Product Description:

This thoughtful expansion provides three challenging twists to the basic game play. It also has six new and one redesigned role card, eight new special event cards, rules for adding a 5th player, and the hardest difficulty level yet! In The Virulent Strain challenge, one of the four diseases becomes even more deadly and difficult to control. The Mutation Challenge adds a fifth unique disease to the game. It's one player pitted against all the others in The Bio-Terrorist Challenge, when one player works secretly to spread disease while the others focus on discovering the cures. An absolute winner for any Pandemic gamer!

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! Expansions require the Pandemic (#034499) base game to play.

We very much enjoy Pandemic, and a friend of ours who has played all the expansions suggested this one as the next one to get. Rainbow Resource has the best price we've seen.

I was asked to buy it for someone as a gift.
David W on Nov 29, 2020
I bought this along with the base game because it has additional roles for players to use.

More advanced, with two new boards, in this expansion to our beloved game, we must trace diseases to their source. Now it can jump from animal to human and we have greater control with the ability to quarantine. Both of these remind us of our current pandemic so we are eager to play and see what else we learn. Cooperation, communication, geography, logic, leadership and fun all in one.

Pandemic is a great cooperative game
This expansion pack really expands the original Pandemic game providing a lot more flexibility and interesting ways to customize your game experience to the level and complexity that your team of players looking to eliminate the pandemic want to tackle. I definitely recommending adding it to your required base Pandemic game set.
