This Game Is Lega-wait for it-cy!
GenCon 2016 I bought a copy of Pandemic Legacy: Season 1. It's been a game I been hearing about for almost a year at that point and everyone was going bonkers over it. At first I didn't think I would try it out because playing the game involves playing it between 12 and 24 times, and you sort of need the same group of people. I didn't think it would be possible to do that. But the hype train pulled up to my station and I decided to step on and take the crazy ride.
Our ride didn't begin until January 2017. I invited my friends Wavy and Kelly over to my place and along with my fiancee Felicia, we took a stab at it.
Now, Pandemic Legacy is a game riddled with spoilers. For those of you not in the know, while you play the game, you reveal cards that tell a story and sometimes you have to open boxes that further the story along. If you never played before and you plan on it, I'm gonna spoil the fuck out of it so you might wanna stop and come back later. OR you could watch the CineGamer episode I did on regular Pandemic. I was nominated for an award for that episode!*
Anyway, spoilers start now!
We started the game in January like I said and just the other day, we finished the whole thing! I was so excited that I forgot to take pictures at the time but I took some pictures a day later and I'm gonna share those with you now, explaining what the pictures mean.
Overall, we really enjoyed the experience and didn't know where the story was going to go. We didn't know if we should trust the solider or not. The fact we had to go against what we knew as the core rules was both scary and exciting. This just made me super excited for Season 2, which is due sometime later this year. The only downside is we can't play it again but I will always have the memories of playing this with my friends forever.
*I wasn't nominated for anything, I'm just trying to get people to watch the episode.
