Battlestar Galactica: Pegasus Rules Posted
After a long string of previews the rules for Battlestar Galactica Pegasus - the expansion to last year's amazing Battlestar Galactica Board Game - have been posted to the Internets. You can check them out here.
Obviously we're really excited about this game. Most interesting to us were the rules aruond jettisoning players out of airlocks (and the different aftermaths of that character if he's a cylon or a human), the addition of Scar as a new Cylon Raider character, and the interesting notion that a Cylon Leader is randomly assigned a secret card that guides them to be either sympathetic to the human cause, or pushes them to help the cylon cause. Oh those cylons and their flip floppy ways.
It was also good to see details of the New Caprica rules. In this new addition to the end game, the humans scramble to prepare civilian ships to evacuate the temporary colony, and must defend the launched ships long enough to get enough resources airborne to avoid starvation, a loss of morale, and just general extinction. Meanwhile the Cylon Players lord over the colony and attempt to throw players in jail and blow up the Galactica (when are they not) to keep the humans right where they are. It also seems interesting enough, and is quite the cool twist, but we're currently iffy on how enjoyable it'll be, or if it'll be just a tad too complicated. Sometimes sessions of BS:G go on long enough, you know? Thankfully all of the New Caprica portion of the expansion is completely optional.
Battlestar Galactica: Pegasus is slated to ship later this fall, and we'll let you know as soon as it hits shelves.
