Raise the stakes and face new challenges with the Pandemic: On The Brink Expansion from Z-Man Games and Asmodee, the expansion for the award-winning game Pandemic.
Has saving humanity become routine? Spice Pandemic up with new roles and events. Add a fifth player, try Legendary difficulty, or add an optional challenge: What if one disease is particularly nasty? Or, if a fifth disease is wreaking havoc? Or, even worse, if that fifth disease is being spread by a hidden Bio-Terrorist? Can your team work together to cure diseases in a world on the brink of disaster?
You’ve found the cures to four deadly diseases. But what happens when those diseases get stronger? Worse yet, what happens when someone spreads them intentionally?! Return to the world of Pandemic with On the Brink and prepare for the unexpected. The three challenges included with this expansion evolve the base game mechanics in exciting ways.
One disease might become a Virulent Strain and become more difficult to treat as the game goes on. Or you could introduce an unpredictable fifth disease with the Mutation challenge and watch it pop up in unexpected places. Finally, teamwork is even more important if a fifth player dons the mask of the Bio-Terrorist and spreads panic while moving secretly across the board. Try each challenge individually or combine them all for a major test!
Another Day On The Job
On the Brink also includes more of what made Pandemic an instant classic. With seven new roles and eight new event cards, the expansion injects even more variety into your globe-trotting adventures. Anticipate upcoming infections as the Troubleshooter or save the day with the extra actions granted by a clutch Borrowed Time.
Combined with the base game, these cards open new avenues for experimentation and improvisation in your quest to save humanity. And if finding cures is becoming routine even on the Heroic difficulty, you can always add the Epidemic card and tackle Legendary difficulty. With a whopping seven Epidemic cards, playing at Legendary will challenge even the most experienced Pandemic players.
