Welcome to BSG 256 - Overflow

"We're way past the red line..."


We can officially no longer represent the number of PBF games on this forum in 8 bits! And that doesn't even count the restarts, variants, experimental games etc... Amazing!

This will be a 6-player Base Game travelling to Kobol. This game will use standard base game rules, except that we may use the official No-Sympathizer variant by player vote.

This game wouldn't be possible without the efforts of several members of the community, most notably Orphius, who built the modding tools I'll be using, and of course ColtsFan76, who started this whole crazy PBF phenomenon here on BGG in the first place.


General Rules about this PBF
d10-1 Please begin each post with a banner or image of your character. This makes it easier for me, your fellow players, and anyone else who may want to follow this game to figure out who is saying what. Character images are located here: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/678577/map-to-gerrys-bsg...

d10-2 Public COs are not permitted.
Please do not post any actions out of turn. If you wish to speed up the game, you can always send me a CO by geekmail.

d10-3 Do not quote or link to other posts that happened more than a page ago, but use your own words to describe what you think happened. In fact, don't even look at posts more than one page back - try to limit any card-counting you might do to your own memory.

d10-4 Role-playing, including funny or thematic posts and pictures, is encouraged and awesome. Just remember to use italics when speaking in-character.

d10-5 Please try to check in at least once per day, preferably more. Allowance will be given for weekends, but failing to check in daily really slows down the game for everyone. If you know you will be gone, please inform the group so we don’t have to worry that you’ve disappeared.


The fine print. Read if this is your first BSG PBF game. Skim if it isn’t.
Post typography
* Normal text for discussions, etc
* Italics for flavour text/fluff - love reading it, keeps the game fun and interesting.
* Bold for in-game moves and actions. I won't process any decisions/actions unless bolded in the thread.

Images
Avatars change, images don't. Images can be found here. Please use an image or banner for all of your posts (especially in-character).

- Rules & Regulations for the PBF games apply.
- To make things easier on myself, I will refer to all players by your character name.
- For game speed, CO’s are a great way to keep things moving along.
- I will not wait for you to use your OncePerGame unless you say so, and if you’re going to interrupt in favor of the Cylons then please leave a CO beforehand, since I’m not going to check specifically for this every time there’s an attack.

Thanks, Ripshawd, I stole most of this from you...


Invites will go out once BSG 255 is sorted, shouldn't be too long now.

I think BSG 255 is far enough along that I can at least send out the first batch of invites:

Mike_Bonn - ACCEPTED!
CMurphy3639 - ACCEPTED!
lolcese - ACCEPTED!
markino - ACCEPTED!
theloneamigo
seiyaaa - ACCEPTED!

I notice there are a few Asia/Pacific-based players on this list, which may be why they were bypassed for the other game. The time difference doesn't bother me, as long as everyone checks in often and leaves COs to keep the game moving!

I find it crazy that the first game I played was the first one, and the last game I played was 169. So many games in between!

I'm in if you don't mind the time difference.

Looks like we're waiting on one more player... theloneamigo, true to his name, has so far remained in solitude. He hasn't logged in for a couple of weeks but I'll give him 12 more hours or so to give him a fair shot at getting into the game. In case he doesn't respond, Downey has accepted an invite as an alternate.

Since we've pretty much got our crew, why don't you guys go ahead and let me know whether you prefer to play with the standard Sympathizer, or using the official No-Sympathizer variant from FFG. Post your preference here or send me a geekmail.

I never played with the No-Sympathizer variant, but I'm OK with any choice.

As far as the symp goes, I'm ok with both variants. I haven't played that many games with 6 so I don't have an opinion about it yet.

@seiyaaa: It'll be an honour to be in the same crew! Long live BSG PBF!!

Downey is IN as player #6

I have one geekmailed vote for No Sympathizer, and markino has "NS" listed in his preferences, and no one else seems to care... so we'll go ahead and make this a No Sympathizer game.

For the uninitiated, the No Sympathizer rules can be found here. The highlights are:

- Loyalty deck consists of 2 "You Are a Cylon" cards, the rest are "You Are Not a Cylon" cards.
- Starting resources are: 8 Fuel, 7 Food, 9 Morale, 10 Population
- Revealed Cylons draw 3 skill cards on their turn

Note that Boomer will be allowed as a character selection.

Mike_Bonn chooses


lolcese chooses
even though his selection wasn't bolded. I'm fairly sure that's what he wanted though. From now on, make sure any official instructions for me are bolded.


By CO, CMurphy3639 chooses


seiyaaa, you're up, and once again it's a wide-open field.

Edit: wrong banner for Zarek, let me track down the right one...
Edit2: that's better

Yep, not a problem... you may also want to wait to see your loyalty card, too. I'm just making sure everyone knows the option is there if you already know what you're going to draw.

Starbuck draws 2 Tactics and 1 Piloting.

Apparently there is an 8-bit theme to this game so far?
