Poll
My group just finished March. We are three games in, with a third game win. We are undefeated, and were wondering how others fare in the game. Just check off the number corresponding to how many months you went without losing. If you played a perfect game, check 12. If you lost your first game, check 0.
How many games did you win before losing?

We aren't done yet but we finished May and we haven't lost yet. The main reasons are as follows:

1) It's just me and my wife playing one character each, which I read is easier.
2) We are playing medic and dispatcher which I think are overpowered and we don't plan on switching.
3) We have been pretty lucky not getting a lot of

coda
cubes being dealt.
4) I play a LOT of Pandemic on my phone so I know the strategy pretty well.

I really enjoy the victories but I can't help but feel we are missing out by not challenging ourselves more.

Trouble is, the Medic's abilities are no use against the Faded. By their nature, the Faded gradually occupy more and more of the board.

In our four-player game, we'd stopped using the Medic entirely by May.

It is certainly harder with the Faded figures but the majority of the game is still all about curing the other three diseases, which medic and dispatcher do quite easily. Even with the faded figures it is easy to have the madic use their 4 actions to drop 2 quarantine markers in faded cities then the dispatcher can just move them out to prevent a scar.

If you wanted an extra challenge, then you could use up an upgrade slot on a scar.

Just finished last night, 12 wins, no losses. Used medic the whole time, had coda as red, contained it very easily to red only.

I suspect that's fairly common. I think the game pushes you in that direction.
