Firefly: The Board Game

Find a crew. Find a job. Keep flying.

Players begin with a ship, and travel from planet to planet, hiring crew, purchasing ship upgrades, and picking up cargo to deliver (jobs) all in the form of cards. Some crew and cargo are illegal, and can be confiscated if your ship is boarded by an alliance vessel. Travelling from planet to planet requires turning over "full burn" cards, one for each space moved. Most do nothing, but you can also encounter an Alliance ship, have a breakdown, or even run into Reavers. Completing jobs gets you cash. First player to complete the story goals wins.

Game description from the publisher:

In Firefly: The Game – based on the popular Firefly television series created by Joss Whedon – players captain their own Firefly-class transport ship, traveling the 'Verse with a handpicked crew of fighters, mechanics and other travelers. As a captain desperate for work, players are compelled to take on any job — so long as it pays. Double-dealing employers, heavy-handed Alliance patrols, and marauding Reavers are all in a day's work for a ship's captain at the edge of the 'Verse. Firefly: The Game is a high-end thematic tabletop boardgame from Gale Force Nine (GF9) and the first in a series of tabletop hobby board games and miniatures games from GF9 set in the Firefly Universe.

    I enjoyed meeting people at my first meetup in Austin. It was fun learning Firefly with Sarah, Dorrie, and Lane. I had a copy of the rules on my iPad, and I couldn't stop reading the missing pieces once I got home. Thanks y'all for helping me learn the game. I hope we can play it again sometime.

    A tricky learning curve for some, but everybody at my table really enjoyed the game. Congrats to Susan who won.

    I didn't get the notice about a spot opening until this was already over... I stayed home and watched several episodes of 'Chuck'.
    Would have loved to have played. I've seen most episodes at least twice!
    I have a copy of the "Big Bang Theory" game... maybe I'll bring that to the next event.

      Firefly games tend to run 3+ hours. That might not be enough times, James, but please bring it anyway!

    I would absolutely LOVE to play this game. Was considering buying it myself later this month. However, given the waiting list, and some guests for the weekend, I'm unlikely to make this meetup. But I'd love to catch the next and meet you awesome Browncoats!

  • Dorrie T.

    Ok. So. If Steven is working, Sarah buys and brings Firefly, one other of ya'll get a better offer (can't imagine what) then I'm in. SHINY! ... What? It could happen. (:-r)

    So has ANYBODY picked up another copy of the game yet? There are six folks on the waiting list, and I'd hate to turn them down.
