An all new game based on Pandemic, perhaps the best cooperative game ever published, will be available in 2014. Publisher Z-Man Games announced Pandemic: The Cure, a cooperative dice game designed by Matt Leacock, on its website recently.
"Pandemic: The Cure sets up in less than a minute and plays in 30 minutes," according to Z-Man Games. "Players roll dice each turn to determine the actions available to them. They can fly and sail between the six major population centers of the world, treat disease in their current region, collect samples for further study, and exchange knowledge to help them in their goal of discovering cures. Each player takes on a different role that has its own unique set of dice and abilities."
According to Z-Man's announcement, Pandemic: The Cure is scheduled to be released "in the second half of 2014." The game premiered at BGG.con 2013; here's a look at it from W. Eric Martin.
