Pandemic Rising Tide
For centuries, the Dutch have relied upon a series of dikes and wind-powered pumps to keep water from invading their lands. But with a quarter of the Netherlands reclaimed from the sea and the population constantly expanding, a new system is needed to hold back the ever-encroaching waters.
You and your friends play as a team of Dutch civil officials helping to modernize the water containment system. Your ultimate goal is to construct four hydraulic structures that will ensure the safety of your people for generations to come.
You must first buy yourself enough time by building:
- Dikes to control water flow
- Ports to facilitate travel
- Windmills to pump the water out of flooded lands.
But proceed with caution. A single misstep could send water spilling across the countryside.
Choose your actions carefully, work as a team, and usher in the Industrial Age!
Your team might be tasked with expanding the Dutch population into areas threatened by storm waters, constructing water pumps to protect the country's valuable textile industry, or building ports along the Maas River.
Each game features a new combination of Objective cards, creating a unique scenario every time you play. Every player takes on a specific role with special abilities.
Join together, play to your characters’ strengths, and stem the tide!
