Firefly: the Game
“After the Earth was used up, we found a new solar system and hundreds of new Earths were terra formed and colonized. The central planets formed the Alliance and decided all the planets had to join under their rule. There was some disagreement on that point. After the War, many of the Independents who had fought and lost drifted to the edges of the system, far from Alliance control. Out here, people struggled to get by with the most basic technologies; a ship would bring you work, a gun would help you keep it. A captain's goal was simple: find a crew, find a job, keep flying.”

Firefly, the popular television series, comes to life in a new board game 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 over a decade. Now fans of the television show and board games can chart their own course with Firefly: The Game!
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.
The Breakin' Atmo Expansion, coming in November, introduces 50 new cards to Firefly: The Game; 25 exciting new Job Cards and 25 shiny new Supply Cards. New Jobs present new challenges for captains and their crews with payouts based on their skill levels, while the additional Supply Cards offer new resourceful Crew Members for hire and specialized Gear to help you pull off the big scores.
