Introducing the Pandemic: Hot Zone – North America Print & Play

Try the shorter, lighter version of the hit 2008 cooperative board game from home

Earlier this month, we announced the next game to join the Pandemic family, Pandemic: Hot Zone. Matt and Steve talked about the origins of the newest, lightest Pandemic game, the design process, and what makes it different from the original.

They also mentioned that we’d create a way for you to try the game from the comfort of your own home. Without further ado, we’re happy to announce the release of the Pandemic: Hot Zone print and play!

Pandemic: Hot Zone – North America is the first in a series of smaller, more portable versions of the beloved 2008 cooperative game, making it an excellent choice for a free-to-play, at-home demo.

The print-and-play files available below include Hot Zone’s small-footprint board and all of the cards you need to experience the game for yourself. You’ll have to gather a handful of proxy tokens to replace the usual pawns, cubes, and progress markers, either from other games or miscellaneous household finds (a great use for loose change). Once you print the files, cut along the guidelines, and assemble your board, your game is ready to play.
