WELCOME TO DARK MOON. The Noguchi Masaki interplanetary mining corporation welcomes you to its outpost on Titan, the dark moon of Saturn! You will be joining an experienced crew of miners, technicians, and adventurous souls who live to experience all the wonders that our solar system has to offer. Purpose, loyalty, camaraderie, friendship, and sacrifice all await you as a new and valued member of the Noguchi Masaki family!
DARK MOON (formerly known as BSG Express), is a game of deception and betrayal at the cold edge of space.
You are a crew member on a deep space mining expedition to Titan, the dark moon of Saturn. During a routine excavation, an “incident” occurs whereby some of the crew become infected with an unknown virus, and become paranoid, deceitful, and violent, trying to destroy the others.
At the start of the game, players are divided into two teams: Uninfected and Infected. The Uninfected team simply needs to survive until the end of the game, while the Infected team secretly attempts to destroy them. Each player knows which team they are on, but does not know which team the other players are on! Who is your teammate and who is your enemy? Can you trust your best friend? And why doesn’t anyone trust you when you tell them you’re one of the good guys?!
Roll dice, overcome traumatic events, throw your friends in quarantine when you don’t believe them, and (if you’re Infected) betray everyone at just the right moment to secure victory!
Currently Dark Moon controversially shares the same BGG entry as BSG Express. BSG Express was a non-official/fan-made print-and-play game created in 2011 by the same game designer. BSG Express was created as a stream-lined, dice-based interpretation of the well-known FFG boardgame Battle Star Galactica. Although both Dark Moon and BSG Express share a similar hidden traitor and hidden dice-rolling mechanic, there are numerous and substantial mechanical differences between the two games, i.e., Dark Moon isn't just a simple thematic reimplementaion of BSG Express. In 2013 the designer removed the original BSG Express rules and game files from BGG (around the same time that Dark Moon was announced as being under development). At that time, BSG Express was the most downloaded print-and-play game on BGG.
Prior to the release of Dark Moon, the shared BGG entry contained around 230 ratings for BSG Express with an average score of 6.92. The BGG entry now contains a mixture of ratings for both games.
A two page (or single sheet front and back) rules reference. Page 1 covers turn order and tasks while Page 2 covers actions and other information players need to know (and might not be able to ask about).
A dramatic reading of the intro to Dark Moon from the rule book. Perhaps use it to set the mood before the game!
Warning! The recording contains mild language and a description of graphic violence. Also, it's intended to be pretty creepy. You may not want to play this for your young children.
