Fun but confusing

It's quite a good game, it gets really good when you have people saying things like "I'm gonna bang you." My only issue would be that the instructions aren't as clear as they could be, but when you get the hang of it its great fun.

Excellent brain burner.

Being a fan of detective TV shows, I was intrigued and knowing my partner has a love of them too, I picked this up. <br /> It is a fantastic game. <br /> This game ticks every box and will scratch any and every investigative itch you have.<br /> There is a very neat use of an online database, thereby needing a laptop or tablet, which I know puts some people off, but it's never intrusive, and will not solve the case for you.<br /> You'll need old fashioned teamwork, have to take notes, and although it is solo-able, I think in this case many heads are better than one.<br /> It is totally immersive. The first case took almost 3 hrs, (which is average I think) but you won't notice it going. <br /> Highly recommended. <br /> <br />

Brilliant Game

I love this game. I love to play solo games, and this was a brilliant game to play solo (as well as with other players). The art work in this game is really something to be appreciative of. Endless game play and excellent quality pieces.

An absorbing, exciting and genuinely collaborative game.

Groan! a game with this title - NOW? Our family of 5 has tried lots of collaborative/ team work games over the years.... only to have them end in fights, or be left on the shelf after just one outing. With Pandemic, the tension runs high and it's amazing how fast everyone is drawn into the adrenaline rush of beating the outbreak... but the ONLY way to win is to work together! That doesn't mean being a team is always easy; there's lots of debate and discussion, but the sense of time running out focuses the mind, so everyone comes to appreciate one another's roles, work to make the most of these, and gets on with it. It's novel, exciting, exhausting! and reasonably quick, not long and drawn out. It's a great game for a family or a group! (There are 5 of us, all teens or adults.)

Zombies everywhere! Great fun

The game is great fun and is flowing surprisingly easy despite how complex the game appear, and is fairly easy to pick up. (Somebody that have never played before can quickly pick up the game playing with somebody that have had a few playthroughs) <br /> <br /> The "player vs the board" also functions very well, all zombies move in ways that leaves no room for interpretation so the game does not suffer from not having a GM, so everybody gets to fight zombies without anybody having to GM, and it works with with some players controlling multiple survivors, so you can easy play 6 survivor quests with only 2 players.<br /> <br /> The plastic dashboards for games are amazing! it makes it a lot easier playing as everything is "locked" in place nicely and there is no odd tokens or cards lose on the table.<br /> <br /> If you are a miniature painter (like me) the zombie models are not the most amazing looking models. they seem have a some big moldlines and a couple of the zombies appear to have lost a little details in the casting.<br /> However I dont consider this a major issue as the zombies are a just a horde and not the models you want to spend hours painting.<br /> I also recommend "Games Workshop Contrast Paints" if you are looking to give the zimbies a little colour (and I highly recommend that)<br /> <br /> The survivor models on the other hand looks amazing! minimal moldlines and flash, and good sharp details. <br /> <br />

Unusual and So Fun!

This is a really fun game. So easy but also you need to really use your brain for thinking! Played with family. Youngest age 8 but was really enjoyed by all ages. Beautiful artwork. We’ll be playing this game for years and years.

Played this game with friends who never played a board game in their life, we were up and flying in no time. We loved the theme, the haunt mechanic is exciting, never knowing what you get in terms of the second half of the game. Each game is a funny story to tell afterwards to your board game buddies.

When you've got the players, Dune is a gem.

It's hard to find dedicated players to stick around long enough to listen to the advanced rules, especially if they aren't into the theme, but if you do find them, it's a spicy meatball.
