Mike: I’m pretty sure we swiped this up in one of our famous brick and mortar binges at Modern Myths in Mamaroneck, NY. These take place quasi annually when there’s down time between weekend morning game paying and evening BBQing. As must be evident, we are pretty obsessively focused on gaming with our free time when we are together! (We DO make time for eating and drinking tho! Trying to play a game with Susan when she’s hungry is like playing pattycake with a caged lioness!)

Mike: My favorite part of this game is the strategy involved with being the 2nd or 3rd virus to infect a city. Doing so puts pressure on your opponent in ways that can be advantageous to your game. If your virus is the one that “closes out” a city, you get an added advantage with is denoted on the card. Strategically closing out cities even though you may not be the player that get’s the most points for it, can really improve your lot with regard to the infections you have spread on other cities. It’s clever way to level the playing field against an aggressive opponent!
