Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pandemic is a co-op game which is a pretty unique aspect to boardgames and makes for a different and fun experience where either all players win or lose as a team.
Pro Each experience is unique
With 5 possible player roles to choose from each game and the unique way that areas are infected, each playthrough is an entirely different experience.
Pro Design and gameplay successfully pulls players in
Pandemic successfully pulls off a very in depth experience that creates a large sense of self involvement in a made up world.
Pandemic is a pretty difficult game, there will be a lot of losses compared to wins. Though when there is a win it does feel righteously earned.
Con Can suffer from Alpha-gamer / quarterbacking issues
Due to the nature of co-op games like Pandemic, a strong willed or loud player can end up dictating everyone else's turns for them, especially in situations where there are clearly better decisions to be made. This can lead some people to feel like they aren't actually 'playing' so much as being told what to do.
