History of the World next week? and my first time session report

Hey guys, I attended my first meeting yesterday and had a great time. I am visiting out here from Phoenix, AZ
for about a month, so it was great to find a fun group close to where I am staying.

History of the World - Interest for next week?
I spoke to some History of the World players and hope to get a game of that next Monday, as I have wanted to try it
for awhile. If anyone else is up for it, perhaps reply to this note so I can know how excited to get about
reading the rules. :)

Galaxy Trucker
I played 2 games yesterday, first one was Galaxy Trucker with the Big Expansion. Played with Steve, Walter,
and Alon(spelling?). I've played the base game a number of times and the expansion sure put a hurt on us. Our
ships continually were being destroyed. Going in to the final round, Steve had a "commanding" lead of
about 6 points compared to the rest of us with 0. I gave up early after scoring 10 easy points. I thought I
would assured victory. :) However, Alon had looked ahead on the cards and knew that this final voyage was
actually pretty much a cupcake run compared to the last 2 gauntlets of death. So he pulled out the win with
ease after pulling like 30 points of cargo alone.

Ghost Stories
Next game was one I brought that I played with Steve and Randy. This was my 3rd time playing and I have to say it
has quickly become one of my favorite cooperative games. We were holding pretty strong against the
onslaught of ghosts, however our Taoist monks started to run out of Qi about 5 ghosts too soon and the
Incarnate over powered us. We were all killed the village overrun. I'm now 0-3 at the initiate level in that
game. Lots of fun and very strategic in my opinion, though. The dice can help or hurt you, though.

Re: History of the World next week? and my first time session report


Hi,

I'm free on Monday to play HOW. I haven't played at Yahoo yet and this would be a great way to start. 

I've played the 90's AH cardboard counter version, but not the plastic figurine re-release or any of the
earlier versions. Which one were you thinking of playing?

I'm very fond of Ghost Stories. I'm usually not up for games that exist to grind you down, but the short length
and variable set up make this work better for me than Warrior Knights and such.

Let me know,

Adony

Unfortunately Daniel won't be able to attend (he was assaulted by a
surprise commitment).  Ergo 1830, 1832 and 1849 (which is currently
doing well in the poll) won't be around to play.

     John, Dan, Eric*, Eddie*, Joe F.*                (Le Havre)
        Winner: Dan


It was a light turnout for Memorial Day, but we still had a couple of players
new to the group: Danita, Ray G.'s wife, and Dave D.

With the extra time available, we had time for a game of Battlestar
Galactica:

--- Battlestar Galactica ---

We played using the variant to balance the game better.  I was President
Tom Zarek, Joe was the pilot Apollo, Danita was Admiral Adama, John was
Communications Officer Dee, Dan was the pilot Boomer, and Dave was Felix
Gaeta.  In this variant, Boomer's drawback has been changed to : you may
not look at your loyalty cards until after 2 jumps and 2 jump preps.

I was NOT A CYLON, started with a morale-increasing speech in my hand,
and drew two more speeches.  Joe/Apollo then used his turn to fly up to the
basestar and got blasted out of the sky by cylon raiders.  Admiral
Danita then used Command to launch two vipers and freeing Apollo to leap
out of sickbay back into space (his special power).  But on the Cylons'
turn, he got blasted again.  We lost some morale from crises and kept failing
to prepare the engine for jumps.  I tried a speech to rally the population, but
it had no effect as the cylons managed to destroy the 2 civilian ships outside
Galactica, costing us 3 population and another morale.  The vipers surrounded
Galactica and fired 10 times/turn inflict up that hurt morale and my
presidential speeches fell flat.  Still, we were working fairly effectively as
a team and there was absolutely no cylon activity in the crises.  Finally, we
managed to activate the jump engine, and the admiral jumped us 2 towards Kobol,
but Galactica was damaged and we were low on morale and population.

The second loyalty card was then dealt to us, with many people publicly
praying to be dealt a Cylon card, and I was still NOT A CYLON.  I was given an
executive order by John/Dee to raise our morale (which was in the red) and
failed twice, even with Dave/Felix's help.  Joe/Apollo then drew a crisis and
was forced to take the -1 morale as his drawback, leaving us at just 3 morale.
No cylon ships appeared, though, and we jumped again, this time moving to 4
(with 8-9 being a likely victory).  Everyone still seemed human!  Hmm.

Then, Dan/Boomer finally got to look at his loyalty cards.  Shortly after,
Admiral Danita drew a Crisis, that, if failed, would lose 1 morale.  Dan
then used Boomer's special ability to automatically fail the crisis, so we knew
she was a cylon.  I urged John to brig Boomer on his turn, and John hesitated,
then gave me an Executive Order to prove my humanity and do it myself.  Being
human, I pulled out an arrest order from my presidential cards and threw Boomer
in the Brig without a skill check.  Boomer then revealed as Cylon, but could
not use the Cylon ability.  We jumped again and Admiral Danita hemmed and
hawed and pulled out a 1!  Oh no, we were only 5 steps towards Kobol!  But,
she claimed the other card was actually worse, because she hinted it
hurt morale.

