Battlestar Galactica The Board Game
Saturday March 12, 1-5pm
Sunday, March 13, 2-6pm

The Cylons were created to make life easier on the Twelve Colonies, before the day they decided to kill their masters. After a long and bloody struggle, an armistice was declared and the Cylons left for another world. Forty years later, they returned and brought humanity to the brink of extinction. The remaining humans, led by the crew of the Battlestar Galactica, flee in hope of finding a new home, one known by legend as Earth. But as resources run low, the survivors discover that their enemy can appear human and infiltrate the fleet from the inside…

Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game provides a unique gaming experience. Unlike most games where players win individually, Battlestar Galactica is a cooperative game, with the added complication that one or more of the players is a secret Cylon traitor—your entire side will win or lose, and you might not even be certain who is on your side until the game ends!

Each player is secretly assigned his or her loyalty at the start of the game. Players will either be loyal to the humans or to the Cylons. Humans and Cylons have specific and conflicting winning objectives. The human players win by reaching Kobol, but the Galactica will be be threatened by a host of challenges along the way. Only through the cooperation of the humans will the ship (and fleet) survive. The Cylon players win either by destroying the Galactica with attacks from the Cylon fleet, or, through sabotage that reduces one of the necessary resources (Food, Fuel, Population, or Morale) to zero.

Either all of the humans win together or all of the Cylons win together… but both sides must figure out who they can trust in order to achieve victory.
