Today's game is Pandemic with the On the Brink expansion. I wrote a review for the base game of Pandemic back in 2009.

As well as two stand alone games Pandemic: The.

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.
Three expansions, Pandemic: On the Brink, Pandemic: In the Lab, and Pandemic: State of Emergency, co-designed by Matt Leacock and Tom Lehmann, each add several new roles and special events, as well as rule adjustments to allow a fifth player or to play in teams.
While State of Emergency and Pandemic can fit together in a single box, packing it with the On the Brink insert will be a very tough fit. I recommend instead putting the base game, with all the extra roles, events, and petri dishes from On the Brink and In the Lab in one box and all the challenges in another box.
This is an all-new expansion for the popular game Pandemic. You need to own Pandemic and Pandemic: On The Brink to play this expansion.

I really like Pandemic and this expansion gives you a little bit more to play with without going overboard. The virulent strain makes each game a bit more unpredictable than usual without changing much of the dynamics of the original game. I really like the Bioterrorist as it gives a nice twist to the original game and I like the one against all for a change. The mutation is also quite good.
Find out below all you’ll need to know to play Pandemic. How to Setup the Game.

This takes the purple virus mutation variant from Pandemic: On the Brink and adds a new layer where you can’t treat the purple disease from the start.

To win the game you have to fully eradicate it on top of doing the normal.
Pandemic Legacy Season1 vs Pandemic with on the Brink Expansion Which one would you recommend? We greatly enjoy the betrayer plays (like what you get in Dead of winter), and as far as I know original Pandemic combined with on the Brink (bio-terrorist) expansion can provide that.
In the Lab requires both Pandemic and On the Brink to play, and also requires replacement decks if using the first editions of Pandemic and On the Brink. Editions Edit.

In the Lab. Adds a research mechanic and solo-play. Requires On the Brink to play. State of Emergency. Adds new roles and three new challenges. Said challenges are: the Hinterlands, where animals spread diseases to humans. For all the furries in the group. Emergency Events, in case you thought Outbreaks and Epidemic cards where bad enough. And Superbug, a disease that cannot be cured. How fun.
Return to the world of Pandemic with On the Brink and prepare for the unexpected. The three challenges included with this expansion evolve the base game mechanics in exciting ways. One disease might become a Virulent Strain and become more difficult to treat as the game goes on. Or you could introduce an unpredictable fifth disease with the Mutation challenge and watch it pop up in unexpected.
