Just got this image today in my emails. I'm guessing that this is not a secret since it was on an open list, but I haven't seen this around. This is a new cover for the Pandemic reprint. I have no clue what is in the box or any details. Maybe some people with better connections than me can find anymore information.

Take care.

Hmmm.

Is this for the Michael Bay movie version of Pandemic?

Yeah, really. I thought the original version was fantastic and has always stood out really well on a game store shelf. Same goes for all of the graphics in the game... almost iconic, now. This is kind of cheesy looking and not nearly as distinguished. thumbsdown

I'm not digging it. Now I hope they haven't messed with anything inside the box, too. The map for Pandemic is just gorgeous IMHO. It bugs me that ad-wizards out there insist on messing with a good (or great) thing.

I think the art looks fine. In the first edition it always bothered me that the roles on the box and back of the role cards didn't match the art on the roles themselves. Maybe they will in this version.

Although this version only put four roles on the box. Man, that researcher is always off by herself when you need her.

I like the original, but maybe this will stand out at Target and sell a few more copies.

I actually wanted a cover change-less of the grey scientist and I would have been happy.
This cover is atrocious.

Hmm, I guess I can see where the mostly black box might have given an impression that's not as family friendly... I suppose I don't care, as I'll always have my copy. I just hope that they haven't changed the components and board to the extent that the long-rumored second expansion is geared to match the newer version, and doesn't match too well with the original.

Yeah, definitely the kind of movie poster you look at and think 'waste of money'.

Really horrible. Is there a shortage of people with design aesthetic?

The original box art was nothing to write home about, but I like this one even less. It does look like a movie poster. I never liked the fuzzy 70s lamp shade in the original.

Bad cover. Looks like the people who came up with it and the people who approved it, were both from the popcorn eating, movie going group. It's a board game, not a direct to video movie.

Yeah, never much liked the original cover of Pandemic much. Always thought they could make a decent redesign...this isn't it. How could you go backwards?

And what's with the obsession that 20 year olds are going to save the world, reminds me of too many TV shows which don't feature anyone who looks over 30!

I've become a grumpy old man!

I don't really like the Pandemic North American box and game art but it has grown on me. I don't find this more appealing but I think it will sell better for Z-man. So best wishes for them and Matt Leacock.

Then there would be fighter jets scrambling overhead busting through fireworks.

I don't think it's so bad. The subjects and layout are similar to the other covers; the main difference is they used photographs of live models instead of hand-drawn art. At least I think that's what it is, the linked image only has small sizes. And what's so wrong with that?

We don't even know if this is real or a spoof. Nobody seems to have confirmation that the picture is genuine and I don't pretent it is genuine also. I only find it out in a recent mailing list.
