I got Pandemic Legacy Season 2 this past weekend and played the prologue and the first month (campaign is broken into “months”). So far, it’s pretty cool! When you first start out, it plays a lot like the original Pandemic, but with several small modifications. From reading the rules, these changes seemed minor, but when we actually played the game there were a lot of unforeseen strategic implications that really changed the way we solved the central puzzle of the game. It looks and feels like classic Pandemic, but you can’t rely on the same old strategies.
Then toward the end of game 1 we unlocked something and began to see the broader shape of the game. It’s pretty intriguing!
