In Pandemic Iberia, the year is 1848, and diseases are spreading fast under the burning sun of the Iberian Peninsula. Take on the roles of a nurse, a railway man, and a rural doctor, among many others, and work as a team to push back the new threats that are malaria, typhus, cholera, and the yellow fever.

From Barcelona to Lisboa, travel by carriage, by boat, or by train, and help the Iberian populace by developing railways and distributing purified water in this new version of Pandemic.

Discover a unique part of the world during the historically significant time period that is the construction of the first railroad in the Iberian Peninsula called the Spring of Nations.

  • Pandemic stand-alone expansion with great historic theme and some interesting gameplay tweaks.
  • A very nice twist of the classic. This is one of the better implementation of Pandemic where the track laying is a cool idea that works.
  • Weight: 2.70 / 5
  • Rating based on 1st game, which was very good. Like the twists in this version, the various roles as well as the scenario's you can play. Interested to play this some more.

If #Pax Pamir (Second Edition) is on the list then that will definitely be one for me since I know it'll be hard to find (although I'm still waiting for my preorder at my FLGS but they told me it's on the way!).

Also, even though I might not play it for years and years to come #A Few Acres of Snow.  It was the first game to really get me into the hobby, it's out of print, and my wife played a few times with me and may again for sentimental sake in the future.

And... I believe #Pandemic: Iberia is no longer in print in English so I guess I could call that a Grail Game for me.

#Scythe was one of the first games in my collection and even though we play it sometimes I'd like to get it out more.  I still haven't been able to get #Scythe: The Rise of Fenris to the table unfortunately.

I have #Pandemic: Iberia and I though coop was okay when I first entered the hobby but not I really prefer to skip it unless it's like team coop against other human players.

#Scythe is definitely a good intro, and once you have the basics of gameplay #Scythe: The Rise of Fenris becomes an even better intro to a Campaign came and adds richness to the original game by adding more of a backstory.

Then dipping into some good deck building games, one that has become our favorite is #Video Vortex. Fun theme, crazy characters and differing abilities.

To get a taste for cooperative gameplay along with Legacy I would choose Betrayal Legacy or Pandemic Legacy. Pandemic is a good overall coop, but of the series of stand alone games #Pandemic: Iberia is our favorite.

 

1. Generally, I do not really care for coops.  For me the best aspect of a coop is that they are good games to play solo right off the bat.  I don't care for them because I like that impactful negative player interaction.  I don't mind playing cooperatively against another groups of coop people though.

2. I think there are many people who don't like to be "mean" to each other and so coops are appealing because they get to think strategically without being negative towards others.  Of course this is not the case for me.  But I do know some friends from college that would have week long spells of being mad at each other over board games.  I'm fine losing and losing because someone screwed me over because it's just a game.

3. I think Pandemic would be considered a top tier game in the sense that it's coop and also a Foundation game.  Another game that I think has elements of coop that I enjoy (although I always play the Empire) is #Star Wars Imperial Assault.  The rebels are essentially playing a coop game, although it's different from just playing against the board.

4. My daughter and I have played #Pandemic: Iberia together and I'd say that was the most memorable because it was just another opportunity to try to cultivate a love of gaming in her.

My oldest is 7, then it's 3.5, 2, and 2 months (so some of them have a ways to go).  The games we currently play together are (Fireball Island: The Curse of Vul-KarMy Little ScytheSushi Go!Pandemic: IberiaBargain Quest, and a modified version of Star Wars Imperial Assault) . I sometimes start with modified rules or fewer rules and introduce more later.  For instance on Sushi Go! I skipped some of the cards and added a new type of card with each play.

I was able to teach my 6 year old daughter Pandemic: Iberia and it was a lot of fun to move her up out of only playing kids games.  My plan of built in gaming group at home is coming along nicely. 

I like Pandemic: Iberia and Azul when playing with my wife :)

I got to play Pandemic: Iberia and some Texas Hold'em Poker.
