Kalidasa Expansion for Firefly Now Available

Gale Force 9 now has their Kalidasa expansion available in general release for the Firefly board game. Some of you at Gen Con picked up an advance copy, but the rest of the populace now is able to get it. This expansion finishes out the map of the 'Verse by adding a new section to the game board (though it's certainly not the end of expansion packs planned for the game).

Photo Galleries from Day 2 of Gen Con

Day 2 is about to be in the books (as it's only got about 15min. left and then I'm going to go to sleep). It was quite a wild and busy Friday. The frantic-ness of Thursday turned into a more calm, but no less busy Friday. Everyone was buzzing about the games that they'd picked up the day before or tried overnight.

I, of course, once more made my rounds of the place and got some galleries of photos over on the TGN Facebook page.

New Ship Booster Packs Announced for Firefly Board Game

Gale Force 9 has announced two new expansion packs for their Firefly board game. The Serenity was never the only Firefly ship out there amongst the stars. It was a very popular starship design and as such, there are many variants that a captain could adapt to their purposes. The Esmeralda and Jetwash expansions each bring a new Firefly-style ship to the game. Depending on your play style, either the Esmeralda or Jetwash ships might better suit your smuggling... err... fair trading needs. You can check out both box contents below the cut.

Toy Vault announces upcoming Firefly Board Game

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.

The Esoteric Order of Gamers Reviews Firefly: The Game

The Esoteric Order of Gamers takes a look at the new Firefly board game from Gale Force 9 and gives you their thoughts on the subject.

From the review:

Come and listen to a story about a man named Joss
A poor screenwriter, networks hardly gave a toss,
Then one day he came up with space and West,
And all but the suits thought it was just the best.

Geeks that is, Browncoats, rabid fans.

Well the next thing you know ol’ Joss is a star,
Avengers is a hit (though S.H.I.E.L.D. is F.U.B.A.R.),
But the fans won’t forget their very favourite name
So Gale Force Nine came along and made a game.

Firefly: The Game, that is. Plastic bits, cardboard.
