      Upcoming Changes to the Fantasy Flight Games Forums   01/20/2017

      Hello Fantasy Flight Games forum community!   This week, we will be making some important changes to your Fantasy Flight Games community account and the way that you log into the Fantasy Flight Games community forums and web store.   We have been working hard to integrate with the rest of the Asmodee group, and we are happy to announce a unified way to access all the websites and apps made by Fantasy Flight Games, Days of Wonder, and Asmodee!   For most users, nothing will change: you will still log into the Fantasy Flight Games forums using your current login name and password. Only the login user interface will be new.   For a few users, your credentials might be slightly changed. For example, this could happen to users who have both a Fantasy Flight Games and Days of Wonder account, or in the case of conflicting login names across platforms. When these situations occur, special e-mails will be sent to those users with an easy explanation about those changes and what steps to take next. For any of you receiving those e-mails, please make sure to follow the instructions carefully.   Remember, official communications from Fantasy Flight Games or Asmodee.Net will never ask for your password.   What are the benefits for you as a player? Using a unified account to access all of our web services and apps makes your life simpler. Over time, you will see new features emerging, such as keeping all of your friends under a single account, finding friends easily in apps with online play, or developing your personal profile by adding to your board games collection. These are just some of the features that you will see during the next year, once this important technical step is complete.   Important note: The migration of the forums to our new system will take place on Tuesday, January 24th. The forums will be offline for about two hours during that time. Once the migration is complete, older forum posts may look strange for up to 24 hours as we rebuild them in our new system.   We can’t wait to connect our board game communities and build bridges between universes, game systems, players, events, groups, game clubs, and more! This is only the first step in bringing people and games closer together. For more information, read our FAQ at https://asmodee.helpshift.com/a/asmodee-net/.   Best regards,   The Fantasy Flight Games Team

Cylon Attack Card Ratio with all Expansions

6 posts in this topic

The way I understand it, when using elements of all 3 expansions players must use all crisis cards, destination cards, skill cards, quorum cards, etc together. They can't pick and choose some of these. 

But with a crisis deck made up of the cards from all 3 expansions and the core game, there are very few cylon attack cards. So if you're not using the cylon fleet option from Exodus, chances are you could go a whole game with no cylon attack crisis cards, which makes for a game light on combat.

That may be preferable for humans, but am I doing something wrong? It just feels a little like cheating. If its intended then that's okay. There's always the cylon fleet option if we just feel like more combat.

I think this was 'fixed' but only if you use All 4 expansions. The base game attach card frequency did get diluted noticeably with pegasus and exodus butdaybreak had a flood of attack cards (some of which were quite nasty) to rebalance the frequency.

Obviously if you use base game plus daybreak things may be tougher.

If you're worried maybe pick a ratio close to the base game frequency and explicitly build a crisis deck of around 100 cards with that ratio at random and make sure it gets a very good shuffle :)

Cheers! Daybreak did add a lot more, but we still find they don't come up at all most games.

Are you allowed to pick and choose crisis cards to add to the deck like that? Or would you recommend that as a home rules, thing? :)

We finally went the Cylon Fleet and CAC combined in a four expansion game, and still ended up drawing about four straight attacks. Bax shuffle job, I blame the Cylon.

When there are a lot of CACs around you really want someone to pick Laura or new helo... also Dee is good to have around to facilitate 'just hiding the civilians from the cylons till you can jump out of there
