They say you just can't keep a good ship down, and despite lack of Food and a decimated Population, it appears the intrepid crew of the BSG Starfortress is hoping the third time is the charm. It's time for:
BSG 58 - Starfortress III

Yes, a rematch has been requested, reuniting the crew of BSG 44 - Starfortress Revisited for yet another attempt.

For those following along at home, our faithful crew consists of:
boltana
bungeeboy
ericlui
Poor Frisco
tbear326


Board images will be posted in this thread and on the [url=]Geeklist for this game[/url].

This will be a standard 5-player base game, with the addition of the Pegasus rule regarding a 10-Quorum-card hand limit for the President.

If you need any more information on how this or other PBF games run, please visit the BSG PBF Wiki for details.

Before I do starting order, I wanted to bring up the Quorum Deck hand limit rule. I know there were some comments about it and I wanted to put it to a vote for this game.

I'm ok with playing by the Pegasus 10 card hand limit. The Quorom cycle trick doesn't come up every game, but can make an impact as we saw with the centurions. SO in interest of fairness to bungeeboy...I mean our cylon "friends", I say go with the limit.

Despite having won the last game inspite of this tactic, I vote for limiting it's potential further abuse.

Yeah, I'll be a first-time dad on or around June 17th. I don't think my wife will appreciate it if I'm checking this game for updates on my phone while we're in the delivery room.

That and I want to try to set a speed record. Top 3 with our last game, including holidays? We can totally top the list. We get an Achievement for that, right?

Congrats Ian and Mrs. Ian. Thats a very exciting time.

In an effort to choose a partial pilot and short game, I'll take Helo.

I'll be chilling on Caprica till a Raptor from Galitica can break free for me.

Okay, but if we manage that, you have to name the baby "Starbuck".

Hmmm... We have been looking for a middle name...

Against my usual better judgment, I'll pick Chief Tyrol.. No fighter jockeys trying to pass themselves off as knuckledraggers this game, we're gonna keep Galactica running right!

That sounds like ominous words. Perphas I might want to look into accommodations here on Caprica if Galatica is that damage. whistle

Well, you're Helo, so we already know you're a Cylon... So if you want to just stay on Caprica, fine with us!

Well there goes the paranoia level. After all we know 1 of the 2 cylons will be Bungeeboy. sauron

Wait you mean loyalty cards have not been dealt yet? In that case move along. Nothing to see here knuckledraggers.

I am officially excited to be playing again. I'm very glad everyone's back for another round, and that Orphius is doing the hard word of moderating for us again. I hope you guys have all enjoyed the past games as much as I have, and that we'll enjoy this one as much or more!

Let's see, Eric L is picking next, and choosing between Politician or Pilot... Having just been a Pilot last game, I'll predict Politician this game. Back to Roslin, as in Starfortress I? Or perhaps Baltar in the hopes of getting to play on the Cylon side this go-around? Or perhaps Zarek, for something completely different? My money's on Roslin.

I would love to play a pilot this game, but it all depends on Eric.


Orphius, you are a saint. Thank you so much for going 3 for 3 with us.

It was, until he sold his silicon soul... Then it was Starbuck. By attempting to address Humanity's problems in this area, I am probably guaranteeing my own Cylonhood.

Well, variety is the spice of life, so no Roslin or Pilot for me. Let's speak for the people; Tom Zarek joins the crew of Galactica.

Variety indeed! I shall play Captain Adama. Chief, I expect you to keep my vipers in good order.

I'll start with 1 politics, 1 tactics, and [color=red]1 piloting.

Gosh, the hardest part is remembering new characters. I still think of Ian as Boomer from that first game sometimes.

I also would like to thank Orphius for running this third go around. Especially when running another game.

Your not alone. It took me till late in the last game to stop remembering people by character in last game.

It just hit me that Apollo was the only character not played in the past 2 games. That is kinda odd since he tends to be popular due to his flexibility.

Looks like Brian has free pick of the remaining character as we have 1 of each and the Chief. Not a bad place to be when picking last.

He also gets to be President or Admiral unless he takes a Pilot.
