My copy of Pandemic just arrived. I checked and counted all components, and I seem to have an extra Epidemic card. Can't complain.

But is it sensible to play with 7, or is that just being silly? (I lost my first [2 player] game with only 4 soblue )

Go right ahead with all 7 if you feel adventurous! That is actually one of the variants we will see in the On The Brink expansion coming out soon for Pandemic.

Good luck though...! You'll need it!

Pretty damn hard. Leave it as a super challenge. I remember computer games like Doom had nightmare mode, and Duke Nuken 3d something similar. Can go for that if your group is feeling gutsy.


Otherwise, leave it as a spare.


When you get the 7th epidemic, you can also reset the Infector rate as well back to 2 cards cool

It's quite doable with 2 players. 3 is a big challenge, 4 nigh impossible.
