Reading Rulebooks Episode Thirteen – Pandemic

Reading Rulebooks is a podcast dedicated to reading through rulebooks and teaching games! In this podcast, I directly read the rulebook as well as discuss the game and try to clear up potential areas of confusion.

Check out the Game section of MCG for more episodes of the Reading Rulebooks Podcast or check out the MCG YouTube Channel for Videos! Or check out the RSS Podcast page!

This week we are going to cover the rules for Pandemic. Pandemic is a game designed by Matt Leacock and is illustrated by Josh Cappel, Christian Hanisch, Regis Moulun, Chris Quilliams, and Tom Theil. The game is published by Z-Man Games.

Expansions include Pandemic: On the Brin (2009), Pandemic: In the Lab (2013), and Pandemic: State of Emergency (2015).
