Luck in games, in measured doses, is the catalyst which enables shocking game-changers that you'll remember and talk about forever.

Whenever a player gets to see the top crisis card and choose to leave it on top or bury it (either through Launch Scout or Boomer's Recon ability), everybody else must close their eyes, so nobody will know if the player put the crisis on top or on the bottom. The player cannot say what he did either.

Gives hidden cylons an opportunity for hidden sabotage, and makes cylon Boomer a little more powerful. And beware the player who keeps insisting on scouting by himself.

Interesting idea. It does Consult the Oracle much, much less useful. I'd be willing to try it out, though.

I don't really see the need for prohibiting saying which you did. An extra opportunity to claim your helping doesn't hurt...

Interesting idea, but the meta gaming of having to close ones eyes everytime someone uses LS, Reckon, or the new Human Fleet does seem to be a bit fiddly, at least I suspect with my groups.

Er .. the whole point is for the character to use their ability (scouting prowess or visions) to help the fleet while being observed doing this. What's the point of no one knowing if the character 'knowingly' helped or sabotaged the fleet ? yuk ... or having that ability and not being able to send the fleet into an ambush from your cylon buddies because you 'tossed a coin' over where to send the fleet shake.

I'd just allow players to lie about whether they kept it or buried it. But that's the part of the game I adore: Deceit and lying.
