Firefly The Game Night

Friends Mary and Ed Morgan periodically host Game Nights at their house. And we love to come and play.

Saturday, as we came in, their daughter Amanda (green shirt below) had spread Firefly The Game across the dining room table, announcing she'd only let five people sit and it would be an all night commitment. I was all in, after requesting a sturdy chair at the south end of the table and borrowing a seat cushion off an office chair. Mrs. Dr. Phil headed off to another room to play Kill Dr. Lucky and a fire/rescue board game we played another time, but with an expansion pack. Other games were going on at the kitchen table.

The game goals we were playing for Firefly said it was a two hour game -- it took us four. But fun!

I didn't bring one of my cameras, so we had Wendy's Canon A550. Alas, though the shot is nice, at 1/3 of a second, it's too blurred to see detail.

Threw the flash back on to show some detail. The game is HUGE, taking up the whole table. I kept knocking off some of my cards and my money with my sleeve, though it could just be I'm a klutz. You may not be able to see the auxiliary table in the back on the left just to hold the cards for shopping and moving -- and their discard piles, which are quite important.

INSET: There's my lonely little yellow Firefly way on the other side of the board from everyone -- the Blue Sun is so far, it's on a part of the board from The Blue Sun expansion pack.

Alas, I lost. I had adopted a strategy which Amanda said could work, but it took too long to develop. But, I didn't lose a single crewman and I don't recall ever having to deal with Reavers. Yay, me. I got in solid with three of the five big people who were our First Goal, but as a noob, I took an easy Job cad for Badger that involved going to Miranda for the pickup. You know, the planet in the movie Serenity which was surrounded by Reavers. Yeah, I hadn't gotten built up to tackle that. (evil-grin)

But it was fun! We wuz all winners. And if I get a chance to tackle Firefly again, I'm going to try the same strategy again, but better informed. (all-knowing-grin)
