The Battlestar Galactica Loyalty Deck is an app that aims to help players during set-up of the Battlestar Galactica board game by FantasyFlight Games. (If you haven’t played the game, the loyalty deck is the deck of cards that secretly tell each player which side they are on.)
The app’s goal is to make it simple to assemble the correct mixture of cards required for the loyalty deck (as it must have an exact composition) without checking the rulebooks. With the two expansions available, there are now several factors that affect this composition. You select the options you want, press the button and it then tells you which cards to combine.
Okay, it may be a nuke to crack a walnut but I like the idea of it. Also, I appreciate the free app (created by a fan of the game) and think it’s a nice example of what an ap supporting a board game can do. (Sadly, the Arkham Horror Toolkit app would have benefitted from this approach – see the full review here.)
