6-player game with Pegasus, Exodus and Daybreak

This is a rematch of game 444 - Two Raiders Were Approaching

Final Destination:
Players will choose by simple vote the final destination between New Caprica, Ionian Nebula and Earth. If there is a tie, I reserve the right to decide the final destination

Cylon Fleet Board:
Players will choose by simple vote if the Cylon Fleet Board will be used instead of CAC

Cylon Leaders:
They are optional. If there is a Cylon Leader, we'll use the Mutineer rule. I particularly prefer CL + Mutineer for 5 players. However, if nobody chooses a CL, we'll shuffle 2 YAAC cards on the deck :-)

Further options and clarifications:
Investigative Committee only reveals destiny after everyone else plays
Personal Goals and Final Five shuffled in the Loyalty deck

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

If you find out I made any mistakes, don't hesitate to tell me!

The following rules are copied from another game and adapted:

d10-1 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.

d10-2 All players must have their own copies of the game as I am only going to publish card titles (this is an FFG request).

d10-3 Private communication will be by geekmail between me and particular players, all other communication will be by posting in this thread.

d10-4 Start your geekmail subject line with "BSG 464 - " and your character name.

d10-5 Send me COs whenever possible. COs are only valid when sent through geekmail (COs on the forum thread will be ignored).

d10-6 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

d10-7 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:

d10-1 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.

d10-2 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

d10-3 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)

d10-4 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!

Thanks for having us again! I wanted to say that, while I don't have a particular objection to it, I've often seen that 3 humans, 1 Cylon, and 1 Cylon Leader can be a very lonely experience for the Cylon. For that reason, I find that the standard 2 Cylon setup is preferable, although I surely love playing with Cylon Leaders, and wouldn't complain if we went that way. I wanted to see if we have a consensus on that before starting - we risk a very one-sided game.

I agree with every part of this statement. Although if we go to Earth, a single cylon may still be enough for the humans to lose.

Six would be good. We could guiltlessly pick a Cylon Leader. Seven player games take longer, but that's not that much of an issue, so I'd be down.

5> 6 with mutineer > 6 with CL

That's how I'd rank them. Also lets not mix CFB and earth unless I'm guarenteed a Cylon card as that's just a disaster waiting to happen.

6 player with a CL would be my preference. CL games always spice things up devil

I voted 'CAC's up there, which actually tied the vote, but I dont really mind, so CFB was fun last time and will still be fine if that's mostly what you guys want.

Hi guys!

I'm Mawkee's friend, Rick, I was following 444, it was a great game! Who don't love a climatic ending like that? It would be tragic if all the players lista! We tão proclamate the mod as winner? Lol

When I saw that the game was going to have a rematch I was cheering for a spot, and luckly (for me) the CL wasn't interested.

Well, if you guys need a replacement, I would be glad to be a part of this game! I am experienced in BSG and have the habit of checking BGG lots of times per Day, so I can guarantee that I am a fast player.

If you rather go 5 players no problem at all! I'll just spectate again.

I have a good experience playing as CL, if no one has no desire to pick that role I would be glad to do so, but instead of Doral I am more an Athena guy.

As for the list, I'll help running through it. Dan showed me the improvements of the spreadsheet, so I'll mod a game.

He didn't vote. I asked him via IM if he prefers CAC or CFB, and he prefers CAC. I think it's easier using Earth, so I think we're good to go on that

Really very sorry to be selfish and choose the CL, but i've never ever had the opportunity to play as Simon O'Neill before.


Obviously being the CL is a very difficult position to take and often attracts a lot of hatred towards them, but I would like to remind you all of:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kingmaker#In_game_theory
so unless i'm obviously being hostile then i'd appreciate some sympathy, and then i'm definitely more likely to try and help you all.

That's what I voted for, and I do love the extra tension.
Also missions should be fun.

Personally I think that as a human player, the extra 2 distance to travel probably is not worth the ability to do missions, but then again I have had a lot of human victories lately, so maybe giving the cylons more time to do their dirty work might even the odds... devil

Yeah, the CL is the very popular character type; being a unique character

1st player last time picked it, and as first player this time I did that as well. cool

I'll just put this out here before i've even seen my motives: I do like to infiltrate.

Obviously it will totally depend on which motives I get, but I do like to mostly act as a human player if I can, so please treat me as one of the normal group, unless there's an obviously hostile action.
I dont think it's worth actions/cards to brig/execute the CL just for the chance that they might be against you.
