@Martin – The BSG game lasted for 3 hours. The players were: Kat (Pilot), Gaeta (Military), Romo Lampkin (myself, Political) and Cally (Support). I think next time with a similar setup, I would replace the attack cards with the Cylon Fleet board from Exodus. The Crisis cards stack is huge with all the expansions!

@ Mat – thanks for the summary! I cannot wait to add Earth to the equation! You didn’t say how long the game lasted! 😀

@Martin – The BSG game was very interesting. We used only the main components from each expansion, plus the Search for Home module from Daybreak with Earth as the Destination (so no New Caprica nor any modules from Exodus). There were 4 players, so 1 Cylon and 1 Mutineer (Daybreak introduces the Mutineer option, which replaces the Sympathizer from the base game). The Human players won with the lowest resource (fuel) at 3. All resources were in the red. The Search for Home option is very cool, with risky missions that can swing things dramatically. The Human players were lucky to pull only one attack card from the Crisis deck and near the end of the game, as the Cylon player was the sole pilot and declared early.

But commenting on the news about the Walking Dead which is a topic above …

Love Walking Dead, but I thought the first game that somewhat too simple.

Does this time given a systematic improved in this version of the Walking Dead board game?

R9E on Friday night, and a little of everything on Saturday, including Hex Hex (still missing from the database here) and my first game of Legendary. Also been playing the iOS version of Pandemic on my iPad — this is another game missing from the library.

I had a great day of gaming on Saturday, including Mascarade, Eminent Domain, my first ever play of Village, a few manic games of Escape: The Curse of the Temple, and finishing off with a few games of Rumis. All good stuff there. 🙂

Sentinels. Always Sentinels. I’d like to try out Mice and Mystics, but time is tight this weekend. Maybe next week.
