Welcome to the Battlestar Galactica play-by-forum game Contest of Wills.
I will be your host.

This will be a 6 player game, Pegasus and Exodus. Destination and which parts of Exodus that will be used will be player's choice.

Players are expected to be familiar with all the rules of Battlestar Galactica, especially the rules of secrecy regarding cards. Each player also needs a copy of the game, because I am only allowed to reveal card names, not texts.

Players are allowed to post game discussions and tactics discussions in normal text like this.
Italics are used for roleplaying and flavor, which often adds good ambience and fun to the games.
Bold text is used for orders. Examples of orders are moves, card plays, actions, attacks, and other things. I will not take an action for your character unless posted in bold.

I will ask that players not geekmail/email each other to discuss game tactics in order to keep knowledge from other players. The nature of the game is that all table discussion is heard by all players. That being said, it is allowable to geekmail certain instructions to me rather than posting (like playing Investigative Committee or Strategic Planning). Conditional orders, in order to speed up gameplay, are also acceptable and greatly encouraged. I will expect all players to keep on top of their Once-per-game ability. I will not prompt for these, so if you believe you may use it, post it or send me a conditional order.

For skill checks, I will post an interrupt chart regarding possible Investigative Committee or Scientific Research or Reckless plays. For die rolls, I ask that if a player would like to wait for a possible Strategic Planning card, that they mention this in their post. The game will go too slowly if we post an interrupt for every single die roll. Obviously, it would be good to send a conditional order if you would like a Strategic Planning card to be used for a viper attack or cylon ship attacks. Please check ahead to see what will likely be occuring and stay on top of it, as I will not backtrack. (I will backtrack if I make a mistake but I will not backtrack due to someone else's mistake.)

Please try to check the board at least once or twice a day so that we can get through people's turns in good time. My timezone is US Mountain (GMT-7). I will usually be on 2-3 times a day (at home mostly but occasionally from work).

Please identify your character frequently. There is a great list of images to use here: Battlestar Galactica - Online BGG Game - Photo Gallery / Avatars
When posting a skill card play, please use color codes with lowercase color (Ex: color=purple instead of COLOR=#990099) as these are the color codes I will be using on all my posts. This will make it easier to follow for everyone.
Politics code orange (yellow is too difficult to see)
Leadership code green
Tactics code purple
Piloting code red
Engineering code blue
Treachery code brown

I will send card draws and hand reminders via geekmail. Players are, of course, urged to keep track of their hands.
All card related items as well as random events such as damage will be handled by the OO spreadsheet designed by

All die rolls will be handled by the BGG forum die rolling tool and will be visible in each post.

Most of all, have fun.

We will begin the game when all invitees have checked in.

In, and request to use the CFB. Not concerned either way about other parts of Exodus. As to destination, I'm not too concerned.

I'm not interested in New Cap, but don't want to hold anyone else back from playing it, so I will pass.

My opinion on New Caprica has always been that it's not bad, but doesn't add enough to the game to make it worth the additional time and trouble to set up... the time and trouble factor don't seem like much of an issue in pbf though.

If we use the Cylon Fleet, could we keep “Mining Asteroid” in the destination deck?
