In March, Mash ran the game Pestilence. As this game begun, it was October, 1971. A deadly plague ravages a frontier town in the new Republic of Novosibirsk. It kills in five hours, spreads through unknown means and resembles nothing that has ever been recorded in medical literature. The town’s healers have established a safe haven for the uninfected and wait for rescue by the army. It’s useless. The true danger has already infiltrated the shelter.
