About this deal

Some players took on a variety of jobs, swapping crew as needed, while others were more careful when it came to accepting work and were more loyal, hunting down powerful allies and doing their best to keep them.

My final complaint about Gale Force’s otherwise fantastic rendition of Firefly in board-game form lies within the 18-page rulebook, a manual which is somewhat lacking. The only way to escape is to have a both a mechanic and pilot onboard so you can pull off the famous Crazy Ivan move, giving you the opportunity to quickly scurry away. Having recently played Star Wars: Outer Rim (Fantasy Flight Games, 2019) it is inevitable to make comparisons between these “space western” games. At the start of the game one of the available story cards is selected either at random or by deliberation, providing you with narrative context for the rest of the game.

Fuel, meanwhile, is never redundant, and there’s nothing more embarrassing than getting stuck in Reaver space because you didn’t load up a few extra barrels of the stuff.

Maybe for experienced players, but I found some turns where Analysis Paralysis set in, especially in the mid-game when I started feeling the time pressure. 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. Especially if you’re thinking about getting the expansions at some point, there will be even bigger space problems. 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.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.
