In Risk Legacy you really wanted to have the same players show up ever session. Is it like that in Pandemic Legacy? Would one week doing 3 and the next 4 be that big of a deal?

Your fourth player will likely hate you for having him miss the Cool Thing Of The Month he missed. Apart from that it's mostly fine.

Yeah, that big of a deal. You want the same people there each time.

I think there are some months when not that much happens, Right now I'm up to end of June, I have yet to begin July, but I would say the first 4 months are super critical to the game. I would say May & June are months when things slow down.

It is only an issue from a player perspective. If you have dedicated players they will likely want to be involved at every step.

I've played three games with my Thursday group. First was with three. Second was with four. Third was with three. It worked fine. Two of us paid jointly for the game and we will play every one. Any players we let in or out of the game come just for the one game.

Not true, we have a player that has skipped a couple games and doesn't seem to mind. A player who skips a session feel a little bummed if they miss something cool happening but if they don't care then there's no problem going from four to three players and back.

Sure mechanically it works but you can't leave players behind. They'll get mad.
