Ep 8. Pandemic Legacy – April in Review (GSC104)

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

In addition to the game debrief, listen in for talk around mini-mini-figure painting, time management, appropriate usage of pronouns, and briefly hear the girl from ipanema.

There’s plenty of additional context for this debrief, if you’re interested, which can be found in our April play-through episode.

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.

Ep 1. Pandemic Legacy – The looming storm (GSC100)

We (Matt, Jess, Jenn, and Chas) are about to start our play through of Pandemic: Legacy, the cooperative board game where we save a world on the brink of biological disaster. But in this game, each time we play, the board is permanently changed, new rules are added to the rulebook, cards are ripped up, and additional components are revealed. No two copies of the game will ever play out the same way. This is our story of trying to save the world.

In this episode we start with some introductions then we look ahead to discuss what we think may be coming for us. There is a nervous excitement, and I’m pretty sure we all just want to play the game.

This 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 12 a lot…it could be 24 (let’s hope not). Listen in and follow our progress and hear our trials and tribulations.
