Finally got to play the Cthulhu version of Pandemic, and it was a blast.
My son had played regular Pandemic, so he had a decent idea on how it all works and that helped us get underway quickly. We goofed up on a few rules and died faster than we were supposed to (I know, there are many ways to die and only one way to win) but set the game up and played again right away. The next day my sister joined in and we played from 3 until 7 or so, always finding new ways to lose. Finally, when we won a game, we called it a night.
We did "cheat" a little by allowing players to pick which characters they wanted instead of the random draw method. We decided after trying some options that if you don't have both the Hunter and Detective characters you are pretty much screwed before you even start.
Really a lot of fun and I hope they come up with some expansions for the game.
