Forbidden Desert

55 out of 80 gamers thought this was helpful

This game has some obvious similarities to Forbidden Island. While the game definitely feels like a sequel to the smash hit board game, it definitely raises the stakes.

With the added difficulty of managing your water it is quite easy to get overwhelmed and have someone lose water. If someone loses all their water, they die, if they die, you lose. It is a super light co-op game, but it still can be difficult. My group is a bunch of people who have been playing games for a long time. Whenever we break out Forbidden Desert for just a light filler, it can take us down.

It will test you, pro and am alike.

I love this expansion. Beyond the new disease, the new roles, the new event cards for the player deck, the petri dishes, evil virulent strain Epidemic cards, there is a Bio-Terrorist.

If you have played a lot of Pandemic it can be difficult to play with people who are new to the game. It is a great game and you want them to play, but you don’t want to take over their turn and tell them what to do. Advice is fine, but the decision should always be theirs. If you are in this situation, you can now have the most experienced player play as the Bio-Terrorist.

The Bio-Terrorist is a fifth player that actually works against the players. It is a fantastically thematic and fun way of adding to an already fantastic game. Can’t recommend it highly enough.
