Great Noncompetetive Game for Two
June 26, 2010

My wife and I have lots of board games but we don't usually take much time to play games...until I got this game for her birthday. We just finished playing six games TONIGHT. We usually limit ourselves to two games a night and over time have learned to win about fifty percent of the time but tonight it took us 6 games to win one. We really enjoy the non-competetiveness and team approach to figuring out how to cure the viruses before they do us in. This game is easy to start and learn but it takes a while to master the strategy and never gets old or boring. We look forward to playing this game with others to see how the strategy changes.

Challenging, Fun, Replayable

Introduced this to our game night players who are used to competitive games against each other. After some skepticism, they played and immediately wanted to try again. Lots of table talk and strategy, but the game play is easy to learn and is the design of the game makes each game different. I've played lots of games and introduced new games to lots of friends and family, and this is definitely a keeper. I highly recommend it.

I just want to Win a game - please. please.
March 13, 2010

I won't go into the details of the game rules here - I know other people have done that already. So I'll just go into into the fun FACTOR here, and I would rate this game as very FUN. We have only played about 4 times and have yet to beat the diseases that are ravaging the world. I don't know what it is exactly that draws me in, but every time this game wins I just want to play it again and try to defeat those nasty old germs. It just seems to have that type of addictive play quality that a good video game has, but with the face to face social interaction of a great board game. I just hope that one day we can walk away knowing we've saved mankind from a massive Pandemic instead of being defeated by those viruses.
