      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

a nice comeback in Exodus expansion

5 posts in this topic

Hi,

I would like to share a tactic we applied as human players last night while playing Exodus expansion with Cylon fleet game board (Option 2), and I wonder about your comments about the talk we made, if it was still a valid play.

Characters in game order : Laura Roslin, Helo (Admiral), Felix Gaeta, Cally Tyrol (President), and Lee Adama (Cag)

We had resources around Fuel (4), Food(6), Morale(5), Population (7)

Laura Roslin was revealed cylon and rest four players were pretty human players, that we did not have any suspect, so we believed the other Cylon Loyalty card was out of the board at that time. We traveled 4 unit in 2 jumps and it was the time that we advanced for 3rd jump which came from a Crisis Card. It was crisis card of Helo's turn. He was also the admiral that he had to choose the destination card. He chose 3 with an expense of 2 Fuel. But there was another sentence following up, asking to draw a civilian ship and destroy it. unfortunately it was again 1 Fuel and 1 Population.

resources around Fuel (1), Food(6), Morale(5), Population (6)

We thought the game has ended because we did not have any Raptors (we lost 2 of them when we risked to gain Fuel with Tactics 6 skill card, well as you would guess, we draw 1 with the dice :)).  and with next jump, even we would need 1 unit, we would always loose 1 fuel, and no option to gain Fuel without risking a raptor which we did not have.

when we all lighted our cigarettes, we started a discussion away from the board. blaming each other, etc.. Friend of mine said we could have chance, if Tom Zarek was in the game. Because he has once per game action, that in expense of 1 population he may increase one of the resources... and if one of the next jump destination choices is 1 unit losing just 1 Fuel would let us win.

then after seconds, an idea just popped into my mind : I was the next player as Felix Gaeta.. I asked let's continue the game, I will give an executive order to Cally and ask her to execute me, which is once per game action of Cally (well she trusts me to do so :)). Then as I am human player, we will loose 1 morale, and I will choose Tom Zarek to come back but we have 50-50 chance with loyalty cards : adding one loyalty card to the left loyaly card deck, one of which is You are Cylon card (we were sure :))

We got lucky (i guess first time in the game). I drew You are not cylon card from the deck. next time when i was given chance of action, i increased the fuel to 2, and also at next jump admiral was able to choose destination of 1 which we lost 1 fuel, which lowered fuel to 1 again. Then we won a couple of skill checks in Crisis cards, as there are 4 human players against one Cylon. We didn't let Crisis cards to lower the Fuel, and also Cylon couldn't find a chance to deplete it fully and we made the final jump.

So we used like a Cylon feature, Resurrection :) killing Felix Gaeta and coming back as Tom Zarek to increase fuel :) and we used Cally's once per game action not to execute possible Cylon but executing a known human.

by accepting this play and winning as a human player :), once again, I felt for this game.

would you still do it? do you think this was a valid play?

Totally valid, well done.

 

(For the record, a jump to Ragnar Anchorage (edit: or a Legendary Discovery?) wouldn't have cost any fuel, but with no raptors for scouting, that's a hell of a longshot)

Thanks for your comments.

 

@subochre, I will inform friends about those cards ( but i must say first four cards were not one of them). it will give us hope next time

 

@Rullys, I suggest to start with only Option 2 when you get Exodus expansion. It is much easier to set up and start immediately. and I hope to get my Daybreak soon :)

Pretty crazy odds.  I am not sure I would have even thought of the option!   Your only possible "invalid" part is if your off table talk did not include the whole group (including the Cylon).  No private conversations... though I can't see how that plan as a "public" one would have helped the cylon...  you went for a high risk now choice option and did it!
