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.
