Named one of the Top 30 Solitaire Board Games by Box of Delights!
Voted one of the 2013 Best Thematic Solitaire Games for the Spare Time Challenged on BoardGameGeek!
James Franklin — Patient Zero — collapses after stepping off a plane from the Congo at JFK International Airport. He is rushed to Forest Hills Hospital where he is placed in an isolation ward. It is quickly discovered he has Morbusian, a constantly mutating virus that is resistant to all known antivirals. The survival of humanity itself is at stake!
In Infection: Humanity's Last Gasp you are the director of the Department of Plague Control (DPC) field office in New York City. You make the decisions about what parts of the virus to study, which personnel to hire, and what equipment to purchase. You'll soon discover you are working with an eccentric group of scientists who don't always work well together — and one very resourceful lab rat named Marvin. As the casualties increase, so does the stress and mistakes made, as you try to complete your vaccine before time runs out for all of mankind!
This strategy game uses simple mechanics in a multitude of combinations to create engaging, deep gameplay as you try to eliminate an evolving virus that could spell the end of the human race. While random events from the Status Reports might throw a wrench in your plans (or occasionally help you out), you'll use the Lab Personnel and Equipment you've hired to piece together randomly generated proteins into the different parts of a vaccine, all while managing dwindling funding resources as the Death Toll Track climbs. Each time that your Containment fails you come one step closer to losing this battle, so make sure that you push everyone to their limits before the infection reaches critical levels.
The game features 14 challenging viruses to cure as well as a custom game mode to play with optional game rules.

Great digital version of board game
Started off playing the board game. Then found there was a digital version. Immediate purchase! It's nice to have a this portable version when I can't get the physical game to the table.
50% Skill + 50% Random = 100% Brilliant!
Simpler than Pandemic gameplay is perfect for when you want something casual. Feels stylish and relaxing yet cerebral. Art, design, and sound are very impressive.
I enjoy it as a meatier alternative to solitaire and match 3's. Definitely not a brain burner, but there are some meaningful and tense decisions to be made. Plenty of randomness keeps things exciting, but if you hate dice games like Elder Signs or King of Tokyo, then this game isn't for you.
Lots of fun attention to detail. Ex. You aren't just auto-dealt 4 proteins. You pick'em out of a petri-dish, and they actually float and bounce around. Pure whimsy, but reveals how the experience has been polished to perfection.
No crashes and only 1 minor glitch (chemo-stat item doesn't seem to work) encountered after many hours of play. My only complaints: needs option to speed up or skip the containment breach animations, store items require trial and error, and game rules are a bit scattered.
Loving this game!
Loving this game! My only problem is that I have a lot of work to do this week, and this game is distracting me!
