Pandemic: Rapid Response
Disaster has struck! Cities around the world are in desperate need of food, water, vaccines, and other supplies. You and your team belong to the Crisis Response Unit (CRU), an international organisation that provides humanitarian relief around the world. Can you save humanity in time?
Natural disasters have struck cities across the globe. Recognising the overwhelming threat, the nations of the world have taken action and assembled the CRU: an elite team of doctors and specialists. With a specially equipped plane, you are uniquely capable of providing life-saving aid - anytime, anywhere.
Pandemic: Rapid Response is a race against time. Roll dice to create supplies, fly the plane, and make deliveries to cities in need. As the timer counts down, you must quickly coordinate and work together to react to new disasters. Will you and your team be able to respond in time?
The nations of the world have pooled their resources and assembled a diverse crew. Each of the 7 unique role cards features their own ability. The Analyst, Adjoua Soro, is able to reroll the dice up to 2 additional times. The Engineer, Soojin Sohn, can change any die result with a plane to a different symbol. Take turns as quickly as possible, using your role’s unique ability and strategically allocating your dice to be as efficient as possible when creating supplies.
Then when you’re ready for a new challenge, adjust the difficulty level or add Crisis Cards for a greater variety of obstacles to overcome. Now hurry - the timer is counting down and the world needs your help!
