We were sort of lucky -- we had a funded event in our initial draw. All of the initial outbreaks were black or blue diseases. Normally, having a clump of disease like that would be a disaster. But using the funded event to remove some cubes, and using the bonus from January to help, meant we could damp all of the outbreaks down while we rushed over to deal with them.
Mal opening the February Bonus. I wont say what it was, but we used it a fair bit!!!!
The starting position. Note three cities in Europe at the maximum disease level. We were so lucky we didnt get an epidemic first off and have a chain reaction of disease!!!
The final position. We almost wiped out the blue disease. We had cured black, and let it run wild while we tried to cure the Red disease -- which worked!!!
Mal for the win!!!!!
