    -1 fuel, -1 food, +1 population
    OR
    -1 morale

    Activate Raiders || + Jump Prep (Ignored for Caprica Location)

    Cayrus, your choice. However, since taking -1 Food would end the game, I'm sure you'll choose the other.

    -1 Morale (2/10)

    Alert Viper Pilot - When a viper is placed in a space area from the "Reserves", you may choose to pilot it and take 1 action. You may only do this when you are on a Galactica location, excluding the "Brig".

    Yep. Although if it followed the show, you should be able to and then just have to go back to the brig after. :P

    My gut says go for the skillcheck. I think we are my likely to starve to death long before the Toaster vents our air into space.

    Not quite...
    What are the chances of pulling two -2 fuels I wonder......

    Pretty good, at least in this case pulling a -2 and a -3.


    Penumbra realizes the end is near as the only two systems the fleet could jump to are both outside of their range of remaining Tylium...
    Barren Planet
    Distance 2
    Fuel -2
    Desolate Moon
    Distance 3
    Fuel -3

    Both will result in 0 Fuel remaining which means the fleet will NOT make it to Kobol.

    Cylon Victory!


    It doesn't seem that scouting the destination deck (or even the crisis deck for that matter) was on the Human's minds there towards the end.

    Granted, it would have taken quite a few scouts of the destination deck to save you guys... the next four destinations including the above two were -2 or more fuel.

    Thanks to all the players for the entertaining game.

    Some observations.

    Camacho was really ruling the roost early in this game. His incessant ability to constantly have the skill checks be under an Investigative Committee kept things slow for the first half. Helo was a Cylon from the very beginning (Adama turned at Sleeper) and BobCesca had no real opportunities to spike skill checks at all. I think that Camacho might have been a bit TOO heavy handed at times though and might have seemed almost too aggressive towards ideas which didn't align with his. When Adama turned Cylon, he used this to his advantage to sow the seeds of distrust towards Baltar.

    I honestly thought that Adama had it made there for a while (and Helo too!). Baltar suspected Adama...but seemed to suspect Apollo and Roslin more. Roslin and Apollo seemed to trust Baltar the least. Helo was home free and nobody suspected him. Honestly, I was surprised when BobCesca revealed because I thought he could have led the push to Brig a couple of humans easily while sabotaging things. I guess it was impossible for him to know who the other Cylon was though and so he couldn't know if he'd brig his teammate or not.

    Then Adama went and put in a 1 distance jump. His second or third of the game? He MIGHT have gotten away with it if he would have sent the Raptor out to scout for fuel...but he tipped his hand when he didn't even risk the Raptor. I remember everyone else really being on the verge of brigging Roslin I think and then it suddenly shifted to Adama. Baltar quickly looked at his loyalty cards and it went all downhill from there.

    However, the fate was pretty much sealed at this point I think... the game just went too long for the Humans. You can't really prevent the gradual decline of your resources and at almost 11 full rounds, it was too long for the humans to stretch any further.
