[BSG:BG] Exodus Game 3 - Game Complete.

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.

    With a 5 player game, if someone picks a Cylon Leader, do they get a sympathetic or aggressive agenda? Don't think I've ever seen that scenario played out before.

    @Rius: 5 players is hostile with just one secret Cylon.
    Five Players: Create a nine-card deck consisting of:
    1 Card from the “You Are a Cylon” deck
    8 Cards from the “You Are Not a Cylon” deck
    Deal one random Hostile Agenda Card to the Cylon Leader.

    Pretty sure they get a aggressive agenda, since there would only be four players who could get a "You are a Cylon" card.

    I have no idea how to play this. Whoo!

    What i have learned:

    1. Don't play Laura Roslin
    2. Don't play admiral or president right off the bat as you can screw things up if you don't know what your doing
    3. Play admiral or the president to prevent other people from messing it up
    4. If you make a mistake in the card checks just own up to it

  • PlutoniumPlutonium Registered User regular
    edited February 2011
    I used to like to play Roslin, but in Exodus her ability becomes strictly worse without any assaults to dodge.

    Also, the rules state that you can't talk about what you did or didn't put into card checks.

  • DarianDarian Registered User regular
    edited February 2011
    The rules state that you cannot claim particular cards as your play. You can still say things like "I helped a lot" on that check or "I helped a little" or even "Wait, I think I actually hurt that check. Sorry."
    Skill Cards and Skill Checks: Players are prohibited from revealing the exact strength of cards in their hands. They may use vague terms such as “I can help out on this crisis a little bit,” but they may not make more specific statements such as “I am playing 5 piloting.” In addition, after a skill check is resolved, players may not identify which cards they played. The reason for these restrictions is to keep hidden information secret and to protect Cylon players from being discovered too easily.

    To be fair, someone saying "I screwed up, whoops" doesn't exactly inspire confidence in their humanity.

    On the other hand, when everyone else proves that there is no other place the card could have come from, it's better than saying "Nope, wasn't me."

    Game Preparation

    Seventeen players have signed up to play, of which fourteen have not played in a previous Exodus game. These fourteen are randomized to determine our players:
    1. Plutonium
    2. Darian
    3. Stiles
    4. Dracil
    5. Professor Phobos
    with our first few reserves if needed:
    1. Mordenthral
    2. Caprica
    3. Phyphor
    Plutonium, you are up to select your character first. Make your selections in cyan. For other players, conditional character selection orders can be made. Players may also draw their starting skills if desired, or may wait until characters have been selected and starting loyalties have been distributed.

    Reminder: Spectators will be allowed to make limited commentary as long as they do not interfere with the strategic play of the game. Observers should also post in lightskyblue italics to distinguish them from the players.

    I prefer not to have cylon leaders in 5 player games, because only one hidden cylon can make the game pretty boring frequently, but whatever. Up to Blarney.

    I won't restrict my players, the choices in this game are up to you all to decide. I'm just here to facilitate the game being run. Since you do seem to be in a bit of indecision, I'll take your next cyan-colored choice as final.

    Well, Plutonium has a good enough point. I guess I'm used to 7 player games bring played, so I'll go with Anastasia "Dee" Dualla and draw 1 tactics, 1 leadership, and 1 engineering, please.

    edited February 2011
    I kinda hope I'm not gonna be the only pilot though, because of the Cylon Fleet option. If I am going to be the only pilot, I should probably take Starbucks instead.

    What do you have in mind Professor Phobos?

    Edit: Nm, I'll just stay with Apollo. Looks like I essentially get 1.5 actions with CAG anyway.
