Hi all! I got Pandemic for Christmas and have been obsessed since. Everyone I introduce this game to absolutely loves it.

One thing I do in 4 player games is ask the player who draws the Epidemic card - "What did you do to cause this?". So for example:
"I was playing with Binky the lab monkey and he escaped!"
or
"I accidentally put a petri dish in the regular trash".

Some people aren't so comfortable being put on the spot to come up with something funny. So I think it might be fun to have a bunch of reasons on folded up pieces of paper, and get the player to draw one at random.

So - any suggestions for me to add to the pool of Epidemic Causes?

I failed to cook the chicken thoroughly.
I sneezed without covering my mouth.
I had the runs and came to work anyway.
I failed to sanitize properly after returning from my time travel trip to 1350.
I ignored the foot-and-mouth signs at the farm.
I had a hole in my hazmat suit.

I could do this all day long....

I'd be tempted to put them on a custom printed card deck instead of folded slips of paper.

I'd make one just a printed photo of the chimp on the "Outbreak" DVD case, with no text.

Three months ago, we played a game of Wasabi!, which was won by my friend Ryan. We then played a game of Pandemic. Ryan had the misfortune to draw the first two epidemic cards. We figured that Ryan's sushi restaurant must have failed its health inspection.
