“We have struggled since the attacks... trying to rely on one another. Our strength and our only hope as a people, is to remain undivided. We haven't always done all we could to insure that.”
- William Adama
Exodus, the latest expansion for Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game, is now on sale! Visit your local retailer or our webstore to pick up your copy today and save the remnants of humanity from the Cylon menace!
With three new options to add to your game, Exodus is a great way to expand on the accusations and mistrust that run rampant in Battlestar Galactica.
You can choose to add any combination of the three new options included in Exodus. Crave more white-knuckle space dog-fighting? Incorporate the Cylon Fleet option. The Conflicted Loyalties option introduces new Loyalty Cards that will test even the most trustworthy allegiances. Finally, relive the emotional turmoil of the hit television series with the Ionian Nebula, which pits players against the various conflicting personalities aboard Galactica.
The Relentless Pursuit
The Cylon Fleet option keeps the pressure intense by introducing the Cylon Fleet game board. This board makes sure that every Crisis Card drawn will result in some sort of enemy ship activity. Once the Cylon Pursuit Track reaches the end, the Cylon ships will transfer over to the main game board, surrounding Galactica. There’s little time for rest between assaults, so get out there and protect those civvies, fighter jockeys!
You Can't Handle the Truth!
Alliances are put to the test in the Conflicted Loyalties option, where the new Final Five Loyalty Cards up the stakes and introduce penalties for revealing your fellow humans’ Loyalty Card. In addition, new Personal Goal Loyalty Cards present players with an incriminating task to undertake. If they don’t fulfill their goal, then they will cause Galactica to lose a resource at the end of the game. Will you raise suspicion by completing the damaging task, or will you lay low and hope your failures won’t condemn the rest of your crew?
Finally, with the Ionian Nebula option, familiar faces populate the fleet as allies, and can be encountered by visiting locations on Galactica. But beware! The Cylons can influence these non-player characters, compelling them to produce negative effects when encountered. Manage humanity’s conflicting personalities carefully... or infighting will leave you vulnerable!
The survival of the human race hangs in the balance. Where do your loyalties lie? Find out today with Exodus, on sale now!
Based on the hit Syfy series, Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game is an exciting game of mistrust, intrigue, and the struggle for survival in which three to six take the roles of their favorite characters from the show. Each playable character has their own abilities and weaknesses, and all must work together in order for humanity to have any hope of survival. However, one or more players in every game is secretly a Cylon, and wants the humans to perish.
Cylon Fleet is the best way to get a lot of fun, i love it!
A must to have for any bsg players out there. With this expansion new ways much better ways, will unfold. =) There are more cards, a new way of playing with the basestar board etc :) GET IT USE IT LOVE IT!
@redsimon: IMHO it's all right. Our group almost never plays Cylon leaders. We are much more into finding out who the Cylon is, which I certainly find more thrilling. So "Exodus" is really what we were hoping for!
It's good to have another expansion, but still... we want more treachery cards and cylon leaders!
The best way to start this year! I can't wait to buy Exodus!
I just picked this up, and the game looks great, haven't had a chance to play it, but very excited to!
Now to hound my local game store and see when they'll have it!
Finally! This is going to be fun!
