Last night, we had 4 players, excited to play BSG again. The plan was New Caprica.
Matt - Adama
Kevin - Starbuck
Max - Zarek
Me - Caprica Six
I chose a Cylon Leader for a few reasons, but maybe not the best choice in 4p NC.
My agenda was comically unattainable: Humans Win and all resources at 3 or less.
Long story short, I tried flooding the board with Civvies but the fleshbags were too efficient. Shortly after Sleeper Phase, I realized that there was no hidden Cylon, which sealed my fate; without a check-spiking buddy, my influence on resources was minimal.
The fleet hopped right on and off New Caprica; Zarek compensated for his weakness with XOs aplenty.
Final score: Humans win (obviously), Pop at 7 and everything else at 4, after revealing Personal Goals.
I'm willing to give New Cap another shot, with more players and probably not choosing a Leader... but this experience, while still fun, didn't really shine.
