About Matt Leacock
Matt Leacock thought there were too many games on the market where a single player would end up dominating the others, leaving them handcuffed. For him, cooperative games were a revelation. They allowed players to work together toward the same goal. From this perspective, the theme for Pandemic came naturally. The real challenge was to develop efficient mechanics. Leacock even tested his prototype with people working in the medical fields to make sure everything was coherent and effective.
Pandemic Survival is an extreme version of Pandemic where teams of 2 players face each other simultaneously with the same objective in mind: be the first team to find all four cures or be the sole survivor at the end of the game.
During this unique experience, each team will face the same starting situation: identical roles, infected cities, and the same player cards in the same order. Only their strategic choices will differentiate them and prove to be a winning or losing strategy. In addition to this, all the tournament material was thought out in order to add to the experience.
The experience alone is worth the challenge, but there are also some fantastic prizes that can be won along the way to the World Championship!
The winning team of the World Championship will gain the ability of the Airlift card: to go to any city on the Pandemic board (together of separately) for a total prize value of up to $5,000!**
This prize includes:
- 1 week (7 day) vacation to the city of their choosing on the Pandemic board.***
- 2 round-trip economy class airplane tickets from the airport nearest to the home of the winners to the International airport of the city of their choosing on the Pandemic board.
