Battlestar Galactica (cooperative)

Battlestar Galactica: This is a semi-cooperative game in which you take the role of the various characters from the television series and try to shepherd the human race to safety. However, at least one of the players will secretly be a Cylon, trying to sabotage the fleet. The rules are pretty straightforward but requires the players to work together to figure out how to win the game together as one has many options each turn. It's quite challenging so when you win as a human (together), it really feels like an accomplishment!  And when you win as a Cylon, you feel quite a thrill of insidious evil!  We'll try it with a couple of the expansions. Typically about five or so hours. Please don't sign up if you can't stay the course.  If you don't show up on time you may be dropped from the game.

We may end as soon as 6pm or we could go as late as midnite (if we're in the mood to hang around and play something else).  Depends on how insatiable our hunger for gaming is!

If there is interest, I'll hold a tutorial starting at noon.

I'll be happy to open up additional tables if folks can bring more copies!

    Since the guacamole I brought disappeared quickly, I thought I'd share the recipe. Note I double the ingredients, and add a sprinkle of cayenne pepper. I also used limes, not lemons:

    My friend invited me to his art exhibition last minute (of course). If it ends before 1300 I'll be there, otherwise my rematch with those treacherous Cylons will have to wait.

    Oh yeah, forgot to say. Yes, I will do a tutorial so show up at noon sharp if you want to attend. Also, I guess I'll be hosting the beginner's table. Andrew will definitely be host of the expert table as he is a grandmaster at this game so if you want the ultimate BSG challenge or to learn from the best, be sure to be at his table. Orion or Dustin will be hosting the third table.

    We're going to be there tomorrow, and we're bringing homemade guacamole. Chips, too, though they're not homemade.

    Sorry--I have symphony tickets for that night, so I likely couldn't finish the game, though it sounds awesome.

      No-Time for Three at Meyerhoff. Strange that they're on the same day, but I guess they only need some of the whole symphony.

    Is it a coincidence you're playing BSG on Star Wars Day? (You know, "May the Fourth be with you.")

    Joe, I'd like to get in too, and I'll bring my copy of the game with Pegasus and Exodus expansions.

      Cool! I hadn't heard about it. I'd want to see the reviews first though. :)
