Pandemic is a beloved board game that has had numerous popular spin-offs as Z-Man Games likes to bring you new opportunities to explore the Pandemic world in new ways. Pandemic: Rapid Response will be the next in the family. But while previous Pandemic games let you calmly stop and think about what to do for your next move, that amount of time is rarely available during a disaster. As such, Pandemic: Rapid Response will be a real-time board game, where split-second decisions are what keep you from losing.
From the announcement:
Pandemic: Rapid Response is a race against time. Set in the beloved Pandemic universe, this real-time board game challenges players to create supplies and deliver aid to cities in need around the world. You must quickly coordinate and work together to react to new disasters. Will you and your team be able to respond in time?
In the US, Pandemic: Rapid Response will be available exclusively at Target. Outside the US, Pandemic: Rapid Response will be available through standard board game channels. In either case, make sure to pre-order your copy so you're ready to save humanity!
