Battlestar Galactica – Ionian Nebula
We kept The Pegasus and Treachery cards in but otherwise this was our first foray into Ionian Nebula.
Mike and Bruce turned out to be Cylons against Phil, Darryl and Andy. It took ages before any Blue Cylon attack cards were drawn, only after Bruce declared as a Cylon before the penultimate jump and then so many came out at once we had every piece on the board. Due to food and water shortages we ran out of food very quickly but population remained okay.
Bruce was the only declared Cylon at the Crossroads and unluckily was forced to draw Trauma tokens and was eliminated. Phil went through 4 characters due to multiple executions (Cain, Adama, Tigh and finished the game with Apollo). Even Andy was executed due to low morale before the final jump (ending with Chief Tyrrol). Darryl’s Gaeta ended up being both President and Admiral. A close win for the humans with food, morale and fuel all in the low red (about 1 or 2) and population just a little higher at 3 or 4. Bruce was left cursing…if it hadn’t been for all those trauma tokens at the Crossroads he would have had those pesky humans at the battle of the Ionian Nebula.
