In Legendary Encounters: Firefly, players take on the roles of characters from the series and work together to complete objectives for episodes from the Firefly TV show. Players each select an Avatar out of the Main Characters of the game. Each game will have 5 Main Characters and 4 Supporting Characters, so all 9 crew members will be part of each game. The 14-card stack for each Supporting Character is shuffled together to form the Crew Deck, which will be used to build up each player's deck.
Legendary Encounters: A Firefly Deck Building Game is a standalone game in the Legendary Encounters series that utilizes the Legendary Encounters system set in the Firefly universe. Build up your deck, coordinate with your crew, and upgrade your ship to gain advantages, but be careful that Serenity does not too many ship strikes. Get ready to explore the 'Verse!
It's so commonly talked about, it's barely even the elephant in the room anymore. This game has AWFUL artwork. Disjointed, non-immersive and somehow manages to be similar to the TV show but uncomfortably different at the same time. If you're a true fan of the show, like me, this can actually be a deal breaker.
With that out of the way: the game itself is pretty good. Follows the eps of the TV show fairly nicely, if a little vaguely or simply represented at times. The way you take on a character and then fill the 'purchase' deck with others is very nice. It gives that sense of 'crew' that is so important to the Firefly feel.
The playmat is really nice, and keeps the game contained and focussed.
