Although this is not their first title set in the ‘Verse, this new game promises to have a completely different feel from their previous release “Firefly: The Game”.
In Firefly Adventures: Brigands and Browncoats one-to-five players will work cooperatively, playing as the crew of Serenity, to complete jobs and collect hard earned Credits.
Players will play through various missions in a skirmish-level game with Malcolm, Zoë, Jayne, Kaylee and Wash.
Each character brings different skills and abilities to the game which means that, depending on your predicament, you may be able to talk yourselves out of trouble or simply use your technical know-what to set off a distraction rather than get into a brawl.
Each mission will have a Job Briefing to give you just enough to go on, what your crew needs to do and how long you have to do it. These jobs can be one time affairs or you can engage in an ongoing series, earning Credits and equipping the crew for the next Job.
A really interesting angle on the miniatures for this game sees two poses provided for each character, one in a casual relaxed position and another in a heroic action stance.
Choosing to “Act Casual” or “Act Heroic” will present unique sets of actions to pick from but deciding when to unleash some thrillin’ heroics will be crucial as unwanted attention is sure to bring trouble.
In the box, you’ll find everything you need to delve into the fan favourite setting including twenty unique miniatures, double-sided map tiles, 3D buildings, dice and a selection of goon, hero and equipment cards.
Gale Force Nine has also said that “In the future, the ‘Verse will continue to grow, expanding your Crew with some notable passengers and persons while facing off against new opponents standing between you and yours“.
This is one I’ll definitely be asking Justin, Ben, Dawn and Giana to check out when it previews at GenCon50 later this month.
Has this got you excited to play with a new shiny?
