This is a personal geeklist to document my 40th birthday party on July 21st, which just had to be the best birthday I have ever celebrated!

It was all coordinated and organized by my best friend who is my loving wife. I was kept in the dark about the details. All I knew was the time and place, and my wife took care of the rest. The theme of the party was Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game, which is my all time favorite board game and SyFy SciFi television series.

This cardboard box was turned into a ballot box from the Adriatic. Nothing more than brown paper, tape, and Sharpie paint pens! It was used for guests to drop off birthday cards or monetary donations. At each table we also had Presidential Ballots under the table placards.

WARNING: SPOILERS!


On Galactica, there was a corridor where characters would post photographs of missing or dead friends/family members. This was a memorial for many of the characters that died in the series. Images of the characters were cropped inside Poloroid frames.

These were funny Presidential letters from Laura Roslin that were meant to be silly and poke fun at some aspects of the series that only a true fan would appreciate. They were randomly placed on the guest tables.

These were baked croissants with pieces of red bell peppers and made to resemble Cylon Raiders. A frakkin' toaster never tasted so good!

We had a large punch bowl filled with ice cold Ambrosia (aka Hawaiian Punch) for the guests. We decided to go with Hawaiian Punch because it was a family affair with many children.

Here is my BSG birthday cake that my wife ordered! It was a red velvet cake with cream cheese filling. It was so good! You can't tell by this picture, but there were also little Cylon Raiders made of marzipan on the sides of the cake.

There were 45+ party guests, including children. It was very humbling and wonderful to see so many friends come out and share this joyous experience with me.

Here are the party guests who sat left of the head table:



Here are the party guests who sat right of the head table. Also, that small room in the background with all the balloons was reserved for the children so the adults could hang out in the main dining area:



The party was hosted by Zimtbluete Chinese Restaurant in Einsiedlerhof (Kaiserslautern), Germany. The owner, Gwo-Yueh Rudolph is the owner and avid board and miniatures gamer.

I was so overwhelmed by the gifts and donations from all my wonderful friends. My wife had informed the guests in the invitations that gifts were not necessary, but if they wish to give me something that monetary cash for my trip to Spiel '13 in Essen would be greatly appreciated.

I received a bottle of Mead (for those Dungeon Crawl nights), 300,00 EUR, and...



and...



*These are the Civilian Vessels for Firestorm Armada. I received two packs of these to be painted and used as my civilian ships while playing Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game. Such an awesome pimp gift!
