So... There is an opportunity for me to acquire Vanilla Pandemic with In the Lab and On the Brink Expansions (with the offer expiring soon).
Thing is- I already have Pandemic Legacy.

Should I acquire the Pandemic with Expansions?

I know the answer could be easy - it'd be like "just open up and play the Pandemic Legacy vanilla style and see if you like it"

But my next gaming session isn't on the horizon and I'm not in the mood to solo through the game at this moment. (Yes I acquired Pandemic Legacy primarily to ogle at the box and hug it to sleep)

So what would you do?
Since we're on this topic- would you trade a BNIS Pandemic Legacy for Vanilla Pandemic and the 2 Expansions?

I wouldn't trade them, no . . . because different experience, right? I own Pandemic and all expansions and I love them. I own Legacy, still shrinkwrapped and look forward to being able to play it in a few months.

If you like co-op games, yes, grab them. Otherwise . . . hard to say. Depends on how much of a steal it is, I guess, and how you'd feel about the situation if you ended up hating everything Pandemic.

Have you ever played any pandemic before?

My angle would be that you could always buy another Pandemic Legacy later and you could also sell/trade Original pandemic, with expansions. You won't be able to do very much with a used copy of Pandemic Legacy.

So if you have that offer, the safer choice is to trade for something that has a resale value. If you find that you enjoy Pandemic then get Legacy later.

If that's the case, then you might not like Pandemic, but it's almost irrelevant for Pandemic Legacy, which is more like a virtual run through an action movie with your mates. Who wouldn't love that? (YMMV)
