Cove from Firefly: the board game - a montage of the cast in front of the shipFirefly: the Game

Fans of Joss Whedon's short-lived TV series, Firefly*, will not be disappointed in this game. It succeeds in capturing the free-wheeling, cowboy spirit of the show and has room for many of the characters and incidents that made it memorable.

If you're not familiar with Firefly, the game is still an entertaining challenge as you captain your 'general transport' spaceship from planet to planet, collecting passengers and cargo, taking on odd jobs (not all of them legal) and occasionally tangling with the law. Or, worse, tangling with those outside the law!

The game has several scenarios, each giving players a different set of goals, so there is plenty of variety in what you're doing. Large decks of cards for crew members, equipment, jobs add to the variety and give the game plenty of replay value.

If that isn't enough, there are lots of expansions available. I have: Breakin' Atmo (additional cards), Pirates and Bounty Hunters (different ships, new scenarios and the opportunity to go pirate!), Blue Sun (a whole new star system, with its own jobs and supplies, and reinforcements for the fearsome reavers!), one of the more advanced ship, the Esmeralda, and the Kalidasa system (another star system and more Rim space) see below for more on these.

* Yep, I'm one of them.

For 1-4 players, aged 13+, playing time 2-4 hours:

Firefly: the Game - Breakin' Atmo expansion boxFirefly: the Game Breakin' Atmo

This is a simple expansion. It just provides some more cards jobs from all the contacts and crew and equipment at all the spaceports to add to the variety of the game. They are marked with a specific logo so you can always take them out again if you don't want to use them.

As the base game (1-4 players, aged 13+, 2-4 hours): 9.00 (7.50 tax free outside the EU)

Cover art from Firefly: the Game - Pirates and Bounty Hunters expansionFirefly: the Game Pirates and Bounty Hunters

The big thing this expansion adds to the game is more player interaction: jobs that require players to steal from each other. Hence the pirates of the title. The bounty hunters bit is a set of 'wanted' cards for certain crew members. They can then be captured and turned in for the offered reward though it's a bit much to do this to your own crew! To go with this, the expansion includes some more aggressive leaders and 'lawmen' crew who are specifically hunting the wanted.

On top of this, the box includes two new spaceships, with models, ship boards and drive core cards for both. This allows more players to take part and provides different options for players. All in all, this is a cracking expansion and I now don't play the game without it.

For 2-6 players, aged 13+, playing time 2-4 hours: 25.00 (20.83 tax free outside the EU)

Cover from Firefly: the game - Blue Sun expansionFirefly: the Game Blue Sun

This is a big expansion with a new add-on board showing the Blue sun and its satellite suns and planets. These provide a new source of supplies and two new contacts providing jobs. However, it's also rim space and the reavers are more active with two more reaver ships in play, making them a serious threat. As you'd expect, there are new scenarios, giving players fresh challenges and new leaders. I've only played with it once so far, but it's good stuff.

For 1-4 players, aged 13+, playing time 2-4 hours: 27.00 (22.50 tax free outside the EU)

Cover from Firefly: Esmeralda expansion - the Esmeralda in flightFirefly: the Game Esmeralda

The Esmeralda is a 'series IV' Firefly (the standard ships are series 3) designed "for discreetly carrying people who don't want to be found to places they won't be followed." It comes with some specific upgrades, which players may choose to purchase at the start of a game an additional copy of these is added to the general decks. The expansion also includes some additional tokens and a new Story (scenario).

For 1+ players, aged 13+, playing time 2-4 hours: 13.50 (11.25 tax free outside the EU)

Cover of Firefly: the Game - Kalidasa expansion showing the crew in front of Kalidasa's golden sunFirefly: the Game Kalidasa

Kalidasa extends the 'Verse a bit further, adding Rim space on the opposite side from the Blue Sun. Apart from the board showing the Kalidasa system itself, there are extra jobs for the existing Contacts, taking players to Kalidasa. Two new Contacts provide jobs going the other way, while a new Supply Planet provides resources and there are new resource cards for the existing supply planets.

To make sure Rim space isn't safe, the expansion also adds the 'Operative' and his corvette, patrolling the Rim on behalf of the Alliance. Add in new Set-up and Story cards, plus replacement Nav decks and there's a lot in the box.

For 1+ players, aged 12+, playing time 2-4 hours: 30.00 (25.00 tax free outside the EU)
