I mentioned the other day that I spent some time at the Kearney Area Gamefest this past weekend. Despite my unfortunate migraine on Saturday afternoon I had a good time. Many thanks to Casey Petersen for telling me about the event.
While there I had to opportunity to discover several new games. One of my favorites is a game called Pandemic. Unlike most board games, Pandemic is a cooperative game, i.e. the players work together against the game rather than compete against each other. The purpose of the game is for the team of specialists to cure the world of four virulent diseases. It’s not easy. Unless the team works together very well, the diseases will outbreak time after time and the game will defeat the players.
This is one I’d like to add to my game cupboard.
