The expansion contents according to the entry on https://www.amazon.com/Pandemic-The-Cure-Experimental-Meds/d...

• 8 Player pawns
• 8 Role cards
• 40 Player dice in 8 colors
• 11 Event cards
• 3 Blank Event cards
• 12 Purple Infection dice
• 1 Purple Cured Diseases card
• 1 Mutation Reference card
• 1 Sticker sheet
• 11 Contents Cont. Hot Zone dice for the Hot Zone Challenge
• 5 Hot Zone reference cards

I'm wondering if there will be eight new roles or if the existing roles will be reprinted for some reason.

Part of the blurb for the game includes this line:

"Fortunately, new medical experts have joined the fight to help you."

I would assume that these are indeed new roles and not simply reprints.

Edit: and the fact that there is 8 player pawns included in the game, along with 8 role cards, is a giveaway that these are new roles; you wouldn't need player pawns if they are reprinting the roles.

This has me most intrigued. Possible changes for the original roles to help combat the new threats?

that and "40 player dice in 8 colours" suggests 8 new roles.

The pictures have shown dice being placed on the circle ring. Possibly, the stickers are to put on the ring for indicators to put the dice there.

This is tres exciting
Love this lil game, looking forward to some mutation! I wonder if they could put in a bio-t like P:OTB maybe manipulate the action dice rolls of players or somehow shift infection dice...

In past expansions for Pandemic the board game they came with sticker you could put on the board for curing the purple disease. They also included a purple cure floating card if you didn't want to use the sticker. Sounds similar to what's included in Experimental Meds.

The stickers are for the Region tiles, to take account of the 5th (purple) infection.

For information, the rules are now available on the Z-Man games site. http://www.zmangames.com/uploads/4/7/1/7/47170931/en-pandemi...

Since the region tiles are two-sided, you can put the stickers on one side and then, if not playing with the Mutation, just flip the tiles over.
