About this deal

I hate paper money in board games, but I make an exception for the money here because it’s beautiful and perfectly Firefly-esque. Join the community and come discuss games like Codenames, Wingspan, Brass, and all your other favorite games! Because you absolutely have to come to a full stop for the Cruiser whenever you’re classified as an outlaw this gives other players the chance to ruin your day by putting the Cruiser directly in your path. Even though the series was phased out quite quickly, the game had a longer runtime and besides two big expansions, several smaller expansions were also given.

This is where the heart of the game resides, usually being an afterthought for the early part of the game but serving as a ticking clock as soon as it becomes clear one player is moving toward the first of the main objectives. At the beginning you are alone on your big ship, with a little starting capital and a tank filling, now a whole universe is waiting for you to be explored. The end game goals can vary from getting a certain sum of money or completing a big ‘misbehaving’ mission. In an interesting and most welcome move there’s a single story card available that’s designed for solo play, which alters a few of the rules so that you can embark on the life of a Firefly captain all on your own. However, if you want more player interaction then you’ll love the ‘Pirates and Bounty Hunters’ expansion where you can get bounties for your opponent’s crew, battling and boarding!Some Captains (like Mal Reynolds) and Crew (like Wash, Zoe, Kaylee, Shepherd Book) are "Moral" characters who become Disgruntled by Immoral jobs or Immoral courses of action while Misbehavin' or Navigating. Especially if you’re thinking about getting the expansions at some point, there will be even bigger space problems.

Discard the losing character and the losing player gets an extra Gun Hand or maybe one of the Prostitutes (Emma, Lucy, Helen, Chari) if they're not in play. The downside of all this is the inordinate amount of table space you actually need to play this game.

Encountering the Reavers doesn’t happen often, but when it does they kill all the passengers and fugitives onboard, and then you’re guarenteed to lose one member of your crew, with a high chance of a second perishing as well.Dicebreaker is owned by Gamer Network Limited, a ReedPop company and subsidiary of Reed Exhibitions Limited.

With more expansions in the works Firefly is definitely one to watch if you’re looking for a quality space adventure. I played a 6-hour game at Dragonflight which was just painful (though we were playing up on the Executive level of the hotel because two of the players were staying there, so free food definitely helped! If you’re not solid with Harken you’ll live your life in constant fear of Customs inspections and warrants. For me, I do enjoy the game, but I need to be in the right mood before I pull it out and start moseying, misbehavin’, and seeing how the cruel fates of the ‘verse shape my adventure.
