The players are disease-fighting specialists whose mission is to treat disease hotspots while researching cures for each of four plagues before they get out of hand.
One of the first great co-operative games, Pandemic that sees players racing back and forth across the globe, against the clock, trying to halt the spread of horrible diseases! What fun! Rightly regarded as a classic and now in a very reasonably priced new edition with lovely little translucent disease cubes.
The first edition summary includes all the rules from the expansion On the Brink. The second edition summary is currently for the core rules only. Each, of course, are customised with the appropriate graphics.
