Return of the 2018 Cambridge Science festival game, Pathogen!  The 2020 Lockdown version has been adapted for remote play, and includes new events inspired by this year. 

Could you solve a pandemic? 

This game puts you in the heart of the World Health Organisation, assigned to one of five teams to investigate reports of an emerging pandemic. It is played in real time and requires you to make fast moral decisions and solve science-based puzzles.  Your choices will make a difference to millions of lives

This game will be run on Discord and you will need an account to take part. The accounts are free, but you need to be at least 13.

The game will include text conversations between participants and videos from the organisers. All videos will have closed captions and text descriptions of their contents. If you have access needs beyond this, please contact the organiser to potential accomodations.
