[BSG:BG] Exodus Game 01 - Game Over

Base Set, Pegasus Expansion, Exodus Expansion
After forty years passing without a single word from the Cylons, they returned, and all but eradicated the human race. In this time of strife, they must put aside the petty differences that once separated them and focus on one thing — survival.

Humanity's only hope of a future is to find a new home; a place called Earth. The Cylons, however, are in constant and tireless pursuit. They now look, breathe and bleed exactly like humans. Cylons have infiltrated the Fleet, destroyed resources, and threaten to finish the extermination they have begun. The humans have no choice but to run, plagued by the paranoia of an indistinguishable enemy.

Are you a Cylon who will help to erase any memory of the human race? Or will your resilience and determination to survive prove to the Cylons that humanity is worth saving?

In the basic version of the game, players take the roles of prominent figures in the remainder of humanity working toward the goal of reaching Kobol, the first step on the long road toward the legendary planet Earth. However, hidden among their ranks are Cylon infiltrators, who seek to end humanity for once and for all. The Pegasus expansion adds a new scenario following the second leg of humanity’s journey, to the settlement of New Caprica and the subsequent escape after the Cylons discover and occupy the planet. Pegasus joins the fleet to provide support and additional options, and the new role of Cylon Leader is introduced, whose goals may differ from their fellow Cylons. The Exodus expansion adds three modules to the game, including the Cylon Fleet board and CAG title, new Loyalty Cards in The Final Five and Personal Goals, and the Ionian Nebula goal, which introduces more effects through Trauma tokens that affect both the players as well as new NPCs among the fleet. The following rules apply to the new situations and rules introduced in the Pegasus and Exodus Expansions. For rules that apply solely to the base set, look to one of the older games.

    Turn 26: Tory Foster (Diorinix) | Crisis: Network Computers | Tory Foster tries to prepare for the worst and enacts a desperate plan to network the fleet's computers together. Unfortunately, the cylon virus is too powerful and humanity succumbs to the darkness...

    Cylon Victory has been achieved on Turn 26, due to depletion of the Population resource!

    A couple reasons not to use Pegasus:

    - Expansions are most playtested with the base set only, so less balance issues
    - Pegasus crisis cards will dilute the deck when we want to see new stuff, dammit
    - Less things to keep track for mr moderator (especially since we voted for all 3 exodus modules)
    - It already went kablooey on the escape from New Caprica :P

    In the future, hell yes Pegasus, but rather not for the first game. (This is of course only my opinion)

    Reasons to use Pegasus:

    - Full power to the main batteries! Those toaster sons of bitches will bemoan the Gods of probability when they see all the 8s I roll! BLAM! POW! ZAP! BANG!

    Not planning on playing, but I just wanted to mention:

    He never said you were voting on Pegasus components. He said you were voting on the presence of the Pegasus BOARD. Having Ellen available without the treachery-based skill cards and crisis cards would be just silly.

    And given the nature of the Cylon fleet locale, I'd personally be more than happy to have the big guns at your back. After all, the show runners specifically said they did what they did to Pegasus because it was just too frakkin' powerful!

    I would like to see as much of the new Exodus parts as possible, of course, but I'd be happy with just the Ionian Nebula as destination, including the new ally and token mechanics. Having said that, here are my votes;

    * Game Objective: Ionian Nebula (inc. Trauma, Allies, and Crossroads Phase)
    * No Opinion on Pegasus
    * No Opinion on # of Players... whatever avoids the Cylon Sympathizer cards
    * Yes to Conflicted Loyalties
    * Yes to Cylon Fleet Module

    Yeah, that's like... way too much stuff in one game, lol. But if you're willing to run it, I think it would all be easier to track and manage online in a slower paced game.

    Hm, if that's the case then I'd amend my vote to Yes Pegasus. I've played a couple of games of "Pegasus without Pegasus" and it felt markedly harder, which makes sense since the expansion is designed with Peggy's 4 additional hit points in mind. The last thing I want is a first round Cavil Aggressive Tactics + Primacy + Double Cylon Fleet combo :P

    Since we've got ten signups already, it looks like a safe bet to close the signups period tonight at 9PM PST/12AM EST/5AM UTC. Ionian Nebula is a certainty in terms of destination, inclusion of the other two Exodus modules also seem to be very likely. Inclusion of the Pegasus Board and consensus on number of players is less certain, though leaning towards including Pegasus and favoring 7 players over 6.

    I'm a relatively new player (I've played only 5 or so games IRL). I haven't played with New Caprica, as our group chooses only to use the Pegasus board w/o Caprica. We'll be adding it in soon, as our competency is increasing.

    If chosen, I'll abstain from voting and go along with the majority.

    Actually, you start with three Skill Cards out of your normal draw, not just one. In addition, since Gaeta has a two-card flexible draw, he could draw two of a single color or one of each, when he has the option of drawing Skill Cards. Make those adjustments, y'hear?

    El Skid gets the next pick - can't be a Military Leader.
