We’ve added a new game to our ever expanding library! The latest game to be added is Pandemic: The Cure.
Pandemic The Cure takes the concept of Pandemic (grabbing a bunch of your friends and trying to save the world from four diseases) and speeds it up and makes it slightly more random by using dice instead of cubes.
