Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game is an exciting game of mistrust, intrigue, and the struggle for survival. Based on the epic and widely-acclaimed Sci Fi Channel series, Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game puts players in the role of one of ten of their favorite characters from the show. Each playable character has their own abilities and weaknesses, and must all work together in order for humanity to have any hope of survival. However, one or more players in every game secretly side with the Cylons. Players must attempt to expose the traitor while fuel shortages, food contaminations, and political unrest threatens to tear the fleet apart.
After the Cylon attack on the Colonies, the battered remnants of the human race are on the run, constantly searching for the next signpost on the road to Earth. They face the threat of Cylon attack from without, and treachery and crisis from within. Humanity must work together if they are to have any hope of survival…but how can they, when any of them may, in fact, be a Cylon agent?
Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game is a semi-cooperative game for 3-6 players ages 10 and up that can be played in 2-3 hours. Players choose from pilots, political leaders, military leaders, or engineers to crew Galactica. They are also dealt a loyalty card at the start of the game to determine if they are a human or Cylon along with an assortment of skill cards based on their characters abilities. Players then can move and take actions either on Galactica, on Colonial 1, or in a Viper. They need to collect skill cards, fend off Cylon ships, and keep Galactica and the fleet jumping. Each turn also brings a Crisis Card, various tasks that players must overcome. Players need to play matching skill cards to fend off the problems; skill cards that don't match hinder the players success. Fate could be working against the crew, or there could be a traitorous Cylon! As players get closer and closer towards reaching their Earth, another round of loyalty cards are passed out and more Cylons may turn up. If players can keep their up their food stores, fuel levels, ship morale, and population, and they can keep Galactica in one piece long enough to make it to Earth, the Humans win the game. But if the Cylon players reveal themselves at the right moment and bring down Galactica, the Humans have lost.

This aid provides each player with all location text and a map of where those locations rest relative to others in a standard board layout. It is useful for players who are sitting in orientations who cannot read the board text, or those whose eyesight isn't good enough to read the text across a large table. It is intended to speed decision making between turns, as well as allowing players to read locations without telegraphing their moves to other players (i.e. prevent people from getting suspicious of the guy who keeps reading the Cylon locations on the game board but hasn't revealed yet). Also included is the attack summary from the Daybreak Expansion. This aid incorporates elements and overlays from various expansions, but I'm sure you'll understand that it doesn't include ALL...
A simple spreadsheet that generates a legal set of characters based on player count and randomly assigns them to players. It allows for a choice of expansions, desired roles or characters, total number of "Support" roles, Cylon Leaders, and assigns initial titles (including CAG if using Exodus) to the crew for ease of reference.
I mainly designed this for groups who find themselves sticking to their favorite characters every game and want to mix it up, or to speed up the character selection process for new (or indecisive) players. Hope you find it useful.
Added for version 3:
- Now supports Cylon Leaders & further cosmetic improvements
I made these for myself - now all expansions somewhat fit in one of the four boxes, saving precious shelf space - but figured someone else might benefit from these too.
Crisis cards barely fit in their boxes (if the non-Cylon Fleet cards are removed) so you might want to print an extra one.
Cudos to Robin Moss who provided the blank templates for these.
I have modified them a bit and made my own reference cards for the things I used to look up when playing.
Included are: Turn Sequence and Actions
Cylon Reveal and Turn
Rules for playing a BSG campaign of four full games. They mostly add the expansions in order, but some components are exceptions (the Cylon Fleet Board is used with Kobol and New Caprica but not the other objectives, for example). Each game impacts the setup for the following ones. There's an optional scoring system for the really competitive types. And the rules can all fit on one piece of paper (front and back)! (Now with the rest of a sentence that wasn't in the original upload!)
This is a Word document that contains the text (sometimes shortened to save space) for each of the locations in the original base game of BSG plus the four expansions. It is color coded to indicate human actions or Cylon actions (when they are different.) Taken from various resources on the web and streamlined. I hope it helps.
Version 2 - corrects a spelling error and italicizes a comment regarding the Human Fleet location on Pegasus.

A játékot így az is tudja rendesen követni, akinek gondot okoz az angol. Persze még így is jobb, ha vannak angolosok az asztal körül.
