Since January I have on and off been working on an Automated Play By Forum BSG - base game (Yes, I need a cool name for the project).

I have had some of my friends help me test it, and now I think it is ready for a closed beta, which is why I would like to invite 10 of you to come help me beta test the game.

As a beta tester your main job is to play the game the way it is supposed to be played – and in every other way, by screwing with my code; e.g. trying to give an XO to a guy in a different game, discarding the same card 3 times and so on. I can’t come up with all the ways you can try to cheat the game, so this is where I need the help of others.

As for now, the project is closed off to the public since it’s using the graphics provided by FFG. I haven’t been able to get in contact with FFG, so my goal is to make the game into a clone, using user created graphics, texts, names and such.

Therefore I’m also looking for people who will be willing to do some graphics and make our own version of every token, game board, character and such.

I also believe that I won’t be able to reuse the characters of BSG. I therefore figure I want to give people a chance at becoming the cloned version of which ever character they want.

If you want to be immortalized as the face of the cloned version of say Apollo, then take a picture of yourself, Photoshop in a nice pilot-outfit and send the picture plus a name-suggestion of the character to me.

Lastly, if you can provide pro bono legal counseling regarding IPR I would also like to hear from you. I don’t want this game to infringe on any property rights, but I also want to people to have the feeling that they know the characters and the universe.

If any of this caught your interest please write me a message describing how you would like to help, and (if possible) what your background is.

Is this something we can do solo, or do we need a 'multiplayer' environment?

It's a multiplayer game - i haven't looked into coding an AI, but i guess that could be put on the road map

I would love to help but I'm expecting a fairly busy next few months. If you need more assistance or guinea pigs in the future, let me know.
