Product Description

Product Description

The first expansion for Battlestar Galactica: The Board Game, Pegasus adds two new supplemental game boards featuring the Battlestar Pegasus and the planet New Caprica, seven new characters, 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 - the Pegasus alone for the additional firepower she provides, or add the New Caprica board to simulate the rebellion on the new 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars New Caprica or Bust! October 6, 2009
Durability: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The "Pegasus" expansion for the Battlestar Galactica board game changes many things about the gaming experience players of the core BSG set have come to know (and sometimes dread). The goal is to simulate, in game form, the latter half of season two of the Battlestar Galactica TV show--with the arrival of the Battlerstar Pegasus, the internecine strife with Pegasus, the settling of New Caprica and subsequent Cylon oppression there.
1) New Human Characters
Admiral Cain has the "blind jump" ability which, at the cost of some civilian ships, gets the fleet out of tricky situations that could cost the fleet even more ships. Anastasia "Dee" Dualla has the ability to move all civilian ships on the board, hopefully out of harm's way. Louanne "Kat" Katraine is a hotshot pilot with the ability to use the numbers on skill cards (+2) she discards instead of die rolls. And Ellen Tigh--the only Human who draws the new Treachery skill cards--can usurp the Admiral or President title for one turn at a key moment. Of all of them, Cain sees the most play in games I'm involved in.
2) Playable Cylon Leaders
Yes, now you can start the game as one of three Cylon leaders: Cavil, Leoben Conoy, or "Caprica" Six. You can only play as a Cylon leader with four or more players involved. Cavil can make a Cylon Basestar appear on his turn, hounding the fleet mercilessly. Leoben can trade Skill cards from his hand with the Destiny deck, influencing Skill Checks. Six can steal cards from a player, but gives them the option to replace that card from outside their normal skill set. The Cylon Leaders have a way to infiltrate the fleet to help or hinder the Humans' struggle for survival. When they are infiltrating, they can activate locations and use Skill cards as if they were Human players.

First, I'm going to assume you've played the base game; I'm only going to talk about new things in this review.

Executions - The most hyped and anticipated part of the expansion was the ability to kill characters. By passing a skill check on a new location, a character will be executed. If she is human, she must reveal all of her loyalty cards, discard all of her skill cards, subtract a morale, and choose a new character. If she is a cylon, she must reveal a "You are a cylon" card, discard skill cards, and move to the resurrection ship; they do not receive a super crisis. The main problem with executions is the cost of confirming loyalty is too low - one morale can be regained via an inspirational speech, and from that point on you know that you can use as many executive orders as you want on that character with no worry of them taking advantage of the situation. The benefits of executing a Cylon are small as well - they don't receive a super crisis, but only one super crisis is very threatening. They also don't have to waste a turn revealing, so they're free to start causing havoc a lot sooner than they would if you had simply brigged them. This makes me think that execution is meant to be used to confirm loyalty rather than expose cylons, which cuts down on the tension people loved so much about the base game.

New characters - Helena Cain is a terrible addition to the game.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great expansion to a great board game. July 3, 2013
Verified Purchase
I'm writing this review with the assumption that readers have bought the base board game (Battlestar Galactica The Board Game); this is not a stand-alone expansion -- it requires the core game to play.

What makes this expansion so great is all the variety it adds to the core game without changing the formula too much, and it also allows the owner to adjust game variants or exclude some from the game all together, without ruining the game's balance. For example: we rarely play with the New Caprica variant; while thematically suitable, it feels like a completely different game and makes the game even more difficult for the human player's to win as it legthens gameplay by another hour or so.

Even if you're not often using aspects of the Pegasus expansion, I still think there's more than enough here to warrant a purchase. New cards, the Pegasus ship, new characters, rule changes and adjustments and plastic basestars (may be the most wanted item in the expansion) are all easily implemented into the core game without throwing the game off balance. Cylon leaders take more time to explain and master (recommended for experienced players) and take away some of the mystery of the game, but it's great to have them as an option. The same goes with New Caprica; one can never have too many options (I recommend playing New Caprica with only experienced players and when said players want a more challenging and lengthy game).

Like the base game, to get the whole BSG board game experience one should watch the reimagined series (particularly because of all the spoilers in the game cards) and play with fellow fans. This is a very social game, so enjoyment varies depending on who you're playing with and overall experience.
