Congrats, glad that Pandemic The Cure got the spotlight, it gets pulled out a fair amount at the home game table, love the quickness compared to the original game.

Although not familiar with Bora Bora, if given the chance I think I would play a time or two to see how it goes.

Congrats Dr. Wildcat. Thanks for sharing why the games are on your shelf!

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to gloat over my gold.

I think Pandemic base and Pandemic the Cure, although similar, are independent games – one doesn’t replace the other.

Pandemic base is all about solving an evolving puzzle, while the Cure is about staying alive. Both awesome, and both worth it.

Bora Bore sounds interesting. I have heard mixed reviews of the cure. Still trying to make my mind up as I have the base game.

Alright, for the sake of the metagame 🙂 …

Easily my favorite designer is Stefan Feld and Bora Bora is my favorite game of his. I love the decision making and the multiple paths to victory. I love that the dice add unpredictability and that other players can interfere a bit with my plans; both mean this is not multi-player solitaire.

As for Pandemic the Cure, it ended up being my favorite game from 2014. I was a big fan of Pandemic but I like that this speeds things up without to my mind losing much of the flavor. I am a big fan of co-ops and this ends up being gaming popcorn to me…can’t stop playing with just one.

@Dr Wildcat Congrats on being this week’s Sacred Shelf Spotlight! 🙂 You don’t have to make a speech, but it is always fun to play the metagame and share why these make your faves 🙂

I don’t have to make a speech do I?
