Some video games are more infectious than others. Pathogen, from Burlington-based Birnam Wood Games, is an elegant new app for mobile and tablet devices that's similar to classic games such as chess and Go. Players attempt to control the board by placing "cells" that multiply like viruses. It's easy to learn — kids as young as 5 should be able to figure it out — but difficult to master.
