[quote user="wolfx"]Let it be known that the lords of Kobol were with us

 during BGC Boardgame Retreat 2010, where the humans finally arrived

safely on Terra. :D



Cylons and symphatisers, better luck next time. :D



So say we all. :P[/quote]
 
Breaking news.....
While the Humans were naturally ecstatic with joy on reaching what they first thought to be Terra, they found out to their dismay later they were misled by the questionable Helena Ken, and they have only reached Kobol. [brickwall]
 
To add to their misery, when they awoke this morning they found themselves back at Day Zero of the Cylon Massacre. Seems like someone had messed with their minds and time-warped them back to Day Zero!! Now they have to do the jumps to Kobol all over again!!

[arghh]

However this time, we'll urge them to question the loyalty of Helena the Ken.... Pictured below is a well-known Cylon leader who (hmm) also likes to wear "hats". Notice the similarity?

[:-*] Psst.. we suggest you execute Helena the next time you see her!! Also if you see her again without hats, she probably has intel on this page and is now chucking away her hat.. but you can't trick us, you Cylon Leader!! [pokeeye]

Don't miss the climatic rematch this Friday... ONLY AT OTK!

Unfortunately Helena Ken will most probably be dating a hot cylon chick this Friday and will not be joining the upcoming session.



I hope the next admiral will do as splendid a job that I did.



So say we all. :P

Welcome to BGC Boardgame Retreat! This is

the third boardgame retreat I’ve been to and I’m unique in being the

only one attending all three retreats held in recent years. But enough

about me, on to the report! I’m sure jack208 will post something later

so I’m just going to make this report one that’s seen from my

perspective:





Nice signs in Genting GICC directing gamers to the correct room.





Here’s Game Zero in progress with me and li li playing Three-of-a-Crime with…





arm and aanemesis! arm’s a thai and his name is too long to spell so

i’ll just call him by the name we all used in the retreat. This is a

fantastic game that’s really short and quick. Basically it’s deduction

with a speed element that’s easily described as mastermind-lite.





lester, cristiano, leeching and teddy are doing Rat-a-tat-Cat. Our Three-of-a-Crime game went into overtime so did not manage to find out what the other games played like.





Sleeping Queens game going on here with wolfx, wonglc, swee ee, rob

and waiyan. Not sure what is going on here as people kept calling out

‘you can’t count!’ amidst laughter. head scratch.





games on display, a taste of things to come.





Game Zero in progress. This one is called Manila. Teddy makes a grab for the goods!





The biggest con of them all, wolfx, demonstrating the art of ‘risk-taking’ in Manila.





me, rob, cristiano and wonglc facing terrible disasters In the Year of the Dragon. We seem to have cristiano at a disadvantage as we had played this game before sometime or another.





The ladies swee ee and li li enjoying Stone Age. The feedback afterwards were positive!





‘He did it!’ lester tries to put the blame on arm… kekeke





Game Two in progress… wolfx says no comment when asked how he plans to win the game of Endeavor. leeching and cristiano seems to be questioning wolfx’s lack of strategy.





Giants being played here.





Homesteaders. This game is serious, I took the Rail

Yard but still end up beaten by everyone else. Good job! Btw there are

no records being broken in this game. All players pass the IMF test (all

 loans repaid).





Miniatures from the Giants game. Really high quality components, eye-catching.





A game of Taluva was played by the Endeavor crew as they await the slow number-crunchers at the other tables.





Game Three: swee ee shows aanemesis how to ‘CHOP!’ in a game of Wasabi. Disclaimer: swee ee won the game while aanemesis lost horribly like a fly being crushed by an elephant!





Alhambra. Man these guys are serious.





Priests of Ra. errr… jack208, so how do we play the game???





The score after three rounds of gaming.





Rob emerges victorious and claims his prize!





Teddy emerges… last and gets a consolation prize!





wolfx: Drat! I should have lost all my games and claim a prize too!





Another shot of all the games brought to the retreat.





And us behind the games. See you guys next year!…



Oh wait, all of us stayed back and overnight at Genting. So after

dinner at the First World Plaza, we moved on to…. gaming after 8.





Rooting out cylons in Battlestar Galactica with the new Pegasus board.





Building industries in err.. the Age of Industry (game courtesy of blownfreaks)





A newbie game of Le Harve. In the end, the day

proved too tiring and the gamers retired after playing a few games. Not

pictured here is the crack game of Race for the Galaxy played by veterans rob, aanemesis, wolfx and myself.





Obligatory shot of the city in the clouds – Genting.



Alright, see you guys next year! (or next con, or the keretapi-con, whichever comes first)
