6.3 Pandemic (2nd Edition)

Pandemic is not a board game for solo players. It is a game that relies on group participation and co-operation. Therefore, it is a game of team players. Besides, it is a board game for skill and strategies. Four deadly diseases are wreaking havoc and the baton to save humanity is in the hands of the skilled specialists. To turn the tide, you have to build stations and ultimately, find the vaccine. Curing the four diseases is the target; however, if that’s not possible, try to minimize the damage to humanity.
