Z-Man Games Declare a State of Emergency for Pandemic

November 8, 2014 by dracs

Z-Man Games have announced that they will be coming out with another expansion for Pandemic, the game where you and your friends battle to stop the world being overrun by disease. Now things have gotten even harder as they declare a State of Emergency.

Pandemic State of Emergency

According to Z-Man Games’ announcement, this expansion will bring us three new challenges to deal with in our games of Pandemic.

The Hinterlands Challenge
Where the diseases are spreading from animals to humans…

The Emergency Events Challenge
Where unpredictable Events have nasty effects on the game…try to use Quarantines to stop the spread of disease across the board…

The Superbug Challenge
Where a fifth disease that cannot be treated threatens the world! Produce vaccine doses after finding its cure in order to fight off this threat. You must eradicate the superbug disease to win. This is NOT for the faint of heart…

Pandemic is a constant favourite in our local board game group and its various expansions do help to mix the game up and prevent it getting stale. Pandemic: State of Emergency definitely promises to be a challenging addition to the game, perfect for both hardcore gamers and those just looking for something a little more difficult than usual. I have enough trouble beating this game, so it will be cool to see what developments these bring to the table.

Do you enjoy Pandemic? Will you add State of Emergency to your set?
