DISASTER HAS STRUCK

Disaster has struck! Natural disasters are affecting cities across the globe. Cities around the world are in desperate need of food, water, vaccines, and other supplies. You and your team belong to the Crisis Response Unit (CRU), an international organization that provides humanitarian relief around the world. With a military-grade cargo plane that’s been retrofitted to produce and store valuable supplies, you are uniquely capable of providing life-saving aid—anytime, anywhere. Can you save humanity in time?

RESPONDING IN TIME

Like the critically acclaimed Pandemic, Pandemic: Rapid Response is a cooperative game with players working together to win. However, because Pandemic: Rapid Response is played entirely in real time, it offers a whole new Pandemic experience. Players must quickly and efficiently determine which cities need what types of aid, create those supplies, and fly to the disaster zone to make the drop—all before time runs out.

Players will need to move around inside the plane to the various supply rooms to generate the five types of supplies: vaccines, food, power, first aid, and water. As new disasters occur, each city will have different needs, represented by the symbols on that city’s card.

Each player has a set of six custom dice, which they’ll use to do actions on their turn. Players take turns one at a time, but they must do so as quickly as possible since the sand timer is always running. On a player’s turn they can roll their dice up to three times to try and get the symbols they need to then spend those dice as actions.

Dice can be spent to do various actions, such as move your pawn around the plane, fly the plane itself to the next city along the flightpath, generate supplies, or deliver cargo. When generating supplies, you’ll need to be in the room to place the matching dice. For example, Tokyo will need two crates of food supplies, so at some point one player will roll their dice aiming for food symbols. If they are in the food supply room, they can assign those dice to the matching slots. Multiple players can assign dice in the same room over multiple turns, but once a die has been assigned to a room, it is locked in place until the room is activated. Activating a room will generate the supply crates that you’ll need to deliver to cities.

Once you’ve generated enough supply crates for what a city needs, you can make a supply drop by flying the plane to that city’s location and delivering the crates from the cargo hold. If you and your team manage to deliver supplies to all the cities before time runs out, your mission is a success and you win!
