6 Player X Expansions Game to Ionian Earth

This is a rematch of BSG 585 - Set Me Free Again (that's what you get for playing fast haha)

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 593 - " 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

The past journey was too easy for the humans. Let's do Ionian Earth

Also, I would like to institute a "house rule" that when the Cylon Reveals the Loyalty Card, the Cylon Player makes the decision on the reveal regardless of who's turn it is.

I've never played to the Ionian anything. I'll have to look up the rules for that, but I'm willing to play.

Ionian Earth is basically the Ionian Nebula destination from Exodus (the one with the allies), but with a distance of 10 instead of 8 and the Demetrius (including Missions).

Ionian Earth sounds like a lot of fun. Crossroads is pushed back to 10 as well, or does it stay at 8?

I'm fine with that Cylon reveal house rule.

Other House Rule questions:

If we play with Personal Goals, I assume (like in 585) they'll also grant an action once you reveal them?

Similarly, -1 to all resources if the second Cylon card is the only card in the Loyalty deck at the end of the game?

If we do Ionian Earth, what's our policy regarding secrecy and Allies? I normally play that you can't discuss the allies you placed at all (no saying they're "good" or "bad," no saying you're planning to meet them or recommending someone else should--although you can still use your information about the Ally to make other recommendations). Otherwise, you can all but say that an Ally is Benevolent or Antagonistic (unless you're just lying), which takes some of the fun out. But that's obviously a house rule, and Ionian Earth may be hard enough as it is with the extra distance.

I really like his OPG and FTL ability. His drawback is minimal. Let the unimaginative choices by me commence!
