Pandemic Legacy: Season 2

23 8 1

A NEW MISSION
The world almost ended seventy-one years ago. A virulent plague came out of nowhere and ravaged the world. For three generations, small groups of survivors have struggled to keep the world alive. Operating from floating stations known as “havens,” they have maintained a loose network of the largest cities by delivering supplies to the mainland. But their efforts are no longer enough. Cities are falling off the grid and supplies are running low. The world needs a group of heroes to emerge and lead it through this crisis. In Pandemic Legacy: Season 2, this task has fallen to you. You must reestablish supply lines and get the world back on its feet. Along the way, the decisions you make affect future games. As you play, you will unlock new components, make new discoveries about your world, and stumble upon secrets that could change the course of history. No matter what happens, though, the world is counting on you. You are humanity’s last chance.

OFF THE GRID
Pandemic Legacy: Season 2 is a dynamic experience that sweeps players up in a desperate fight for survival. With a story arc that unfolds over the course of a year, the game takes players on an epic journey filled with dramatic twists and shocking revelations. Initially, it is your task to keep the mainland running by providing the cities on the grid with the supplies they need to fend off the plague. But soon you must venture into the unknown, scouting areas beyond the grid. As you do, new areas of the board become open for you to explore. These new regions bring you closer to learning what happened to the world and how it can help you complete your objectives. They also contain new threats that alter the course of your story. As the months pass, you must adapt to each new challenge if you want any hope of saving the world.

“Another Great Season!”

I love legacy games, and this one is among the best.

I’m now on my second time through Season 2. The first time was with my family, about a year ago. This second time through, my game group chipped in to share the cost of the game. It’s been long enough that I’ve forgotten quite a bit of what happens over the course of the game (so it’s still fun for me). I’m trying hard to avoid giving anything away that I do remember. It’s not always easy to do that, since decisions can have a big impact on how future games play out.

I can’t write a detailed review without spoiling the game, but if you liked Pandemic Legacy: Season 1, you’ll probably like this second season. Nothing I mention below is a spoiler – you’ll learn it during your first game.

1) I really enjoyed the new exploration aspect of season 2. You start with only a portion of the board revealed, and you explore new regions (adding stickers to the board when explored).

2) The main ongoing mechanic of Pandemic, strategically removing disease cubes from the board, has been replaced with adding supply cubes. That provides enough difference to make Season 2 more than just an ongoing story line.

3) The character sheets have scratch-off sections that randomize whether you get scars or whether your character dies (permanently). Avoid beginning your turn on a space with a plaque cube!!!

When I talk about the game to other people, I’m almost always asked how many games you play before you’re done. Like Season 1, you can play any number of “practice” games before starting the real campaign. After you begin the campaign, the minimum number of games is 12, assuming you win every one (very unlikely). The maximum would be 24 games, assuming you lost every one. The difficulty increases after you win, and decreases after you lose, so you’ll probably end up playing around 16-18 games.

Overall, I thought the game was very well balanced. I’m looking forward to Season 3!
