This whole ten-year anniversary thing is turning out to be quite a boon for Browncoats. The latest new product announcement comes from Gale Force Nine in the form of their upcoming boardgame Firefly: The Game. It will let you captain your own ship and take on whatever jobs you can find, all while dealing with the Alliance and Reavers. Can you do better than, Mal? Of course you can’t, but you can try.
Gale Force Nine previously released Spartacus: A Game of Blood and Trechery as a tie-in with the Starz show and they did a superb job of evoking the feeling of the show. This bodes very well for all of us getting a boardgame that captures the shiny of the Firefly universe. It’s also just the first in a series of Firefly-themed tabletop boardgames and miniatures games that they’ll be releasing over the course of the year. Expect to see it on store shelves this Fall.
