comment What does 'cheapest' mean in the Ancient Technology rule?
That's not an answer to the question. It answers a different question, that might be valid, but not this one. :-)

comment Is it possible for a 6-player game of BSG + Exodus to only ever have one Cylon?
I don't like adding and accepting my own answer, but I wanted to summarize the knowledge I've accumulated about this topic, plus the comments me and Ingó Vals had on the original answer. I will try to edit this answer to make it as thorough as I can in the future, perhaps adding more links to various house-rules that deal with the "Missing Cylon Syndrome".

But the Sympathizer doesn't necessarily turn Cylon. So if we've got the Cylon Loyalty card last in the deck, and all of the resources in the blue - no second Cylon.

No - again, I'm worried about a situation where the other Cylon card hasn't even been drawn. The chances for that are approx. 9%, which isn't very high, but isn't low enough in my opinion.

Is there a justification for this, balance-wise? Seems like it'll be a horrible game for the Cylons in this case. The reason why I've asked this question is to know whether it's a situation I want to prevent via house rules. :)

If one player is dealt two You Are a Cylon cards, then it'll be possible of him to use the Resurrection Ship to give one of his loyalty cards to another player, thus making him a second Cylon. The situation that disturbs me is the one where the second "You are a Cylon" card remains undrawn in the Loyalty deck.

comment Discard pile and shuffling question
I actually used this in several games - to draw all of my deck, and then gain a card and immediately put it into play by drawing one more card.

comment More conveniently randomizing the cardboard tokens
@Kempeth - yes, BSG is one of those games that require a big table. :)

comment City card and predicting when Supply piles will run low
I don't have the Prosperity set, so it's probably clarified in the rules - but the effects are cumulative, right?

comment What are good strategies involving Remodel?
You can't remodel estates into Markets - the cost difference is too big...

comment How can I effectively use the Coppersmith?
@keithjgrant - You're right, but it will not effect the chances of getting to 6$ - only 7$ and 5$...
