Ages 12+. 20-30 minutes playtime. 2 players.
The plague is spreading in the world of humanity and in the underworld. Doctors from both worlds are trying hard to stop them at all costs. Will the plague devour the world, or will the tireless doctors save the world?
Pathogen is a two-player abstract game where you play against each other as the Doctor and the Plague on the map of white (world of humanity) and black (underworld) tiles. Each player will move their character pawn (Doctor or Plague) on the white tiles, and their follower (Demon or Dove) on the black tiles.
During the movement, you can place your influence tokens on the map to gain control of the world. When one player has placed their tokens in a way that connects the opposing sides of the map or built four towers (stacks of 4 or 5 influence tokens) in the four quadrants, they win the game!
