Description Edit | History

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. Some crew and cargo are illegal, and can be confiscated if your ship is boarded by an alliance vessel. Travelling from planet to planet requires turning over "full burn" cards, one for each space moved. Most do nothing, but you can also encounter an Alliance ship, have a breakdown, or even run into Reavers. Completing jobs gets you cash. First player to complete the story goals wins.

Game description from the publisher:

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. 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) and the first in a series of tabletop hobby board games and miniatures games from GF9 set in the Firefly Universe.

2 Overlander ship card
Here's my interpretation of the Overlander from the Firefly fan movie "The 'Verse". To use, just mount the image onto a chipboard/cardboard backing using spray glue, then cut the card out using a craft knife.

14 Firefly Homemade Turn Action Cards
My wife and I enjoy the game very much. We've found some people need a way to keep track of what they are permitted to do on a turn. As well as "pre-program" their actions so when it's their turn they can act more quickly. We play tested with these last night and found them a huge help. Let me know if you find them useful, or have improvements.