Stuck barely halfway towards winning, I was given an executive order to
perhaps improve morale, but I had run out of speeches.  Instead, I was
wondering who the other Cylon was and suspected that maybe Dan had drawn
both Cylon cards.  If that were the case, Dan would be giving his extra Cylon
card away to one of us.  I decided to play a card that made it difficult
for others to take the Presidency away from me.  Sure enough, on Dan's
turn, he went to the Resurrection Ship, drew a different Super Crisis, and
passed me his remaining Loyalty Card ... and just like that, I WAS A CYLON --
and if I revealed outside the brig, I would damage morale by 1!  Naturally
I pointed out that he was just trying to sow dissension but the others
grew wary of me.  However, cylon ships then showed up and we had to worry
about fending them off.  Dee used her communications ability to rescue
a bunch of civilian ships, but things were dire and the group decided to
try to escape early.  John hit the big red FTL button to jump early, but
we ended up losing 3 population in the process, dropping us to 3.  The
Admiral jumped us 2, giving us a total of 7, leaving the humans probably
1 jump short of victory.  John's crisis summoned more Cylon ships and jammed
our communications, leaving civilian ships unable to move.  Then, Dan
played his super-crisis, BOMB ON COLONIAL ONE, which on a failure,
subtracts 2 morale and destroys the presidential craft.  At this point, I
chucked in 4 strong negative cards to make sure the bomb went off, and the
humans catastrophically failed the super-crisis, lowering morale to 1.  John
and the rest then knew that I was the cylon, but meanwhile Dave had a turn and
chose to try to guard the civilian ships with fighters.  Since I was the
next player, I then revealed as a cylon and since I wasn't in the brig,
got to use my special Cylon power of subtracting morale by 1.  This sent
morale to 0 and the Cylons (Dan and Eugene) thus won the game, once
again on the final jump.  This was in spite of the fact that there was
absolutely no malicious Cylon activity for the entire first half of the game,
since Dan was dealt both Cylon Loyalty cards originally and did not know it.

New to the group this week was Rob Ehlers from Phoenix, AZ, who is visiting our
area for a month.

--- Battlestar Galactica ---

Once again I got into a game of Battlestar to try out the more
balanced/paranoid variant.  This time I was Helo Agathon, Tim chose Felix,
Oscar chose President Baltar (again), Amir chose Apollo, John chose Zarek, and
Roza became Admiral Tigh because she was attracted to his alcoholic tendencies.
I was NOT A CYLON.

Early on our crises failed to generate jump preps and more cylon ships
showed up.  After two jump preps, a crisis hit that, if failed, would move
jump preparation back one step.  When we resolved the crisis, there
were three (yellow) negative cards ... so one of us was a cylon!  Suspicion
immediately fell on the politicians Baltar and Zarek, and Zarek in particular
was doing a very unconvincing job of helping, and had drawn multiple yellow
cards earlier from the Press Room.  So on my second turn, I went
to the admiral's quarters and tried to throw him in the Brig.  Only a couple
of humans helped, so I had to throw most of my cards in -- and it barely
passed, so into the brig he went.  A crisis on Felix's turn allowed him to
look at the Loyalty card of another player, and he looked at the Admiral
Roza's, and said she was human.  Meanwhile, the Viper Command location
kept getting damaged, with people in it -- Admiral Tigh was sent to sick
bay, then Felix and Apollo shortly after repairing it.

Meanwhile, we finally managed to make our first jump (losing 1 population
in the process, but not before 2 cylon centurions had boarded Galactica.
Baltar drew a crisis that let him look at the Admiral's loyalty, and he
also says she's human.  Admiral Roza jumps us 2 and we draw our second loyalty
card.  I was still NOT A CYLON.  Roza and I started taking pot-shots at the
2 centurions on board.  We kill one but we rolled badly on the other.  Zarek
tries to bust out of the brig, but fails.  He then reveals himself as a cylon.
The admiral jumps us ... 1 more to 3, which leads to some suspicion.
Oscar/Baltar wants to use his cylon detector power, but before he can do so, a
crisis comes up that destroys it.

More cylons appear in the 3rd wave and we end up having to jump really early,
but we luck out and avoid losing any populations.  We jump 2 and actually
gain fuel, so things are looking secure on the fuel front.  However, we
keep drawing Food Shortage crises and soon Food drops to 3.  Then, Zarek
goes to the Resurrection Ship and passes his Loyalty card to Baltar, who
immediately castigates him for passing his Loyalty card to a player
who was far down in turn order and thus could be brigged.  Hearing this,
Admiral Tigh gives me an Executive Order and I throw Baltar in the Brig.
Then I give Admiral Tigh an Executive Order and she Declares Martial Law,
giving herself the Presidency.  Stripped of power and mobility, Baltar
reveals himself and plays a Massive Assault supercrisis to summon cylon
ships and push us back on the jump prep track.  Meanwhile, the Centurions
advance one step away from victory, leaving us exactly 1 turn to stop them from
taking over the ship (because John could push them to victory on his turn.).
Amir/Apollo gives me an executive order to shoot them, giving me two shots.
Needing a 7 on an 8-sided die to hit, I roll a 3 and ... a 7!  Humanity
is saved temporarily.

We then scouted the Jump deck looking for a 3 to get us to 8 for the win.
Admiral Roza said she found one, so we hit the FTL button early and
unfortunately lose 3 population in the process, taking us down to 1 population.
Unfortunately, the destination the Admiral chose was an Asteroid Belt, which
gave us 3 more distance to reach our goal of 8, but also destroys a civilian
ship.  Should the ship contain a population point, we would arrive at Kobol but
with not enough people alive to restart humanity.  We shuffled the ships, and
Roza drew -- a ship with population and fuel.  Humanity had reached their
destination but without enough people.  The Cylons had won again, although
barely.

Re: Session Report 06/01/09

Nice session report, Eugene.  I like how this game lends itself to becoming a real narrative when you read the
session report.  Very cool.
