Swedish Archaeologist Dr. Martin Rundkvist has posted a review of the Pandemic board game on his blog, Aardvarchaeology. Pandemic, from publisher Z-Man Games, is a cooperative board game in which the goal of the players is to stop four simultaneous outbreaks of disease from eliminating humanity. Rundkvist found the game easy to learn, exciting, and suspenseful. But he also found it difficult to accept the game’s theme. With a scientist’s skepticism, Rundkvist wondered why only four agents are available to fight the diseases, and why infectious agents tend not to travel between regions. For those of us, however, who look at it as a cool game with a unique theme, I suspect these won’t be a problem.
