Re: SPOILERS in an Advertisement?
To be on the safe side and avoid perpetuating the fail, it might be worth emphasising that this thread contains the spoiler, rather than just discussing the spoiler!

But... mmm. Yeah. /-8

Ironically this wasn't spoiled for many of us at CSI yet until we saw these threads. Doug mentioned his reasoning in another thread.

This is my fault. I picked the board game items for this sale and, not having played Pandemic: Legacy, I was unaware that it would be a spoiler. My thought was that a zombie outbreak could be a Pandemic so it could work with the theme of the sale.

I honestly feel it wouldn't be much of an issue if it wasn't for the topics about it.
With most "themed" sales about games, books, movies or whatever I've seen so far, there are always a few ones in there that don't really fit the theme but get thrown in there because they are maybe popular right now and make a good sales pitch.
And Pandemic sure is one that is a bit of a stretch, but I've seen tons of people that already pimped up there normal version to fit that theme, so it's not that far away from being thrown in there just because it is close enough and is a big seller already.

Good call and thank you for changing it. I just feel sorry for all those that saw it on reddit/r/boardgames today.

Yeah I sent them a message about this a few days ago, but never heard back.

I saw this sale literally a few days after my group played April/May. If my group had been just 1 week behind, or the sale 1 week earlier, this would have spoiled that fun surprise for me!
