#ThreatTuesday – #Boardgame or simulation? Pandemic (@Asmodee_USA) & #coronavirus

The first case of the Wuhan Coronavirus reached the US today. Looks like a good time to break out a bit dated, yet stalwart cooperative boardgame design, Pandemic (Asmodee, 2004+).

I assure you I’m not trying to make light of the crisis. It’s just that Pandemic is a good game that creates an atmosphere of crisis. To win, smart planning and partnerships/teamwork is needed. Better to learn those lessons on a gameboard where nobody dies than to stumble about helplessly.
