I Am Black Death – Plague Inc

So, this Scenario took me longer to complete than I thought mainly because Greenland, New Zealand, Madagascar and a couple other fringe countries wouldn’t play nice and bow down to my whim. But, with a little perseverance I managed to get the Black Plague to spread across the globe, even into these far off nooks and crannies and bring humanity to it’s knees and then put it face down in the dirt.

Normally a bacteria level is fairly easy to complete, but Black Death has a couple of tricks. First, you need to unlock Symptoms and Transmissions evolving the Pneumonic Plague and Septemic Plague. Without these you really won’t get far and that also threw me off the first round.

Once those are unlocked you really need to work on Transmission and in my opinion Water. This bacteria spreads fast so airports shut down early on, but boat ports remain open. I doubled up on the Water Transmission and threw in Fleas, Rodents and Birds for good measure.

With the plague spreading it was time to get that Cure Rate under control. That was ticking up like a watch so I threw in several of the Drug Resistance and some Genetic Shuffle. I still think Genetic Shuffle should be a dance – will have to watch YouTube for that.

The points rack up fast and there is the temptation to go all-in and use them, but it seems better to hold out for a bit and make sure things spread evenly. If the symptoms are too bad you can’t keep up with the cure rate and everyone shuts you out.

I hit the right rhythm and made it to all the ports in time. There is still a great deal of satisfaction to be had when Greenland gets infected and that big red bubble pops up over them. It’s like a banner of victory.

The Black Death Scenario isn’t all that hard, it’s almost more a game of keeping the plague from getting out of control too fast. I went crazy go nuts with the massive amount of points I collected in the first couple of games and I got shut out of all the hot spots right from the start. I think I had 200 points waiting to be used, but humanity wasn’t ready for me yet.

Always good fun to get in some time with Plague Inc before heading off to work where everyone in the office is coughing and hacking and sneezing and blowing and dripping. It makes you wonder what matter of disease and contagion you’re really exposed to.

That’s right, not a single healthy person left standing. They might still be standing, but not for much longer!

Ok, fine, it’s not the best score in the world, but at least I got it done. My career as a mad scientist is limited, I know.
