I was in similar situation - everyone in the Brig and me standing alone

That's why I love Daybreak.

Is this all from Mutiny?

At least Simon can get out the easy way...

And the wrong kind of Zarek to help get out. Or perhaps to make difficult to get out

Luck in games, in measured doses, is the catalyst which enables shocking game-changers that you'll remember and talk about forever.

Looks like a good moment to kick back, relax, and abuse the Quorum while hands refill (at least until the Cylons break cover)

No one thought about playing their Mcard, or getting rid of it via C1? Stuff like this needs to be managed.


Reminds me of a similar deal where "this is what happens when you have a cylon admiral", and they took 4 jumps to get to sleeper phase.

Turns out Esseb did touch the flag. Don't tell him I said so though.

Actually if everyone is on the human team and every in the brig, then I think the humans can auto-win.

If everyone stays in the brig, then crisis cards are drawn. However everyone still draws cards. If at least one player draws Engineering cards, then each turn everyone just draws cards and keeps the best ones.

Whoever draws engineering will eventually get the card that moves the jump track. Play that and repeat, cycling the deck.

You can even scout the destination deck to get the right destination, and scout for fuel infinite times (unless really unlucky)

Perhaps you can also gain infinite once per games, if you attempt the brig check to get out, play that miracle token card, and use change of plans to avoid the pass but perhaps still get the miracle token.

Using this, Laura could play the entire Quorum deck. The new Baltar could get infinite resources.

They weren't completely effective, but mostly things spiraled out of control when the hidden Cylons got some Exploit Weaknesses and Personal Vices, which after a reshuffle of the Treachery deck ended up mostly in the brigged humans' hands.

You can't raise any resource above 15. Oh, and Test the Limits only advances the jump track while it's in the red, and sometimes damages Galactica into the bargain, so you'd need to be careful about how fast you cycled it, and you'd still need some way of triggering a Jump...

Presumably-pro-human Simon un-infiltrates and re-infiltrates into FTL, of course.
