Summary, etc.:
You and your fellow players are members of a skilled disease control team. You must work together to prevent disease outbreaks before 4 deadly diseases (Blue, Yellow, Black and Red) contaminate humanity while discovering their cures. You and your teammates will travel across the globe, treating infections while finding resourcese for cures. Pandemic is a cooperative game. The players all win or lose together. The goal is to discover cures for all 4 diseases. The players lose if: 8 outbreaks occur (a worldwide panic happens), not enough disease cubes are left when needed (a disease spreads too much), or not enough player cards are left when needed (your team runs out of time). Each player has a specific role with special abilities to improve the team's chances.
