Has anyone ever played the late 1970s/early 80s version of the BSG Pyramid card game? The rules as portrayed in the series didn't appear very clear. I'm currently writing a BSG story that includes the game, so I've written an upcoming chapter based on the Earth version as I understand it rather than the BSG version that I clearly don't! Information on the Earth game can be found here:

That's the one I remember! I have the cards and it is fun but whether or not the Earth version is the same as the one on the show, anyone's guess. My thought is that there are no real rules as it was just made up for the scenes when Starbuck plays!
Lord, I'll do anything you want tomorrow, just don't call an alert tonight!
Thanks, Colonel. I ended up going with the Earth rules as I understand them (and no one's told me out on it yet!). If you want to check out the card game, it's the last section of Chapter 5: Friendly Finagling, which can be found at
