We don't stop playing when we get old, but we get old when we stop playing.

I remember the original Pandemic is a 1-4 players game. The Cthulhu version shows 2-4. Is this game playable solo like the original title, or not? If not why is it so?

Thanks for answers in advance.

It is certainly playable solo, just play with two (or more) characters.

I've played it solo several times and it's a lot of fun!

I play RoC solo a lot, with 2, 3 and 4 roles, but I've never played it with only one role.

I think I prefer playing this game solo over playing with others.

Original Pandemic is also listed as a 2-4 player game, so to play solo you would also play with two (or more) roles. (There's a pure solo mode in one of the expansions that allows you to play with one role at a time.)

So as others have said, it's just as playable solo.

Yeah, I've enjoyed playing it solo, using 2 or more characters. It's great!

I tried it this evening and won with Hunter. It was good fun and I will try it again.
I posted the translated rules on the file page.
