Description

I love the show, and this game evokes the theme very well even if you don’t pay attention to the names of the jobs or the scenarios flipped on the Misbehave cards. The anniversary release also swaps out the original board game’s standard pieces for some deluxe components, most notably 15 hand-painted resin ship miniatures to represent the vessels flying around the system. Named after an in-show class of spaceship, this excellent series lasted only 14 episodes before it was cancelled by Fox. A Story Card sets the mission for everyone - some involve quirky heists, others are more focused on getting rich by any means possible. I knew my wife would love it, being able to get Kaylee quicker and because she rarely flew to the rim planets on the expanded board anyway.

I was actually surprised at how much I still could enjoy going back to just the base game on this one. You can play Firefly the Game in whatever way you please, but let’s be honest - if you ain’t misbehavin’ you ain’t doing it right! Made from polypropolyne soft rubber the items that came with mine are malformed and damaged very badly.

You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site will not then work.We set the game up on Wednesday and played a round of it, and will hopefully play a few more over the course of the weekend before putting it away. 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. You are certainly not playing a multi-player solitaire game, as you need to be very aware of your opponents’ actions and intentions. Over time you’ll begin to notice that there are really a handful of cards in each deck, and only 2-3 contacts, that are really worth your time.

A big complaint is that you have to spend a lot of time at the beginning running around trying to hire crew and get gear so you can do some jobs, so we have some thoughts.

Not only the playing field needs space, but also the amount of cards, your ships and equipment need space.

Of course you can be this law-abiding guy who picks up passengers on Londinium, then sneaks them through the Verse, only to let them off again in Persephone.With more players, they begin in the discard pile, so a two-player game could potentially see a very early, and devastating, Reaver or Alliance draw that could set a player back. As a major fan of the TV series and reader of the comics the fact that this board game so wonderfully manages to turn the show’s themes and ideas into gameplay mechanics amazes me, and exponentially increases the pleasure I derive from playing it. Having said that more run-ins with both the Alliance and Reavers could also be too disruptive, dragging the pace of the game down far too much and potentially ruining player’s chances should they be unfortunate enough to run into them a few times due to a streak of bad luck.

This is a really solid game and I am glad it is on our 10×10 this year because it certainly has a ton of life left in our collection.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.
