A modest turnout with ~15 people coming this evening. However, with the Hawks game on, and gaming this Saturday, perhaps people wanted to hold out a bit?

Nonetheless, we had another great summer evening at Hallmark with plenty of memorable moments!

One I never heard of.... but looked fun! Seems the goal is to make your family so miserable they die, while others try and make them happy. A storyteller with clear cards! How neat is that?

A game that Scott picked up at Origins.. but it was very long, and people had to start leaving. So it was called before completion.

6 is far too many it seems. However, hopefully we can see this soon!

Well, Bob recently started watching the series... and was all fired up. A few of us decided why not? And Brian (Not Mola.... I really need to ask him with his last name is so I can get an initial here...) stopped in as we were setting up, so we made it a 6 player with the Sympathetic Cylon.

Short Version: CYLONS WON. Reduced Population to 0 and then -3..... >.<

Cylons
Stosh - The Chief
Brian (Not M) - Starbuck* - Later Apollo... before he was a cylon.

Sympathetic Cylon
Nick - Dee - Had to win with humans while infiltrating.

Humans
Steve H - Baltar
Dylan - Admiral Adama
Wheeler Bob - Helo

So Starbuck was already under suspicion... because of an extra red card that spiked a check (turns out it was a new player mistake). Being suspicious, when the "A Verdict of Guilty" crisis card came up, Admiral Dylan Adama decided to execute Starbuck. Well... she was human. And we lost morale. So Brian picked Apolo to replace her, and THEN during the sleeper phase 2 turns later got a cylon card. So we jumped the gun...

Another interesting thing that happened this game. Our morale was at 3. And people kept XO'ing Baltar for his Quarum Cards. In a stunning more, Balter pulled off (with some moral support from Admiral Dylan Adama) 3 outstanding speeches, raising morale 3 times in a row! And after the Admiral nuked a base star, morale was boosted again thanks to a well timed card. So morale climbed back up all the way to 7!

However, the Raiders kept coming and coming, and Helo was unable to stem the tide alone (being a Raptor Pilot...). The raiders absolutely pulverized our civilian fleet, taking out way way way too many civilians, reducing out population to 0 (and then to -3 if you counted all we lost at once)

What to do with 6 people for a quick late game? 7 (er, 6...) wonders!

Scott "stacked" the deck to ensure that some of the new wonders from his pack got played, and we were all glad that he did. They are pretty neat and have a lot of fun abilities.

Scott - 66 - Great Wall (War, Blue, and Science for most points)
Mike McR - 52 - Hanging Gardens (Purple and Science for more points)
Steve H - 47 - Alexandria (Big focus on Blue, some Yellow)
Stosh - 46 - Manneken Pis (War and Science mostly)
Leah - 44 - Rhodes (Blue, Science and Purple mostly)
Jeremy - 40 - Stonehenge (Wonders and Science mainly)

I really liked the new wonders that we used. Was a lot of fun!
