Isn't having Pandemic: Legacy in that list kind of a colossal spoiler too?

How are Pandemic Legacy and Codenames sci-fi or fantasy??

I'm sorry but I would have never put either of those in those genres....

Obviously, in regards to Pandemic, DragonCon is run by anti-vaxxers.

I'm surprised no one has said anything about Monopoly: CTHULHU being in the running with Blood Rage and Star Wars: Rebellion. Granted I have never played it...

But yes I agree that it's very weird for Codenames to be here. Slightly less for Pandemic Legacy but I guess you could argue that one.
