I think my absolute favorite game. . . will play it whenever it hits the table. . . have been playing it since it came out in 2007. . . is Pandemic. It is one of the most masochistic games out there. Losing is something you need to accept up front and then those moments when you save the world are so much more special. So to tie into our amazing theme of SCIENCE, we will be channeling our inner scientific saviors and curing the world!

Real World & Online Tabletop Game – Pandemic (2007)

pandemicWork cooperatively with your friends and/or family to save the world from deadly diseases. Buy the expansions of the game to add in even more problems, such as mutations and a biological terrorist. Even more expansions add actual mixing stations and more nifty science-stuff (Pandemic: In the Lab).

Choose your characters and prepare yourself to work together to achieve greatness. Cure and sunset all the diseases before there are too many outbreaks and you might as well start looking for zombies. A classic game and the replay ability is endless. Play any variation of the game that you want, including the Pandemic: Legacy (2015), Pandemic: Contagion (2014), and Pandemic: The Cure (2014). Immerse yourself and get down with the sickness.

For those of you looking to play digitally, you can find it in the iTunes app store or you can get a free JAVA application game, but it’s solo only. You can also play it on BrettSpielwelt.
