Pg. 7 reads: When a chain reaction outbreak occurs, first move the outbreaks marker forward 1 space. Then place cubes as above, except do not add a cube to cities that already had an outbreak (or chain reaction outbreak) as part of resolving the current infection card.

Example: Three cubes each on Tehran and Baghdad. On the Infect Cities phase, I draw (ugh!) Tehran and Baghdad. This means that the Tehran card triggers a Baghdad outbreak, and after that card is resolved, the Baghdad card triggers an outbreak in Tehran for a jump on the outbreak track for a whopping 4 spaces.

Anyone dispute this?

Seems right to me, and those surrounding areas must be pretty sick looking as well.

That's correct. What the rulebook is saying is that when you draw the Tehran card, it outbreaks, which causes Baghdad to outbreak. But when Baghdad outbreaks it doesn't go back to Tehran and cause an infinite loop.

Now if you have the supremely bad luck to draw the Baghdad card right after that...

Ran outta cubes. Note the Quarantine Specialist in there doing the best she can.

You've played it correctly. Note that Karachi will also have an outbreak in this scenario, because it will get 4 cubes caused by the other outbreaks.

...For a minimum of 5 outbreaks and 16 cubes placed.

Wow. That would be a tough one to survive, especially since counting the 6 black cubes you started with in Baghdad and Tehran, there would be 22 black cubes on the board.

It seems in the iOS game they have the rules wrong on outbreaks adding cubes to a city that already had an outbreak. Can someone can confirm this is wrong. There are almost zero posts in the iOS forum.

I don't have the iOS game, so how is it handled there?
