Searching for the Dollhouse on Caprica

A few months ago, I decided to sign up for the waiting list for a Battlestar Galactica board game "Play by Forum" game. And finally over the weekend, my number was called.

Of course I (voluntarily) chose the character who is least good for impatient page-reloaders: Helo, whose penalty is that he can't do anything (more or less) for a whole turn.

Anyway, due to the secrecy nature of the game I shouldn't say much about it here until it is over, but I've already got my thoughts before the first turn has even gotten to the crisis phase...

In case you want to voyeuristically watch my game in progress, here is a link.


  1. BSG seems like an even worse game than VTES to try to play online - it's nothing but table talk. That might just be my Negative Nancy Nature coming through, though, as it looks like you guys have a lot of chatter going on before loyalty cards have been dealt yet.

  2. It's slow, it's bickery, it's a gamble on the dynamics of the player group, and it requires a non-player moderator to handle all the secrecy.

    That being said, people enjoy it, and it doesn't hurt to try it once, except for the fact that I'm locked in for a few months....
