Brought out a few times. Personally, this was meh for me the first and only time I played it when it first came out. Enjoyed it enough this time to wonder how it would play with 3.

I watched this being played when I got there Saturday morning and waited for a game to get going, then had a chance to play myself to close out the day. Very clever, particularly with the use of the app to streamline the bookkeeping aspects of the game.

I didn't play, but Mark and Bill did. Didn't seem as complicated as the rules make it out to be.

Played just the base game with 6, and things looked really good for the human side of the equation - a 3 jump and the crisis that adds 1 to the distance traveled had the fleet in great shape early. Unfortunately, I got the sympathizer in the second loyalty round, which happened immediately before my turn. A tasty crisis from the Human Fleet location with damaging Galactica to send the next player (a human) to sickbay really started the ball rolling. Cylons won when an attack occurred and we ended up with all 4 centurions on the track, three marching together with the humans unable to score hits but once in many attempts, a good number with strategic planning in play.

Played this as a quick filler with bill. I always enjoy it. We played it wrong and it was faster and more brutal than it needed to be.

This game started right before dinner time, but it failed to hook the players sufficiently to keep us from terminating the game early in favor of food. A mix of building and a sort of worker placement (with the scholars) that might have been interesting, but you needed to be more invested in learning than everyone at the table appeared to be.

Always up for a game about evolution...wanted to play this for a while. It was a good game, though seemed a bit lucky to me (for all the card draws).

I really like this game, but this play fell flat and we called it early. The second edition changes some of the event cards to allow the iron throne owner to control whether mustering or supply actions occur. These cards came up repeatedly and the throne owners kept blocking these actions (understandable given their position at the time). I believe we also only had one bidding for throne in 7 turns.
Next time, I think we'll play with the first edition event deck.

Really, really enjoy this game and this is the first time I've gotten to play this in years. Very competitive throughout, though somewhere between turn 6 and 8 the wheels completely fell off for me and another player and although we'd been in the hunt for the whole game, we were behind the leaders by a wide margin in the end. I was very surprised that on the last turn I couldn't get a better spot in the order with my 10, 12, and 13 power cards still in hand, but the fates conspired against me and I ended up going fourth with a much, much lower card.

I guess this got played early on Friday. I wish I had played. I still think this is better than Puerto Rico, which is what unseat it from the top of the Alea line, all those years ago.
