Z-Man Games is known for a lot of popular titles, but Pandemic is at the heart of their catalog. One of their newest games coming to shelves later in 2021 is a mix of the Pandemic system combined with the theme of World of Warcraft. World of Warcraft®: Wrath of the Lich King – A Pandemic System Board Game is a 1-5 player cooperative game where the heroes band together to overtake the Lich King.
Here are some more details from Z-Man Games:
Journey to Northrend, the cold and unforgiving northern continent of Azeroth, where heroes utilize familiar mechanics of the Pandemic series, but with fantastical tweaks, to truly bring a unique experience with World of Warcraft®: Wrath of the Lich King – A Pandemic System Board Game.
Forts, temples, battlegrounds, and more populate the extra-large game board as heroes journey across the cold landscape, working together as they make their way to iconic locations to deal with the rising threat of the Lich King’s ghouls. These minions attack players, hindering their progress toward ridding the world of their master. Too many ghouls spawning in a single area summons powerful and aggressive abominations, horrid undead beasts twisted by the Lich King’s power that will seek out the nearest hero and engage them.
Become legendary characters such as Thrall, Warchief of the Horde; Varian Wrynn, King of Stormwind; Sylvanas Windrunner, Banshee Queen of the Forsaken; and many others, all with their own unique abilities.
Throughout the game, players will collect hero cards that serve as equipment, special mounts, healing potions, and more. The game relies on card/hand management and dice rolling.
World of Warcraft®: Wrath of the Lich King – A Pandemic System Board Game is listed at $59.99 for pre-order on Z-Man Games’ website.
