Firefly: The Boardgame

Two weeks ago we played Firefly: The Board Game. We weren’t able to finish it this time, it was only the second time we played it, and we still don’t have the rules quite down to play the game a little faster. The estimated 2hrs play-time indicated on the box is wildly optimistic.

It contains a lot of references to the Firefly series, and I’m a huge fan of everything Firefly, so that’s a really great plus, but the game has a bit too many obscure little rules that make us consult the manual way too often. After three hours of play we didn’t even get past the first goal (of three) and we had to give up. Hopefully the speed picks after a few plays, once we get familiar to the rules.
