12 Game Gifts of Christmas: 11th Day

On the eleventh day of Christmas, my true love gave to me
Eleven Pandemic co-ops, ten Ticket to Ride games, nine Catan expansions, eight Unlock! escape games, seven Exit: The Games, six sets of Card Sleeves, five Zombie Dice!, four Games for Two, three Dice Sets, two Letters to Santa and a Hanabi co-op card game.

11 Pandemic Co-ops

Pandemic, designed by Matt Leacock, is the first purely cooperative game to garner major attention. In purely cooperative games all players must work together to complete a common goal – they either win together or lose together.

In the original Pandemic, you and your friends play the role of scientists trying to prevent a pandemic from laying waste to the world. There’s only one way to win. However, there are multiple ways to lose. Likewise in Pandemic spin-offs like Cthulhu, The Cure, Iberia, Rising Tide and the two Legacy games. Did you know Forbidden Island, Forbidden Desert and the new Forbidden Sky are also Pandemic spin-offs?

The two Pandemic Legacy Games, Season 1 and Season 2, are sort of like a melding of a Pandemic game and a serial TV show. There’s a long story-arc and objectives that change as the game progresses. Outbreaks and other occurrences in one game, affect future games. Players play characters they name and find new characters they can play as the game progresses. The rules also expand as the story unfolds. Pandemic Legacy games are simply awesome. Any Pandemic game and spin-off or expansion makes a great gaming gift in my opinion.

You can learn more in my Pandemic, Pandemic Legacy: Season 1, Pandemic Legacy: Season 2, and Forbidden Desert game reviews.
