About this deal

If the cards go your way and you get a great crew and start completing difficult jobs, you really do feel like a rogue captain sticking it to the Alliance. The board on its own is quite large and then you need space around the board for all the different decks of cards. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice.

It may not be my favorite game in our collection, but it is easily one of the best games in our collection even considering just the base game. A joyous union of board game and brilliant TV show, Firefly: The Board Game manages to hit all the marks. Regardless of whether the rules do or do not work within the context of the game, every mechanic fits in beautifully with the themes of the show and the designers have gone to great lengths to slip as many little references and details into the game as they can, from Jayne’s cunning hat to Misbehave cards using qoutes from the show. This is a really solid game and I am glad it is on our 10×10 this year because it certainly has a ton of life left in our collection. Even though the series was phased out quite quickly, the game had a longer runtime and besides two big expansions, several smaller expansions were also given.

But even on these more dangerous and rewarding missions, you’re still essentially just flying from place to place, it’s just dressed up with a few extra mechanics. The downside of all this is the inordinate amount of table space you actually need to play this game.

You’ll need to use your crew’s skills and some fortunate dice rolls to get past these challenging blocks. On the opposite end of the spectrum somebody like Niska tends to offer jobs with huge payouts that are definitely illegal, often completely immoral and that require a heavily outfitted crew to complete. The problem is that if the cards don’t go your way and you find yourself without a crew, money, or prospects, you’re not going to have a very good time slowly building yourself up while someone else eventually wins the game.

That brings me to my biggest point of contention about Firefly: The Board Game; strip away that lovely, beautiful license and what you’re left with is an enjoyable game, certainly, but not a great one. You can also put the pressure on them to move faster by starting the main objectives even before you might feel ready.

Thankfully even if you don’t print out the FAQ these gaps won’t leave you stuck for long as a few minutes of sensible discussion will result in a house rule which makes sense, but it does make the initial few games a little awkward.
