Yes! After years of not even knowing I wanted a Firefly board game, there is now a Firefly board game: Firefly: The Game created by Gale Force Nine. It was unveiled at GenCon recently, and some lucky bastards had a chance to play it.
The Game is, of course, based on the short-lived television series Firefly. It’s a 1-4 player game in which players captain their own Firefly spaceship and travel around with a crew, taking any paying job they can find; pretty much like in the television show. They must complete jobs and face challenges to continue flying. I don’t know much about the mechanics or the production of the game, but I’ve only heard good things about it from the people who tried it at GenCon. And by that, I mean I read like one person’s review, but whatevs; it looks exciting.
It apparently sold out very quickly at GenCon, but we can expect to see this game in stores this September. You can follow the game’s development on their Facebook page. You can pre-order it at Miniature Market. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m looking forward to this. It just might be my next board game purchase.
