Combining the cooperative gameplay of Pandemic with innovative new mechanisms, Pandemic: Fall of Rome takes players back in history to the time of the world’s greatest empire: Rome. A weakened military has left the borders open to invasion from countless tribes such as the Anglo-Saxons, Goths, Vandals, and Huns. As you march through the Roman Empire, you must recruit armies, fortify cities, forge alliances, and face off against the invading hordes in battle.

Top 5 in Pre-Orders:
Root: Riverfolk Expansion
A Feast for Odin: The Norwegians
Root and the Riverfolk expansion have dominated the pre-orders in October. The first edition of Root sold out quickly, but the reprint is supposed to arrive in January/February together with the expansion. A Feast for Odin is a very popular game, so it’s no surprise that the expansion has made it into our Top 5. Reykholt is the new game by Uwe Rosenberg and as all his games, gamers seem to like them all. Key Flow is a new card driven game based on the Keyflower.
Pandemic Legacy: Season 2 is an epic cooperative game for 2 to 4 players. Unlike most other games, this one is working against you. What’s more, some of the actions you take in Pandemic Legacy will carry over to future games. No two worlds will ever be alike!
Like Season 1 there will be two different box designs for Season 2, but the components of the game are the same. This is meant for players who would like to run two different games at the same time.
