Four diseases have broken out in the world and it is up to a team of specialists in various fields to find cures for these diseases before mankind is wiped out. Players must work together playing to their characters' strengths and planning their strategy of eradication before the diseases overwhelm the world with ever-increasing outbreaks. For example the Operation Specialist can build research stations which are needed to find cures for the diseases. The Scientist needs only 4 cards of a particular disease to cure it instead of the normal 5. But the diseases are out breaking fast and time is running out: the team must try to stem the tide of infection in diseased areas while also towards cures. A truly cooperative game where you all win or you all lose.

Pandemic is and will always remain one of my favorite board games. This cooperative board game requires players to work together to prevent the spread of disease across the globe, a pandemic. The five different roles the players can adopt are all equally helpful, and all equally missed when the role is not in game play. There are three ways to lose at Pandemic, but only one way to win. My friends and I have played this game for seven hours straight, until we were finally able to save the world and defeat Pandemic. The game mechanics are extremely smart, elegant and incredibly addictive. You can watch Wil Wheaton and his friends play it on season 1 of Table Top on YouTube, courtesy of Geek and Sundry.
I have not yet conquered this game. But it is a lot of fun.
