Pandemic set the bar for cooperative games when it was first released in 2008. Since then, the game’s unique premise and compelling design have attracted a large audience and led to several expansions and standalone games. 

Pandemic Survival builds on this core strength and immerses players in an extreme version of Pandemic where teams of two face compete against the same scenario simultaneously with the same objectives in mind: be the first team to find all four cures or be the sole survivor at the end of the game. During these events, each team faces the same starting situation: identical roles, infected cities, and the same player cards in the same order.

Only their strategic choices can differentiate them and prove to be a winning or losing strategy. Successful teams are able to stay one step ahead of both the diseases and other teams by working as efficiently as possible. With a little more than a minute to complete each turn, Pandemic Survival is a thrilling experience unlike any other.
