Star Wars: Outer Rim

I don't know if this will replace Firefly in my collection, but I'm keeping an eye on this.

I only quickly scanned the announcement - so it’s Tokaido in the Star Wars universe?!

Looks more like Firefly: The Game in the Star Wars universe.

The "Read More" section of the FFG product page has more on gameplay.

I haven't played Firefly or Fallout so I don't know how this compares.

Dang..... I have been tossing around in my head for the last few years a game design on nearly this very theme... Bounty Hunters, but with a much larger map through the Star Wars galaxy. You take on the roll of one of the infamous bounty hunters and pickup bounties and search them out. Targets are on tokens and you can capture dead or alive for different factions. And there are certain areas of the galaxy that have a high Imperial presence so it is more challenging in those areas. You would be able to upgrade your ship and equipment throughout the game. And now they have gone and made portions of my ideas a reality....

This resembles GF9’s Firefly game more than anything else. Which is a great game whose only real drawback is as you add in things the physical footprint becomes unmanageable. If this brings similar plusses to Firefly but in a more compact layout it will be good.

I don't think it looks much like Firefly at all.

However have they issued any release date?

Someone on the FFG boards claiming to have playtested this says it isn't anything like Firefly.

I'm excited about the play time myself. I want something good and chunky, not something that'll be over with in forty-five minutes.

Can you post a link to the thread you are talking about? Thanks!

And, it says 2-3 hours on the game's page... so it sounds chunky.
