In Pandemic: Rising Tide from Z-Man Games and Asmodee, storms are brewing and the sea is growing restless. Will your efforts be enough to stem the rising tide?
In the Netherlands, flooding from North sea storms and over flowing rivers are a constant threat. Join the effort to keep the country safe in Pandemic: rising tide, a tense new take on Pandemic for two to five players. In every game of Pandemic: rising tide, you join a team of Dutch Civil officials striving to keep the ever-encroaching waters at bay.
Sailing these water-filled regions, you need to build dikes to control water flow, ports to facilitate travel, and windmills to pump water out of flooded lands. Ultimately, only teamwork will help you keep the waters at bay long enough to build the modern hydraulic structures that will help you defend against the Flood!
Storms On The Horizon
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. In Pandemic: Rising Tide, 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 the Dutch people for generations to come. To accomplish this task, however, you must first buy yourself enough time by building dikes to control water flow, ports to facilitate travel, and 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!
More Water, More Problems
Combining the addictive cooperative gameplay of Pandemic with innovative new mechanics, Pandemic: Rising Tide takes players on an exciting journey across the Netherlands. As you sail these water-filled regions, you’ll be faced with a variety of problems caused by flooding and Rising Tide provides a variety of objectives to simulate this.
Beyond building the four hydraulic structures, 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. To improve your team’s chances of completing them, every player takes on a specific role with special abilities.
