Hello everyone,

one of my favorite online-shops lists "Firefly: The Game" in two different versions - Standard and Deluxe Version.

My question would be: What are the differences between the standard version and the deluxe version of the game, if there really are two different versions available? Are there any at all? The shop I mentioned lists both games with the exact same pricing, and the game-descriptions are identical ...

Anyone any idea about that?

Best wishes!
Mad

I haven't heard of any deluxe version...


... that said, here are some (unlikely) possibilities: The version with the 'big damn heroes' promos, a copy from GenCon with the metal ship,...

well, thank you. Strikes me odd (as well) that the shop will offer two different version at the same price. Weird ... I guess I will address them with my question. And I have the feeling that "Deluxe" means a Gen Con or SPIEL version of the game ... No clue ...

Best wishes!

Warlord beats Troll, Troll beats Elf, Elf beats Water Sprite, and basically everything else beats Enchanted Bunny.

Also, the deluxe version is in German and the standard version is in English (Magierspiele)

But as Paul suggested, I think the deluxe version will most likely have one of the promos.

I suspect they are out there in different guises, from vendors that are offering exclusive or semi-exclusive promos! That's why I just borrow everything I can anyhow.

arrrh I don't care--I'm still free. They can't take the sky from me.

Interestingly, the stock that is just hitting the UK market appears to contain the fifth ship and card. At least that is the case for some of the stock, based on listings I have seen - anyone buying in the expectation of a fifth ship should ask before placing their order.

Also, this third party Amazon seller has a completely different box.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Firefly-Game-Exclusive-Board-Force/d...

Although it might just be a pre-production picture. The box I bought pre-ordered from Amazon.co.uk (which essentially was a grey import, brought over from France) was the familiar sqare box, with only 4 ships. However, I am not that miffed, as it cost me a lot less, and I should have the Artful Dodger sometime in the New Year.

Just to clear up any confusion (as I had some earlier) the limited release from GenCon had a resin Alliance Cruiser ship. This is still a plastic ship but the resin plastic is a better plastic especially for painting. The GenCon exclusive and regular version of the game both come with Alliance Cruiser ships of the same size and shape. Both are plastic, the benefit of the GenCon version is that it would be a better model if you want to paint it. I got the normal version of the game after having played the GenCon version at GenCon and I can't tell the difference between the ships, but I am not a guy that paints minis.

For what it's worth, I just got what my shop listed as the Deluxe Edition and it was indeed the UK edition in the bigger box and including the Artful Dodger On a side note: the Artful Dodger ship card in this one is the same thickness as the other ones, so not thinner like the one from GTM

Felix (or anyone else), have you found a US retailer that is offering the Artful Dodger included? I haven't gotten a copy yet and would rather purchase one that included Artful Dodger.

Quick question for those who have the UK edition:

I got the AD ship and board, but only 4 drive cores (no MK-2). Did everyone else get/not get the extra drove core?

You're meant to remove it from the relevant purchase deck. Can't remember where I found that but it was a vaguely official source.

That's from the instructions included in the Game Trader magazine which had the ship included (couple of pages from the back next to an advert for the game).
