.....just a thought. This would easily be an insta buy for me and I haven't even played the first season yet.

I mean, just think of the narrative pssibilities and character progression! And what about the chance of getting that beautiful board in epic size!!

What do y'all think?

Pandemic Legacy: Season 2 is coming out next year, so perhaps what you mean is a legacy version of Pandemic: Reign of Cthulhu? That sounds like it would have potential for great storytelling.

It would certainly appeal to some people, but a lot of people (myself included) really don't care / are tired of Lovecraft themes. It also wouldn't really tie into the "Season 2" aspect of the game.

In all honestly, if they wanted to make a Lovecraft legacy game, it would probably be a lot better to start with a completely new game system rather than starting with the Cthulhu Pandemic.

i'm not really into the legacy games but i think the Cthulhu Pandemic mechanics work incredibly well. This would adapt really well to a Legacy version.

while a lot of people don't care / aren't interested in Lovecraft themes, there are a lot of people that are into it....especially if works well. Reign of Cthulhu at first seemed like a weak re-skin of Pandemic to me but after playing it, it's excellent and does enough to make it a different game.

Meh it's a weak re-skin for a dumbed down version of pandemic.

Of course pandemic puts most people to sleep so maybe the mythos will help keep people awake?

It's definitely a less puzzly version of Pandemic, with some extra rules added in yeah, but the actual puzzle is "dumbed down".
