Product Description

From the Manufacturer

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?.

Product Description

This expansion to Pandemic includes new event cards, new role cards, rules for five players, and optional game challenges to increase the difficulty, such as the 'Legendary' difficulty level, the Virulent Strain challenge, the Mutation challenge, and the Bio Terrorist challenge. These challenges can be mixed together to make the game even harder.Virulent Strain challenge: makes one disease become particularly deadly in unpredictable ways.Mutation Challenge: adds a fifth (purple) disease that behaves differently than the original four.Bio Terrorist Challenge: pits one player against the others!You may also play with 5 players and play on Legendary level!Other components include petri dishes to store your diseases and pawns.On the Brink version differences:116 cards from the base game (with some corrections) only 7 pawns (small size)On the Brink requires a copy of Pandemic to play; it is not a stand alone game.

I just received my copy of the expansion today and promptly tried it out. The first thing to notice is the quality of the box itself. If you own the 2nd edition of the base game already, you'll know what I mean when I say that the box is of a much higher quality than most other board games. Inside is everything listed in the description, but there are now designated spaces for all of the petri dishes, pawns, research stations, cards, and the various wooden tokens used in the game. It also has extra spaces for what I can only imagine will be coming in the second expansion, In the Lab, due out in August. This is a quality product from Z-Man Games.

The game itself... if it wasn't addicting enough already, the expansion allows so much variation to prolong the fun. My sister and I have played the game to the point where it was almost impossible to lose on normal, and we were able to vastly tilt the odds in our favor for heroic difficulty. Now our strategy doesn't work as nicely, and there are so many more factors to take into consideration. Further, there is now a legendary difficulty for an almost impossible challenge (challenge accepted).

Overall, I am very pleased with this expansion, and I look forward to what is coming with In the Lab!

This is a great expansion for Pandemic -- I like it much better than the newer In The Lab expansion personally. If you like the base game, you'll love the expansion.

BUT, watch out for price gouging here. Currently, both sellers are at $80 or more -- give me a (bleep'ing) break! I don't know what they are smoking, but that is highway robbery. Search elsewhere for reasonable pricing. (MSRP Is about $30 or $35 I think, and there's lots of other retailers online).

My wife received this expansion for Christmas, and I have to say, it is my personal favorite. The two expansions each offer 3 new variations of play. We chose to try the bio-terrorist last. It was my brother who chose to be our 'terrrist' first. By the end of the game, feelings were hurt, tears were shed, and people went home mad. The game became so intense because of the cat and mouse of chasing the terrorist that we didn't hear the phone ring or the 3 knocks on the door. This expansion enables a world of options, and the new characters introduce such amazing variation, I say if you have Pandemic, this expansion is a must.

Pandemic is my favorite game!

"On the Brink" is not a stand-alone game it is an expansion on the board game "Pandemic". You will need to already own the game "Pandemic" in order to play this.

I won't bore you with about the theme or how to play Pandemic. You probably already own the original game anyway. However, if you want to see it in action, check out Wil Wheaton's YouTube show TableTop:

[...]

This version is the 2nd edition of "On the brink", which is a much prettier version with an easier to understand rulebook and A LOT of bonus cards. I do not recommend buying the older version. (Why would you??!!?)

In "On the Brink" you get three new ways to spice up "Pandemic". The first is the Mutation variant. This will brings a fifth disease into the game and adds "Mutation Event" cards to both the player deck & the infection deck that will be used along with the standard epidemic cards. It's a nice change and curing the fifth disease is a bit trickier than the rest.

The second variant is the Virulent Strain. Basically, you'll replace the standard green epidemic cards with the red epidemic cards. Now, each time an epidemic card is drawn, you'll infect like normal, but an ongoing effect will occur for whichever disease is currently the most prevalent on the board. (This is my favorite way to play. The ongoing effects really intensify the game.)

The third variant is the Bioterrorist. This allows a 5th player to play the game. This is the role everyone wants to play whenever I mention I have this expansion. The Bioterrorist is a bit complicated to play & explain. The short version is that he is a walking "Mutation Event / 5th disease".

We love Pandemic and the expansion did not disappoint! Love the new roles, special event cards, and other options. Unfortunately though, we have the 1st edition Pandemic so the cards of the 2nd edition On The Brink are different so we know when the new ones are coming up. Quick fix - will order the 2nd edition and give our older version to my parents. Spread the joy :-)

My friends and I loved playing Pandemic. I decided I had to get the expansion for the cool petri dishes it comes with and the added cards.

The virulent strain challenge:
It's fun. It is probably the easier of the three challenges the game comes with. It essentially replaces the epidemic cards with cards with added or continuing effects on one color disease, so it makes it annoying to treat and cure.

Mutation challenge:
Purple disease cube and can be played with the virulent strain. I enjoyed this one. I thought it would be very hard but if you play with 4 virulent strain epidemic cards it is just beatable. What is nice about it is that it is easy to cure but is difficult to eradicate, plus there are only 12 disease cubes of the purple.

Bioterrorist challenge:
Good, but not my favorite challenge. Essentially you act as the five disease similar to the mutation challenge. It was really fun to sabotage the other players by removing research stations from the board. However, it was really limiting only having two actions, but maybe that's the point.

If you love pandemic, definitely get this expansion. It allows a lot of options how to play the game.
