Pandemic : On The Brink

This is an expansion, the base game is needed to play Pandemic. Pandemic: On the Brink includes new event cards, new role cards, rules for five players, and optional game challenges to increase the difficulty of the Pandemic base game. These new challenges, which can be used individually or combined for even more difficult play, are as follows:
  • The Virulent Strain challenge makes one disease become particularly deadly in unpredictable ways.
  • The Mutation challenge adds a fifth (purple) disease that behaves differently than the original four.
  • The Bio-Terrorist challenge pits one player against the others!


THIS IS A PANDEMIC BOARD GAME EXPANSION: You will need Pandemic Base Game in order to play with this expansion. RAISE THE STAKES AND FACE NEW CHALLENGES WITH THIS EXPANSION: You've found the cures to four diseases. But what happens when those diseases get stronger? Worse yet, what happens when someone spreads them intentionally? Try each challenge individually or combine them all for a major test! THREE EXCITING NEW CHALLENGES: Challenge 1: one disease might become a Virulent Strain and become more difficult to treat. Challenge 2: an unpredictable fifth disease with the Mutation challenge pops up in unexpected places. Challenge 3: a fifth player dons the mask of the Bio-Terrorist and spreads panic. NEW COMPONENTS ADD MORE VARIETY: This expansion adds seven new roles and eight new event cards. Combined with the base game, these cards open new avenues for experimentation and improvisation in your quest to save humanity. SET THE DIFFICULTY LEVEL: If finding cures is becoming routine even on the Heroic difficulty, you can always add another Epidemic card and tackle Legendary difficulty. With a whopping seven Epidemic cards, playing at Legendary will challenge even the most experienced Pandemic players.
