Staff Recommendation:

The Games Capital Recommends this because: Pandemic is such a unique experience. The cooperative nature of the game encourages teamwork and problem solving. With a choice of roles, each game will be a little different and will challenge you every time.

Pandemic is a game with a difference. Instead of each player competing with one another for victory, the players form a team and try to defeat the game. There are a number of cooperative board games around, but Pandemic probably does it best.

The aim of the game is to find cures for four deadly diseases that are threatening to wipe out life on our planet. Players travel the globe, treating disease and attempting to find cures.

Each player takes on a specific role with some kind of special ability that will help in certain circumstances. For example the Medic is faster at treating diseases, and the Researcher is more skilled at find cures.

As the game progresses more and more outbreaks occur and it becomes a race against time to find the cures.

This game has 3 different levels of play and is fiendishly hard to defeat.

Pandemic is for 2 to 4 players ages 10 and up and plays in about 60 minutes.

Great collab Review by Caizen

Fun, difficult, maddening - works well with families (have played with 8 year old who really got and loved the game) and friends alike! Still great to play with down to 2 players which is rare for such games. Strongly recommend! (Posted on 12/11/15)
Science can be great fun. Review by Paul

The definitive cooperative game. Play this before you tackle any more elaborate co-ops, for a clean, fast playing and novel experience. Most other co-operative games iterate on this blueprint, so you may as well experience the original. (Posted on 30/06/15)
Cool 'novelty' game with a mob mentality Review by Benjamin

Fun game with the right people in the right spirit, otherwise this cooperative game can turn into a dictatorship. The manual/game explanation could also do with some work. (Posted on 1/06/15)
Co-operative Review by Adin

I like the change of direction by making players work together to eradicate the different diseases in Pandemic. The strategy required to keep everything under control takes some getting used to and planning. The idea of working together however can come at a disadvantage to some players as the group may plan out your turn for you meaning you just move through mechanics without any free choice for your character.
