I have always been a gamer, but mostly of the video game kind. However, I also am a fan of board games and having been someone that attends Gen Con every year I love trying out new board games. Pandemic is a game that I myself have actually had the pleasure of playing. It is a game that will find you working together with your fellow players to try and fight four different diseases all across the country and try to stop them from spreading and wiping out the human race. This game requires players to work together and work off of the strengths of each specific player. Each player is called a “Specialist” and has their own functions in the game unique to that player. You will find yourselves trying to come up with a solution to win the game and eradicate the diseases. Pandemic is a game I absolutely highly recommend that also has expansions as well that you can purchase to add to the game. Players can either play as a two person team or as a full team of four players. There will also be some challenges along the way such as the diseases spreading to other countries and also researching a cure which can take some time.
