I know that i have came late to the game , since this is my first time playing pandemic with on the brink expansion , i have tried the first challenge " virulent strain" , i do get the special effect for epidemic cards ecxept for " chronic effect " , i do get the first part but what i need help with is the second part " this does not affect epicdemics or outbreaks" ,what does that mean ,what does this part got to do with the first part of the card ?
Maybe think about it this way -
There are three ways that infection cubes can be placed on the board,
1. At the end of your turn when you draw from the top of the Infection deck,
2. During the second step of resolving an Epidemic, when you draw from the bottom of the Infection deck,
3. When there is an Outbreak.
What that sentence is telling you is that Chronic Effect only happens with number 1, but not with numbers 2 and 3.
I hope that makes sense for you.
