Welcome to the
Youri Gagarin

Welcome to my third moderated BSG game. It will be called "The Youri Gargarin" in respect for the first human in space.

This will be a 6-player Base game with Sympathizer by invite-only. It will be an all time-zone game. Therefore, it might take a bit longer. Thus, I request if any possible that every player uses access to the game at least once a day.
Please use banners and images to give more flavour to the game and identify your character with your posts.
Images and banners can be found here: http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/42419/battlestar-galactica...

I look forward to your contribution.
Have fun!

Some general things at first:
All board images will be posted in-thread. There will be no geeklist. I have made good experience without that as mod as well as as player.

All usual rules for the PBF games apply - see other threads for a precise list of how this all works. Specifically, please note:

+ Everyone needs to have the game in real.
* Use normal text for dicussions, etc
* Use Italics for flavour text/fluff
* Use Bold writing for an in-game action. I won't process any decisions/actions unless bolded in the thread.

I will accept the TANK option for quicker play. If during the interrupt phase all non-revealed cylons will vote for TANK in bold, the skill check will be passed thru. Cylons should consider COs for that case.

Generally I ask for working with COs as much as possible.

Invited Players:

Unfortunately, I won't be able to make it.

I'm still between houses at the moment, and won't be set for about another week.

Best of luck with the game,

-Michael

Nice, we have 5 starters already.
One general thing, please give all COs by a private message. It's usually staff that stays hidden to other players. Thank you!

Sorry, I assumed character selection COs could be public since no one has any information yet. I will use PMs for all future COs.

I will choose Helo.

Looking forward to the game, everyone!



Well, I guess I may as well make myself comfortable. I wonder how things are going on Galactica. . .

Lt. Agathon, eh? Well, the choice is clear, then.

I'll go with Boomer.

Edit: Forgot the skill draw portion. I'll draw one each of Engineering, Tactics, and Piloting, please.

Bottoms up, Helo!

Great, meaning Ackbar117 is up to choose. You can pick Tyrol or a politician.

BTW: Having Helo on start will mean, you will all start in turn 1.1 with a crisis card only.

Crew members, I hereby inform you that Ms. Laura Roslin is going to be your President. Including her initial draw, she will be dealt one quorum card.

I don't want to push as I am in a different time zone anyway, but I find it helpful to have the highlighted name or character resp. of who is up to post next. So, I will stick to it.

Scott you are up next. All 6 remaining characters are available.

Since, out of all the remaining characters, I have yet to play him yet, I'll select Caprica's Sweetheart: Dr. Gaius Baltar.

I will draw 1 Leadership, 2 Politics.

Well, guess Rebecca up to you now. You may choose a remaining pilot or military leader.

With the choose of Boomer and Baltar, it is already clear that all 14 loyality cards will be needed independent of Rebecca's choice. I will deal out initial draws and loyality cards now to all players except Rebecca.

Resulting from Rebecca's choice, Tigh receives the Admiral's title.


Turn 1.1: Lt. Helo Agathon

Helo draws 2 Leadership, 2 Tactics and 1 Piloting.



Generally, if not stated otherwise, board updates show the beginning of the turn after the draw of the current player.


Helo is stranded. No move, no action.

Your crisis card is Food Shortage (R/J).
Ms. President, your decision please.


PS: I will use the following abbreviations for crisis cards activations:
B: Activate base stars
H: Activate Heavy Raiders (& centurions)
R: Activate Raiders
L: Launch Raiders
J: Jump track progresses
-: Jump track does not progress

Not a problem, Madam President. I would have chosen the same.

Helo Discards 1 - Executive Order, 1 - Launch Scout, and 2-Evasive Manouvers.

So, any thoughts for my turn? Since there's not much going on at the moment, and I can't draw XOs, I think my best option might be to shuffle on over to the Press Room to start pumping up our card pool. Especially now that we're now even lower on cards than before (though I do think that was the right crisis choice).

The other option is hopping into a viper, but that doesn't seem terribly necessary. Plus, while I don't have my turn draw yet, there's not much I'll be able to do with that second action.

So, thoughts? Feelings? Deep-seated suspicions?

Food drops to 7.

Raiders activate
: 3 raiders move from sector 1 to sector 2.

Jump track advances to 1.


Turn 1.2: Sharon Valerii

Boomer draws 2 Tactics, 2 Piloting and 1 Engineering.




Boomer, when ready, post your move and action, please.

Boomer, I think you're probably right that hopping into a viper doesn't do us much good. That said, I don't really have any opinion either way.

(as an aside, nice entrance admiral)
