Ep 9. Pandemic Legacy – May in Review (GSC105)

[In this episode we debrief after our play-through of May. If you’re worried about spoilers make sure to hold off on this episode until you’ve played May in your own game (then rejoin us for this episode).

There’s plenty of additional context for this debrief, if you’re interested, which can be found in May play-through episode (http://gameshelfpod.com/gsc104-5-pandemic-legacy-may-actual-play).

This episode is part of a series of episodes running through our campaign of Pandemic Legacy, which includes between 12-24 games depending on how well we do. If we win the first 12 (unlikely) that’ll be it. If we lose a lot…it could be 24 (let’s hope not). Listen in to follow our progress and hear our trials and tribulations.
