Can’t stop the signal, apparently!

I can’t quite describe how excited I am by the latest press release from Gale Force 9… They’re releasing a board game based on Joss Whedon’s perennial-phoenix-from-the-flames TV show, Firefly. Check the Facebook page for more info. I’ll be watching this one closely!

Early reports that the board will have a high-gloss finish to make it more shiny have been dismissed as bad puns by the author.

GF9 were mainly known for gaming accessories (including the rather pretty Battlefield in a Box range), but they made some waves in the board game world when their TV tie-in Spartacus: A Game Of Blood And Treachery wasn’t dreadful. In fact, by all accounts, it was jaw-droppingly good! I’ve yet to have a game, but by all accounts they’ve created a game of intrigue, politics and backstabbing. If they can do as good a job of capturing the feeling and emotion of Firefly, I can’t see any reason why we wouldn’t just glue the board to our dining room table.
