Off-Topic: They Should Call It Battlefun Galacticawesome

I played my third game of Battlestar Galactica today (all three times were with the Pegasus expansion). I was again a human and successfully outed one of the two Cyclons. I, of course, credit my admiraling skills with our escape from New Caprica.

My only regret is that I did not get to send Ben (my gaming nemesis, who I am destined to decapitate one day to absorb his power, as there can be only one) to the brig. He was actually human this time, which was unfortunate. I did, however, strand him on New Caprica to be executed by the Cylons while we made our getaway. That felt good.

I don't think I ever want to be a Cylon, even though I believe the math of the game is 80-20 against the humans. Hunting down the Cylons and deducing their identities is just too fun.

This is a flat-out fantastic game (except for the die-rolling). I've never been so thematically engrossed by anything else. Yes, I'm a fan of the show, but I don't get into the theme of other licensed games which I enjoy.

You should play this game.

  1. Really, you liked it? I found it a little tedious. Then again, I've never played as a human (and I've never seen the show, either).
