Because I know you want to brag about them. Especially if you got those awesome petri dishes from On the Brink, with the labels that begged to be filled in. Everyone thinks they're hilarious (I know *I* am), so I'm curious... what did you name the 4 (or 5) colored diseases in Pandemic? Did you pick real diseases? Or inside jokes with your gaming group perhaps? Or maybe just some random phrase with the color in it that you found hysterical at 3 in the morning?

And, so that we don't have a geeklist full of just Pandemic and its expansions, link to an obscure game whose title contains the color of the most evil disease. Then tell us what you named all 4 (or 5) so we may all know how hilarious and clever you are.

I figured I'd better list this here once so anyone subscribed to Pandemic gets notified. But, this should be the only entry of Pandemic itself.

We always seemed to get killed by those darn black cubes.

Anyway, our diseases are:
Black Plague,
Red Death,
Yellow Fever, and
Blue Lagoon. (I told you I'm hilarious.)

And the Purple Pox.

Black and yellow are always Black Death and Yellow Fever, since that's obvious. The other two vary. We tried Scarlet Fever, but that repeats fever; ditto the Red Death. Ebola causes profuse bleeding, but it's from Africa, not Asia. I think we did Bird Flu once. At some point, we also called blue Blue Balls, then kept going with silliness like Facebook. We then started using paired names like Communism and Capitalism, and just come up with something new whenever we play, which is infrequently.
