Legendary Encounters is releasing a new Firefly deck building game that will allow you to play characters like Mal, Kaylee, Zoe, and River as you work with other players to complete objectives from Firefly episodes.
Each player can select an avatar from the 5 main characters and 4 supporting characters, which means all 9 crew members are represented. “In a game with fewer than five players, additional Avatars are selected until the total count including players is five”. Each character has their own talent and flaw. For example, Mal’s flaw is that he’s antagonistic. Our Cap’n? Never!

There’s more to it, obviously, but they pretty much had me at being able to play in the ‘Verse with my friends. The game releases on August 10th and we have a preview of four of the cards for you to check out below. [click to continue…]
Coloring books for adults are huge right now, and Dark Horse is jumping on the bandwagon in a big way with a new series that kicks off with Serenity, Avatar: The Last Airbender and Bait: Off Color Stories For You To Color by Fight Club author Chuck Palahniuk.

This time around, they’ve dipped into the ‘Verse and made character sheets for Firefly characters Malcolm Reynolds, Inara, Kaylee, and Jayne. Mal’s a rogue, natch. Kaylee is a sorcerer which I find fitting. You can see what Jayne and Inara are below.
You may have received this Kaylee plush bear as part of the Loot Crate Firefly crate, but if you opt not to get the entire crate (which really was filled with awesome), now you have the option to get the Kaylee plush bear separately.
Instead of Kaylee in her coveralls with an adorable teddy bear patch, this is a teddy bear in coveralls with an adorable Kaylee patch—which is so cute that I added in a couple pictures of it specifically because KAWAII!
Check them out below.
A few weeks ago we previewed a Firefly-themed version of Fluxx and it proved to be quite popular. Figured we would let you know that the game has emerged from pre-order and is available now.
Join Mal, Wash, Zoe, Inara, Kaylee, Jayne, Simon, River, and Book as Fluxx enters the ‘Verse at full speed. With the rules constantly changing, Firefly Fluxx Game is just as unpredictable as misbehaving in space! Featuring sumptuous art by Adam Levermore, Firefly Fluxx Game is perfect for fans and collectors of both Firefly and Fluxx.

This dice game is made by Upper Deck and it sure looks like something any Firefly fan would love.
As far as the rules? To quote Kaylee, “Everything’s shiny, Captain. Not to fret”:
The Firefly Shiny Dice Game is a “Press Your Luck” style dice game based on the Firefly universe. Fast, fun gameplay. Play as the crew of the Serenity as you complete mission objectives. Do you press your luck for great rewards or risk losing it all to the Alliance? Play a full game in under 30 minutes! Here’s how it’s played. Firefly Shiny Dice Game is played over a course of 3 rounds. In each round, each player will take a turn. Depending on the outcome of that turn, a player may take additional turns, in a row, pressing their luck, over the course of one round.

There’s something perfect about Firefly and Fluxx pairing up. Serenity’s crew doesn’t follow the rules and the rules change all the time in Fluxx.

With art by Adam Levermore, the Firefly Fluxx Game feels like it would be right at home in any Firefly fan’s collection.

It’s taken two years for Serenity graphic designer Geoffrey Mandel to complete this official map of the ‘Verse, but seems as though that was time well spent.
Documenting the locations, relative sizes and names of the 215 terraformed worlds and moons, seven gas giants, seven protostars and five distinct star systems that make up the Firefly ‘Verse, the map is chock full of details starting with a foundation of available references from the series and movie and built out from there.
The Complete and Official Map of the Verse measures 40-inches wide x 27-inches tall and is made from 65-lb heavy cover stock paper.

You Tube channel Digging Deeper takes a look at Joss Whedon’s Serenity and explains why the movie succeeds (as film – it wasn’t exactly a box office smash) across multiple genres.
I’m not sure I’d agree with everything said here, but I do think Firefly and Serenity were far more visionary than many people initially realized.
