Speaking of which, we had our first game of pandemic in ages last weekend. We've won a fair few games now so decided to up the difficulty by putting more epidemic cards in play. We got our arses absolutely kicked by the game :lol: The board was just swamped with pieces in the end, and we lost by running out of player cards.

We only played with 4 and even then it came down to the last turn, I couldnt imagine how it would even be possible to play with 5 or 6 epidemics, it would be way too much.

I played Pandemic Rapid Response the other night. A great dice-based variant of the game worth a go for Pandemic veterans.

Anyone played much 7th Continent?

Had a go yesterday and while I really liked it - it seemed really punishing.

We could not find the second cog anywhere (I think we missed something in rules on a "may" change card number and made it mandatory) and failed to get off 2nd Island and back to start.

Seemed odd that your personal "deck" has so many interesting cards you can't use until you level up.


Still really liked the idea and looking forward to trying again

Pandemic Legacy 1 : Sepetember


Another solid game of this - the mechanics are still just complex eneough to keep you costantly on toes.


We lost our first game in September, but completed the new objective added that month...so the second game took some turns (MASSIVE SPOILERS)


We've been played! We've been helping paramiltary take over the world!

And Private Dancer - our most powerful and best punned character - is a traitor! We had to tear him up :(

Why our funding keeps getting cut makes perfect in game story sense!

Some new "show" (not discard) cards arrived and we've tooled up with C4. We're not fighting diseases and the man...and it's great.

We knew we were failing September early, so rushed to ensure we'd completed all outstanding searches...but that meant Red...the disease we'd most had under control...is now largely faded cities. Epp.


We only have the 3 objectives (for now), Cure 3 diseases, quantrine 7 cities and blow up 2 bases...but even so September late was still pretty gosh darn close



I love this game
