This game is for 1–4 players, but seeing that Firefly: The Game – Artful Dodgercontains a fifth ship, “allowing for up to five players to compete” I guess it’s playable with five players as is, if you’re willing to make a fifth ship, right?

Correct, plus you don't have to 'make' a 5th ship. A light blue plastic model comes with the ship card.

It worke fine with 5, but I feel downtime increases a bit too much.

I'd rather play with three, but not so much that I'd tell two people I like that they can't play.

Thanks all! (To HotHeart, I didn't mean with the Artful Dodger, but with just the base game; so you'll need an extra ship and an extra ship card.)

The copy I just bought comes with the Artful Dodger included. With a bit of luck the copies in Sweden will as well.

Ah, I get ya. Hehe.

Yeah, as far as I know, all the latest copies (as in what was produced for the UK, and presumably Europe) have a bigger box and have the Artful Dodger bundled in with it.

Of course, if the general estimate for playtimes is 'an hour per player' then you could be looking at some long games.

You would need an extra basic drive as well, as the Artful Dodger takes the faster one from one of the supply decks...

My UK copy included the Artful Dodger and a ship for it. This does explain my question of why on earth does just one ship have any differences? It made no sense to me but if it was the promo ship that has simply been added in then suddenly it all clicks into place :p
