GOTW – Free Play 2

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I have been unable to play the games which we were originally supposed to play for EDL290T, at Miami University. For this free play, I played the game Pandemic, which only seems fit considering the current situation. In the game, players work together to eradicate diseases. In the beginning, players are assigned different roles with different abilities that assist them in the game. The board is similar to risk. There are infected pieces on large cities. Players move around the map to remove these pieces. The goal is to remove all pieces. The diseases can spread really quickly, which is the hardest part of the game. It is difficult to stop it. It seems like when you finally start to clear up an area, it comes back or takes over another place. Despite the difficulty, it is still fun. I think the leadership skill of teamwork is present in this game. It is really important in this game and in life that you use different peoples’ strengths to accomplish a common goal. I would recommend this game to anyone. I think it is a great game for families, friends, coworkers, and any group of people. It is a lot of fun to play, and I definitely recommend it.
