Alarm! At emergency dispatch, police officers, fire constables and ambulance drivers are making ready in a haste to dispatch and help anyone in need.
But there are several crisis at once, so the different crew has to work out together which order the emergencies are resolved.
Alarm is a cooperative game, where players win or lose as a team. They will win if they succeed to solve all emergencies, and will lose if they don't manage before the deck runs out for a second time, or if the alarm is triggered in all emergencies at once.
