"Family or party fun!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This co-operative game is such fun and great for those of non-competitive nature. Work together with your team mates to cure and eradicate 4 diseases that threaten the world. Not your usual board game, you won't end up hating your fellow friends and family.

"An Tremendously Enjoyable Game"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

As simple to learn as Monopoly but infinitely better and more Strategic as all players are working Together to win the game. Bring this game out for people who used to enjoy playing a game but got kinda bored with the same old format over the years. This game will have them Demanding another play thru! It has re-ignited our love our Boardgames.

"Excellent co-operative game :)"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I couldn't recommend Pandemic more!

It's got great mechanics, there's always something happening and it creates great situations for everyone to talk about. Every game we've played so far has been tense and enjoyable!

Top marks :)

"Saving the world isn't that easy"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Imagine being able to work with your best friends, this game is hard work but so much fun. We love this game, I've got multiple groups of friends that play this game, and we love this game. I doesn't work if one person is more dominate. And some times you just have to let strategy mistakes be made if the consenous rules against you, after all there is always the next round to try and save the world again.

"Good co-operative fun"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Pandemic is an all-round great game. Game-play is clever, pieces and board are good quality, doesn't take too long to learn and set-up. My favourite aspect is the co-operative bit – it feels good to work as a team towards a goal. Whether you win or lose, it's still a good time. Definitely recommend adding this to your game library :)

"Great fun!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

So simple and yet different in many ways The theme is very much non violent, in fact you’re working to ave people, The rules can be learned very quickly but mastered through practice Every game is different that’s to a number of moving parts and playing with different groups Suspenseful, fun and rewarding!

Really fun co-op game! A different set up each time makes for so much replay ability.

"Well structured"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Is prevention better than cure- Try it out and find out.

This is a great cooperative game, but; as with all cooperative games, it is suffers from the problem that the smartest or most experienced player often ends up playing for everyone.

The team work aspect of the game makes it a completely different style of game. Great fun to play

"Great for two players"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I only recently began getting into modern board games and I was looking for a game that my partner and I could play together. Pandemic plays very well as a two player game. I like that it is a co-operative game too. We play as a team rather than opponents. The game is themed really well, and you really do feel like you are racing against the clock to save the world. The game is challenging but rewarding. You feel a great sense of accomplishment when you beat it :)

"The hype is real!"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Credit where credit is due, long after the hype I have finally got around to playing Pandemic and I can objectively say, the hype was real, it is a solid co-op game.

Pandemic is a game that rewards over-analysis and collaborative thinking as you need to get things done, you need to get them done quickly and you need to get them efficiently, because if you allow small problems to snowball the shit coming off the fan hits pretty quickly. Team-work is a must; find symbiotic relationships between the different roles to play most effectively as even then it won't be an easy, nor guaranteed win.

This is a nice escalation in the difficulty of Matt Leacock's work (Forbidden Island > Forbidden Desert > Pandemic).

Easy to learn, game play is straightforward. A great way to introduce new players to the world of co-operative gaming. So much fun to be had saving the worlds population from deadly diseases!

"Excellent cooperative game"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Pandemic is a cooperative game where players work together to save the world from four deadly diseases. I've had more fun losing this game than winning at many others. Pandemic lives up to its reputation of actually being fun as a two player game. Fifteen year old teenager enthusiastically played four games over the course of two days last weekend.

"Great team game"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This game is a good game to encourage team skills. You need to use the special ability of your team mates to win against the game.

"Too easy"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Easy to teach, Co-op game with lots of interaction between players, and a scalable difficulty. What's not to like.

"Great, chaotic fun"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Even with only two players, this is a great, fast game to play. It's fun trying to work to the strengths of your role while fearing that the next card will bring about a dreaded epidemic and blow all of your best made plans to hell.

The element of randomness can sometimes lead to a very easy game, but adding a few extra epidemic cards into the deck makes for a challenging and fun game.

"So much fun"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Have watched other people play, but though my family would enjoy a nice co cop game, so I picked up Pandemic and bought the figurines elsewhere, so once we started playing it was a challenge from the get go, it's probably the only game I I have so much fun losing in, family loved it and it's now in Each game night.
