Quick Takes: 2-4 players 60 minutes Ages 14+ Level 3 (advanced, looking for a challenge)About the game:
If you love Pandemic, try this standalone game that combines what you love about Pandemic with a fresh new style and theme!
The year is 1962, at the height of the Cold War. Players take on the roles of medical specialists-turned-CIA-agents to investigate and prevent the development of a deadly Soviet bioweapon. Travel the world using carefully constructed aliases, seeking out the enemy and uncovering their secrets. Legacy is in the title, and appropriately so as this is a legacy game. Your decisions from one mission carry over into another and change the game play. As you complete missions over the course of 12 months, every success, failure, and decision will determine the course of history. Can you save humanity from this dangerous new biothreat?
We at Board's Edge Games carry very few follow-ups or expansions to games, but Pandemic is a special case for several reasons. First off, as we know, 2020 is the year of (the) Pandemic, so the timing of the Legacy series couldn't be better. Also, this is a completely stand-alone game, so you do NOT need to own Pandemic or any of the other Pandemic Legacy games to play this one. If you've played Pandemic more times than you can count this year, try this one for an exciting new twist.Why we chose this game for Board's Edge:
- Cooperative - play with your friends, not against them
- Hot title - game has been anxiously awaited by fans
- Strategy - this game gets you thinking
