Re: Board games anyone?

I picked up Flash Point a couple months ago. Played it once shortly after that and the game kicked our ass. We chalked it up to being the first time and learning the game. Broke it out again the other night (with 2 players) and realized I'd done some of the setup wrong. I didn't think it was enough ...

Would Pandemic Legacy be good with two people, or should I get a larger group together to try it? I played through all of it with just two people (myself and my SO) and we had a blast playing it. We usually just played 2 characters apiece so we have more things going on and more abilities to play w...

I saw someone say the Portuguese translation used the singular form of last. But I don't know if that was an official translation or someone making an assumption.

Don't know why I didn't think of this sooner, but Mice & Mystics is a good option. Co-op with a campaign mode. One of my favorite co-op games. I've played through the original game and am almost done with the first mini-expansion. There's at least one more full expansion maybe more.
