In Doctor Panic, you are a surgical team from the most prestigious hospital in the area. Your goal: Work together as a team to save a patient who just arrived on a stretcher before time runs out!
To accomplish this, you need to perform a series of medical treatments that have been prepared before the game. One or more players serve as overseers — emergency room managers, as it were — and they give tasks to the other medical personnel on hand: find a combination of drugs in this batch of cards; figure out the dose you need to administer by consulting this chart; stitch up a wound by "stitching" on a game board with needle and thread; and so on. If you complete all of the treatments before the final heart attack on the soundtrack, you are victorious! If not, you'll have to receive additional training..
