Celebrate a decade of curing diseases with the game that started it all. With new art, a special box, and quality components, this special anniversary edition is a must-have for fans of Pandemic.

Gameplay-wise, this is the classic, beloved co-op—you and your team are still the only things standing in the way of deadly diseases that threaten the world, and you must work together to avert disaster. Yet again, the fate of humanity is in your hands! But with this beautifully rendered edition of the game, you’ll be saving humanity in style. It includes:

CUSTOM METAL BOX

This custom metal box was inspired by the look of early 20th century first aid kits, and it really grounded the entire product’s design. The minimalist design and font choices work together to make this feel like a truly exceptional vintage product. The game itself weighs an impressive 6 pounds, with the metal box contributing a significant amount of heft. And, for you hardcore Pandemic fans, the box comes with gaskets that allow you to mount it to the wall of your game room.

PLASTIC FIGURES

This has been a long time coming. Not only has this been one of the most-requested topics that appears on seemingly everyone’s wishlist, but at least once a year someone launches a crowdfunding campaign for a set of generic “disease-fighting” minis. The anniversary edition provided us with the perfect opportunity to introduce highly detailed figures into Pandemic. Each figure has been carefully sculpted based on the 2nd edition character designs, and they’ve been painted with a wash to really make those details pop!

WOODEN BITS

One of our goals with Pandemic 10th was to highlight the very best of both 1st and 2nd edition. We know many Pandemic fans appreciate the look and feel of the wooden components from the game’s 1st edition and we wanted to pay tribute to that aspect of the original game. We splurged on wood pieces for this special edition, and inside you’ll find wooden cubes as well as wooden cure markers screenprinted with the virus symbols.

ALL-NEW ART & GRAPHIC DESIGN

To complement the box’s minimalist design, Pandemic 10th features all-new art and graphic design. Even the character illustrations (which we kept from 2nd edition) get some special treatment to match the vintage aesthetic. The color palette, the layout, and even some special effects that render some of the printed materials as if they were made in an antique printshop really complete the whole design.

EVERYTHING ELSE

In addition to all of the above, Pandemic 10th features a larger board, converts the role cards into large ID badges with fingerprints and profile data, and has custom screen-printed Petri dishes. All in all, we are quite proud of the final product.

Join us as we celebrate a decade of curing disease and pre-order your copy of this special limited edition of the classic cooperative game! As an added bonus with your pre-order, you will receive a special set of pre-painted figures, which you can read about here. Pandemic 10th Anniversary will be $99.99 and will release in Q4.

Shipping to the UK is $75 so it's a hard pass from me. No idea how they can justify that cost unless the case is made from solid lead.

Seems a steep price tag for the relatively minor component upgrades. And I actually like the plastic cubes in the current edition. Those neon colours look more virulent, somehow.

You can get 30 miniatures that Chad Hovertor sculpted for ~60$ US; it’s a set for every Pandemic game you own up to Legacy S2, I believe. (Not Cthulhu/Iberia)

There must be a smuggler's underground app, like couchsurfing.com called "gamesmuggler.com" or something. If you know you're flying to the UK and you'll have room in your luggage, you haul someone's 20 lb. box of plastic for them, and in return they give you a Ragnar Brothers prototype that they stole from their top secret headquarters in the alps. Everyone wins.
