"Matches the show well"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This game is lots of fun, and matches the spirit of the TV show well. One of the best things about it is how you can play it with two people or even by yourself. This makes it a great purchase for those who sometimes have trouble gathering enough people to play other 3+ player boardgames.

"Amazing Game"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Worth every dollar I spent. Played two games and loved them both. You can really get into the firefly verse and build up your own firefly ship.

"Good Game"
5 stars"

The base game is good, but the game dynamics are improved with the expansion that brings ship to ship combat into the game.

In the Firefly board 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 board game 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.

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.
