From the publisher:
Actions have consequences from one game to the next as you strive to avert global disaster in this stand-alone epic twist on Pandemic. Red and Blue Editions have variant covers; game contents are the same.
AN EPIC ADVENTURE
It starts simply. A virus tougher than the rest. Nothing your team can’t handle. But as January turns to February, things take a turn for the worse. This is no ordinary virus. What results is a year that will never be forgotten. Pandemic Legacy: Season 1 is a unique and epic cooperative game where your decisions in one game carry over into future games. Over the course of the campaign, you will open sealed packets, reveal hidden information, and unlock secrets that will change your world in unexpected ways. Characters will gain scars, cities will panic, and diseases will mutate. Adapt to each new challenge and save humanity before it’s too late. The world will never be the same again.
ONE MONTH AT A TIME
Pandemic Legacy: Season 1 begins like the original Pandemic, but soon morphs into something more. Pandemic Legacy has a story arc that occurs over the course of year. Each passing month brings new objectives, new challenges, and even new rules. Trigger certain events and you’ll unlock tools that reveal strategies for dealing with each new problem. Throughout, the clock is ticking. You have only two chances to win a game during a month before moving on to the next, so be careful. Your actions have a permanent impact on the world, for better or for worse.
CHANGE THE WORLD
As your Pandemic Legacy: Season 1 campaign continues, the world you are fighting to protect becomes uniquely your own. Characters are affected by their experiences battling the global pandemic and cities feel the weight of the outbreaks and epidemics that sweep through them. Even the diseases themselves evolve as you play. These developments have a direct impact on the game itself. Cities panic and become harder to travel to as the infection spreads. Characters’ abilities are diminished as outbreaks take their mental toll. Your team is all that stands between global catastrophe, and you decide how it evolves. Enhance your characters’ abilities or add powerful new event cards to the player deck. Many options exist, each of which will shape the course of your campaign.
STRIVE TO SAVE HUMANITY
The world is on the brink of collapse. The coming year in Pandemic Legacy: Season 1 will determine the fate of humanity. Gather your team and prepare for a campaign full of epic twists and evolving gameplay. There are many paths to follow. No two worlds will ever be alike!
