Black and white baubles sit on the ripped game board surrounded by small red humanoid figures. These bright, red blood cells soldier across the board together in a pack looking out for any viruses that may come their way. Look out, they’re watching you. Pop Art shapes and colours provide a deceptively cheerful vision of Bio warfare.

The pieces can be as delicate as coral or as startling as sea mines. As an Outbreak player you can control this world – but maybe not?
