Game Profile: Battlestar Galactica

A sci-fi game of politics, betrayal, and survival.

Mechanics Hand Management, Cooperative
Theme Space Fantasy
Publication Fantasy Flight, 2008
Ages 10+
Time 180
Players 3 - 6

In Battlestar Galactica, the humans must battle for survival against the Cylons. Players band together in this collaborative game. Each player takes on a character role from the TV series. Each character has a unique set of abilities including tactics, leadership, politics, engineering and piloting. Choosing the right mix of skills at the start of the game is critical to success. The board and the deck of crisis cards take on the role of the Cylons.

As if the Cylons needed help, the game can have human spies selected at random to secretly aid their quest to vanquish the humans.

It will take good planning, adept cooperation and a little luck with the dice rolls to get through the 3rd space jump necessary to win. The Cylons need to run the humans out of any one of the following: fuel, food, morale, or population to win.

We have an open copy of Battlestar Galactica available in our Demo Game Library for you to come in and try.
