Amazing game will go in favs, but the island countries are just too hard to infect once airports are closed, i got pretty much max in infectivity, every transmission, and almost max lethality, but once the island countries closed up, say goodbye to any possibility of winning. For any new players, if you get a country with only one or the other transit options, or none at all, restart immediately. Try to find a country with water plants too, because that sets off the spread real nicely, make water transmission your first priority, so it spreads faster. Another tip, try not getting any lethality, only infectivity until all countries that are able are infected, why? you ask. Countries close borders slower when no one is dying of course! Indonesia is a perfered starting point, it has water, and both transport options, it is also one of those tricky island countries to infect, so automatically thts one down.
i started in madagascar but i couldnt get out of it!!!
still fun though
after playing through 3 times and each time over 100 days had passed, in total only 1 boat ever went to madagascar. besides that i got the rest of the world. make it possable to get madagascar and the game will be perfect.
Fun and all...
But how does the world magically know the counter something the SECOND I click a new "borne" type? I make something water borne, BAM! Instantly everyone's handing out bottled water. Or shooting the rats... You get the point.
if 10 people are infected in the US they shut down their seaport. i can't get them infected for the life of me. besides that impossibility, good game.
one idea for future improvements might be for countries to remove their restrictions if the virus becomes less noticable. now it's basically like, if they shut down before you get there, game over.
