Asmodee has released PDF files for the newest game in the Pandemic line of games, Pandemic: Hot Zone - North America.  Designed by the original Pandemic designer, Matt Leacock, this new game is a streamlined version of the original game with a shorter play time.  The game plays 2-4 players, ages 8 and up, in about 30 minutes.  Besides the print-and-play version, there is also a retail release of the game available.

In Pandemic: Hot Zone - North America, players must cooperatively work together to cure 3 diseases that are threatening North America.  The players take on the roles of the Researcher, the Dispatcher, the Medic, and/or the Generalist, each of whom has their own special ability, trying to keep outbreaks from happening while trying to combat the diseases before things get out of hand.

If you are interested in giving this shorter version of Pandemic a shot, the print-and-play files can be found here.  For free!
