I'm looking to run a large game following the rules I posted a while back with a few changes.

BSG for 10, 12 or 14.

If you are interested please add your name and indicate if you are currently playing in any other games.

BTW these should not be my normal text/icon format as I'm trying to use the .NET or Paint or whatever it's called.

This first game will be a 10 player game with just the base game.

I'm tempted to join, since I'm not in a game right now, but this actually sounds like not very much fun at all. If you're still low on people in a few days I'll put my name in.

Out of curiosity, what part doesn't sound fun? I obvious want to have a fun game.

I have only played BSG once... but I am quite willing to give this a go and I really want to get a game going . I just will be sure not to take a political leader or be the admiral this time around.

I would consider a being a new player the best time to be President or Admiral. That way, you can pretend that you don't fully know the rules or optimal plays yet, so you can be a Cylon without people calling you out too much.

I appreciate your overoptimism Jeremy. I've been away too long but I now have a degree under my belt so this games should improve by at least 0.0001% from the last time I use to mod.

Haha I was the President my first play and I chose Balter. So everyone was all "He's a toaster!" because I had 2 loyalty cards. I actually got all human cards the whole game and the person I was playing against mostly (Zark) was human too... and we didn't trust each other and kept trying to take the presidency back.

I'm honestly not sure. Dying to get into a game, but I'm not sure this is a good choice for my first PBF. I've played FtF 50+ times though. Is there anyone who did this the last time around who could supply feedback?

This is my first attempt at these rules. The idea was to keep the game as close to the original (balance, rules, etc) but allow more players in a way that would keep it reasonable and fun.

This shouldn't be much different then a normal PBF game just a bit crazier as it is pretty much two games being run together.

"A bit" crazier is right.

Depends on players; how many, preferences, etc.

If we have 10 then we can do Base or above.

If we have 12+ we need to at least do Pegasus or Exodus.

I was thinking of just doing everything but to Kobol (no cylon fleet).

I've made an executive decision.

This first game will be a 10 player game with just the base game.

I will start this as soon as I have 10 players willing to play as I have the paint program working.

Looking forward to a Kickstarter-style fundraiser to rake in players, although now withOUT the reach goals.

It just seems like a convoluted way to play two separate games on the same board, with more to have to keep track of. It certainly sounds better than just adding all ten players into a game, but I am still wary of it.

What could possibly go wrong, asides from everything exploding, being shot, dying of starvation, humanity going extinct, the Admiral flushing me out of the airlock, BEING the admiral and needing to flush people out of the airlock or watching Centurions turn off the life support?

Oh, right, waking up on the other side and discovering I was one of them...
