Pandemic is a fully cooperative board game, in which the Earth is plagued with four deadly diseases.
The players control specialists, who travel around the world, treating the suffering population, and trying to discover cures for these diseases. Time is of the essence, as the diseases spread faster and faster, and new epidemics break out.
The specialists must work together, or they will have no chance of saving the world.
All players either win together, or lose together.
At the beginning of the game, 9 metropolitan areas have already been infected by the diseases. These cities are always drawn randomly. In this game, the worst places seem to be Atlanta, São Paulo and Johannesburg. Atlanta is also the city where all the specialists begin their mission. (apparently because the "Centers for Disease Control and Prevention" or CDC is located there)
The Scientist uses a special event: "one quiet night". This gives the Operations Expert some time to treat the yellow disease at south America, before outbreaks begin to occur.
