Firefly: The Board Game (with "Breakin' Atmo" booster)

Find a crew. Find a job. Keep flying.

In Firefly: The Game, you captain your own Firefly-class transport ship, traveling the 'Verse with a handpicked crew of fighters, mechanics and other travelers. As a captain desperate for work, you 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. 

Some crew and cargo are illegal, and can be confiscated if your ship is boarded by an alliance vessel. Traveling 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.

Breakin’ Atmo brings more excitement to the ‘Verse with loads of challenging new Jobs, shiny new Gear, and helpful Crew. A shrewd captain can set up a sweet payday with a bit of careful planning working new Jobs with skill-based payouts. New Crew offer more choices for the hard-to-get Tech and Negotiation skills as well as the all-important Keywords. Breakin’ Atmo Gear introduces some intriguing new game abilities and potential combos.  You may even care to try your luck at gambling with a hand of Tall Cards.

If anybody else has a set they are willing to bring and teach, please let me know and I will up the RSVP limit.

Let's be bad guys!

    Hey, even if there is no space left, I'd like to come to at least watch.

    I love Firefly!

    Firefly with Atmo booster, Superbowl playing on big screens & Silver Grill cooking up the grub??

    It sounds like the finest party I can imagine getting paid to go to!

      I hope you will find it up to the standards of your outings. More conversation and somewhat less petty theft and getting hit with pool cues.

      I may be able to help out with the rules. I learned with Sarah and others at Silver Grill in November and then I read the rules because the game was so cool. I would of course have to review them because it fades with time and not playing. I downloaded a PDF copy of the rules from: http://www.fireflythe...­
