This is an expansion. The Pandemic base game is required to play this expansion.
Your job of curing deadly diseases is about to get more difficult. State of Emergency, the third expansion for the hit cooperative game Pandemic, introduces three modules that provide unique ways to play and give you greater control over each game's difficulty. Take on one of five new roles as you tackle the Hinterlands Challenge and investigate disease strains that jump from animals to humans.
Travel to four locations spread across two new boards as you trace diseases to their source. If you don't act quickly, they'll soon spread to nearby cities and become even harder to contain. The Superbug Challenge raises the stakes even further by introducing a fifth disease that cannot be treated. Instead, players must collaborate to produce vaccine doses and eradicate the superbug before it's too late.
