Welcome to BSG 360 - Round the World. This will be a 5 player base game of Battlestar Galactica. It is by invite only, from the BSG PBF Wiki.

As always I would like to give my sincere thanks to Coltsfan76 for bringing BSG to PBF, and to Vollick1979 for moderating the first PBF game I played...any errors I make will be blamed on bad habits picked up from him.

It's been a while since I've modded a game, and while I know the ropes, I may make an error here or there, so please feel free to double check all of the images posted and to speak up if you think anything's amiss.



Some particular notes for those taking part (you can find more notes and tips on nbergom's geeklist Tips and Tricks of BSG PBF):

1) SUBSCRIBE TO THIS THREAD. I like to run a relatively fast game, so plan on checking in a couple of times a day (morning/evening). I realize life gets busy, and it's not a big deal if there are times when you'll be off the grid for a couple of days (on a weekend trip, for example), but give me and your crew mates a heads up when you'll be away, and be generous with COs.

2) All players must have their own copies of the game as I am only going to publish card titles (this is an FFG request).

3) Private communication will be by geekmail between me and particular players, all other communication will be by posting in this thread.

4) Start your geekmail subject line with "BSG 360 - " and your character name.

5) To speed up the game, please use Conditional Orders (i.e., geekmail me what you will do if certain circumstances arise). All CO's must be sent to me via geekmail, not posted to the thread. CO's are particularly useful for interrupts, such as Evasive Maneuvers. A standard set of CO's is outlined at the bottom of the post, and those will all be considered to be in effect unless you tell me otherwise (and feel free to override them whenever you think it's warranted). Also, don't consider yourself limited by the default standing CO's: feel free to send me others as well. I can't emphasize this enough: conditional orders help the game run much more smoothly, especially when you know you'll be checking in less often for a day or two.

6) Please use the following posting conventions:
* Normal text for discussions.
* Italics for flavour texts.
* Bold for in-game moves and actions. I won't process any decisions/actions unless bolded in the thread or I receive them in geekmail.

6a)If using a smart phone or other digital device that makes the above difficult, then please start with the line:

Bold: Name

7) Make clear in each post who your character is by posting a banner or other character image at the top of your post. Great banners are available here (use the "medium" option to display them). If you find using a banner is too much of a hassle (or you are on your phone), at least list your character name at the top of your post.

For flavor, a useful selection of character pictures is hosted on this geeklist, though by all means provide your own if you wish. http://www.frak-that.com/ is a great site for finding shots from all episodes of the series.


============================================================

Standing Assumptions for Interrupts:
(Borrowed from GerryRailBaron with a couple small changes, thanks!)

1) Pass on any you don't have, but don't tell the thread until almost finished to hide the fact you haven't got it.

2) Strategic Planning:
- Pass on Launch Scout if there are 2 or more Raptors.
- Pass on Cylon Attacks, Actions, etc.
- Pass on Viper Attacks vs Raiders & BaseStars

3) Evasive Maneuver:
Pass on EVERY use unless:
- YOU are in the viper being hit
- the viper is shielding a civilian from IMMEDIATE attack

4) Declare Emergency:
- Pass if you are the Target of Admiral's Quarters
- Pass if you played skill cards against the check

Multiple offers may mean that current player will decide which one to use.

Or better: Get those Standing CO's in!

Tanking skill checks:

When calling for interrupts on a skill check, you may also respond with "TANK" instead of pass. "TANK" means:

- I pass on playing interrupts
AND
- I want to pass on playing into the check if everyone else also tanks

Note that if you want, you can give me a private CO to play into a check even if you publicly state "TANK". If you do so and everyone else tanks, I'll stop the skill check right after you've played into the check and we'll continue manually from there.

ah thanks for the invite - would be my first pbf, so very exciting. But I'm on family vacation for a couple weeks, and really can't check bgg except sporadically, so will have to pass. Have a great game!

I'm passing, as my wait list entry is to benchmark and determine wait times. (3-4 months btw).

Thanks again for running a game, and good hunting to all!

Welcome! We've got 4 out of 5, so I'm going to roll for turn order, and if our 5th player isn't first, we can start with character selection:

Circadian 1d100 = (70) = 70
drstrangelug 1d100 = (5) = 5
dim2a 1d100 = (27) = 27
Mike_Bonn 1d100 = (97) = 97
Player 5 1d100 = (88) = 88

I'll be quite busy this weekend, so let me just list my preferences here. After player 5 chooses, I'll pick...Roslin if she is available, Boomer if she is not. And one of those two must be available.

Also if I'm correct in assuming I'm player #5, I'll be our resident mad scientist and pick Baltar.

Assuming Circadian picks boomer,
I'll pick Admiral William Adama


A friendly reminder from your admiral -- send in your COs for initial draw

Thanks Bill, but I will draw my full hand.

Hi, everyone! Looking forward a fun game.
Some warnings: I like to make unorthodox moves and to play in character. Doesnt mean I am cylon, though! (Or does it?)
Also, I have a tradition to tip good, flavor posts, so go ahead and make them!

Good Hunting!

Well, since I'm last I dont wish to hold anyone up so I'll put my preferences in order. Take the first one that's available when all others are done.

1. If Boomer is not taken I will choose Starbuck.
My first draw will be Engineering x 1 , Piloting x 2 and Tactics x 2 .

2. If Boomer is taken I will choose Galen Tyrol
There is no choices in his skill picks.

3. If Tyrol is not available I will chose Lee Adama
First draw will be Politics x 2 and the Tactics x 1 Pilot x 2

If none of these choices are available I'll have to get back to you when I've seen what else we have and if we're short of skills anywhere.

If I read the previous posts right, Boomer is taken by Circadian, so you will get Galen Tyrol.

There are however choices in his initial draw -- you only get 3 cards to start with, so you'll need to figure out which 3. I would suggest one of them should be politics.

Good morning, Mr. President. I'm Lt. Valerii, and I'll be flying you over to Galactica at your earliest convenience. Admiral Adama requests your presence. And, if you don't mind my asking, who were you just talking to?

And Tigh, Cylons always say that. :-) Discuss your unorthodox moves before you bold them, if you please. Otherwise, I'll just have to go with my best guess as to whether Human-Tigh or Cylon-Tigh is more likely to have made that particular move.

My mistake :-)

Assuming I do get Galen Tyrol, my pick would be : Engineering x 2 and Politics x 1

Loyalty cards have been sent. Starting hands will be sent once I've received starting draws from all players.
