Just an excellently designed game, so deep and offers so much replayability even with just the E deck. Haven't used I and K yet, but fast learning strategies, great game.

If it goes right it's the best game ever. Pity it doesn't always go right, but with a Loyalty Deck mechanic you have to take these things in stride. Annoying when you play 2 hours only to find the last half an hour is boring, though.

House rules...

Decent expansion, but again house rules are your friend with this one. Otherwise:

1. Treachery is extremely underwhelming.
2. New Caprica is horrible.
3. Cain is stupidly overpowered.
4. Cylon Leader Agendas are way too imbalanced.

But all of these (well, perhaps besides 2) can be fixed with some minor house rules, and once that is done it's certainly worth playing.

But the base game doesn't "need" this. Play your first few games without ANY Pegasus components besides the plastic basestars and you'll find it a better game.

Citadels (2000)

Gets old and random, and too long for its depth. Better with the 7 building variant.

After getting Grimoire I find this largely unneeded, since Grimoire scratches the same itch but does it faster, with less downtime, and just in a generally more fun manner.

Poor map and house cards makes the premise of the game largely a lie; diplomacy, treachery and intrigue are in fact rather limited, and skilled order placement wins the day.

Chaotic fun that can be done within 45 minutes. Great with 4 or 5 players, and everyone has a blast trying to figure out who goes first and how the spells interact with each other. Better than Citadels in that getting screwed doesn't really ruin the entire turn, also turns are faster and there's less downtime. Also I've found less AP when picking spells as opposed to the character draft.

I think this is deceptively simple, but it just doesn't do anything to try and win you over, does it?

Still, for its price, why not.

Brilliant game, dynamic, extremely unfiddly, and so many layers of strategy. I've only scratched the surface of what this has to offer and already I'm completely hooked. This is number 1 on the Geek for a damn good reason.
