The new Firefly board game by Gale Force Nine was one of the hottest games to grab when GenCon opened its doors on Thursday morning. This is a show exclusive that doesn’t go on sale at retailers for a few months. I had a chance to play the game and it’s the shiniest game in the ‘Verse!
Players maneuver ships across a board to complete individual missions as well as the main mission that a player needs to finish in order to win the game. There are little Serenity tokens, custom dice, cards with characters like Mal, Niska and Patience and all the locales you’ll remember from the show. Yes, Browncoats, you’ll want to go order this from your local game store right now. Trust me.

UPDATE: The game is currently available for pre-order on Amazon for $46.14 (that’s 23% off) with a release date of September 1st.
