a truly excellent strategy game that follows its theme quite well. far more depth and strategy than may first appear, but quite clever ... oh to have an updated version with real components!!

This is a great game! I love playing with 3 or more people, because it gets really nasty!
Inexpensive game and loads of fun.

I find the subject a lot of fun...we have substituted average dice for some of the die rolls to prevent real blow out results. Otherwise, we enjoy it whenever we play it.

Good game for a few turns. Then it gets repetitive. The mechanisms are ok but dont allow for deep strategy. Best balance between virulence and lethality depends on the number of players

This game is fun with some challenge. The concept is wacky and the game plays nicely. The presentation is minimal.

Gruesome fun! The only problem is that the range of values you can choose from when designing your disease doesn't actually allow for much variety.

Awesome theme. I liked moving other people around, but unfortunately I think the most fun part for my friends was naming their diseases.

See my review and session report for more about Black Death. I recently played it with four players for the first time, and it isn't as good as with two. It's just too long for the amount of fun you get. Still, it's a respectable game, and even better with two players.

1 play in a 2P setting - maybe played correctly, maybe not. Seemed like it needed at least 4 to make it worthwhile.

okay...it is somehow boring... the most fun out of this is the fact, that you create your own disease, so some creativity can bring a lot of laughs in the beginning, but the game...

A 3-3 variation should win though perhaps a 2-4 or 4-2 might get lucky, But it's a lot of dice-rolling for what it is though.

A dicefest. When you run out of good things to do with your infection and movement points, you can use them to mess with other players, holding them back. The event cards don't do much.

I really wanted to like this game. The historical topic fascinates me and my humor is sick enough that the concept is appealing. However, there's just not enough there. I feel like the game is playing me.

Love the theme, but the gameplay is lacking. Lots of chits to move, and the decisionmaking is fairly trivial.

A game that, while evocotive of the theme, is just not that intriguing. I like making up the disease, but that seems like the only real decision that is made in the game. The mechanics are almost too perfectly balanced. I just couldn't enjoy playing the game when the dice dictated so many of my choices.

A miserable subject turned into a miserable game. Weird rules, luck-laden and no one cared about the result except to see what the game system happened to do. Will be avoiding in future.

Lots of nasty fun! An excellent simulation from the perspective of a disease- really helps to see the effects of virulence vs. mortality. I now know why high mortality actually hurts the progress of a disease. Gotta love permenantly wiping out the ghetos of Cairo. Too bad that the components are so primitive.
