  1. ...And having five players is much better.
  2. I don't know about other people, but there is a really high level of attrition from viewing something online to saving it to my computer, to printing it out, to actually playing it. If I were to guess some numbers, it'd put the odds of me continuing to the next part of each stage to be very roughly about 1:3. So, I'll estimate that I'll view roughly 250 items for every one that I actually use. Player aids are the most likely to make it through this process. New Heralds and other expansions like that are probably the least likely. This isn't because they aren't interesting or well designed. It's because the because I play AH only a few times a year. Hopefully I'll check a chance to try Tibs' custom investigators this year. I printed them out last year...
  3. a.) As long as there is a 1-distance jump card played, you can reveal that personal goal. It doesn't have to be played immediately after the jump is resolved. b.) The person goal loyalty card isn't discarded; it is just revealed. As a result, it cannot be shuffled into the deck or redrawn.
  4. Sounds neat and I'd be interested if I was attending, but unfortunately I am not. For the Cylon minor loss, would having two difference resources at 1 count?
  5. The crisis card is a typo. Check page 4 of the FAQ. It should read "must" instead of "may". http://www.fantasyflightgames.com/ffg_content/Battlestar_Galactica/bsg_FAQ_1-1-3-new.pdf
  6. Nevermind. I guess I've been playing it wrong. That seems like a silly rule.
  7. I disagree. If the basestar is damaged and can't launch raiders or shoot when its activated, nothing happens on the main game board so the cylon pursuit track should be advanced. Page 12: However, when the rules indicate that “nothing happens,” resolve the activation according to the following rules…

I like Roslin's draw two, pick one. It greatly increases your chances of getting jump prep or avoiding a nasty cylon activation.
  9. Find two more people. The game is so much better with 5 players.

  11. So you should apologize for your vague wording and re-write it. Because it seems that two people online, and the person who drew the card all interpreted it as you had written instead of how you had intended.
  12. Garoth said: Anacreon said: New Baltar is hard to judge without knowing what the new Miracle tokens are about, but he definitely gets a nice makeover here and, as before, gets to play a potentially awesome and novel role in the game. If I got it right the Miracle Tokens are basicly "once per game" ability tokens, used as markers if you have used your OPG-ability or not. And there would be new game effects for losing your token without using your OPG-ability, or regaining your token after you used your OPG-ablity. That makes the new Baltar very interesting character, as he give back and take away those Miracle Tokens. I interpreted the miracle tokens the same way. Baltar's ability seems kind of lame. It seems like he's be better off comboing with Cain. Have someone scount the destination deck. Then have her use her overpowered Blind Jump. Give her a miracle token and repeat.
  13. Highest is a soft and vague word. It doesn't have a very precise definition and isn't used in mathematics so we can't rely on a mathematical definition of it. If you want to go by common useage of the word, there is a list of the highest mountains: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_highest_mountains So, in common English usage we see that there can be multiple highest. Now whether or not you want to get up on the article 'the', 'the' doesn't imply singularity. e.g. "I'm going to bring the board games." What about the fact that resource is singular? Maybe that implies that there can only be one highest. Well, I'd say that's only singular because it's matching the "Morale" resource which is singular. I stated that 8 would be the highest because of the reasons I stated in my previous post. If they wanted it to be exclusive, they could have added that one word. If the FAQ states that it has to be exclusive, then the card wasn't clear and now we know what it actually means. As far as your claim that someone might respond "There is no highest," I'll simply point out that person might just be wrong. When posed if your question, I imagine that if I respond that they're all the highest each time. Asked the question and provided that there is no highest, then I'd probably answer, "kinda" or not put too much effort in correcting you because in a vacuum of context, you wouldn't be that wrong and I deal with too many people who are wrong about too many things to stop and correct every single one of them. However, I truly believe that they're all the highest and the reason I'll give is that if I were to do something code up like max([8,8,8,8]), it would return an 8, not a [ ], or NaN. That's a reflection of my education, experience, and bias. If you want to argue for the sake of arguing, you could say that if morale was at 8 and fuel was at 7, then fuel is the highest because it's at 87.5% of its starting value of 8 and morale is at 70% of its starting value of 10. The only true way to compare them would be in terms of percentage of starting value because you can't compare units of fuel to units of morale. What if they're on the metric system and I use imperial units. As long as you and your fellow gamers are enjoying yourselves, I'm not going to stop you.
  14. I would consider both cases sucessful. The agenda could have said "higher than all other resources" or "exclusively the highest resource". In your 8/8/8/8 example, I'd consider morale to be both the highest and lowest resource, but since they don't mentioned anything about lowest that doesn't matter.
