Virus the Card Game

Be the Mad Scientist you always wanted to become. Create a Virus that is 100% Lethal!

Virus the Card Game is an exciting way to be the mad scientist you always wanted to become. It allows you to mutate a virus making it more and more lethal.

The player that makes their virus 100% lethal first wins!

What is Virus the Card Game?

It is a Virus Strain building game. You assume the role of a mad scientist who is intent on creating a lethal pathogen.

It was designed around these three different goals.

Player Friendly - It is a card game that is played quickly with simultaneous gameplay. No sitting around for your turn to come up. And it's simple to learn!

Deadly Fun - Even though the subject is serious, it's a fun game with funny flavor text so you can enjoy it with your friends. It's also great for people with an interest in science or biology.

Mutate a Virus - Each player is attempting to mutate their Virus to be the biggest, baddest virus on the table. You will add more and more cards to your Virus by making new Virus Strains. This adds Lethality Points with every card you play.

The Cards - There are three types of cards you will use during gameplay. They are minimalist and simple by design, so you can focus on building your deadly pathogen!

Transmission - Transmission cards are the way you begin a Virus Strain. They include cards like Oral, Gastrointestinal, and Blood.

Vector - Vector cards are new ways your virus has begun spreading after you lay down a Transmission card. They include things like Ticks, Worms, and Droplet Nuclei.

Mutation - Mutation cards are the way you evolve your virus to make it more lethal. Each Mutation is done in different Stages, which lead to more serious conditions and more Lethality Points. Included are things like Sepsis, Pneumonia, and Gangrene.

Contents - Contains 72 cards! Designed for Ages 12 and up. For 2 to 4 players.
