Pandemic is a cooperative game where you all win or you all lose.  You and your fellow players are members of a disease control team, working together to research cures and prevent additional outbreaks.  Each of you will assume a unique role with the team, with special abilities that will improve your team’s chances if applied wisely.  The object is to save humanity by discovering cures to 4 deadly diseases (Blue, Yellow, Black, and Red) that threaten to overtake the planet.

Players all start at a research station in Atlanta.  Infection has broken out in 9 different cities scattered throughout the world.  Players will use their unique abilities to fly around the world, build research stations, discover cures, and treat the deadly diseases.  At the end of each players’ turn infector cards will continue to add to the challenge of the game.  If you and your fellow players aren’t able to keep the disease contained before finding the necessary cures, the planet will be overrun and the game will end in defeat for everyone…Do you have what it takes to save humanity?
