Battlestar Galactica Board Game Review

This is set just after the Cylon attack on the Colonies, the remnants of the human race are on the run, constantly searching for the next signpost on the road to Earth. They face the threat of Cylon attack from without, and treachery and crisis from within. Humanity must work together if they are to have any hope of survival…but how can they, when any of them may, in fact, be a Cylon agent?


In the game you can choose to be 1 of your 10 favorite characters from the series, once selected you take leadership roles within the fleet, science, military, politics and all out command.With at least one person being a Cylon or maybe just a sympathizer, whose goal is to sabotage the game for everyone else playing, it will keep everyone guessing. Each playable character has their own abilities and weaknesses, and must all work together in order for humanity to have any hope of survival.


You don’t need to have watched the show to play this game, but it does help.


Estimates at 180mins of play time, I find that to be accurate call, just depends how many people are playing and how quick you are. This game will turn friends against each other but there is a certain satisfaction at seeing everyone’s true colors.

This one is probably not great for beginners to play, but if your fans of the show its a must.
