    It's gonna be uphill. We need the president title to get more morale/food, but I dont think we have enough cards to get it through the administration-skillcheck...but then again, maybe Adama will reveal now?

    Baltar's outcome is the same regardless here. Playing all he can and failing or not playing and then having to discard.

    Heh, I'll give you an A for effort... but unfortunately, if you read the text on the Presidential Pardon card, it can only be used on any 'OTHER' player.

    Adama reveals his Cylon loyalty card:
    You are a CYLON!
    Action: Reveal this card and move to the Resurrection Ship. Draw 1 Super Crisis Card. If you are not in the Brig when this action occurs, you may send another player to the Brig.

    Adama discards the following cards to get down to three cards in hand:
    1 - Executive Order
    3 - Declare Emergency
    3 - Declare Emergency
    1 - Launch Scout
    2 - Launch Scout

    He draws a Super Crisis card and moves to the Resurrection Ship.

    Roslin becomes the new President.

    This has been maybe the longest game (in number of turns) of BSG I've seen in quite a long time.

    Not too surprising I suppose though since we have some newer players.

    if you XO me i will draw some repair cards and go repair some birds next time I either get an XO or it gets to be my turn

  • PenumbraPenumbra Registered User regular
    I suspect that's what I'll do. Scouting the destination deck is largely pointless by now, yes? We need 1 distance to hit 8 and then the next jump is the end.

    So realistically it would just be targetting the crisis deck, but I'm not sure how good that would be with two damaged locations on Galatica.

    And we need our raptors for jumping... so that answers that!

    No movement.

    Play 1 - Executive Order on Camacho.

    Roslin, Baltar. What say you?

    6 skill cards for 1 morale sounds fairly fair.

    I assume the "each player" does not include revealed cylons though?

    So Baltar has no cards and there are no Cylons in the air for Apollo to frak up. Shall I attempt to Quorum it up and, if so, is it worth the discard to try to get two?

    Edit: Or I could give the best damn speech of my political career.

    Looks like some one is getting ready to play their Fleet Mobilization super crisis card?

    Madam President, now that the evil cylons have contributed to this skillcheck I think we should discuss the possibilities of failing this one to save our cards. Since Adama tried to pardon his shiny metal behind out of the brig I think it's safe to assume that you have a Presidential Pardon in hand.

    Who should be thrown in the brig you say? It should of course be either Apollo or me. I will only draw 1 leadership card and if that's not an XO then I wont be able to get out and then we wont get a crisis on my turn and i wont draw my 5th card. If you on the other hand brig Apollo we will loose our only pilot until he's out again, but Apollo and I will draw a total of 3 leadership cards between us which greatly increase the chance of him getting out to and thereby getting a crisis on his turn.

    I dont mind going to the brig, but i can't figure out which choice is the best.

  • PenumbraPenumbra Registered User regular
    I will do what's best for the Fleet. As of right now, I cannot order additional overtime hours.

    I'm willing to take the brig since my turn comes around the latest, you will be able to contribute the most (unless we draw a crisis that has Piloting).

    Yeah, I actually hod no intention of passing the check. I just wanted our Cylon friends to waste cards.

    Anyway, looks like I will bring Apollo when the time comes.
