I know how to save the world. First, this information came from a friend whom is an artist and after a trance brought on by "illicit means," he informed me to seek out two brothers, one whom is running for political office and the other a nurse. While the former brother was non-compliant to helping as he didn't believe the artist's visions, the other brother and a scientist helped point me in the direction of a young, Japanese man who with his friend see the future through a comic book series. This book gave way to a few warnings about a man with horned-rim glasses and an antagonist with a deadly, surgical mind. With the help of a young mother and her son joining us, we encounter a scion which give relavence to a phrase that had been eluding us..."Save the Cheerleader, save the world." This girls lifeblood must be the key! We must make gallons of antidotes through her antibodies to cure the disease!

Another vision was discovered later however of a man with a chainsaw and a shotgun. His only words to us were "Hail to the King, baby!" Where he leads, we must follow...

We must keep alert and make sure we have the resources to fight the battle. I'll take myself and all that are willing to follow. We will guard the borders of our city with any weapons we can find while others...much smarter than myself test potential antedotes on a few of the creatures we can capture. Hopefully it can be found before we are overrun. We must be brave if we want to survive.

I would save the world by taking over and fortifying a section of the local university. Researchers and medical staff can safely work on a cure, while the rest of us can maintain security and work on growing food. I would take select members of my team and their families. We would accept more as we got our base off the ground. Holding the high ground is critical! We must think long term, as nothing ever comes easy.

It is time to rise back up and take back our world. My wife and I remember the time before the sickness, before civilization as we once knew it came crumbling down. Now we, along with our closest friends and fellow survivors, will venture out into lands forgotten to bring aid to those in need and to search for others that might be able to find the cure. We have survived this long, and we may lose some of our companions along the way, but we will push on. We will survive and perhaps save the world this time.

EDIT: 2-2-2-3

Located in Columbus, OH. We'll need to organize and work with specialists to have a chance. Doctors to treat our injuries, scientists to study the problem, and security to keep us (and our supplies safe). Our only chance to survive is by working together and keeping our group safe, at all costs.

Save humanity?

I say we dust off and nuke the entire site from orbit. It is the only way to be sure.

We had a good run. Time to let another species have a go. We have engineered our own demise. We likely deserve it.

Game over, man. Game over.

To save the world I would go to [CLASSIFIED], it is well fortified and the single enterence can be easily controlled. In addition the local communities of [REDACTED], [REDACTED], and [REDACTED] will have the supplies necessary to maintain a viable community. Once the location has been setup the initial members of the founding community will begin bringing in additional survivors. The suvivor will be introduced into the community slowly for their safety and ours. We will proved the necessary medical evaluations to ensure their successful introduction. Over time, as our community grows, we will be able to expand and create outposts and satellite communities. With each successful expansion we will make out communities stronger and bring aid to more of those that need it.

While I obviously can't provide all the details in this format and I've had to hold key information back, I believe starting small and expanding out is the best option we have in this situation.

Just pull the goddamn plug, we're doomed anyway. There are too much boardgames and too less time to play them all. Why should it matter, if we live or die?

*Incoming transmission*

I've nearly found the cure for the E-blue-la virus, can anyone meet me in Madrid to give me the final piece of information I need to find the cure? This is of the utmost urgency, there's about to another breakout in London, and... Oh no...

*Transmission ended*

We must use natural barriers to keep the infected away and begin quarantine from there. I hear the sick aren't good at skiing. Big Bear, CA is the home base.

Where do I think is safe? My house, of course, We'll use my copies of Ogre to blockade the doors. We have plenty of food in the house and can easily grow more through things like Agricola, At the Gates of Loyang, and other farming games.

We can use games to determine who has been turned into a z... well, whatever they've turned into. If they can figure out how Science works in 7 Wonders, we know they're safe. Of course, there may be changes that increase intelligence too far, which would still be dangerous. If they can understand a Fantasy Flight rulebook in one pass, we know they're a risk as well.

Defending ourselves will be easy. We'll have arguments over which is better: Race for the Galaxy or San Juan. The fury that will come from that will drive off everything. If that isn't enough, I'll reach for the big guns and suggest that Mage Knight is a deck builder. The resulting anger should scare away anything.

Getting supplies shouldn't be too difficult, really. Power Grid has taught me that connecting to the next town isn't terribly expensive, and we'll gain money even if we aren't powering any cities. We'll all get cozy with the sheep in the Cuddle Room in Caverna, which should also keep us warm.

We outlasted the wait for 7 Wonders to come to digital. We've been fortifying our patience with delayed Kickstarter after delayed Kickstarter. We've been playing games with people with Analysis Paralysis for years. We can survive.

Let's admit it, we've all been training for this. Now as long as Dave doesn't set up the... Wait, who let Dave set up? Oh we're doomed now.

There's really one proper way to save the planet in times like these. We'd need to quarantine the areas affected to limit the spread. We'd also need to make sure we're stocked and ready with any and all forms of medicine and triage gear we can muster. Food will be a large priority so we'll need to make sure we have a large supply of safe to eat food with a clean water source.

Times like these call for desperate measures and we have to understand the importance that these events can have on humanity as a whole. We'll need to work together if we have any hope at stopping it.

My wife, two dogs, and I would head to our summer camp. It's remote, well stocked, and off the grid. Limited numbers of people know where it is or how to get in. We will be fine.

There are many tiny islands in the Puget Sound area of Washington State accessible only by ferry. Find a way onto one of the more remote islands that has food, farms & a small town, destroy the dock, fortify & cultivate a sustainable lifestyle. Work on constructing fences around the beaches, just in case.

I read an interesting book a few years ago called: Alien Invasion - How to Defend Earth.

https://www.amazon.com/Alien-Invasion-How-Defend-Earth/dp/14...

The book does talk about the potential for alien life in mathematical terms and the likelihood that their is intelligent life, etc, but despite its title, the book is as much about preparedness and a discussion of how well-equipped we are to handle any type of global catastrophe as it is a book about aliens. The short answer: we're screwed. The author uses recent local/regional disasters as examples and discusses how inadequately we reacted to those situations. It's a very interesting read; highly recommended.

To save the world I will use my QA abilities to verify effective treatment of patients, mechanics and practices among the group. I have tons of experience dealing with similar problems before as I lead a custom campaign through infected areas tieing many seemingly unrelated objectives into one continuous narrative, finding the hidden meaning behind it all. Soon we will take a new campaign onto the city of Raxxon head quarters, taking with us knowledge from our first expedition. Hopefully we will learn to build, fight and keep safe all who travel with us.

Raxxon will see us through with their deep knowledge of technology and medicines. I look forward to putting my skills and my groups skills to the test!

--Matt
