Re-imagined Series

A popular game within Colonial society, possibly team-based, which enjoyed television coverage across the the Twelve Colonies (Mini-Series), and also popular aboard Colonial warships (Litmus).

The game appears to be a close quarters ball game played on a pyramid-shaped court, hence the name of the game Pyramid. The objective is apparently to score points by getting the ball into a goal at the top of the pyramid. The game appears to be a cross between basketball, rugby and lacrosse. Pyramid can be played one-on-one or in teams. Pyramid is also played professionally, teams like the Caprica Buccaneers are sports heroes akin to modern day professional sports teams. While teams can consist of upwards of eight people it is probable that the sport is played one-on-one with players constantly rotating on and off the court between plays. The Pyramid court that Starbuck and Anders played on, which was regulation size in spite of it's makeshift layout, didn't look much bigger than a tether ball circle. It is unlikely that it can support up to 16 players at one time. (Resistance)
