Announcing an Upcoming Expansion for Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game
|Battlestar Galactica | Published 15 April 2013|
“If we succeed in our mission, Galactica will bring us home.”
– Admiral William Adama
The Battlestar Galactica, humanity’s last beacon of hope, falters and crumbles. A tenuous solidarity between human and Cylon wavers under overwhelming desperation and doubt. For those seeking the promise of peace, a single vessel guards the future. The Demetrius, guided by unknown forces, plots a course through the stars…a course for home. Many would oppose this vision of the future. In this desperate time, both human and Cylon are driven to take matters into their own hands. For some, this means risking everything. For others, this means mutiny.
Fantasy Flight Games is pleased to announce Daybreak, an upcoming expansion for Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game! With two supplemental game boards and hundreds of cards and tokens, Daybreak invites players to undertake desperate missions, struggle under the constant threat of mutiny, and bargain with Cylon Leaders driven by motives of their own!
New Crises, and the Crew to Face Them
Daybreak introduces twelve new character sheets, thirty new Crisis cards, twenty-five new Skill cards, and much more. Patch your fellow crew members up as the crotchety Sherman “Doc” Cottle, argue your way out of a tight spot as the clever Romo Lampkin, or take the role of one of several other fan-favorite characters.
Whoever you choose, you’ll face a range of never-before-seen Crisis cards. Even as the fleet falls apart from years of wear and tear, it is plagued by religious turmoil, an openly insubordinate crew, and constant harassment by Cylons. Luckily, their time at war has also honed the crew’s skills; new Skill cards represent the level of adaptability and fearlessness you’d expect from seasoned veterans.
An Epic Journey Concludes
As humanity enters its darkest hour, a glimmer of hope appears on the horizon. By undertaking a series of dangerous missions, the Colonial Fleet has an opportunity to not simply survive to see another day, but to once and for all defeat their enemies and find a home to start their new lives.
“The Search for Home” is a collection of rules and components that together make up an optional Battlestar Galactica experience. A new endgame plus much more, “The Search for Home” option adds a game board for the Demetrius, the sewage processing ship that becomes the fleet’s best hope of salvation.
The crews of the Galactica and the Demetrius will go on challenging missions, represented by new Mission cards, as they gradually approach a new life on Earth. These high-risk, high-reward Mission cards offer potentially game-changing effects...if you can earn them.
With all of these options (and much more), the struggle between humans and Cylons has never been more desperate. Can you overcome treachery, the threat of mutiny, and the enigmatic motives of Cylon Leaders to survive? Find out when the Daybreak expansion for Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game arrives in stores in the third quarter of 2013. In the meantime, learn more at our Daybreak website and check back often for previews!
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.
