I've never played the regular BSG game, but I have to say that this lighter version of it was very enjoyable. I like the dice mechanics and all of the suspicion as to who the Cylons are. Very fun!

09-08-2015. Rated after 2 plays.
I like Battlestar Galactica a lot, in a tight game w/o expansions. Then, BSG is managable, but still takes a long time. Just like in BSG, in Dark Moon there are loyal people and traitors (here infected).

BSG express was developed to trim the game down further. In it, the cards from BSG are replaced with dice. However, the dice are bad.. 2/3 chance on negative numbers. Each player gets a set of dice to assign during their turn. In their turn, they first collect up to their limit (usually 4) dice from the common supply. Red dice are 'weak', with lower positive numbers. The black dice are 'strong', and have higher positive numbers. Then, they can try to perform a repair, work on a task or give someone else two actions.
If you repair you roll 3 of your dice in secret (hidden behind your player screen) and assign one die publically. If it's positive you succeed. It is possible to lie, so if you're a traitor.. you'd ignore the success and put forth a negative number.

Then, you have to face an event, which come in two versions. Tasks in which the group collectively has to come up with a certain value of rolled dice results. If you manage, you pass and the tasks you aim to complete are one step closer to completion. If you fail, bad stuff happens. If a player passes in this part of the game they get to retrieve two dice from the supply.

I really liked Dark Moon. It's good, it's quick. I am very much impressed with this design. The theme is lacking a little. You notice the BSG tension w/o the flavor and theme. the Thing is an ok theme, but this game should STILL be BSG express.

Pretty good - for me, i would pick this to play over the full thing (mainly as it was a lot quicker and i always felt more involved)

August '13: Not fair to rate after only one play. I enjoyed it, but I suspect it'd be much better if I'd play Battlestar Gallactica at least once. Ha, ha.
