As skilled members of a disease-fighting team, you and the other players work together to keep the world safe from outbreaks and epidemics. Only through teamwork will you have a chance to find a cure. Pandemic is a cooperative board game in which players work as a team to treat infections around the world while gathering resources for cures. First published in 2007, the game's distinct combination of cooperative gameplay, engrossing premise and compelling design have proved a hit with everyone from hard-core gamers to casual players. The Pandemic game line includes multiple expansions and stand-alone titles. You and your team are the only things standing in the way of deadly diseases that threaten the world. The fate of humanity is in your hands.

From the manufacturer
Do you have what it takes to save humanity?
As skilled members of a disease-fighting team, you must keep four deadly diseases at bay while discovering their cures. You and your teammates will travel across the globe, treating infections while finding resources for cures. You must work together, using your individual strengths, to succeed. The clock is ticking as outbreaks and epidemics fuel the spreading plagues. Can you find all four cures in time?
How it’s played
The game board depicts several major population centres on a stylised map of the Earth. 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. A deck of cards provides the players with these abilities, but sprinkled throughout this deck are Epidemic! cards that accelerate and intensify the diseases' activity. A second, separate deck of cards controls the 'normal' spread of the infections.
Different roles, same goals
Taking a unique role within the team, players must plan their strategy to mesh with their specialists' strengths in order to conquer the diseases which are spreading quickly and time is running out. If one or more diseases spread beyond recovery or if too much time elapses, the players all lose. If they cure the four diseases, they all win!
Lots of ways to lose, only one way to win
There is only one way to beat Pandemic: cure the diseases, but there are numerous ways to lose. Run out of player cards, hit the outbreak limit or run out of disease cubes to place on the board. Play carefully and keep on top of potential outbreaks or the game will beat you.
What’s in the box
Game board, seven role cards (with matching pawns), six research stations, six wooden markers, 96 disease cubes, 48 infection cards, 59 player cards, reference cards and rulebook
- From the phenominal board game designer Matt Leacock
- A fully co-operative board game where players win or lose together
- 7 unique role cards with different abilities add a twist to each new game
- Lots of ways to lose, but only one way to win

Amazon kindly replaced the poor print but unfortunately the second was as bad. I have reported this and Amazon are now looking into this after a second has been reported. Please see photos.
Amazon are refunding me but it’s been a bit of a waste of time and money ( until refunded. ) I would advise buying elsewhere until these batch problems are sorted. - written Jan 2018
The game itself is fantastic (I have played multiple times with a friend's copy) but I recommend you buy from another seller to ensure you receive a legitimate copy of the game.
The quality of the game is excellent, it is very well made and tokens are made from plastic. It is better than previous version which was from cardboard.
Main plus for this game is that it doesn't have a lot of cards or tokens. It has 2 decks of cards, 6 research stations, pawns and disease cubes. That's it! So, it is very easy to prepare the game (just few minutes) and there is very small chance to lose the tokens like it is with bigger games which consist of sooo many small details, that it is mind blowing to put it all back together.
So, I definitely recommend this game and I think that this game should be in everyone's collection if they are interested in gaming even just a little bit. It will be fun to play with friends and family. And from my own experience, I don't know anybody who didn't like the game.
We opened this on Boxing Day and ended up playing about 6 games back-to-back (with different people joining in for different rounds). We started on the easy level and beat the game 4 times (easy and standard level). But were beaten twice by the game on the advanced level (6 epidemic cards in the deck).
Loved the different characters (and their different skills), the co-operative nature of the game and how quickly you're in the thick of an epidemic! We'd definitely consider buying other games in this series and are already looking at Pandemic Legacy.
Was this game too much for our 10-year-old? Probably, given the "pain in the bum" mood he was in but his younger brother came to watch us and joined in for a game. He understood the rules, the basic tactics and liked the fact it was a co-operative game (so we could help him out and explain what we were doing). So, if your kids are into board games, don't be put off. Catch them in the right mood and they'll love this.
The other half and I are pretty nerdy and this game is perfect for us.
I love the fact it is so hard to win, especially if you have all the epidemic cards in play and you both have less than perfect roles!!
If you are a fan of plague inc. you will absolutely love this - it's absolutely brilliant.
Play lasts for about an hour with 2 people playing.
I recommend watching the video "getting started" guide from the makers before playing for the first time. Not only does it explain things much easier than the booklet - being able to visually see the board set up taking place is much quicker!!
