6 Player All Expansions Game to Kobol

Hello! This is the one game of a series of 3 4 games I'm opening up.
Some rules will be pre-defined, others can be voted.


Further options and clarifications:
- The expansions we'll use on this game will be discussed / voted
- The Quorum will be limited to 10 cards
- CFB/CAC will be voted, if using Exodus
- Conflicted Loyalties will be voted, if using Exodus
- Cain will jump to the first non-scouted destination (the scouted destinations will be buried), if using Pegasus
- Cylon Leaders are allowed, if using Pegasus and/or Daybreak
- Destination will be voted
- If somebody else suggests a house rule and I agree it makes sense, I'll put it into voting before we decide to use it or not

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 apply:

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 588 - " 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 important of all, have fun! If you're not having fun, you may be replaced. Yeah, that's a rule! :-P

Unfortunately, no... I opened this game because some people wanted Kobol as destination, New Caprica wasn't voted as preferred for any player on the main thread (584)

Checking in and just voted
In we end up using CFB in the end then I'm 10000000000000000000000000 times against PG...

PG are good with CaC but cylons doesn't need more help than they actually get with their CFB toy

That's my only point
I don't mind for all the rest

Personal preference as already said here and there would be CaC with PG and no CFB

But flexible as usual meeple

Ok, so we will use CFB and Final Five. Let's randomize the order now

(yes, I did vote)

oriecat 1d1008 = (862) = 862
anatinus 1d1008 = (475) = 475
Vorpalgens 1d1008 = (159) = 159
larabair 1d1008 = (266) = 266
j1234j1234 1d1008 = (171) = 171
Caimion 1d1008 = (153) = 153

Never played standard Helo in a PBF, so since I'm first, let's give that a try.

I think that's an awkward conversation scheduled for round 2.

I think the turn order is different than the dice have decreed! I think I'm last, and j1234j1234 should pick before Vorpalgens.

Good catch, Neil.

Thanks, Neil! Blame it on j1234j1234 and his numbered nickname that made me think the first 1 was part of his name :-P

(I always roll 1d1008 for order, and this is the first time someone noticed it)

Well that was unexpected =p
I am tempted to pick cally but figure I should leave that for caimion... So let's be Starbuck. Tactics, piloting, leadership for starting draw.

(Will sort out the banner when I get home)

Probably.

Bah, I'm always surprised when I do not pick last...
So am surprised now

We are like in the 3rd BSG-PBF era (so to speak) and that karma has always been following me since 2011...
