Spoilers for the Pandemic Legacy Season 1 Legacy Deck for the beginning of March below.

According to the legacy deck in Pandemic Legacy Season 1, in the beginning of March, you are instructed to open box 5.

I opened all the other packages that you are also instructed to open, and all of them related to

military base construction

but I cannot figure out for the life of me what the items within box 5 are for. Was this a misprint and they will become useful later, or did I miss something?

You should have opened door 5, not box 5. You can tape box 5 back up and continue with the game with no ill effects, especially as the meaning of the contents of box 5 is not apparent to you at this time.

From what I remember, when you are instructed to open a box (or package as the game refers to it), it will specifically say "Open Package #". Numbers in circles are doors to be opened, and letters in circles are rules to be opened (same mechanism as doors).

According to this thread, the contents of door 5 is

Three additional scars, so you're not missing anything vital

  • Oh damn I feel dumb. But you are right, and I should be confused by what was in package 5. And IIRC, one of the things I opened had the instruction to open the page that contained all the stuff behind the spoiler. So does this mean there's a good chance I'm missing something then? Since I didn't open door 5?
