Hawera South Taranaki
So i just finished my first play with 4 players, and i have vanilla and Cthulu, and it was a breeze for a while, building a great rail network and getting people to travel around without wasting cards...
Then we hit a bit of a spot where the game got pretty vicious(we were only playing with 4 epidemics..so on easy mode) and we started to really struggle to share cards
We ended up researching all 4 virus on the last go of the game, but were alarmed at how fast it become difficult the longer the game went on, it's almost like they have balanced the game so that as soon as you start getting rid of cards you 'think' you don't need, it hits the fan
Very good first game though, and enough variation from the others to make it a purchase, one of my sons who loves vanilla but hates Cthulu theme, thought it was probably the best version
All i can say is, make sure you set up a good rail network and purify the water when things start to go downhill
Giant thumbs up!!
Thanks - I have just ordered a copy will remember that when I get it
