This will be a 5 player base game to Kobol using cymod.net

Standard secrecy rules apply, and i'd prefer the interupt tokens to be on this BGG thread rather than cymod so it's clear to lurkers what is happening, but feel free to mirror the token on cymod as well.

Anyone can join - just simply post in this thread!

Most people on the waiting list seem to want to wait to play an expansion game, and they wont mind an extra PBF game being set up because it wont slow down their games at all.

I'll set variant rules as:
- 10 card quorum limit,
- cylons immediately pass other loyalty cards,
- Investigative Committees do NOT reveal destiny.
(These variant rules seem quite popular for balance, if people strongly want to alter these then feel free to discuss it)

All players will be assumed to have a standing CO to pass on SPs for cylon ship activations, and players attacking raiders and scouting (if 2 or more raptors remain) Please post in advance if you think a situation will come up soon where you want people to wait for your SP interupt.

Rolling for turn order then:

Mike_Bonn - MB 1d1000 = (189) = 189
Vorpalgens - vorp 1d1000 = (33) = 33
oldpear - pear 1d1000 = (707) = 707
alexbond45 - alex 1d1000 = (725) = 725

Right, Turn order is:

Starfox4 -
alexbond45 -
oldpear -
Mike_Bonn -
Vorpalgens -

Aww, nice 33, you rolled Vorpalgens. Maybe that's a bad omen, and your first crisis card will be the CAC of the same name... whistle

I'll randomize my character choice, but i'm not including apollo, chief, and starbuck in the roll because i've already played (or am playing) as them:

1custom7{Roslin; Baltar; Zarek; Adama; Tigh; Helo; Boomer} -> ( Zarek) -> ( Zarek)

When you've chosen your character, log onto Cymod and join with your chosen character.
If you pick Roslin or Adama, then you can tick the checkbox to claim the president or admiral titles respectively.
Make sure you join with the correct turn order, as outlined above.

http://play.cymod.net/game/showPending/27

Next up is Alexbond45 to choose any none-politician character.

EDIT - Banner
Thought i'd add a bit more flare
(Kudos to mihaild from PBF406 for this one)

I choose...
Roslin!
(Not really)
I shall be Admiral Adama


My draw will be 2 Leadership 1 Tactics

Hand me the Cord!
All hands - this is the Admiral speaking. As of now, we are at war. 3 hours ago a nuke detonated above Caprica City - The President has offered unconditional surrender, but The Cylons refused to accept and continue to attack. We are regrouping with any ships that are within range and will do what we must to survive.

So say we all


(I assume I also post the draw here - not sure how to do font colors on mobile)

EDIT: added the italics speech

When you join Cymod, it lets you pick your player position, so you can add yourself now and just say you are position 4.

If you wish, you can wait to see your loyalty before choosing your starting draw - (if it makes a difference to you)

See pages 5 and 6:
http://new.fantasyflightgames.com/ffg_content/Battlestar_Gal...

Distributing the loyalty deck is step 6. Receiving skills is step 8.

Ooh, nice banner!
We'll need the rest of the players to join up on cymod before the game starts:
http://play.cymod.net/game/showPending/27

Once that's happened, anybody can click to start the game and then click the loyalty deck and distribute starting loyalty cards.
Then you can all draw your starting 3 cards (it doesnt matter which order you do that in - cards are random anyway)

I draw last - my full draw of all 5 cards.

I'll be away for a couple of hours or so, but when I get back i'll do my move and action and draw the first crisis (unless my action might be an XO, then we need more discussion and planning).

Just draw my cards. I got my first quorum card as well.

If I were XO'd I would move to Pres. Office and get ready to perform my duties.
