Product Description

In Quarantine, players seek to build the biggest and most efficient hospital, while trying to keep ahead of the steady stream of incoming patients arriving at their doors. In this tense struggle for medical supremacy, players must infuse new life into their hospitals through the timely addition of special rooms and abilities. But beware the highly contagious patients! Infection can spread quickly, causing entire wards to be shut down under quarantine! In game terms Quarantine is a tile-laying game with each player having an entrance and lobby. More than fifty other tiles are available, with two each of 14 different "special room" tiles.  Players acquire these tiles and others via a novel "Price-Drafting" mechanic. Players set a price for the tiles they want to draft, but other players get the chance to buy them first, so you'll need to price your services accurately in order to supply your hospital while not overpaying. With dozens of tiles available, no two hospitals will be set up the same way.

This is a hospital game with no doctors and no nurses.

Expect to continuously refer back to the rule book or online FAQs to resolve differences in opinions in the game rules the first few times you play.

A nice light, short-medium length European-style game with direct interaction, which is a rarity. Each turn you get to expand your hospital and cure patients, while more patients come in. However, if you have a surplus of patients, or get a particularly nasty grey one, you can just toss it into your opponents hospitals instead. Best new mechanic is the bidding; instead of special rooms like a triage center having a fixed cost, you get to decide how much it costs, but the other players might buy it before you get the chance. The components are excellent quality, solid wood pieces and the cloth bag the patients come in is delightfully fuzzy. Overall it's a solid game, with a good theme and some clever mechanics to differentiate it from some drier Euros, definitely worth the buy.

I really enjoyed this game. I have only played it once & I think now that we have gotten past the set-up, it will be even more enjoyable. It takes one game to really understand the strategies involved. There is also an expansion pack out there (though not on Amazon)that I have already ordered. Give it a try.

I remember reading press about this game back before it was released and being very interested in it. I finally got a chance to play it and sadly the game is more interesting on paper than it is in action.

The game just feels so woefully incomplete and lazy. Like the designer set out to make a game and got this big chunk finished and just decided to wrap a bow around it and call it a day.

The basic premise of the game is a tile-laying experience where each player is trying to build a successful hospital while also sabotaging their opponents hospitals by quarantining their rooms. Each round 4 cubes are drawn from a bag, either patients or quarantine markers, and you can choose to put them in either your or another players hospital then take four actions that include many options from admitting and curing patients, buying new rooms for your hospital, and eradicating disease to unquarantine rooms.

I will say that the cube assignment mechanic is kind of new and refreshing. I don't see any reason why you would ever quarantine your own hospital rooms but choosing where to place patients is interesting. Curing them turns them into a kind of currency for this game so you want to put them in your line but at the same time they come in 4 different colors and you have a limited number of rooms that can admit them. So cluttering up your opponents lines with multiple patients of the same color can slow them down.

That's about all that is good I can say about the game though. Like I said, everything else feels incomplete and lazy. The rulebook is poorly written and had us scratching our head over some weird rule interactions. The tiles themselves were unbalanced and uninteresting.
