From the game description:

"The Game is a high-end thematic tabletop boardgame from Gale Force Nine (GF9). It will be the first in a series of tabletop hobby boardgames and miniatures games from GF9 set in the Firefly Universe."

Uh, at first I thought they were talking about expansions, but on a second read I think they mean different games.

I noticed a few unhappy people in another thread already. They wanted co-op and to play actual characters instead of controlling a whole ship. So having multiple games with different mechanics probably isn't a bad thing at all.

If you love Firefly bit don't like this first game, there will be another option when the next game comes out.

It's all speculative until the first game does well. The enthusiasm of a few doesn't guarantee large-scale success.

While primarily used for killing vampires, a wooden stake to the heart is also highly effective against most other opponents.

I wanted to make a Firefly tether of Smugglers of the Galaxy. It would be a perfect fit!

Ahh, Smugglers. That game had so much spirit in it, but was a bit too rough in its implementation (and yes, component quality).

I can totally see a rethemed version of Space Alert where you just have to worry about (barely) holding together the ship

With GF9 and Toy Vault both producing games there should be something for everyone.

Well, there is definitely not any Firefly Breakfast Cereal but I'm pretty sure all of the rest of these are already available.

May the Schwartz be with you,

Looks like it's by the folks who did Spartacus: Blood and Sand? Haven't played, but heard good things, so hopefully there will be a good game under the hood here and not just well meaning effort by fans of the show (and I say that as a big fan of the show).

The game looks like it has a similar set up to Spartacus with the player boards and items / characters and money being placed on each side of the board, ship upgrades etc. on top.

Itll probably be decent, but the rabid level of fanboy-ery around here will mean it gets panned for not being everything to everyone.

Or they could do an awesome job like FFG did with Galactica so none of us, horrible, horrible fanboys can complain
