I have owned Pandemic Legacy for a while now. I even went so far as to remove the shrink-wrap last year, thinking that we might start playing. Spoiler alert: We didn’t.
Yesterday, we finally pulled it out and actually played it. I thought I had read all of the Legacy tweaks, but I missed an important one. At the end of our first game (we won!) I read the top card of the legacy deck, where it said to place the reminder token on the third spot on the Infection Track. Oops. I quickly looked at the back of the card and realized there was no way to retrofit the requirements into our game, so we simply reset and started over. This time we did it correctly.
I won’t say what happened in case there are others reading this that – like me – want an unspoiled experience. Let’s just say that while we still won the game (and extremely fast, I might add) the new challenge is going to make life interesting as we move forward.
