    EL with "Show Their True Nature: The Cylons have won and either you are in the Brig/Detention or you have been executed at least once."
    Jopi and Kiwi as regular cylons win.



    Some post game.

    Jopi....that assassination was very important. Jopi also got from his last draw two 6's Also on that note, here is the VERY next quorum card.

    EULOGY

    Action: If at least 1 Morale has been lost by a character being executed, gain +1 Morale. Then discard this card.

    If Kiwi had taken some other action the humans for sure would have been at 2 morale before any further crisis assuming SBR went quorum diving again. Zarek never got his OPG out either. 5,8,9 quorum cards later are all inspirational speeches. Unlikely but workable to get to.


    BUUUUUUUT

    Here are the next destinations.
    Tylium Planet

    Distance 1
    Lose 1 Fuel. The Admiral may risk 1 raptor to roll a die. On a 3+, gain 2 Fuel. Otherwise, destroy one raptor.
    Cylon Refinery

    Distance 2
    Lose 1 Fuel. The Admiral may risk 2 vipers to roll a die. If 6+, gain 2 Fuel. Otherwise, damage 2 vipers.

    Tylium Planet

    Distance 1
    Lose 1 Fuel. The Admiral may risk 1 raptor to roll a die. On a 3+, gain 2 Fuel. Otherwise, destroy one raptor.

    Desolate Moon

    Distance 3
    Lose 3 Fuel.

    If there wasn't enough fuel somehow for the desolate moon jump the next 2

    Derelict Basestar

    Distance 2
    Lose 1 Fuel. Then place 2 civilian ships in DELTA and 1 basestar in ALPHA. Damage the basestar once.
    Cylon Ambush

    Distance 3
    Lose 1 Fuel. Then place 1 basestar and 3 raiders in sector ALPHA and 3 civilian ships in sector DELTA.
    Next crisis, all would be post jump if fleet had survived.

    CYLON ATTACK: Ambush

    1. Launch Nukes
    2. Setup: ALPHA: 4 Raiders CHARLIE: 1 Civilian Ship DELTA: 1 Basestar, 4 Raiders ECHO: 2 Vipers, 1 Civilian Ship FOXTROT: 1 Civilian Ship

    -1 Food
    OR
    the President discards 2 Skill Cards, then the current player discards 3 Skill Cards

    CRISIS: Send Survey Team

    Current Player Chooses
    Skill check: TAC/PIL/ENG = 15

    OR

    Roll a die. If 5 or lower, -1 Fuel

    Post Crisis: Activate Raiders, +1 Jump Prep


    CRISIS: A Verdict of Guilty

    Admiral Chooses:
    Current player is executed and the Admiral discards 3 Skill Cards
    OR
    Damage Galatica twice

    Hahaha, my launch scout was the only positive card. Wow.

    We got pretty damn unlucky with our quorum draws. :-/ But then we needed a lot of luck to be able to pull out 4 distance with only 2 morale. Upcoming crises were hardly great. And Jopi made nice use of Cally's abilities - she makes a really scary cylon!

    I agree with Kiwi that the cylon leader being able to draw from the hostile agenda deck proved to be really unbalancing, even if neither regular cylon showed up until the sleeper phase. There were three full cylons out of six players, and the cylons will win an even fight pretty much every time. Of course, in retrospect executing E_L was a huge mistake, but he did seem fairly trustworthy at that point.

    How about a no-sympathizer Ionian Nebula game next?

    It was going alright for the colonials right up till when the sleeper phase hit, I think. Then you got piled on by an evil cylon leader, Jopi and my reveal all at once. It was all about applying pressure in too many places for you to do anything about it - do you deal with the raiders, or the cylon on board, or the morale, or... With three people drawing against you, I don't think there was anything you could have done about it given the cards.

    The quorum cards were pretty interesting. My first three were Encourage Mutiny, Arrest Order and Execute a Prisoner, much to j-L and my amusement. I could have done all sorts of interesting things if you hadn't stripped me of the presidency right after I woke up in the sleeper phase.

    As for next game, I'm keen, as long as it's not another rule mash-up. It's hard enough learning a game, without having to remember which part of which rule books apply

    No no no no no
    No no no no no no no
    No no no no ...yes?

    Hitting exactly four distance is pretty much the worst for the humans. Surviving a minimum of three jump cycles against three cylons was incredibly unlikely, no matter what else went wrong.

    Kiwi, you did really well for your first game! I know the rules can get confusing with multiple expansions and questionable rules conflicts. Congrats on your victory.

    Good game. Grats on the win Cylons


    A few take aways:

    - Games with cylon leaders are just .. meh. Especially if that puts half the players on team Evil. 2 cylons is bad enough, 3 is just insane.
    - I still believe the "no PM rule until cylons have revealed themselves" rule is exactly the wrong way around.

    Do we know who is going to host the next game? I can always do it again if people want me to. Just no Nebula. I am fine with doing anything else.

    Ideally we would run 2 games of 5 as that seems most balance. Maybe we could TRY the 7 player variant if we have enough players since 10 will probably push it since we also need 2 GMs. 6 doesn't quite seem balanced as well. I could run a pegasus only rules 5 person game if we have enough players but nothing with any exodus rules at all. Any tiny extra bit of confusion for me and the players makes it that much harder and I am gming WW big atm on top of other duties here.

    Ideally 2 games of 5 so long as they have different destinations. I am guessing we lack 10 people though?

    I might be willing to GM a game, actually. If that's okay, this weekend I'll try out using the DeckManager and maybe also try to boost my inbox size a bit.

    If that's two GMs, you also have me signed up, so you'd need nine more to finish off the lists.

    No no no no no
    No no no no no no no
    No no no no ...yes?

    Each GM could play in the other game if they want to and have time. Time being key no doubt.

    Yeah, time and inbox space would be limiting factors. Not to mention our dubious ability to find another seven players.

  13. #733
    I might play in another game depending on the rules.

    By the way, thanks for the game jacob. The time and effort of hosting is always appreciated, even if the game is a wipe-out and I complain the whole time.

  14. #734
    Oh yeah, I forgot to express my effusive gratitude. Thanks a ton for hosting, j-L!

    A belated thank you to j-L for hosting! Cally is an excellent character to play as unrevealed Cylon. Which I naturally didn't consider when picking her... And I had probably the best hand ever in the end:

    The last two ENG cards were a nice bomb to throw into a check, whereas the TAC 5 card was essential to get out of the brig. Also Red Tape and State of Emergency would have been good cards to spike a check. As long as the humans are busy enough with other things, there're many advantages to not revealing.

    I'm up for another game, if we're short on players.

    Rules will be Pegasus with no Exodus except for characters. 5 players, no cylon leaders. Kobol destination.

    I will be in that game, and if we think we have enough people, I will be willing to host a game to New Caprica with Exodus, and I am certain that the rules allow for a person to only be one or the other.

    Its just like WW lite and WW big. People can be in both, the games just need to be definitively different from one another which the destination and rule differences are. Not sure how many we have that would even want to be in two BSG games though.

    Well in that case, I will be taking signup in this thread as well, and I guess I will be hosting Season 11 along side Season 10?

    It will be New Caprica with Exodus and I will let the players pick if they want a Cylon Leader or not. I host with however many we get that want to play, but do keep in mind that at 7, you need a Cylon Leader.
