Hello and welcome

Welcome to the Battlestar Galactica e-board game project. The Battlestar Galactica e-board game is an electronic version of the Fantasy Flight Games homonymous board game, which is based on the absolutely awesome 2004-2009 reimagined Battlestar Galactica TV series. While the board game is an exciting mix of politics, betrayal and survival and is played by 3-6 players, this project here is an attempt to transfer the game mechanics to a single-player electronic game. Of course, the aim is not to replace the board game (as if it could ever be possible), but to give its fans a substitute until the next playing session and to increase the anticipation for it. Plus, it gives me something I like to do with my free time, being a BSG fanboy and a programming lover.
The BSG e-board game is being developed in Visual basic 6.0. While not the most contemporary or strongest programming environment, firstly it's the one I'm most familiar with, and secondly Visual Basic, through its simplicity, is more than enough to handle the mechanics of a board game. As it is though, this is a tricky and not so simple project, and this is why I could use any help available with playtesting and bug tracing. So please playtest all you can, and then feel free to submit any comments or suggestions.

Keep checking this blog for new releases and bug fixes.
