Let’s be honest. Even if the show’s use of clever twists, magic realism, and space battles was fun; it was really all about the politics, wasn’t it? And this is something Fantasy Flight’s legendary adaption offers in frakking spades. Taking place during the early seasons, the game covers Galactica’s initial attempts to jump home to Earth. This puts players in the role of key characters that oversee resource and morale management as they chug along in their journey. Except, there’s a cylon onboard. This means that turns are sabotaged, materials wasted, and what is arguably one of the most dramatic moments in gaming as the wrong suspect is airlocked. Pacey, hilarious, and transcendental with the right group – Battlestar is an exceptional pick for those looking to come away from a session with a tale or six.
