BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: EXODUS EXPANSION
I like the few extra characters just to round out the cast. The alternate battle board looks interesting.

Cylon Fleet Board fixes the main problem of the base game - clumped CACs won't matter any more!
Conflicted Loyalties makes it slightly easier for cylons to hide
Ionian Nebula brings all sort of minor characters out to play
skill check abilities on skill cards are brilliant

Final Five loyalty cards are kind of odd - there are few situations where someone can look at your loyalty (which is the only time when they trigger), and you have next to no control over whose loyalty will be checked
CFB can be gamed if you're so inclined (here's a suggestion - don't!)
CFB makes the cylons far more likely to achieve a damage victory and far less likely to achieve any other kind, and in general makes the game too focused on the space battle
player elimination is seriously uncool in a 3+ hour game

9 of the logged plays have used my copy of the game.

Score based on my rating for the base game plus my average of the rating of all the expansion's qualities.

Cylon Fleet Board. A bit more fiddly, but keeps the pressure on. Makes playing as a revealed Cylon more interesting. Can Seamlessly add the new characters. The personal goals aren't all that fun, but I do enjoy the final five cards.

Ion Nebula has some bizarre complications.

This is my favourite boardgame. With a traitor mechanism that fosters mistrust and suspicion amongst players, some of which are trying to work together, this game is wonderful in its semi-cooperative nature and the tension in creates in the fight not just against the game but also those trying to destroy you from within. That it well replicates the TV series is an added bonus.

Despite a sense of continuing despair and doom as resources ever dwindle, the game is never over as the humans persevere to snatch victory and the cylons look for the final blow. Human wins are always close and cheered, cylon wins never produce disgust at the game time wasted but with anticipation about how to next defeat the toasters.

Despite the numerous things that can be done in a turn and the various rules that govern the various aspects of the game, they are individually actually not too complex and with repeated plays, can be relatively straightforwardly learnt.

Obviously with my obsessive stats that I keep, I adore this game!

All stats include expansions
Overall wins: 31/61 (51%)
As human: 19/43 (44%)
As cylon: 12/18 (67%)

Modul szerkezetű kiegészítő, ami igazából három az egyben.

Ha úgy éreztétek az emberek már ismerik az optimális döntéseket és a feláldozható pontokat, vagy vegytisztán volt mindenki jó/rossz, akkor az "ellentétes érdekek" rész Nektek való! Egyéni célokat, és nem mindig nemeseket kapnak az emberek, amiket ha nem érnek el a játék végéig, erőforrást veszt a flotta. Ha viszont megoldják a házi feladatot, eldobják a hűségkártyát és újat húznak... aztán lehet megint találgatni, ki kivel van!

Ha keveselted a lőport és a csatározást, a "Cylon flotta" majd rendbe szed! Nincsenek inváziós krízisek, helyette egy külön táblán folyamatosan gyűlnek a hajók, és egyszer csak a nyakadra ugranak. Elugrasz? Persze, okos gondolat... ők meg rekvirálnak még hajókat és pár kör múlva többen vannak a nyakadon. Szóval CAG: Launch Vipers or we die here today!

És ha azt gondolod, hogy a Galactica elég üres, jól jönne a játékoson túl is némi intrika, akkor az "Ion csillagköd" a Te helyed. NPC-k népesítik a hajót, akik vagy alád vágnak vagy segítenek egy keveset - ezt nem tudod amíg oda nem lépsz hozzájuk, de nem is választhatod, hogy "kösz most nem hozzád jöttem"! A játék végén ráadásul ki lehet esni... nem a karakternek, hanem Neked... igen, az egész játékból! Szóval csak óvatosan a trauma tokenekkel!

BSG is amazing. Exodus took out the only glaring bad design, the shudderingly random Crisis deck that controlled a bit too much of the game, and replaced it with the thematic, strategic, clever Cylon Fleet Board. A flawless addition.

Conflicted Loyalties I will use about 60% of the time - changes strategies a bit, spices up the game without bludgeoning the existing mechanics - I like it.

Ionian Nebula - Cool concept, and great strategic choices, contributing to this expansion's 'theme' of personal benefit v the greater good, the awkwardness of the mechanics, and the way it feels like a layer added above the rest of the game that just sits there, and doesn't quite fit.

The new skill, quorum (what's up with Resignation?), Cylon, Crisis, and Super Crisis cards are all great, and always used. The characters vary - Anders I find to be laughably useless, while Tory finds her way into most games.

Really really great expansion for BSG!

Great expansion, cylon fleet nicely mitigates deviations in core game (games with only few ambushes vs unwinnable games with multitude of ambushes in a row) and gives extra options for cylons. Shifts balance towards cylons and gives back purpose for pilots which mitigates Pegasus expansion (but for balanced game you need also Pegasus then).

I like all the expansions and have taken fellow geeks' advice on playing with them in the following mix:

Base Game + Pegasus (- New Caprica) + Exodus +Cylon Fleet option (-Ionian Nebula, -Conflicted Loyalties) + Daybreak (-Search for Home Option, -Demetrius)

Even though I'm not using the Ionian Nebula or Conflicted Loyalties, there's still enough other content in here to make it worthwhile. The Cylon Fleet element is worth the cost of the game in itself. This makes for an interesting wrinkle in the game in how the Cylons chase the humans and build up their attack in the meantime.

I will caution that you can game the system by leaving one little raider on the board instead of eliminating it. We may house rule something for that next time.

Good expansion to BSG that adds good characters and the Cylon Fleet component, which I think is a much better way to handle Cylon encounters. Not a fan of the Ionian Nebula module

Cylon Fleet game board, new loyalties (the Final Five) and Ionian Nebula with allies - those elements are always present in our games and add a lot of strategy and player interactions. They make some choices less obvious (looking at people's loyalties cards can be a risk now, trauma tokens and allies make you choose between your and the Fleet's fate). Also we much rather prefer constant threat from how the ships move between boards than drawing a random Crisis with Cylon Fleet activation. After playing for a while the latter seems too easy. Overall, a really great addition!

One note for Ionian Nebula - we play with the Mood Pool variant, so there's no player elimination in game and it adds more suspicion (there is a mood pool of tokens, not one token per ally, so it's not obvious anymore who added the bad token to the common pool). That's a much better variant of the standard Nebula.

Exodus adds 4 new characters: Tory, Anders, Gaeta, Cally. 2 are really great: Tory could be the best President, some people say she's overpowered, and I wouldn't agree, but her ability to draw any 2 Skill Cards whenever a Quorum card is played is really fantastic. Just remember - there isn't always time or a good moment to play cards from her hand, and the President often discards a lot of cards. In our plays that makes her powerful, but never really overpowered. Cally is great both for Humans and Cylons, being able to execute one player at her field, her hand is varied, which is a plus and a minus (she has lots of options, but smaller chance to draw what she needs), and she also has a really decent once per turn ability. Gaeta and Anders aren't really that useful compared to other characters you have. For Anders we use a popular house rule that his OPT ability is Movement, not Action, and that fixes him being completely useless. Gaeta would be ok, has a great card draw, but his negative of adding maximum 3 cards to tests, even though not that bad, still results in no one picking him in our group ever.
