I just played at lunchtime with my colleagues and wanted some thoughts on how to play the Nauseous Gas and Unlucky outbreak cards.
Firstly note that neither are marked as Keepers.
Make a loud fart name during the game and players must hold their noses. Blindly pick 2 symptoms from the last player to hold their nose and keep or discard any.
How would you go about playing this card? We decided that the person who took the card should read it aloud so that everyone understood what they were supposed to do and then at some later point of their own choosing make the fart noise. Does this sound reasonable?
Our thinking was that it wouldn't work at all if everyone hadn't been told to hold their noses at the signal, but it also wouldn't work very well if played immediately because everyone has just had it explained and so would remember straight away what to do.
You can now use the top card in the open afflicters deck to contract a disease. This afflicter is separate to your own collection and doesn't affect your afflicter card limit.
Does the player keep this card for the rest of the game, allowing them to take the open afflicter every time they contract a disease from now on? It doesn't specify to discard it after use so it seems so, but that does make it quite powerful!
Appreciate any thoughts.
