Hey, what are you trying to do??!

This game will be a 5 player game with NO EXPANSIONS. We will be playing the base game only, with the final objective to Kobol.

Further options and clarifications:
Investigative Committee only reveals destiny after everyone else plays

This game preamble is based on GerryRailBaron/fizzmore works. So thank you guys for all the hard work! It surely helps a lot

Hello everybody! Since my other game (#423) is running smoothly, I thought I'd take a shot at moderating the most "asked for" setup: the standard base game. So there it goes!

The following rules are copied from another game and adapted:

1. You must subscribe to this thread. I prefer to play fast games whenever possible. You have to check at least once a day. More, if you have the time. I'm on GMT-3, and I will probably have access all through the day and a few hours during the night, during weekdays. During weekends I will update the game once or twice a day. If you have to leave for a period of time, no problems, life happens! Just don't let us hanging and notify us that you will be away for a few days.

2. All players must have their own copies of the game as I am only going to publish card titles (this is an FFG request).

3. Private communication will be by geekmail between me and particular players, all other communication will be by posting in this thread.

4. Start your geekmail subject line with "BSG 429 - " and your character name.

5. Send me COs whenever possible. COs are only valid when sent through geekmail (COs on the forum thread will be ignored).

6. Please use the following posting conventions:
* Normal text for discussions.
* Italics for flavor texts.
* Bold for in-game moves and actions. I won't process any decisions/actions unless bolded in the thread or I receive them in geekmail.

If using a smart phone or other digital device that makes the above difficult, then please start with the line:

Bold: Name

7. Make clear in each post who your character is by posting a banner or other character image at the top of your post. Great banners are available at http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/42419/item/1018128?com... (use the "medium" option to display them). If you find using a banner is too much of a hassle (or you are on your phone), at least list your character name at the top of your post.


============================================================

Standing Assumptions for Interrupts:

1. Pass on any you don't have, but don't tell the thread until almost finished to hide the fact you haven't got it.

2. Strategic Planning:
- Pass on Launch Scout if there are 2 or more Raptors.
- Pass on Cylon Attacks, Actions, etc.
- Pass on Viper Attacks vs Raiders & Basestars

3. Evasive Maneuver:
Pass on EVERY use unless:
- YOU are in the viper being hit
- the viper is shielding a civilian from IMMEDIATE attack
- a viper is about to be destroyed (not damaged)

4. Declare Emergency:
- Pass if you are the Target of Admiral's Quarters or Airlock
- Pass if you played skill cards against the check

Multiple offers may mean that current player will decide which one to use.

Or better: Get those Standing CO's in!

============================================================

Tanking skill checks:

When calling for interrupts on a skill check, you may also respond with "TANK" instead of pass. "TANK" means:

- I pass on playing interrupts
AND
- I want to pass on playing into the check if everyone else also tanks

Note that if you want, you can give me a private CO to play into a check even if you publicly state "TANK". If you do so and everyone else tanks, I'll stop the skill check right after you've played into the check and we'll continue manually from there.


Most of all, have fun!

IMPORTANT! - I will wait until the end of today (Aug 05) before starting replacing players. However, I will only put an * on the user on the BSG PBF Wiki Waiting List if there is no reply before tomorrow ends (Aug 06), even if I replace the players. I think it's fair to give a better opportunity for people that reply more quickly, without compromising players with "normal" reply time.

The following players were invited:
mowglee (Confirmed)
Tunicate (Confirmed)
Chrichton77 (Confirmed)
slinkydink (Confirmed)
dim2a (Confirmed)

The following players ignored the invitation:
pfischer (Ignored invitation)

To the players who were already invited - you can leave a CO for your selected character, if you want. I will randomize the order to select them.

Do I get three? I couldn't remember. If so I'll take another leadership.

Oh, I think I see where the confusion is coming from... _revealed_ cylons get two cards on their draw. Unrevealed (on initial turn) still get 3

Baltar, I believe you are limited to maximum of your initial draw, thus at most 1 leadership... (could someone confirm?).
