Pandemic: State of Emergency

| Published: 2015
Expansion for Pandemic
32 11 2

Three new challenges await you in this new expansion for Pandemic:

  • The Hinterlands Challenge: the diseases are spreading from animals to humans…
  • The Emergency Events Challenge: unpredictable Events have nasty effects on the game…try to use Quarantines to stop the spread of disease across the board…
  • The Superbug Challenge: a fifth disease that cannot be treated threatens the world! Produce vaccine doses after finding its cure in order to fight off this threat. You must eradicate the superbug disease to win.

This expansion is NOT for the faint of heart...

“Modular awesomeness”

I love pandemic, and anything expands to it, I grab immediately.

I’ll admit, I had a bit of buyers remorse with this expansion, but it faded rapidly. The pricepoint is a bit high (almost as much as the standalone game), but it’s well worth it.

It includes the following modules – any of which can be played with just Vanilla Pandemic – On the Brink and/or In the Lab are not required, but also great, and compatible with these:

Hinterlands – More board = more awesomeness – adds the ability for diseases to be spread into, and from, animals in the hinterlands via chance (a die)

Emergency Events – In the Vanilla Pandemic, all events are good, perhaps, great. These ones are bad, perhaps terrible, and remain in effect until a new crisis is to be dealt with…

Superbug Challenge – A disease which cannot be treated, or cured, without the help of a special vaccine factory.

Quarantines – Have some actions to spare after you’ve gone somewhere and need to stay? Look no further! Quarantines are there to help you!

There are new roles – some have special abilities which work great with some of the modules (Veterinarian is great for the Hinterlands), while others are great at everything (for example – First Responder)

The new components are plastic, which is a bit of a bummer for wood enthusiasts, but not a big deal.

Conclusion – Add all the modules, add one, or add none, more Pandemic is always a good thing! Teach the basic version, then add to your hearts content. Lovely!
