The Opener is back with another perfect game to start your board game night, your collection, or set your friends down the Cardboard Path. It's Pandemic and penicillin! Meaning a whiskey cocktail called a penicillin. Going to your friends' house and eating their mold colonies is not only unpalatable, it's quite rude.

It might sound less attractive than Skull & Roses with fresh pizza, but you haven't lived until you've had a great game of Pandemic. Catching that redeye flight to Seoul, praying you can prevent an outbreak? Driving around Africa, crates of your precious cure rattling around in the back of your jeep? That's the good stuff, and it gets even better with Pandemic: On the Brink, and even more nightmarish with Pandemic: In the Lab.

G'wan! Treat yourself and pick up a copy. No other game is this tense and rich, and yet this accessible.
