Hey everybody, just a quick question if anybody's able to help out.
I've got my second game of BSG organised for tomorrow night and since the first I've been out and picked up Pegasus. Now, my question is whether we can play primarily the core game, as I think we need to get used to the basics first, but incorporate the skill, Quorum and Crisis cards from Pegasus, just to add a little more variety.
From looking through the cards and the rules I think this would work, but let me know if you disagree:
We'll play the core game in every respect, but with the addition of the new skill cards (including the Reckless and Treachery card systems)
It seems that using the Treachery deck will enable us to use the new new crisis, as a number of them involve discarding skill cards and replacing them with treachery cards. I'm aware that some of the new crisis cards refer to Executions being made. Now, from comments I've read on the forums, some seem to think executions take away a little from the intrigue of who's a Cylon, as the humans can just execute a player and if they're wrong then...it doesn't seem to matter a great deal. So, I was thinking of not using execute for now, and any references to it on Crisis cards either being ignored, or the character being sent to sickbay instead.
Any advice/suggestions on whether the game would work this way? As I say, my main aim is to include the new cards for a bit of variety, particularly the skill cards as my friends commented on there only being a handful of skills per skill type. But it would be nice to have the Crisis/Quorum cards included too if possible.
Thanks in advance!
