My wife and I are about half way through our first ever play through of BSG. We just got to the sleeper phase.

In the 2-player game, no-one is a Cylon. After the sleeper phase, there is a 2 in 3 chance that one of the players is a Cylon.

We both drew our loyalty cards and took some time to read them. Disturbingly, she took a little longer to read her card than I did to read mine.

I, of course, told her that she is a fracking toaster, to which she responded that I am a microwave (she's not a massive fan of the show).

In any case, I think the game is about to get very interesting... There is a good chance one of us us a Cylon.

That ratio is if all the resources are more than half full. If the humans have done poorly so far, there could be a lesser chance one is a Cylon.

But I had a similar experience with my wife in our 2-player game: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/387560

To help prevent things like this, its a good idea to go over the 4 possible cylon cards (brig/sickbay someone, damage BSG, reduce morale), and then make everyone read the cards for 15 or so seconds. Regardless of number of players

I don't know about your wife, but I am certain that my 3-year old son is a Cylon. We often play family games in teams to help my 5 year old accept a win/loss more easily. Whoever is on the 3 year old's team always loses with him. Not only does he never help to get a win, he's often distracting his team mates by walking away from the table to sing a song, or he drops pieces, begs for snack, or manipulates game bits in some kind of weird Cylon voodoo ritual (to the untrained eye, it looks like creative play, but we know better.) And then he smiles and laughs, not in a bwa-ha-ha way, but still, it makes you wonder. He's awfully cute though. But he's a CYLON!!!!!

Are you sure we can trust him? He never actually said that he wasn't a Cylon.

What's even more suspicious is that he doesn't have a last name listed. What if it's "Doral"?

I say we take off and nuke the entire site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

Good catch, I didn't say anything about my loyalty card.

Could it all be an elaborate plot by Admiral Thrace (me) gain President Roslin's (my wife's) trust before sabotaging Galactica?

We had to put the game on hold last night because my wife had to go to bed early. I guess we won't know the full story until we finish the game...

Does she look like one of the known Cylon female model skinjobs?

6? Boomer?

The 'going to bed' is a known Cylon human male trapping mechanism. The game will never get finished.

I dunno, you tell me. This is her:


Does she look like a Cylon to you? I can't tell.
