Z-Man Games Announce Pandemic: Rising Tide

Sept 9, 2017

Z-Man Games is happy to announce Pandemic: Rising Tide, the next title in the new Survival Series of Pandemic games!

Following the widely popular Pandemic: Iberia, the next game in the Survival SeriesPandemic: Rising Tide introduces players to an entirely new way to enjoy Pandemic. It is the dawn of the Industrial Age in the Netherlands. For centuries, the country has relied upon a series of dikes and wind-powered pumps to keep it safe from the constant threat of flooding from the North Sea. But this system is no longer enough.

As the next game in the Survival SeriesPandemic: Rising Tide continues the hallmarks of the series. Each game enjoys a strong resemblance to the original Pandemic while uniquely adapting them to a new locale. On the lakes and polders of the Netherlands, the threat is not from diseases but from the water itself. With land becoming more and more scarce and water levels rising by the day, a modern system is needed to stem the rising tide.

In Pandemic: Rising Tide, it is your goal to avert tragedy by constructing four modern hydraulic structures in strategic locations that will help you defend the country from being reclaimed by the ocean. Storms are brewing and the seas are restless. It will take all your guile to control the flow of water long enough to usher in the future of the Netherlands. It’s time to get to work.

Pandemic Legacy Season 2 Release Announced by Z-Man Games

zm7172_box-shot-768x357

June 26, 2017

The world is on the brink of total collapse. Already devastated by a terrible plague, much of the globe has gone dark. Small groups of survivors struggle to keep the world alive, but their efforts are no longer enough. The world needs leaders to rise up and find the way back from the brink of extinction. That task has fallen to you. You must find a way or nobody will. You are humanity’s last chance.

Z-Man Games is excited to announce the upcoming release of Pandemic Legacy: Season 2, the standalone follow-up to the critically-acclaimed and best-selling Pandemic Legacy: Season 1.

A cooperative legacy game for two to four players, Pandemic Legacy: Season 2 immerses players in a harrowing tale of survival. It is seventy-one years after the events of Pandemic Legacy: Season 1, and humanity has been brought to its knees. A network of the last known cities persists, supplied by the “havens,” isolated stations floating in the ocean far from the plague. Three generations of survivors have called the havens home. Most of them have never set foot on the mainland. But now supplies are running low and the people have turned to you to lead. It is up to you to save what remaining cities you can and stop the world from ending for good.

Pandemic Legacy: Season 2 offers a dynamic experience that sweeps players up in a desperate fight for survival. Having grown up on the havens, the mainland is largely a mystery to you. But now you must travel there to maintain the grid of remaining cities and explore the areas of the world that have fallen dark.

This task will not be easy. The plague has hit the mainland hard and there is no hope of developing a cure. The cities that remain need the supplies you provide to keep hanging on. Pandemic Legacy: Season 2 presents a unique spin on the classic Pandemic formula. The City, Epidemic, and Event cards all return, but instead of removing Disease cubes from the board, you must now add Supply cubes to ward off the plague.

Pandemic Iberia previewed by Z-Man

September 19th, 2016

With new games come new mechanics, and this year’s limited collector’s edition – the new Pandemic Iberia – surely didn’t want to let the long-time fans of the 8 years old franchise down!
Set in the mid-19th century, Pandemic Iberia, puts you in the roles of members of The Second Royal Philanthropic Expedition. You are embarking on a mission to discover the origins of diseases that are devastating the countryside of the Iberian Peninsula, but the modern technologies that have inspired Pandemic’s original mechanics in 2008 are nowhere to be found, obviously.
So… how can you save the world this time around? ?
Releasing this fall as a ONE TIME ONLY PRINT RUN! Keep your eyes open for it!
