the components for Legacy Season 1 are identical to Pandemic with key additions. That means you can learn and play the base game of Pandemic without using the Legacy rules! Comes in a Blue theme, identical to #017380 below apart from the design.

Category Description for Pandemic Game:

If you think cooperative games are just for kids, this brilliant game will change your mind! 2-4 players work together as members of a highly skilled task force as they try to cure four infectious diseases spreading throughout the different regions of the world. Each player may perform four actions per turn including treating a disease, traveling to another city, or passing a card to another player. Randomly chosen role cards assign occupations to each team member at the beginning of the game and provide different advantages to the basic actions, based on the unique skill set of that member. With outbreaks looming and epidemics increasing the rate of infection at unknown intervals, you'll need seamless teamwork and careful planning in order to discover the cures and save the world. Built-in features such as random shuffling, five different role cards, and a flexible amount of epidemic cards provide a different game every time and allow for easier to harder levels of play. A very cleverly designed game that will take all your wits and may still beat you!

Nail biting Pandemic game that does not disappoint!
Just as much fun as I was hoping. Two of our best friends own this game and said it was wonderful. It does not disappoint. It’s best you have some knowledge of the original Pandemic, but you don’t need to have experienced the “on the brink” expansion pack however. In fact I think it’s a little more fun if you have never played with “on the brink”. We’re only three months into the 12 month game but we’re having a great time. Having said that, it’s been one real nail biting and anxiety producing ride.
I enjoyed getting it from rainbow resource company because they shipped incredibly fast and the price was more reasonable than Amazon. Furthermore Amazon is taking several weeks to deliver anything due to the real pandemic.
