In Pandemic: Contagion, the tables are turned: you are the disease, striking back against humanity!
In this decidedly non-cooperative stand-alone game inspired by Pandemic, you compete against other players to exterminate human civilization through worldwide infection.
Fuel your actions with cards that can spread disease by infecting new cities across the globe. You can also mutate your disease to accelerate the rate at which you draw cards, infect cities, or resist efforts to curb your growth.
The more people you infect and the faster you grow, the more points you’ll score. The disease with the highest death toll at the end of the game wins!
