    If I am interested in Pandemic Legacy but unsure if my group would be, should I just get regular Pandemic?

    I dunno how easy it would be to “undo” a first game and try it with a different group if my main one doesn’t care for it

    You can play any number of non legacy games with Pandemic Legacy before launching the campaign.

    If you are new to the series the game even recommends you do just that.

    Oh wow i did not know you can just play base Pandemic with a copy of Legacy, I thought it was only good for a legacy game

    Is there any difference between the color boxes? I keep seeing listing for (Red) and (Blue) and (Yellow)

    There are slight rule differences, but they generally are for the better. If you've only played Legacy you won't notice them.


    Red and Blue are Season 1, Yellow and Black are season 2 (which is $20 more expensive).

    The seasons are 100% the same, the different boxes are just in case you want to run multiple games and track them or something.

    Sure there is. The fact that if first player goes corner you must respond with middle or you lose is a meta. And if you don't know the meta you lose.

    I'm not sure I agree with "metagame" being another word for "strategy." Not because I think it's objectively wrong but because I think being aware of a strategy for a game is very different from being aware of the metagame.

    Either way knowing that you must respond in the middle is tactics, not strategy or metagame.

    If you look up the tarot major arcana numbers it's v clear they all match.

    Yeah, it's obvious now that I see it's definitely a Tarot thing courtesy of this last one, but until that image, it was:

    "I dunno, this is basically a game about wizards maybe? Does the fact that they use a lot of green imply something?"

    I do hope it's something a little larger than a single one-off game. FFG is due for a new IP even if they've been handling the ones they've got well.

    Got to play some more games of Codex last night with a friend. This is my 4th game against him and he finally won a game! Which is great because it means he's now way more excited to play more Codex! :biggrin: Man I wish there was an online implementation of that game; I would do almost nothing else... Having recently got back into Magic with MtG Arena, I just love that they managed to make distinct factions that all do drastically different things, but also completely get rid of different types of mana, flood/screw situations, and no-play openers. Even with MtG Arena rolling you two starting hands and giving you the one with the most even land/spell distribution, you still get some real trash opening hands.

    There is a similarity in composition and in the juxtaposition of real and fictional elements, sure. I don't think that remotely qualifies as a "ripoff."

    There was a controversy surrounding Scythe art that seemed to have some merit, though I think it has been satisfactorily addressed by now. Details here:

    It's Tarot themed.. but none of the above artwork is featured, so I'm not sure if connected.

    The art isn't even in the same style? I dunno, I would think they would post the last tarot card with a link to whatever they're teasing. There's no direct connection between the two other than the tarot theme...
    Maybe just wishful thinking on my part.

    Honestly, at this point I think they screwed up either way, because the overlap between whatever it is and the Arkham expansion is already there and will probably shut off tons of people who were otherwise paying attention. And again, that's only assuming that it isn't the Arkham expansion (which I agree, doesn't really seem like where this is going).
