A pandemic has struck! A host of deadly and virulent diseases have broken out across the world. As a player you take on the role of a disease-fighting specialist with the aim to treat each disease in its location before it spreads. On each turn, a player can use up to four actions to travel between cities, treat infected populaces, discover a cure, or build a research station. Pick from a deck of cards to choose your next move but beware, spread through the pack are Epidemic cards thatt accelerate the spread of infection. Players must plan and work together, using each other's strengths to try to conquer the world's diseases. Either all players win, or all lose.
