Anybody play this board game?

Seems very fitting at this time.

By the way... I've played it. It's challenging and fun. Plays well with just two people, too. The more the merrier, though. Would make a great family night.

1. I've played it once or twice.

I actually found it a bit boring. Perhaps I was playing with the wrong people.

2. Yes

Iíve played it with four. I was surprised that it was cooperative, yet very engaging. Fun, and yes, timely.

3. It's great if you can avoid

 

the Alpha Gamer Syndrome; one guy (ALWAYS a guy) telling everyone else what they should be doing with their turn.

I play the dice version (Pandemic: The Cure) with the kids. They love it.

4. Are you saying that you let one of your kids boss you around?

LOL.

j/k

Anyway, I didn't know there's a dice version. Will check that out.

5. I've played it a couple of times.

Each time was with people more experienced with me, they were planning moves 3 and 4 moves in advance. They were also dictating what my character should do, without explaining anything. I still have no idea how to play, I was a warm body so they could use that person. From what I did catch of it, I have no interest in trying a third time.

7. Cooperative games can fall into that trap.

 

Flashpoint: Fire Rescue is a game Iíll never play again because of repeated incidents of that exact play experience. Just awful and absolutely no fun.

6. There's a gamer coffee shop in my neighborhood where I see people playing that

Well, not lately, since the coffee shop is still closed down for the global pandemic...
