Check out this really cool Firefly board game coming from Gale Force Nine called Firefly: The Game. I'm not a big fan of board games, but I think I'd give this game a whirl. It lets you captain your own ship and take on whatever jobs you can find, all while dealing with the Alliance and Reavers. The photos you see here are just a work in progress, but it gives you a good idea of what's to come.
Here's some more details from the official website:
In Firefly: The Game, 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). It will be the first in a series of tabletop hobby boardgames and miniatures games from GF9 set in the Firefly Universe.
“Building on the success of Spartacus: A Game of Blood and Treachery, we're thrilled to be making a game that evokes the heart and themes of Firefly - the best ‘gorram’ show in the 'Verse.” said John Kovaleski, CEO of Gale Force Nine, “With challenging game play, fantastic production values and compelling narratives, you and your fellow captains will want to head out into the big black again and again".
“We’re pleased to be working with Gale Force Nine to bring a new board game to the devoted fans of Firefly.Firefly: The Game is innovative and remains true to the spirit of the popular series” stated Jeffrey Godsick, President of Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products.
