Storms are brewing and the sea is growing restless. Will your efforts be enough to stem the rising tide?
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. Join together, play to your characters’ strengths, and stem the tide!
