We played our fifth game on October 19th.
Start of the Game
• Mission Brief: Complete 2 of 3 existing objectives.
• Objectives 1 (Mandatory): Discover cures to the 3 normal diseases.
• Objectives 2: Eradicate 1 disease.
• Objectives 3: Have a military base in each of the six major regions.
Used Win Bonus earned in March add a military base in Ho Chi Minh City.
Players & Characters
• Yong: Kira (Dispatcher)
• Min: Shu Nay Nay (Quarantine Specialist)
• Nam: South Virus (Researcher)
Although we lost our last game, we still decided to go with the same characters because of the advantages of character upgrades and relationships.
• 2 Research Stations: Atlanta and São Paulo
• 1 Military Base: Ho Chi Minh City (Win Bonus)
Funded Event Cards (2 cards)
• Quiet Night
• Remote Treatment
• [Cured] Nam Virus (Blue)
• [1st Epidemic] Istanbul
• [Cured] Min Virus (Black)
• [2nd Epidemic] Osaka - becomes a Faded city
• [Eradicated] Nam Virus (Blue)
• [Cured] Princess Disease (Yellow)
There weren’t any major events this game. The fact that Shu Nay Nay could look at the top 2 cards of the deck and quarantine those cities on her turn helped out immensely.
With this and some luck, we won the game with no outbreaks in neither the Faded cities nor the normal disease cities.
End of the Game
• Win Bonus: At the start of the game of May, remove 1 Faded figure from the board
This game was such an overwhelming win that it was almost to the point it was a little disappointing. Nothing really special happened this game and even after we won, we were all just like “Huh? we won?” because it just felt so simple. I guess it was also because we lost the first game of April when we were so close to winning.
Anyways, we now move on to May.
• 3 Cured: Princess Disease (Yellow), Min Virus (Black), Nam Virus (Blue)
• 0 Eradicated: Nam Virus (Blue)
• 1 COdA-403
