Welcome to the Battlestar Galactica play-by-forum game "Broken Toast".

I will be your host.

This will be a Base game with 5 players.

Players are expected to be familiar with all the rules of Battlestar Galactica, especially the rules of secrecy regarding cards. Each player also needs a copy of the game, because I am only allowed to reveal card names, not texts.

Players are allowed to post game discussions and tactics discussions in normal text like this.
Italics are used for roleplaying and flavor, which often adds good ambience and fun to the games.
Bold text is used for orders. Examples of orders are moves, card plays, actions, attacks, and other things. I will not take an action for your character unless posted in bold.

I will ask that players not geekmail/email each other to discuss game tactics in order to keep knowledge from other players. The nature of the game is that all table discussion is heard by all players. That being said, it is allowable to geekmail certain instructions to me rather than posting (like playing Investigative Committee or Strategic Planning). Conditional orders, in order to speed up gameplay, are also acceptable and greatly encouraged. I will expect all players to keep on top of their Once-per-game ability. I will not prompt for these, so if you believe you may use it, post it or send me a conditional order.

For skill checks, I will post an interrupt chart regarding possible Investigative Committee or Scientific Research plays. For die rolls, I ask that if a player would like to wait for a possible Strategic Planning card, that they mention this in their post. The game will go too slowly if we post an interrupt for every single die roll. Obviously, it would be good to send a conditional order if you would like a Strategic Planning card to be used for a viper attack or cylon ship attacks. Please check ahead to see what will likely be occuring and stay on top of it, as I will not backtrack. (I will backtrack if I make a mistake but I will not backtrack due to someone else's mistake.) Generally I will not wait for Evasive Maneuvers...pilots please send in COs for that (you should know when the raiders are coming...)

Please try to check the board at least once or twice a day so that we can get through people's turns in good time. My timezone is US Eastern (GMT-5).

Please identify your character frequently. There is a great list of images to use here: Battlestar Galactica - Online BGG Game - Photo Gallery / Avatars

When posting a skill card play, please use color codes with lowercase color (Ex: color=purple instead of COLOR=#990099) as these are the color codes I will be using on all my posts. This will make it easier to follow for everyone.
Politics code orange (yellow is too difficult to see)
Leadership code green
Tactics code purple
Piloting code red
Engineering code blue
I will send card draws and hand reminders via geekmail. Players are, of course, urged to keep track of their hands.

All die rolls will be handled by the BGG forum die rolling tool and will be visible in each post.
Most of all, have fun.

Re: BSG 212 - Broken Toast


Okay, let's get this show underway. geddoe, JackBurden, Bexarath, tuathail and tipbruley are in.

Rolling randomly to determine player order:

geddoe 1d100 = (34) = 34
JackBurden 1d100 = (35) = 35
Bexarath 1d100 = (46) = 46
tuathail 1d100 = (47) = 47
tipbruley 1d100 = (9) = 9


So the player order is:

tuathail - Gaius Baltar
Bexarath - Kara "Starbuck" Thrace
JackBurden - William Adama
geddoe - "Chief" Galen Tyrol
tipbruley - Lee "Apollo" Adama

tuathail, you are first to select a character. Others may send COs for character choice, and/or starting card draw. This is the only time public COs are allowed.

Hi everyone.

I haven't played him in a while now, so I'm going to choose Gaius Baltar.

Re: BSG 212 - Broken Toast
I've never really played a pilot, so I'll go with Kara "Starbuck" Thrace.



For my starting hand, I'll take 2 Tactics and 1 Leadership.

Unfortunately, Chief's skill set only allows for 1 Politics to be drawn, you'll have to change your starting draw.

1 Leadership
1 Engineering




Loyalties and card draws are on their way, Baltar can post his turn when ready.

Re: BSG 212 - Broken Toast

I think we can all agree that at a time like this it's important to let the military take care of military matters without .... well, what I mean is .... If you need me, let me know, I'll just be leaving here now.

Discard 1 - Repair to move to Presidents Office.
Activate Presidents office, wait for Quorum card

Re: BSG 212 - Broken Toast




Dr. Baltar was busy holding teleconferences in his office and didn't even notice someone walking right up to his desk with bombs strapped to his body.

"How the frak do people get in here so easily?" Baltar shouts.


Crisis: Terrorist Bomber
Baltar may draw a card for Delusional Intuition.

This is ridiculous. I have important work that needs to be done here. Vital to the smooth governance of this fleet, and someone let's this madman with a bomb on to the ship.
Where was security? I want this investigated.

Also, Draw Leadership
For the skill check itself, I can't do much (until I see what that new card is), but we have a lot of the right colours between us and I think we should try to pass it as it's never a good time to lose morale.

Re: BSG 212 - Broken Toast


No question, we should definitely try to pass it. Should be fairly easy, too. Chief and Apollo, how much can you help?

Re: BSG 212 - Broken Toast


Baltar pushes a button behind his desk. After a few agonizing seconds, he gets an answer. "This is Saul Tigh."
"Tigh, I need help here!" Baltar shouts.
"What seems to be the problem?" Tigh slurs.
"There's a guy with a bomb here!"
"Oh...okay. I'll deal with it."
"Tigh, have you been drinking?"
"Uh...yes?"
Baltar shakes his head. "Just deal with it..."
