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.

So easy to teach (everyone plays Poker, right?), intuitive, light and doesn't take very long unless playing with people who manage to AP on die rolls. Not much strategy here, but for an hour of dice, better than most.

Good cooperative game, decisions are simple most of the time so there's no leader ordering syndrome, but quite a lot of exciting turns come up. A bit too dicey for a cooperative "puzzle" game for my taste though.
