Outstanding game, even if you do not like the seri

on 3/12/2009

This game is easily one of the best and original board games ever put together. Basically, you start out all as human players taking the role of one of the major characters on the show. Everyone works together to fend off attacks by the evil robotic race, the Cylons. Each character has a certain set of skills to help out in the various attacks and crisis events that pop up during each person's turn. But here's the catch... one or more players (depending on the amount of people playing) is actually a Cylon in disguise. At the beginning of the game and halfway through, everyone is dealt "Loyalty cards" which tells you if you are a Cylon or not. If so, it is your mission to sabotage the rest of the players before being found out. Even after you are found out, you still work against them, but now in a more direct way. Overall, the game can be picked up by new players very quickly (two or three turns). The rulebook is quite long for a board game, but it is a pretty easy read. The game company's website also has a forum that has many helpful users willing to help out with any questions. No game will ever play out the same. From beginning to end, the game is always suspenseful but in different ways. In the beginning, everyone is wondering who the Cylon is. Nearing the end of the game, the suspense gets greater as the humans will be hanging on by a thread as they attempt to win the game. The one drawback to the game is the length. Games will always range from 2.5 to 4 hours depending on how experienced the players are.

Product Overview

Based on the epic and widely-acclaimed new Sci Fi Channel series, Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game is an exciting game of mistrust, intrigue, and the struggle for survival. In the Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game, players play one of ten of their favorite characters from the show, each with their own unique abilities and weaknesses, and must all work together in order for humanity to have any hope of survival. However, one or more players in every game secretly side with the Cylons, and players must attempt to expose the traitor while fuel shortages, food contaminations, and political unrest threaten to tear the fleet apart! The game comes complete with 10 character cards, 32 highly-detailed plastic ships, high-quality card board tokens, hundreds of cards, and a game board with resource counters.
