Monday four bruised and battered adventurers once more tackled the month of October after managing to somehow get themselves back up off the ground from their last kicking by the game.
Joe the soldier had been dumped from the team, his inability to find a cure was not helpful. So parachuted in to take his place was Typhoid Mary the immunologist.
The easy objective of destroying two military bases was easily achieved, one of them was also a starting military base.
Between Mat and myself we had found two cures. The third was on its way. We had even built a vaccine building and had started making vaccine and using it to get rid of the faded.
Our third and final cure was in sight. In fact we were a couple of moves away from getting a much needed win.
That's when the game decided it had had enough playing with us, and it was time to put its meal out of its misery.
Once more an epidemic outbreak broke into pandemics, and like a broken record we ran out of faded and lost the game.
Our fourth loss in a row.
Mat was given the honour of opening the box he had been eying up since the beginning. Inside that mysterious box so many have seen but few have opened, were some cards! Cards that get shuffled into the players deck that will hopefully make our next game easier!
We decide to call it a day after yet another tick in the loser column, and attempt November next time.
But wow we are potentially now two games away from the end of the game, but with the way we have been playing more likely four.
