Pandemic Expansion : In the Lab
There's a whole new way to discover cures and win the game!
Travel around the world collecting samples of each disease, then use the Lab to sequence, characterize, and test your cures. Add sample cubes to one of the two lab dishes by taking the Treat Disease action. Seal yourself behind bio-hazard doors and send samples through the centrifuge. Place the sample sequences in the correct order to find a cure!
In the Lab provides two variants that shake up the Pandemic experience. You can take on the diseases by yourself in a solo game or split into two rival teams and race to cure and eradicate diseases, prevent outbreaks, and gain prestige.
Other than a little help from the CDC, you're on your own in the solo game. Stay in contact with your home base and discover the cures before it's too late. If you break into rival teams, curing diseases is still the ultimate goal, but the prestige you've earned over the course of the game determines the winner.
In the lab has four new Role cards, three new Event cards and challenges. You can combine these with the On the Brink expansion to create a whole new world of possibilities for Pandemic.
