Hello

I love Pandemic. I loved Iberia, the new elements, the theme, the art and all and I definitely want to buy sooner or later (I know it's a limited print.) I'm going to buy 2-3 games spending $50-75 in this Tabletop Day week, hopefully on a good Amazon sale. But I don't have too much games.
Here you can see my collection. https://boardgamegeek.com/collection/user/Aenovejo?own=1&sub...

I love Pandemic, I like to play it, and even though it's my first modern board game, I still play it. Should I buy Iberia or a different game to expand my collection in a different area?

Some of my options are; Amerigo, Castles of Burgundy, Castles of Mad King Ludwig, Isle of Sky.

Thanks!

I bought it (haven't played it yet) because I really like the Pandemic mechanic and Iberia is well regarded for it's new changes and supposedly limited run. But I really wanted to give a thumbs up for Castles of Burgundy to be added (esp over Amerigo)- it's a really good Feld game.

Al excellent choices, so picking up 3 games. I would recommend The Castles of Burgundy, Isle of Skye: From Chieftain to King and Pandemic: Iberia
But your other picks are great as well.

As you are clearly a big fan of Pandemic I would recommend getting Iberia, it's a great pandemic variant and it will not be available forever.

What do you mean we don't have time for another game?

I would agree with this list.

In all honesty, I haven't (yet) played Isle of Skye, but Castles of Mad King Ludwig is also an excellent choice. So the 3 mentioned above or CoMKL instead of Isle of Skye would also be a great list.

Hey thanks!

I just got Castles of Burgundy in Tabletop Sale. The others didn't go to sale, so I'll hope for them to drop their prices and get what I can!

Pandemic is my favourite board game, and I have both pandemic and pandemic iberia (and pandemic the cure etc). I really like pandemic iberia but if you have a limited budget and collection then I would tend to recommend another game rather than pandemic iberia. Don't get me wrong it is a great game and I am sure you will enjoy it if you purchase it ... but maybe variety is good in a 20-ish board game collection!

Happy purchasing (with whatever you decide in the end).
