  1. I liked your review thank you..however the most passionate aspect of the 1st 2 was that we could only play the game once. Stickers and opening things made game play intense and permanent. Is this game one can be played multiple times?

  2. Excellent review guys! It addressed my concern whether just my wife and I would enjoy the game (2 players). We're also new to Pandemic. We're definitely picking this game up now 🙂

  3. Very good review, that covers all the questions a Pandemic fan might have! Thank you!

  4. Great video! My family has played this game multiple times now and it's really fun. Definitely a great buy for us.

  5. I'd personally compare the difference between Reign of Cthulhu and regular Pandemic to be about equivalent to the difference between various versions of Ticket to Ride (and expansions – There's more difference between regular TTR and UK/Pennsylvania as there is between Regular and Europe), so absolutely agree that there's room in a collection for both if you like the system. I just wish that instead of always Cthulhu, and always the same deck of old ones and effects, we got three or four old ones to stop each with a corresponding deck tailored to them, both because it's a bit wonky on the theme for me (If Itaqqua gets to our world, that's… Kind of a big deal, not an inconvenience in stopping Cthulhu rising from the deep, as it's presented in this game – though that's something you can just ignore in actual play) and because that would have made it so easy for them to do small box expansions and allowed us to further customize the play experience aside from which investigators and what difficulty – which old one, and the corresponding deck as they come closer to rising.

  6. I didn't care for the original Pandemic theme at all. This one seems to have cured that for the most part. Still not completely sure, will keep an eye on it, but it looks like its a possibility. Then again, Mechs and Minions is looking pretty hot as well, Reign of Cthulhu has some stiff competition…

  7. Nicely done. I hadn't even heard of this – and now I want a copy!

  8. Great Video 🙂 now im really curious to try it 🙂

  9. Loved the video. I am looking for co-op games to play with my girlfriend. What would you recomend? It can be competetive also, but i would prefer co-op.

  10. I love HP Lovecraft, but I hate Cthulu Mythos, I hate the made up stories by others. I've tried to get into them, but no
