Tonight our core group of 5 added a 6th to play. He is a big BSG fan, but didn't get into the game (too long for him which is somewhat understandable). So he started intentionally playing cards in the skill checks to help the cylons (even though he was a human.) I knew this b/c I was 1 cylon and knew the other, so it looked as if 3 cylons were in play. As a result, humans went into a quick tailspin and cylons (including me) won.
Im happy that I won, but I feel there should be a rule, if not already, that humans must contribute to help humanity. Otherwise they are obsecuring cylon identities, and I know its against the rules to table talk about skill cards afterwords where a human points out which cards he/she plays that would otherwise more redily identify cylons. I think its fair to say, since there is a rule that prevents humans from table talking about skill cards to make cylons life harder, there should be a rule to prevent humans from making humans life harder.
This all seems intuitive, but if you are a cylon you should play a cylon (skill checks good and bad depending) and if you are a human you should play a human (always good). Also, a person should not steer the game to end it prematurely or mess with a friend (e.g. Throw Jimmy out the airlock because its funny).
I know its just a game, but its a long one. And personally, if Im going to sit down for a few hours I want everyone to play it right.
To summarize and ask the root question, Is there a rule that states humans must always fight for the humans? (preventing people who want to leave the game and others who want to "airlock" friends for the "fun" of it)
