Press release

Their previous game, Serenity, was based on the movie (and set after) - this will be set during the series.

Excellent stuff! I own the Serenity book (and I'm in the process of getting each of the main cast members to sign the inside cover) and look forward to adding this one too the lot!

" 'Firefly: Out to the Black' is a quick card game that plays from three to five players. It’s unusual in that the players do not compete against each other, but compete against the game. This is a fairly new style of game called a co-op (cooperative) game. Players take on roles of the crew of the Serenity and play through a series of Events, all based on situations presented on the show. Using their Fightin’, Flyin’, and Thinkin’ skills, they attempt to successfully complete these Events to earn Credits and Honor. If the players run out of Credits or Honor before the end of the game, they all lose and the game wins! If the players manage to complete the predetermined amount of Events without running out of Credits or Honor, they win the game, and live to fly another day!"

This looks fun too.

Thanks for the share, Deb! I'll have to look into that as well.

There's also a board game planned.

Re: Margaret Weis Productions to do 'Firefly' tabletop RPG

Yeah Deb and I have both seen it circulate on Facebook, I thought someone already shared that to Phoenix?

These sounds like cool things to check out. Will have to check some boardgamegeek reviews of the card game before purchase, though. Most games based on popular franchises are there only to sell the name, not the game, and usually are crap to play.

MW doing the RPG gives me hope. It could be great.

Kind of interesting how Fox continues to milk the Firefly cow, even after it killed the series so hideously.

Whedon rules out doing a Firefly Kickstarter, citing other commitments for himself and Fillion
