You might've noticed if you checked the news recently that we got this pandemic thing going on. Well, we know that there are games that simulate the spread of a disease while doctors try and save everyone. That's what Clinic is. Well, there's a new deluxe edition of Clinic up on Kickstarter and some of the proceeds from the campaign will go to helping stop the actual pandemic we're living through.
From the campaign:
This a very special campaign for me.
I was married to a nurse and Clinic, the board game, has been massively inspired by the discussions I had with my wife when she comes home from work.
When I released Clinic Deluxe Edition in 2019, I never thought, or WE never thought, that a giant pandemic would hit the planet.
And I am now feeling strange about having my game on the table, all around the world, with gamers thematically trying to fight against different diseases based on abstract colors of white, yellow, orange and red. I feel as if I should do more, but what can I do to help the world's medical staff who are suffering in this war against a virus of which we know very little...
That's why I have designed a new cooperative variant called - COVID-19 Pandemic - in order to help the world in finding a vaccine in a near future.
The game's around 20x funded with 38 days left to go.
