Description

A sniper rifle, for example, gives some extra firepower to whomever wields it and can provide a get-out-of-jail free card should you find yourself facing an ambush situation when resolving a Misbehave card, while Fancy Duds and Fake ID can give you a big advantage when trying to talk your way out of a situation and may even let you waltz straight through. As for the Reavers due to the size of the territory they must cover it felt like there almost needed to be a second Cutter floating around to ensure that making your way through their space was a more tense experience. That kind of knowledge mitigates the randomness somewhat, but ultimately the game still often comes down to the luck of the draw.

Some captains prefer to go in guns-a-blazin’ while others might rely more on their ability to hack their way through, yet others might try to talk their way through. We’ve played with up to four players, but almost all games have been played with just the two of us. In some ways you can even view this as thematic: just like Mal’s early day’s as a captain you’ll spend your first while blindly trying to figure out what’s going on and how you’re supposed to go about this whole life of crime thing, but get some time under your belt and you’ll know just where to go to get the best deals. Cooperative board games, in which the shared gaming experience is the main focus, and legacy games, in which the board game changes during the game due to the decisions of the other players, are only two trends in the board game sector. If you’re not solid with Harken you’ll live your life in constant fear of Customs inspections and warrants.My only complaint here is that it didn’t feel like morality, which is an important aspect of the TV show, came into play very often. The tag on the game’s box pretty much sums up everything perfectly: find a crew, find a job, keep flying. But even on these more dangerous and rewarding missions, you’re still essentially just flying from place to place, it’s just dressed up with a few extra mechanics. Browncoats everywhere should at the very least play this one, as the theme of the game can be as immersive as you want it to be. There have been times when my wife thought she had the game solved with her approach only to suffer defeat when I discovered a new approach that is just a little better.

Firefly is a game that is dripping in theme, matching the tone of the show well and dropping in plenty of easter eggs and references to keep even the most hardcore fans appeased. If you begin your next turn in the same sector with the Cruiser or Corvette, you may move normally, you are not stopped twice. Many jobs have some minimum requirements for starting them, some being as simple as needing 1-3 of certain symbols on your crew and others requiring specific keywords such as explosives or fancy duds.My aim is to focus on reviewing board games and how they play for two people and, on occasion, how they play for one person. Players begin with a ship, and travel from planet to planet, hiring crew, purchasing ship upgrades, and picking up cargo to deliver (jobs) all in the form of cards. Gale Force 9's "Firefly The Game" is a product of a deep love for the ill-fated TV series and the 'Verse it was set in.
