I don't like to play favourites with my games. I have lots of different games I like for lots of different situations.
But... if I had to pick, Battlestar Galactica would be up there. I've probably played it over 20 times, and given each game takes 3-5 hours, that means I've spent about 4 whole days of my life playing. That's a pretty glorious long weekend.
BSG is an older game (so old its currently out of print) but it is a classic. An epic space pursuit, pitting humans against hidden Cylons. It's got politics, space battles and a brig. Other than in Monopoly, in how many other games can you send your opponents to jail? Can the humans survive and reach their destination or can the Cylons defeat them before they get there?
Our good friend Chris has even stronger feelings about BSG than us, and just last week we completed his legacy variant. Played over multiple games, it follows the 4 seasons of the show, and when characters die in the game they are gone for the rest of the game (unless they are Cylons - because as you know there are multiple copies!) It seemed like the perfect time to have him on the podcast to discuss all things BSG.
We will be back to our normal format next week, but if you want to keep up with us in the mean time we have links to all our social media at the bottom of the page, and check out www.insidevoicenetwork.com for podcasts that probably aren't covering BSG!
