After Penny Arcade now CAD is featuring board games in it's comics. They've put out a comic featuring BSG (albeit not explicitly).

Oddly enough, it wasn't about the game, or even semi-co-operative games.... it could've been so many other games really.

Ehh, that's Control-Alt-Del for ya. I've read this webcomic before, so I knew what to expect. Still, I'm going to be so bold as to say even this type of exposure is still good (assuming they know it's the board game, and not some CCG, or the board game from 20 years ago)


Speaking of which, it would've made more sense if one of the players accused another player of being a cylon, and then to prove it, actually shot the other player in the head. Then some confusion about execution in the game vs. IRL, a cavalier "whoops", and just move on in the game without him.

That was not funny. It was supposed to be funny, right?

In the context of CAD & Players 1-4, probably yes.

There is no need to be funny when you create a webcomic. Just draw something gross and/or immature, or make an obvious pop culture reference. Instant laughs from a large part of the teenage male audience.

And? It still doesn't make it a good comic.

There's no doubt that there there's a basestar and couple of raiders off board, and the portion of the board denotes the "pizza pie" division of the sectors. The issue is separating cards into their respective categories could've been so many other games... Arkham Horror, Pandemic, etc. If you want to use BSG, IMO, it would've been more appropriate to do material about the actual game itself, like executions, figuring out who the cylon was, spiking skill checks, etc.
