The Pandemic games mostly tell a story over the whole world or a smaller part there off. A deadly virus has broken out and it is your team's job to eradicate this virus before it has spread to all the major cities in the world. Players work together as a team of scientists to create medicines that fight the virus and try to keep the virus quarantined so it won't go further in to the world.
This newest installment of the game you are no longer fighting a virus, but you try to save the Netherlands from the rising sea level that is trying to take over the country. The country has been divided in several regions that can contain water pumps and dikes to keep the water from entering this region. Blue cubes are used to represent the water that slowly but surely enters the different regions from the north.
By placing dikes in the correct positions on the map and using water pumps in partialy flooded areas to divert the water to drainage-basins your team can prevent further flooding of the map. But make sure you are always prepared for unforeseen catastrophes that can happen at any moment!
