BGG Battlestar Galactica PBF MetaList
- brianUnited States
About 2 months ago, I had a desire to set up and run a Play-By-Forum (PBF) game of Battlestar Galactica (BSG) here on the Geek. This was partly inspired by my own fun experience with a Pandemic PBF here and partly inspired by my like for the game that I don't play nearly enough.Recommend
Part of that vision was to show the game state after every players turn to help tell the story of what transpired. Those images would be collected in a geeklist, along with a short list of actions, for each turn. I spent some time in Photoshop getting the board as close as the real thing. I then spent even more time creating an Excel file that would support the data going into the graphic.
The first game launched at the end of March and finished in about 5 weeks. The success of that voyage (especially if you were a Cylon) prompted other games using my files. We now have 4 moderators running (or have ran) 6 games involving 38 different BGG members plus a host of commentary from a few loyal followers.
Instead of increasing the size of my links section on the game geeklist, I thought it more appropriate to gather all the games in a Meta List and track the progress here.
