    Kolkata was removed from the game, yes?

    1. Direct flight to Delhi, treating it instantly.
    2. Move to Karachi, treating it instantly.
    3. Move to Mumbai, treating it instantly.
    4. Move to Chennai.

    Better for you to treat the Blacks than me, I guess. After Inquisitor cures Yellow, we only need to finish the Reds and we're done!

    Okay guys. We have to cure orange. FAST. We have my one round of turns left and then one more from me and then the game is over. Problem is everyone is at least three away from curing orange.

    1. Cure yellow! Fuck yeah!
    2. Fly to Shanghai
    3. Cure Shangi
    4. Move to Seoul


    Here's to hoping I draw an orange.

    Yellow cure's found! One more to go.

    Draw:
    Washington
    And the final Epidemic.
    Buenos Aires gets the yellow bullet.

    Infector:
    Seoul gets a orange cube.
    San Francisco gets a blue cube.
    Sydney gets a orange cube...

    ...whoa whoa whoa, is that a Outbreak? It is! Was wondering when we were going to see one.
    LA, Manila, and Jakarta all get a Orange cube.

    This is bad.

    I think we lose?

    We DO have the cards to cure orange, we just have them all in the wrong hands.

    I'm holding two, each of you has one, except Akinos who has two.

    There are, I believe, a lot of orange cards left, too. As well as yellows, naturally.

    So, I think damage control is our best bet. We need to get over there, start curing us some cubes, and fixing this shit quick.

    Let's get to it.

    Well, the problem is we only have 3 turns left.

    The loss-by-running-out-of-cards is my least favorite part of this game (as excellent as the game is).

    Even if we get lucky draws, they happen at the end of our turns, and we won't get another one.

    So unless we figure out some crazy trading scheme, I think this might be it.

    Okay, let's look at the facts - spoiler'd here are the current (I hope...) hands and map state, as of the beginning of my turn...

    Having stepped back and gathered a clearer view of the situation, I believe the main course of action should go thusly...

    I must've misread earlier, I thought Akinos had less then that.

    Yes, do that trade. Win us ze game.

    Slight flaw in that plan:

    Yellow isn't what you have to cure. (It's cured already.) Orange is. Granted, you three do have five orange cards between the three of you, the trick will be getting them all on one person.

    If this works, I will declare you the unanimous winner of Pandemic and BSG.

    Not really, but it'd be pretty damn impressive.

    That's why I put the current hands and map together like I did - it's way easier to figure stuff out when you're not flipping between the first and last pages. If anyone else wants to look into it, be my guest - I'd hate to discover I've ruined this wonderful turnabout while it's in progress...

    Turnabout... oh Gods, now I want some Ace Attorney sprites shopped to look like Gaius Baltar.

    Assuming that neither Ianator nor myself draw any super awesomeness cards, nor that the world ends before we can stop it, my actions:


    Action Point 1: Move to Buenos Aires
    Actoin Point 2: Shuttle to Shanghai
    Action Point 3: Move to Seoul
    Action Point 4: Share Information with Inquisitor about Seoul.


    You got Seoul, man! Save the world! FOR A BRIGHTER FUTUUUUUUUURE!

    Let's see if you can pull this off.

    Moves look okay...

    Draw:
    Sydney
    London

    Infector:

    ... *spit-take* D:

    Bangkok gets a orange cube, triggering a Outbreak.
    Kolkata, Hong Kong, Ho Chi Minh City, Jakarta, and Chennai get a orange cube.
    Buenos Aires gets a yellow cube, triggering a Outbreak.
    Sao Paulo and Bogota get a yellow cube.
    New York gets a blue cube, triggering a Outbreak.
    London, Madrid, Washington, and Toronto get a blue cube.

    The board knows... and is plotting revenge, apparently.

    I am buying this game so fast when it finally gets another re-print.

    This was awesome, thanks for running it for us PMAvers.

    I can only imagine how intense this game gets on the harder difficulties. Of course, we'd also have a better idea of what we were doing on another play through but still, wow, tons of fun dude.

    FLAWLESS VICTORY

    I don't think I've ever had so much fun playing a board game since... well, ever, really. Things really got crazy when it was revealed that we couldn't just go around treating cities until we found the cures.

    Anyways, thanks for the great game, guys, and you're welcome for the epic turnaround.
