From the announcement:

Firefly, the popular television series created by Joss Whedon, comes to life in a new boardgame from Gale Force Nine and Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products. Compelling characters, great storytelling and an evocative universe has made Firefly a fan-favorite for the past ten years. Now fans of the television show and board games can chart their own course with Firefly: The Game, arriving on store shelves Fall 2013.

In Firefly: The Game, players captain their own Firefly-class transport ship, traveling the ‘Verse with a handpicked crew of fighters, mechanics and other travelers. As a captain desperate for work, players are compelled to take on any job — so long as it pays. Double-dealing employers, heavy-handed Alliance patrols and marauding Reavers are all in a day’s work for a ship’s captain at the edge of the ‘Verse. Firefly: The Game is a high-end thematic tabletop boardgame from Gale Force Nine (GF9). It will be the first in a series of tabletop hobby boardgames and miniatures games from GF9 set in the Firefly Universe.

“Building on the success of Spartacus: A Game of Blood and Treachery, we’re thrilled to be making a game that evokes the heart and themes of Firefly – the best ‘gorram’ show in the ‘Verse.” said John Kovaleski, CEO of Gale Force Nine, “With challenging game play, fantastic production values and compelling narratives, you and your fellow captains will want to head out into the big black again and again”.

“We’re pleased to be working with Gale Force Nine to bring a new board game to the devoted fans of Firefly. Firefly: The Game is innovative and remains true to the spirit of the popular series” stated Jeffrey Godsick, President of Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products.

    Do people who cheat when playing this end up going to a special hell?

  • Grindar

    We will rule over all this land, and we will call it… This Land.

    • Curse your sudden, but inevitable, betrayal!

    • Note: Whenever I play a game where they say, “name your city” or “name your country” or whatever, I always pick “This Land.”

    As much as I love Firefly I can’t get excited about this. I want to be excited.

  • mjungledog

    I am very excited about this!

    What about the Toy Vault “Firefly” game? I don’t know if it’s any good (and GF9 seems to have done well with Spartacus), but it seems odd to have two on the market.
