PANDEMIC: When any resemblance to existing or past situations is totally coincidental...

Image

That's life...
You don't always choose what is happening around you; sometimes for the worst and sometimes for the best.
And speaking of the best- today we are releasing... [drumroll please]...

PANDEMIC: the famous board game by Matt Leacock!
So it is your turn to save planet earth... again?!

The game won too many awards worldwide to display them here. Although many of you probably already know about the game, we want to drop a few lines about the game for those who don't.

In Pandemic, several virulent diseases have broken out simultaneously all over the world! The players are disease-fighting specialists whose mission is to treat disease hotspots while researching cures for each of the four plagues before they get out of hand.

The game board depicts several major population centers on a map. On each turn, a player can use up to four actions to travel between cities, to treat infected populaces, to discover a cure, or to build a research station. A deck of cards provides the players with these abilities, but sprinkled throughout this deck are Epidemic cards that accelerate and intensify the diseases' activity. A second, separate deck of cards controls the "normal" spread of the infections.

Taking a unique role within the team, players must plan their strategy to mesh with their specialists' strengths in order to conquer the diseases. For example: the Operations Expert can build research stations which are needed to find cures for the diseases and which allow for greater mobility between cities; the Scientist needs only four cards of a particular disease to cure it instead of the normal five— but the diseases are spreading quickly and time is running out. If one or more diseases spreads beyond recovery or if too much time elapses, the players all lose. If they cure the four diseases, they all win!

What's up with the Board Game Arena version, Doc?
The 2013 edition of Pandemic you can play on BGA includes two new characters—the Contingency Planner and the Quarantine Specialist—not available in earlier editions of the game.

You can play it here in Training mode to learn about the game mechanics, but you will also be able to choose a few options depending on your own preferences: 3 difficulty modes with closed or open hands, a Solo mode with different characters, etc.

And because we know you will ask: There are currently no expansions included. ;)

Take a look at the game right now here:

The whole team is pleased to offer you a larger cooperative game now on Board Game Arena during these times, where you can join forces to win a game or two against Pandemic.

Nothing would have been possible without the help of the publisher, Z-Man Games, and their team-members: you rock!
Of course, our warm thanks go to designer Matt Leacock, and our wonderful developer, Moof, for bringing such a deep game to the platform.

As usual, the game has been tested over and over, but do not hesitate to post any bugs on the Bug Report page. Also, remember that you can help translate the game from the Community pages, for... the community.

BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE!

During the next few weeks, we will offer an opportunity for you to play against the Z-Man Games team, and maybe against MATT LEACOCK himself!
If it happens, you will also be able to enter a raffle for some prizes like [redacted].

So keep an eye on our social network accounts Twitter, Facebook or Instagram, as well as the official PANDEMIC page on Facebook : HERE.

Of course, there's even more coming.
And as the summer holidays are quite close now, why not doing a SUMMER GAMES CALENDAR?
(You didn't see that coming, did you?)

YES !
A calendar like the one we did last winter.

Everyday, a new game will be released for the next 62 days!
THAT'S 62 NEW GAMES TO COME!
Of course, they are not as big as this one, but they deserve your attention as well. Go on the BGA front page every day to click on the calendar and dig out the new games!

And if you come open them daily, you will unlock some very special achievements to show off on your account page.

We will, of course, keep the weekly releases with more popular games, but we think that it is a fun way to show off some other new games that deserves your attention.

That's it for now, have fun and see you next week!
