Board Stiff with Pandemic

Get your SARS masks ready! This week over at GamesAreEvil.com I take a look at the highly infectious co-op Pandemic!
The game starts with an epidemic in random locations, determined by the top nine cards on the Infection Deck. Diseases are denoted in this game by adorable little colored blocks, which you will learn to respect and loathe by the end of your first time playing. These seemingly innocent cubes are placed in a city whenever that city’s card is drawn from the Infection Deck. The more cubes present in a city, the more active and dangerous that disease is.
