Battlestar Galactica is a semi-cooperative game of suspicion, betrayal and struggle for survival against the Cylons who have destroyed the home planet.
Players can choose between 10 characters classed as political leaders, military leaders, pilots or support and each character has their own benefits and weaknesses but they must all
work together in order to save humanity. However, some players play secretly side with the Cylons. A loyalty card at the start of the game will determine this and the other players
must to expose the traitors.
Each turn, players draw skill cards, move their character anywhere on the ship, perform actions and finally draw and resolve a Crisis Card. These rises are usually resolved by a particular
player choosing between two bad outcomes, but most commonly there are "skill checks" required. And this is where the Cylon infiltration comes into play. Each player passes skill cards secretly
into the challenge and some will help and some will hurt.
The players must survive crisis after crisis, fight off enemies, repair damage, defend civilian ships, and prepare the Galactica for "jump".
The goal for the human players is to jump the fleet enough to reach 8 distance and then executing one final jump to the plant of Kobol, else the Cylons win.
