Pandemic

After forbidden island, I really fell in love with cooperative gaming. Last night, I played pandemic with my friends.

It's quite similar to forbidden island but also a wee bit darker. (That's my imagination at play there)

The world is on the verge of an outbreak. You play on a map of the world and all the places are marked with different colors. You have to find a cure for each disease (represented by a color) and then eradicate it. Once a disease is eradicated, it never comes back.

However, eradication takes strategy and we have to work together and use our four actions. To make things difficult, we have epidemic cards that can really shift the balance and reinfect places you just cleaned. Definitely interesting if not for how dark it was.
