... with one very obvious reason for this being that 4 or 5 of a single color are far less likely to be dealt to a single player over the course of the game, making the share knowledge sequences (which are costly in terms of action usage) much more necessary.

This seems to counteract any advantage of having a variety of specialties. There is still the same rate of infection and epidemic exposure, obviously.

One variant I've thought about (but not yet played) is allowing any of the special player cards to alternatively be used as a "wild" card only for the purpose of finding a cure.

Thoughts?

It does get harder with 4 players but not unbeatable. I don't like to play 4 epidemics with 4 players because we still win to often. I like the game to be difficult, that makes the wins that much sweeter.
