Description Edit | History

In this cheerfully demented offering, participants each play the part of a disease trying to inflict misery on the European populace. Each disease has mortality (lethalness) and virulence (contagiousness) factors, and the key to causing maximum suffering is striking the right balance between the two. It's no good being a fast-acting disease if your carriers all die before passing you on to the next city!

From the designer:

Some of you have my old board game Black Death. Well, in a few weeks I hope to release the downloadable version. This is going to be an "assemble it yourself" project that will give you an end product that looks like any other store-bought board game (but without the box).

See Web Links for download.

Putting it together will be a little work, but even taking that into account, you will only be paying half of what you would for a normal boxed game (the pdf will be about $8, and you'll spend a few more $ in time and materials). I've made a couple prototypes to test the pdfs out and it's -gorgeous-. It's German-game quality. I'll try to take an "assembled product photo" in a few days and add it to the demo file.

I expect the game will be released in a few weeks. For those who want to minimize their assembly time, I can run off the components on a color laser printer and snail mail them to people for final assembly (glossy maps, pre-perfed game cards, self-adhesive sheets for counters, etc.). The cost of this is up in the air, but will only be my materials, time and postage cost (once I figure that out).

When I get a product page up on RPGnow for "wish list" purposes, I'll let you know.
