Battlestar Galactica

Andy, Mike, Phil, Bruce and Darryl played original Battlestar. In the first round mike was a cylon but kept this quiet. Phil got to confirm the Admiral was human. The fleet jumped and all was quiet and morale was high as Phil the President gave rousing speeches.

Every thing changed after the sleeper phase. As soon as he could Phil used balthar’s cylon detector on andy’s boomer discovering their cylon nature. as president phil thought he could then brig boomer before she could react but mike cunningly used his power to declare martial law and tranferred the presidency to admiral bruce.

Next, though Phil was able to convince bruce to brig boomer on their next go andy was able to persuade the others to release boomer! Soon the Fleet was surrounded by hostiles. Phil knew that both Andy and Mike were cylons but the other players remained unconvinced. Phil tried to brig Mike and he returned the favour, both were unsuccesful.

As the fleet neared the end of their journey, morale, food and especially fuel were falling rapidly, all being in the red. Phil was able to brig Mike just in time. Then Andy saw his opportunity as a nasty crisis card turned up he used boomer’s power to force a fail crashing the morale to two. Both cylons were in the brig now so each transferred to the resurection ship. However the three remaining humans were able to keep the fleet moving rapidly towards Kobol. With just two morale and three fuel they made the final jump! With ten population the surviving fleet was in a good condition. Victory for the humans.
