Currently ranked 1st in Board Game Geeks' list of the best games of all time, Pandemic: Legacy Edition, Season 1 is the evolution of the excellent co-operative board game, Pandemic, only this time it's played through 12-24 sessions or months.
The game-play begins very much like the original Pandemic but with new monthly objectives. Each month in the game, you have two chances to achieve that month's objectives. If you succeed, you win and immediately move on to the next month. If you fail, you have a second chance, with more funding for beneficial event cards.
During the campaign, new rules and components will be introduced. These will sometimes require you to permanently alter the components of the game; this includes writing on cards, ripping up cards, and placing permanent stickers on components. Your characters can gain new skills, or detrimental effects. A character can even be lost entirely, at which point it's no longer available for play.
These new elements add to the already excellent game, ramping up the excitement and tension as players battle to complete their objective as the narrative evolves based on the decisions they make.
Contains small parts. Unsuitable for children younger than 4 years old.
