Pandemic is a really amazing game. Instead of players playing against each other, you are playing against the game mechanics to try to cure the world of 4 diseases that are breaking out in different geographies. Difficulty level can be adjusted by setting the frequency of the outbreaks.
The noob level of pandemic is 4 epidemics. Susan and I can pretty much beat every instance of that. Last night we managed our first victory at the 5 epidemic level (after a fare number of losses). For anyone that knows the game, they’ll notice we were at our final outbreak level when we won.
