Pandemic Expansion: In the Lab
Pandemic Expansion: In the Lab

In Pandemic: In the Lab, the second expansion for Pandemic, you will use a new game board that allows you to move the pawns in a laboratory. The goal of this activity is the same as in the base game – finding cures for diseases – but this time in a new way. Behind sealed bio-hazard doors, scientists race against time to sequence diseases, take samples, and test cures. Pandemic: In the Lab includes four new roles, new Virulent Strain events, and a Worldwide Panic Mutation scenario. Players can compete individually or on rival teams (when playing with four or six players). Can your team work together in the lab to save humanity?

Edith Cavell
Edith Cavell

Edith Cavell was born in 1865, daughter of a Norfolk vicar, and shot in Brussels on 12 October 1915 by the Germans for sheltering British and French soldiers and helping them escape over the Belgian border.

Following a traditional village childhood in 19th century England, Edith worked as a governess in the UK and abroad, before training as a nurse in London in 1895. To Edith, nursing was a duty, a vocation, but above all a service. By 1907, she had travelled most of Europe and become matron of her own hospital in Belgium, where, under her leadership, a ramshackle hospital with few staff and little organization became a model nursing school.

When war broke out, Edith helped soldiers to escape the war by giving them jobs in her hospital, finding clothing and organizing safe passage into Holland. In all, she assisted over two hundred men. When her secret work was discovered, Edith was put on trial and sentenced to death by firing squad. She uttered only 130 words in her defence. A devout Christian, the evening before her death, she asked to be remembered as a nurse, not a hero or a martyr, and prayed to be fit for heaven. When news of Edith’s death reached Britain, army recruitment doubled.

Diana Souhami brings one of the Great War’s finest heroes to life in this biography of a hardworking, courageous and independent woman.

A Nurse at the Front: The First World War Diaries of Sister Edith Appleton
A Nurse at the Front: The First World War Diaries of Sister Edith Appleton

Edited by Ruth Cown and foreword by Michael Morpurgo.

Edith Appleton, known as Edie, was working as a professional nurse when war broke out in 1914. She immediately joined the military nursing services and spent the next four years treating dying and injured allied soldiers in France and Belgium, as they fought an entirely new type of war: one of horrendous living conditions, gas attacks and shell-shocked survivors.

A Nurse at the Front contains the fascinating diaries Edie kept of her experiences. Surrounded by death, she never lost her appreciation of life. Against the background of Ypres and the Somme, Edie writes unflinchingly, with clarity and even wit. We see the Great War through a new set of eyes in an acutely observed, courageous account of life on the front line of treacherous warfare.
