So we're into September, only a few more sessions until our pandemic legacy experience is over, and I am dreading it!

Any recommendations for a 4 player group game that might lessen the loss? Haha!!

Well, if you like the legacy experience, just:
1) buy a game.
2) play it once.
3) throw it away.

Voila.

T.I.M.E Stories perhaps? Or Legends of Andor?

What about Pandemic?

You know, the game that has infinite replay value, plays 99% the same as Pandemic Legacy, and doesn't cost as much?

Pandemic Legacy can still be played as basic Pandemic after completing the game, providing you didn't actually rip up or trash cards but just marked them or set aside.

Except that by the time you buy a couple of expansions to get the additional characters etc that come with pandemic legacy, you're paying more, not less. You could just keep playing normal pandemic rules with legacy anyway.

When someone has game designer above their name and makes that sort of comment on a Pandemic Legacy thread, it comes across as more "jealous and bitter" to me.

Pandemic Legacy can still be played as basic Pandemic after completing the game.


The recent polls made here on bgg show that almost everyone who buys Pandemic have already played or have bought regular Pandemic before...

So i always found the observation that Legacy can still be used as a regular Pandemic pointless for the majority of people... as they already have base Pandemic.

And i don't think anyone who have base Pandemic and got Legacy told themselves: "i now can get rid of my old Pandemic as Legacy replaces it".

I thought this was just normal gamer behavior. Or do I go to a weird game group?

Well sorry. I don't fit into your scientific poll.

And if the majority of people who own Pandemic Legacy own Pandemic, then why would you recommend the OP buy Pandemic?

1) not my poll.
2) missed the part where i recommend to buy it. The TC asks for what to play to fill the void of Pandemic Legacy... a quick look through the TC's collection revealed that he/she already has base Pandemic and 2 expansions for it... so really why not just play that?

Sorry. I took "What about Pandemic" as you recommending OP buy it, which was all the more puzzling since it's owned by OP.

That was my first thought, although I haven't played it yet I'm definitely interested in trying it now that I've enjoyed Pandemic Legacy so much. Any comments from others who've played both?

My family and I just finished our Pandemic Legacy campaign on Monday and are still sad about it. It was, without a doubt, our best gaming experience ever.

We loved the storyline aspect, so I'm attempting to transition into a Star Wars Imperial Assault campaign.

My wife and 2 boys are big Star Wars fans, though I think our first SW:IA game fell a little flat with my wife. I think it might have been that she had so many rules to learn, so I'm hopeful that as the campaign and story goes on she will get excited.

There are a couple more legacy games anticipated this year. Gloomhaven and SeaFall.

I know BGG makes it seem normal, but when I look at things outside of BGG it turns out it really isn't.

Yeah, I have pandemic in many forms!! Love it, but it's the legacy part of it that will leave the hole - having our previous games impact future ones and not being unable to undo bad decisions, and following a story. It's a bit pathetic, but I've looked forward to it all week in a way that I've never looked forward to games night before.

Edited to add: I also really like that it's co-op..

I just got time stories as a gift, not played it yet. Do you think it might fill the gap for a little while?

I haven't played Pandemic Legacy because I can't find a copy for less than £75 but I really enjoy Pandemic.
I looked at your collection but you haven't rated any games so I'm not sure exactly what you'd like, but Star Wars: Imperial Assault has a great campaign mode and is well suited to 4 players but isn't co-op, it's 1-vs-many. Descent: Journeys in the Dark (Second Edition) is similar, but I think one of the expansions adds a fully co-op mode. Risk Legacy because Legacy.

Risk legacy all the way, we are running both sort of concurrently, and it's very good fun. However, risk legacy tends to take a fair bit longer per game, with much more time between player turns IMO, so better for nights where you have more time and patient people!

Woah thanks!
I see you're a bit more of a euro fan than myself. If Descent isn't quite what you're looking for, check out Mice and Mystics. I haven't played it but I think it's fully co-operative.
