Pandemic Legacy: Season 2
by Matt Leacock and Rob Daviau
Pandemic Legacy is a stand-alone, cooperative game for 2–4 players. Unlike most other games, actions you take in Pandemic Legacy carry over to future games. As you continue to play, the decisions your group makes will permanently shape your world. Each game is about 45–60 minutes and players will play 12–24 games before they reach the end of the story.
I co-designed Pandemic Legacy: Seasons 1 and 2 with Rob Daviau who pioneered legacy-style gaming in Risk Legacy.
Pandemic Legacy: Season 2 won the German Sonderpreis (Special Prize) in 2018 – the first time it was awarded in eight years.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do you need to play Season 1 before you can play Season 2?
No, Pandemic Legacy: Season 2 is a fully standalone game. There are elements of the storyline that connect the two games, but you're not required to own or have played Season 1.
Can you swap players in and out as you play?
Yes, the game supports 2, 3, or 4 players. You can add a player in the middle of the campaign, drop one out, or swap players in and out as you play.
Is there a difference between the yellow and black boxes?
There is no difference other than the cover and the cover of the rulebook. Really.
Can I replay Pandemic Legacy Season 2 after I'm done with the campaign?
The game is finished after you complete the campaign. While you can possibly play the game 12–24 times, expect about 16-18 games.
I have a different question, can you help?
We hope to have a full FAQ soon after release.
Until then, drop me a line.
