You are specialists at the CDC/Atlanta where you watch several virulent diseases break out simultaneously all over the world. The team mission is to prevent a worldwide pandemic outbreak, treating hot-spots while researching cures for each of the four plagues before they get out of hand. Players must plan their strategy to mesh their specialists' strengths before the diseases overwhelm the world. But the diseases are breaking out fast and time is running out: the team must try to stem the tide of infection in diseased areas while developing cures. Pandemic is a truly cooperative game: if diseases spread uncontrolled, the players all lose together.
Pandemic Board Game contains: 1 game board, 7 role cards with matching pawns, 6 research stations, 6 wooden markers, 48 infection cards, 59 player cards, reference cards, and rulebook. This new edition of Pandemic has been entirely redesigned and includes two new roles: the Contingency Planner and the Quarantine Specialist.
Pandemic Board Game is recommended for 2-4 players ages 8 and up, and takes approximately 45 minutes to play.
