Oh shit. We almost never build new supply centers because we're so focused on keeping places supplied and rarely get the cards together to build a new supply center. I don't know how we missed that being mandatory.

Going to a local board game night here tonight. Very excited. And my husband wants to join, how unusual!

@pseudoidiot Yeah, having to get all three supply centers down makes the game *dramatically* harder (but will help you out a ton in the later game, which I suspect is why it's there - you really want to have some cities regularly growing, and getting the [special thing you can do for supply-center cities]).

We basically end up running the "use one less card to make a supply center" person every single game (with some upgrades that make that easier, of course).

Found a fun group of people that play board games each week at a village inn. Having a blast. Hoping to start pandemic legacy s2 soon!

Yeah, we've got a team of 4 characters (with synergistic upgrades) that we've stuck with from February through September, though we have increasingly been looking at the other available characters and may even take one or more of them in October... maybe November. December? The sticky question is which character to bench...

Ended up playing a game of Lords of Waterdeep with five players. Pretty fun, I will go again.
