Pandemic: The Cure
This dice-based version of Pandemic sets up in less than a minute and plays in 30 minutes. Like the board game it's based on, four diseases threaten the world and it’s up to your team to save humanity.
Each player takes on a different role that has its own unique set of dice and abilities – and players must take advantage of their specializations if they are to have any hope of winning the game. Players can roll their dice as often as they like, but the more times they re-roll for the perfect turn, the more likely the next epidemic will occur.
Players lose if too many outbreaks occur, too many people are infected, or the rate of infection gets too high. If players can discover the cures to the diseases, however, they win and humanity is saved!
