    INTRODUCTION: There is a virus outbreak in town. Stay safe against virus exposure by dealing with real-life situations. The deck has 3 types of cards: Protect cards, Panic cards, and Power cards.

Shuffle the Deck and place it face down on the table. As you play, throw cards face-up into the Discard pile. HOW TO PLAY: Players start with no cards. Choose any player to start and continue in a clockwise direction. For each turn, draw 1 card from the Deck into your hand. Look at it but do not show it to the others. Choose to pass your turn or play an action by discarding cards face-up into the Discard pile. You can play 1 of 3 actions: Use 1 power card and perform the effect described; or, discard any 3 panic cards to steal 1 card from any player; or, discard 3 of the same cards to pick any 1 card from the Discard pile.
