Another friday night playing board games (must be getting old). This time we played Alhambra and, for the sake of team building, a cooperative game: Pandemic. Pandemic focus on fighting four different viral diseases that are spreading all over the world. Players get a role, so they can be specialized in a specific skill, and they've got to move around, healing population and, at the same time, trying to find the cure for each virus. Initially, the game seems pretty easy, but after losing 4 or 5 games in a row, one realizes that complexity grows exponentially as turns increase and, all in all, it requires good strategy and a fair amount of luck to actually succeed. I really like this game :)
