Hey, what are you trying to do??!

6 Player P+X+D to Ionian Nebula

Hello! This is the one game of a series of 5 games I'm opening up.
Some rules will be pre-defined, others can be voted.


Further options and clarifications:
- The expansions we'll use on this game will be discussed / voted
- The Quorum will be limited to 10 cards
- CFB/CAC will be voted, if using Exodus
- Conflicted Loyalties will be voted, if using Exodus
- Cain will jump to the first non-scouted destination (the scouted destinations will be buried), if using Pegasus
- Cylon Leaders are allowed, if using Pegasus and/or Daybreak
- Destination will be voted

This game preamble is based on GerryRailBaron/fizzmore works. So thank you guys for all the hard work! It surely helps a lot

If you find out I made any mistakes, don't hesitate to tell me!

The following rules apply:

d10-1 You must subscribe to this thread. I prefer to play fast games whenever possible. You have to check at least once a day. More, if you have the time. I'm on GMT-3, and I will probably have access all through the day and a few hours during the night, during weekdays. During weekends I will update the game once or twice a day. If you have to leave for a period of time, no problems, life happens! Just don't let us hanging and notify us that you will be away for a few days.

d10-2 All players must have their own copies of the game as I am only going to publish card titles (this is an FFG request).

d10-3 Private communication will be by geekmail between me and particular players, all other communication will be by posting in this thread.

d10-4 Start your geekmail subject line with "BSG 572 - " and your character name.

d10-5 Send me COs whenever possible. COs are only valid when sent through geekmail (COs on the forum thread will be ignored).

d10-6 Please use the following posting conventions:
* Normal text for discussions.
* Italics for flavor texts.
* Bold for in-game moves and actions. I won't process any decisions/actions unless bolded in the thread or I receive them in geekmail.

If using a smart phone or other digital device that makes the above difficult, then please start with the line:

Bold: Name

d10-7 Make clear in each post who your character is by posting a banner or other character image at the top of your post. Great banners are available at http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/42419/item/1018128?com... (use the "medium" option to display them). If you find using a banner is too much of a hassle (or you are on your phone), at least list your character name at the top of your post.


============================================================

Standing Assumptions for Interrupts:

d10-1 Pass on any you don't have, but don't tell the thread until almost finished to hide the fact you haven't got it.

d10-2 Strategic Planning:
- Pass on Launch Scout if there are 2 or more Raptors.
- Pass on Cylon Attacks, Actions, etc.
- Pass on Viper Attacks vs Raiders & Basestars

d10-3 Evasive Maneuver:
Pass on EVERY use unless:
- YOU are in the viper being hit
- the viper is shielding a civilian from IMMEDIATE attack
- a viper is about to be destroyed (not damaged)

d10-4 Declare Emergency:
- Pass if you are the Target of Admiral's Quarters or Airlock
- Pass if you played skill cards against the check

Multiple offers may mean that current player will decide which one to use.

Or better: Get those Standing CO's in!

============================================================

Tanking skill checks:

When calling for interrupts on a skill check, you may also respond with "TANK" instead of pass. "TANK" means:

- I pass on playing interrupts
AND
- I want to pass on playing into the check if everyone else also tanks

Note that if you want, you can give me a private CO to play into a check even if you publicly state "TANK". If you do so and everyone else tanks, I'll stop the skill check right after you've played into the check and we'll continue manually from there.


Most important of all, have fun! If you're not having fun, you may be replaced. Yeah, that's a rule! :-P

The simplest nerf to Political Prowess just says it can't be used to pass an Airlock check. I'm also a big fan of nerfing Cain so you can't Scout with her OPG.

Personal Goals I'd like to see "and take another action" afterwards, but not going to push that.

The polls are closed, but CAC or CFB are both fine with me.

That poll went up and down rather quickly! But I have no preference on either so I suppose it doesn't matter.

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

I'm fairly ambivalent about Political Prowess. I do get why you want the change but there's only one of them in the deck so I don't generally see it making much difference. Cain's OPG has already been amended per the opening post of the game so I don't feel there's any need for further adjustments.

I feel the same about this one. It would be nice but not essential. I've never played with personal goals though so my only experience of them is through PBF's and I'm not sure how much they affect things.

I missed the polls too. I'd have a slight preference for the CFB given that we're including Exodus but I'm fine if we go for the CAC's (aka the second choice on that poll).

I must have probably misclicked when I made the post, it should NOT close in just a few hours!

I'll post another one

Regarding the nerf to Political Prowess, that makes one of the 5 best cards of the game be less useful than some of the 5-valued cards. And remember that Political Prowess can be countered by Change of Plans. So I'm usually against it; but I'm just moderating, so if most players agree to that, I'm OK with it

Regarding the Personal Goals rule, I'm indifferent. I'll place them both on the poll

Cain jumping to non-scouted destination is already on the opening post, as THN said

Indeed

It's settled then! We're using CFB, FF and PG, and PGs give back an action

It looks like you could use a pilot.

Choose Kat, start with 1 Leadership and 2 Piloting.


Magi210, you can choose any remaining character (except a Cylon leader).
