This is the 180th Play-By-Forum Battlestar Galactica game. It will follow the format established by ColtsFan76. It is a 5-player, European timezone, Base Game.

This game is by invite only. The waiting list is being maintained at the BSG PBF Wiki.

The players are:
Bexarath
Garou
Hannibal Rex
elcidthehero
cmdrc


The rules of the game are pretty much as in all the other threads. If this is your first BSG PBF game, please read through at least one of the previous games to get a feeling for how it is done.

Some particular notes for those taking part (you can find more notes and tips on nbergom's geeklist Tips and Tricks of BSG PBF):

1) SUBSCRIBE TO THIS THREAD. And please, login at least once a day, preferably more.

2) All players must have their own copies of the game as I am only going to publish card titles (this is an FFG request).

3) Private communication will be by geekmail between me and particular players, all other communication will be by posting in this thread. Please start your geekmail subject line with "BSG 180" and your character name.

4) To speed up the game, please use Conditional Orders (i.e., geekmail me what you will do if certain circumstances arise). CO's are particularly useful for interrupts, such as Evasive Maneuvers. I will not wait for rare occurrences (e.g., a player using a Strategic Planning on a basestar attack or a viper attacking a raider, or a player using his OPG) unless I have received a CO to that end, or if I feel that discussions in the thread warrant it. I will not ask for Strategic Plannings on scouting rolls as long as there are still at least two raptors available. Note that I prefer not to get "public CO's" until all Cylons are known.

5) Please use the following posting conventions:
* Normal text for discussions.
* Italics for flavor texts.
* Bold for in-game moves and actions. I won't process any decisions/actions unless bolded in the thread or I receive them in geekmail.
Please do not post any spoilers for the television series in the thread.

6) There is no need to change your avatar to match your character. However, I would like you to make clear in each post who your character is by posting a banner at the top of your post. Great banners created by DukeOfEarl are available here (use the "medium" option to display them). If you find using a banner is too much of a hassle (or you are on your phone), at least list your character name in bold at the top of your post.

For flavor, a useful selection of character pictures is hosted on this geeklist by GerryRailBaron, though by all means provide your own if you wish.

My thanks to Orphius, whose spreadsheets I am using to mod this game.

My previous moderated games are:
BSG 101 - Mockingbird
BSG 123 - Blue Dragon
BSG 146 - Wake Up and Smell the Tylium
BSG 153 - Idus Martii

Obviously, the name of this game is derived from the game of Darts, in which the cry "ONE hun-dred and EIGHty" is often heard.

In.

Thanks for running the game, Pieter!

This'll be my first BSG PBF, but I've got a few PBFs of Fury of Dracula under my belt, (as our mod knows,) so I'm not new to the format.

I'd prefer to play the Chief in this game, if he's still available when it's my turn.

Welcome. Yeah, I haven't played PBF FoD for a while now, because (a) I find it hard to concentrate on two PBF games at once, and (b) I like BSG in the PBF format much more than I like FoD. Roleplaying works much better with BSG.

Well, I won't necessarily RP my character to be like in the show, (which I'm not actually a fan of,) but I certainly understand the sentiment.

BSG is quite a bit more complex, rules-wise as well as in character interaction.

I'm looking forward to it.

Heh, I usually use the character in the show as a starting point, but then I diverge wildly in my roleplaying. That's all fine. No roleplaying is fine too. As long as you have fun.

Welcome all. I don't think we will start the game today, as it is Sunday and during the weekends usually people are slow in checking BGG. But we'll see what happens.

I haven't heard from Garou or one of the alternates yet. I know Garou, he's a good player and I have been in several games with him. But he gave a preference for an Exodus game, so he might decline anyway. So, I'll wait until about 12 o'clock Monday morning. If by that time Garou has told us he joins, we start. If not, but one of the alternates says he joins, again, we start. And if no-one has accepted by then, I will invite more alternates.

See you tomorrow.

Excellent! Then the game can start.

Cruniac, it seems we do not need you at this time. Thanks for offering to step in, and I hope you get into a game soon. Should not take long.

Determination of player order; highest is first:

Garou - 1d100 = (35) = 35
Bexarath - 1d100 = (58) = 58
Hannibal Rex - 1d100 = (22) = 22
elcidthehero - 1d100 = (20) = 20
cmdrc - 1d100 = (4) = 4

So, player order is:

1. Bexarath
2. Garou
3. Hannibal Rex
4. elcidthehero
5. cmdrc

Bexarath, you are up first. Whom are you going to be?

The others can leave CO's for their choices if they want.

Yay!

Hmmm... tough call. My first thoughts going into this was Chief, but since Klaus expressed that wish, I think I'll choose Tom Zarek.

Thanks, Fredrik!

And I hope you'll all enjoy this game at least half as much as I will!

Heh, after Zarek was picked and I knew that Chief was going to be picked, I made predictions on which characters the others would take. I predicted Boomer correctly! Now let's see if I am right on the Military character that elcidthehero will take, and (much harder) which of the remaining characters will go to cmdrc.

You can give a CO by GM, e.g.: "I will pick XXX, unless he is picked by elcidthehero, then I will pick YYY."

Interesting... I was going to go for Adama, but then changed my mind just before I sent my choice.
