Does Forecast not include visibility to upcoming Epidemics?

Post by Halfwitwanderer »

So, while playing with a friend, I noticed that when playing Forecast, I was able to rearrange the next 6 upcoming cards of the Infection deck, but the game did not mention any Epidemics coming up. I arranged cards in this order:

1 - Khartoum
2 - Essen
3 - Algiers
4 - Mumbai
5 - Tehran
6 - Beijing

But on the turn after Khartoum and Essen is infected, an Epidemic comes up, as can be seen in the game logs.

Is this a bug? Or correct functionality? I'd think in the physical board game, the 6 Infection cards would include any upcoming Epidemic cards, no?

The Forecast shows you the next 6 cards of the infection deck, whereas the epidemic cards are part of the player deck. So this is no bug.
