A Pandemic has broken out and as a member of the Center for Disease Control, you will need to find a cure before it gets out of hand! A truly cooperative, tension-filled game where all players represent members of a team of experts that must find the cures to four virulent diseases before they wipe out the world's population.
In Pandemic, players must plan their strategy to integrate their specialist's strengths together to control and cure the diseases. For example, the Operations Specialist can build research stations which are needed to find cures for the diseases; the Scientist needs only 4 cards of a particular disease to cure it instead of the normal 5. However, 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. If disease spreads uncontrolled, the players all lose. If they can cure all four diseases, they have defeated the Pandemic and win the game.
