|Battlestar Galactica | Published 10 June 2009|
On behalf of the officers and crew of the Pegasus...it's a pleasure to see all of you. Welcome back to the Colonial Fleet.
- Admiral Helena Cain, "Pegasus"
For nearly half a year following the destruction of the Twelve Colonies, the crew of the Battlestar Galactica defended the last remaining human survivors. Then, all at once, salvation appeared in the form of the Battlestar Pegasus. At nearly twice the size of Galactica, with upgraded weapons batteries and a newer, larger fleet of Vipers and Raptors, the fleet was now safer...
...or so they thought.
This fall brings the first expansion for Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game. The Pegasus expansion adds two new supplemental game boards featuring the Battlestar Pegasus and the planet of New Caprica, seven new characters, a new Cylon Locations overlay, two plastic Basestars, as well as new Destination, Crisis, Loyalty, Quorum, Super Crisis, and Skill cards.
The new Pegasus board can be used by itself or together with the New Caprica board to create the game you desire – use the Pegasus alone for the additional firepower she provides, or add the New Caprica board to simulate the rebellion on the human colony, bringing the game to an epic level.
New rules introduce the ability to play as a new character type – the Cylon Leader, with a new Treachery Skill card type.
I am a flag officer on detached service during a time of war. Regulations give me broad authority in this matter.
- Admiral Helena Cain
Launch the fighters.
- Commander William Adama
How will the crews of the Galactica and the Pegasus mesh when they join each other on your game table? Will the Cylons be able to subjugate the human rebellion on New Caprica? Will an open Cylon Leader be able to vent the last remaining humans into space, giving the toasters control over the galaxy?
Pegasus will be FTL jumping into your friendly local game store this Fall. Be on the lookout for previews leading up to the expansion's release.
So say we all!
Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game is a semi-cooperative game of politics, betrayal, and survival for 3-6 players, based on the hit SciFi Channel series.
WOW!!! Great!!! At last a extension, I have to make a back flip with my chair..........
aaarrrgh!!!!! I land on my head, but nothing broke, I am fine peoples.
To much happy, like a kid on Christmas day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Cylon mission in progress....
Had to happen. awesome idea's, just need some more expansions for starcraft and ffg will complete meeeeeeeeee.
Looks great! Don't know how will they implement the Cylon Leaders so that it doesn't spoil the fun of playing with hidden loyalties. But I guess there's no need to worry with FFG ;-)
So once again it looks like I will be in line well before 2 PM on GenCon Thurs to get the expansion.
Does that card say "You are a sympathetic Cylon"?
I like it a lot! Pegasus or Pegasus + New Caprica... so no New Caprica alone? Also, the cylon locations overlay is optional or mandatory, and can it be used with regular BSG without the expansion? Are the cards just mixable into base game or do they need the expansion, too? I didn't notice an expansion symbol...
Gah! Lots of question! And meanwhile, economy is conspiring against me getting the expansion... here's hoping it all ends well!
I can't wait for this expansion. Seems like terrific addition to the Game that I conside one of the best released in the last year. Hurry up FFG.
At last! This expansion seems to be a great one: new game boards, treachery cards and cylon characters...
I'm not sure to be able to wait until Fall!
Awesome! Wondering how this stuff works already :P
Glad we are getting more loyalty cards so we can mix up the game a little if we choose, does it add support for 7 players perhaps?
Yay an extension. Someting to spice up the game. I playing regularly with friends an we like the game a lot some I'm very interested.
THANK YOU GOD...and thank you FFG. Hurry up now fall seems so far away...
SO SAY WE ALL!
