BSG Report: Game 5

Players: Ryan (Baltar), Jason (Adama), James (Apollo), Jack (Helo)

I'll never forget this game!  I had such a fun time as Cylon Baltar from the start of the game.  I had all three human players second guessing each other and totally unsure of who was the Cylon.  I sabotaged two skill checks early on to let them know there was a Cylon among us, but did all I could publicly to reduce my suspicion.  My grand master plan came to fruition as I convinced the group to send Jason to the brig on my turn, then have Jason himself use Executive Orders on me to look at Jack's Loyalty Card.  The look on his face was PRICELESS when I disgustedly put his card back on the table and said "Well, we've got our Cylon."  His face was utterly shocked and yet he was smiling because I was clearly lying AND essentially revealed myself to him.  After another five minutes of outright lying and trying to convince Jason and James that Jack was the Cylon, I used the other action of my Executive Orders to reveal and damage the ship in two places.  It was delicious and I don't think Jason will ever trust me in BSG again!  This was the second or third time I've been the Cylon and totally burned him.

The game came down to the wire, but I used the "Inbound Nukes" Super Crisis Card to reduce one of the human resources to zero before they could jump for the win.

  1. Poland BSG Game 1 report- instructions "mostly" read by one player, two younger players begging to be allowed to play, and two adults waiting to be told how to play. No cylons detected yet.
