First, I have Defenders of the Realm, which I hear is a lot like Pandemic. If i have Defenders, is Pandemic different enough to warrant purchasing it?

Secondly if I am getting Pandemic, I know I want to play a bunch before I even attempt Legacy. With season 2 out, I don't know if I should worry about season 1 going out of print. If I get Season 1, couldn't I just play regular Pandemic on it for a while?

Thanks!

You can play regular pandemic on it before you start with the Legacy mechanics. In fact, it encourages you to do so.

I think you should buy the core Pandemic game if you plan to buy the expansions as well.

Are the expansions not compatible with the Legacy board/cards/etc?

They are compatible, I believe. The legacy card backs are the same as the original game, if I remember correctly. If you have a group of friends willing to commit to 12+ sessions of legacy, I'd say do that. If that is an iffy prospect, I'd go standard.

Well, if you buy the legacy version as base pandemic and some expansions, you won't have some characters which are in base pandemic but not in legacy, but that's pretty minor. More than that, once you are finished with the legacy campaign, your cards and board will be full of stickers. If you are ready to play basic pandemic with such a setup that should be OK, but for sure you should ask yourself this question first.

Never played Defenders.

I do have regular Pandemic and all expansions and have played/enjoyed them. Season 1 was one of the best experiences of my gaming life and I'd 100% suggest it for pretty much anyone who plays games.

Regular Pandemic is good too. And you can figure out how much you like it, by playing it on the Legacy board without actually playing the Legacy game. IF you love it, buy it after you play Legacy. If you don't love it, you'll probably still be glad you played Season 1.
