I tried searching the forums but couldn't find the answer to a question that just came up:
Our last game ended with an infection that caused a chain reaction outbreak. The last of the outbreaks was the 8th outbreak of the game - and happened in a city with a character. Does that character still get a scar?
Page 13 of the rulebook says "When a chain reaction outbreak occurs, first move the outbreaks marker forward 1 space..." and later, "If the outbreaks marker reaches the last space of the Outbreaks track, the game ends and your team has lost!"
And in the Game End description on Page 14: "Immediately when the outbreaks marker reaches the last space of the Outbreaks track"
So technically, does the game end "immediately" before the character can be scarred?
Any help is appreciated! Our character's life is depending on it!
When the game ends, it ends immediately. I think you don't have to do the scar if the game ends.
