Firefly: The Boardgame

Don't know how many 'Verse fans or browncoats we have around here, but I just stumbled on this and it looks pretty damn awesome:

Looks like it's not due out until later this Fall. Man I'd LOVE to do a review of this baby!

Here's a video overview of it from GenCon 2013:

I think our local game shop is sick of me stopping in and checking to see if perhaps it's in, but they just hadn't gotten the chance to call me yet.   I was able to show the extra ship from GTM.  It teases me.

does it force you to play the turns out of order and then stop halfway through the game?

The expansion sets have already been canceled.

We each have a ship (I threatened bloody murder should anyone dream of taking the Serenity player card before me) and choose a captain from a variety of characters plucked from the series. Each character brings with them certain skills and/or benefits. Such as Nadi from the Heart of Gold episode who gets to hire crew for free. Presumably because she fellates them in lieu of payment.

Wow, really? LOL

At first I wasn’t convinced about using a deck but it’s quick, it’s simple and there’s no fucking about looking up results on tables that you’d need with a dice based option.

You Brits and your way with words...wish we could use those here.  :-X
