BSG Galore

So for all of you what the hell does "BSG" means, it stands for the greatest Sci-Fi film ever to exist.
Oh yes sir, it does. (Sorry to all Star Wars and Star Trek fans)

Battlestar Galactica is by far the most grittiest, "no bullshit", Sci-Fi show that i have ever seen.
The only failure in the show would probably be its Title.

Just a Short rundown on what BSG is: It is the epic journey of the last remnants of humankind trying to find their way to escape the genocide committed by their creation, the Cylons, (Robots/ Cybernetic Humanoids) and find a place to start anew.

It's an awesome show as morality, ethics and all sorts of dilemma is brought onto the show and makes you wonder what is right or wrong? The minute the show begins, you see the human race get wipe out.

NOW, What sci-fi show gives you that type of hard knocks so far?

Oh yeahh

The Cast of Battlestar Galactica. From Left, Colonel Tigh, President Laura Roslin, Admiral Adama, Commander Lee Apollo, Gaius Frakking Baltar, Kara "StarBuck" and Screw Up Thrace, "Helo" Agathon, Model 6, Sharon Valeri.

After having countless hours enjoying the TV Series, Me and My Buddies moved onto greener pastures but on the same plane of existence. In other words, delve into the BSG World and get our hands dirty in the Board Game.

Fantasy Flight Games provided us with that outlet. A very great adaptation fromt he TV Series, Fantasy Flight Games have made it great fun by taking out the essential parts of the show to make it into a highly interactive game.

My friend, Wei Ting, bought it from our local store, Paradigm Infinitium. Upon the dawn of our great holidays, It was non-stop action among friends and the game.

Let me put it in a perspective that is more understandable.
This game involves more bluffing skills than Texas Hold'em. There is more suspicion in this board game than Cluedo. And I have never knew that knowing your friends' character as a person and also the characters in the tv series plays a big part in the board game

Generally, If you are a Sci-Fi geek, and you are game for a sociable round of intense fun.
This game is for you.
