World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King - A Pandemic System Board Game... has one hell of a long title. But it also brings the action of Pandemic to the world of World of Warcraft. In this preview, we get a look at the different pieces of equipment that players will have at their disposal while trying to save the world... of Warcraft!
From the article:
The heroes of Azeroth are mighty. However, the Lich King and his undead minions are not to be underestimated. Luckily, World of Warcraft®: Wrath of the Lich King® - A Pandemic System Board Game gives players all they need to fight back with Hero Cards.
Just like in World of Warcraft®, players are going to need the proper equipment in order to survive. A reliable weapon, a strong shield, a powerful healing potion, and a fast mount are all important things to have at the ready when the legions of undead are near. These are all available in the form of Hero Cards. The different types of cards are Fight, Defend, Heal, Travel, and the special Stronghold. Each one assists in different ways to help give players a much needed advantage.
On top of that, if players find themselves without the proper cards for certain situations, allies on the same space can assist by offering up their own Hero Cards. While players cannot trade cards among one another, they can play cards from their hand to assist fellow heroes. This new dynamic cardplay encourages players to use the cards to augment their actions, creating new strategies of play.
