Takes ever...

by CapnAlex

Takes everything that’s good about Pandemic and makes it shine. Beating back the barbarian hoarders feels appropriate thematic, and the way they advance on Roma leans in the predictability that makes Pandemic good (over, say, the random and erratic fire in Flash Point) which avoiding the inevitability that base Pandemic has, particularly with many Epidemics meaning it’s the same cities over and over. Each role feels really distinct, moreso than other Pandemic games. Legions add a really interesting layer of tactics, and the dice mechanic works very smoothly - rewarding sensible play, helping to highlight that some roles are better or worse at combat, with an appropriate level of randomness that also helps avoid overplanning/quarterbacking. Appreciate the theme of the game, and the way you can defeat each tribe through conquest or alliance.
