Publisher Comments:

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. For example, the Operation 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.

But the diseases are outbreaking fast and time is running out: the team must try to stem the tide of infection in diseased areas while also towards cures.

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.

No. of players: 2-4

This is probably the best cooperative game out there, hands down. You and the other players take on the roles of disease specialists trying to contain, cure and eradicate four different diseases that are breaking out around the globe. Working with each other you try to avoid outbreaks and infections that come up during the game. There are multiple ways for everyone to lose but only one way to win. It's amazing how tense you can get once an infection begins to spread but it's a really fun game, even if you lose!

Usually a reader, I was happy to see that Powells carries this game. It is an excellent game, enjoyed by young (about age 8) and adults alike. I have spent many hours playing this game, and a friend's son made an edict that any time I visit, I am not welcome if I don't bring this game! He's just as addicted to this game as me! Great fun, and very unique that everyone either loses or wins, very much a team effort!
