Pandemic - a word we are all-too-familiar with by now. Most of us here in the United Kingdom have had our lives affected to some degree by the Covid-19 pandemic, and many have lost loved ones. Nations across the world have come together in unity to share knowledge and tackle the dreaded virus.
So, how would it feel to turn the tables and beat a pandemic for once? In the board game Pandemic you must work together with your friends as one unified, fighting force to be reckoned with and cure the world of a deadly pandemic (sound familiar?). Each player must try to control the spread of the virus and its various mutations and outbreaks within his/her continent, and help your teammates to do the same (if you can spare the manpower!).
Here at Game Gecko, Pandemic is one of our all-time favourites. In fact, that's one of the reasons we decided it should be in our very first 'Game of the Month' blog post! It takes team work and strategic thinking to win this wonderfully exciting game. What's more, it is a real challenge. In our experience, we have lost to the game more times than we have won!
So if you're looking for a challenging, tense, unpredictable and uniting game to introduce to the table, look no further!
And of course, as always, if you have any issues when learning the game, or have questions about the game, we are here to help at the click of a button (or the tap of a screen!).
