Toy Vault has a shiny, new Firefly board game they’re working on. Unlike the Gale Force 9 game that takes you out into the universe of Firefly, the Toy Vault game looks like it will feature more of the individual characters of the (sadly) short-lived sci-fi series. The scenarios in the box set will be taken directly from 3 of the episodes. Expect the game on store shelves in March of next year.
From the announcement:
Do the job. Get paid. Aim to misbehave.
‘Firefly: Fistful of Credits’ is a two-to-four-player cooperative game where players step into the boots of Serenity’s crew to pull off a series of dangerous heists and hopefully walk away with their lives and a tidy fortune! The game features 3 distinct heist scenarios inspired by the episodes Bushwhacked, The Train Job, and Ariel; each with their own highly-detailed board, tokens, and Heist card, which details unique objectives from the show that must be accomplished in order to win.
Players pair up any two of the nine crew members, forming unique teams that work with other players to collect gear, fight, and face both luck and misfortune while racing against the clock to complete the heist. Be careful: triggering an alarm, lollygagging around or sticking your nose in the wrong crate can open up a whole world of ugly – be it Reavers, Alliance, or the sinister Hands of Blue!
Fail and it’s all over… but succeeding means you and your crew walk away with more than a Fistful of Credits!
Featuring exclusive artwork inspired by characters, props and settings from the show, ‘Firefly: Fistful of Credits’ arrives March 2015.
