These challenges can be mixed together to make the game even harder.Virulent Strain challenge: makes one disease become particularly deadly in unpredictable ways.Mutation Challenge: adds a fifth (purple) disease that behaves differently than the original four.Bio-Terrorist Challenge: pits one player against the others!You may also play with 5 players and play on Legendary level!Other components include petri dishes to store your diseases and pawns.On the Brink version differences:116 cards from the base game (with some corrections) only 7 pawns (small-size)On the Brink requires a copy of Pandemic to play; it is not a stand-alone game.

When I first played Pandemic I was enthralled by the level of intensity in this co-operative board game. We felt like there was so much at stake in the game, we were constantly on the edge of losing control and really had to work together and communicate well to win. Also, winning can be difficult in this board game, which adds to the interest and 'addiction factor', at least at first.

This is one board game where I would *absolutely* recommend the expansion, 'On The Brink'. The game does get a little stale without it, but the expansion provides another level of difficulty and unpredictability.

One thing to watch out for in this game is an overly-dominating personality in one of your fellow players. The only bad games I've ever had are those where one person is just telling everyone else what to do - this sucks all the co-operation and fun out of the game quickly. Play with a good group and you will love Pandemic.

Love Pandemic? This expansion is absolutely worth every penny.

Before I go any further, first let me clarify that you must have at least some version of the base game in order to play. On The Brink is not a stand-alone game and does nothing for you without the original Pandemic.

This expansion adds new challenges and twists, new roles, new events, and three new variations in the base game to allow you to change it up. It builds off of everything that is great about the original game by adding new layers and new interest. My friends and I play Pandemic over and over, and we almost never play anymore without at least using some part of On The Brink (roles, events, or rules). In fact, we play it so much I had to order replacement card decks because my original decks got so beat up. I learned my lesson and bought clear card-covers for the second set of decks to keep them looking new for future expansions!

If you're only going to buy one expansion for Pandemic, make it this one. If you're going to buy more expansions after that, I'd recommend "State of Emergency" next, and then "In The Lab" last.

This expansion actually adds four challenges: the mutation challenge (adds a 5th disease to the board), the virulent strain challenge (which adds new behaviours and increased complexity to the original 4 diseases), a bio-terrorist challenge that pits one player against the rest of the players, and it also adds a 7th regular epidemic card that allows you to play the original, base game with 7 epidemics. (For those of you who have begun to think the original is too easy... 7 epidemics will change your mind, I guarantee it!

I like the expansion, the new rules are great the only issue is that there is a major printing difference between the first addition of this games and that should be noted. So i can tell when certian card come up but there are good and bad card added so that is still fun.

This expansion adds nice changes to the base game. If you are a Pandemic fan I would strongly suggest you buying this expansion.
Can not wait till the next expansion comes out In The Lab.

My husband and I just got this expansion a few days ago and we are loving it so far. I'm playing around with the different challenges offered and a friend came over tonight and we won our first 3-player game thanks to one of the new roles it adds. The virulent strain challenge was really fun (we tried that for the first time tonight) and I look forward to trying with the mutation challenge especially. If you love the base game, this is a must-have expansion.

This game is so addictive, I dream about it and it's educational to. The younger ones have a more geographic idea of where countries I wouldn't normally pay attention to are situated in the world. We totally love the option to create roles. One can not predict the outcome of the game no matter how many times it's played. Absolutely love it! And the delivery was very speedy.

Adds a lot to the original game, the Bio-Terrorist variant is pretty blah, however. The other two modules it adds (mutation with purple cubes, and the virulent strain epidemics) are great and challenging. Comes with an amazing insert that stores everything perfectly. Petri dishes for the cubes it comes with are cool as well. If you love Pandemic, this a must buy.

Pandemic is a great game and this expansion makes it even better. It makes the game harder which you might think is so so but that is what makes this great. Having a chance of winning instead of a chance of losing is a great incentive to work together.
