Plague Inc. is a game I recently have come into contact with. The infection of this new addiction must be spread, get the game from the app store, or google play, or the PC version, soon to be on the xbox one. The goal of the game is simple enough. You create a plague (which you get to name, my first plague was stubbedtoe) you have to pick a country to start in, and from there, infect the world. Once you have the world infected you start increasing the symptoms, while strengthening your plague to fight off their work for a cure. 
 
The game is an interesting look at how plagues are spread, certain countries are better to start in for instance. Figuring out how you want your plague to be transmitted, what the symptoms are and how to build the strength of it is quite challenging. It's an addicting game as you can change the type of plague type; you start with a bacteria form, and how it’s transmitted. Right now there is a special Dawn of The Planet of The Apes download that was free on google play. It's a great game for those who have also watched Contagion one too many times, and those who frequent the 614.5 section of non-fiction. 
 
Who else plays Plague Inc. and what are your strategies?
