PANDEMIC is a family of (mostly) cooperative board games by Matt Leacock (and others) based on the premise that several diseases have broken out in the world, each threatening to wipe out a region. Through cooperation rather than on competitiveness. the goal is to discover all cures before any of several game-losing conditions are reached.
Four diseases have broken out in the world and it is up to a team of specialists in various fields to find cures for these diseases before mankind is wiped out. Players must work together, playing to their characters' strengths and planning their strategy of eradication before the diseases overwhelm the world with ever-increasing outbreaks. A truly cooperative game where you all win or you all lose. The 2013 edition of Pandemic includes two new characters – the Contingency Planner and the Quarantine Specialist – not available in earlier editions of the game. Part of the PANDEMIC game series.
