Quick, Fun Firefly RPG by Loving Fans 2 Sept. 2014
By Richard Staats - Published on Amazon.com
Margaret Weis and Co. (MWP) has done a great job capturing the feel for the Firefly universe while not bogging down the system with a lot of unnecessary rules. The system has an old school feel to it.

The system is based on the Cortex rules framework that MWP have used in their games for several years now.

There are a number of things to commend the system. First, the players actively tell the story in the game by choosing reasonable combinations of attributes and skills to determine which dice are rolled. Second, good, in-character role-playing is encouraged through the use of plot points. (The GM can assign plot points to players for a variety of reasons from preventing an untimely death to encouraging role-playing actions. The plot point can get called in as a way of having the GM add complexity and richness to the challenges facing the players' crew.) Third, the dice rolls can produce both extraordinarily good results and very bad results depending on what is rolled, and the rules cover both great rolls and subsequent adds as well as the less desirable results of poor rolls. So, players know that any time they pick up the dice, they are taking a risk. Finally, the rules encourage social interaction and information gathering as much as they promote combat and causing harm and mayhem.

All in all, joing the Browncoats ... er, buy this game!

Great game 19 Jan. 2015

Verified Purchase
Includes pre-made character sheets for the crew of the Serenity and many other characters that we love and loath. Gameplay seems geared more towards oneshots with a very simple system that everyone should be able to enjoy.

Thrilling Heroics are about to ensue. 17 Sept. 2014
By David Bryan - Published on Amazon.com
I bought this RPG from Margaret Weis herself at Salt Lake City Comic Con. Autographed as well. I'm still going through the book learning the rules. But I can already tell they are very simple rules. Also, no spending hours on end creating a character.

nice game improved by The Verse 20 Feb. 2015
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
If you didn't love Firefly, this game may not be for you. Steeped in the minutiae of The Verse, the attention to detail adds a pleasing depth to the game.

The game itself is pretty interesting--quite a few ways to play , enjoy, and win. There are multiple ways to win (selected at start of game) and that leads to different ways to play. There are enough different kinds of resources (time and money being the most important) and ways to convert between them, that as a player I have plenty of options to achieve my goal.

The games are best between 3 of 4 players from what I've seen so far. I think the solo game would be fun too. I've played with 5 and it seemed to take a little too long (perhaps because we were all relatively new to the game?)

Top Design and Production Quality 12 Sept. 2014
By M.G. Harmon - Published on Amazon.com
I ordered my own copy directly from Margaret Wiess Productions, so I can't speak to the issue of Amazon's shipping. However, I can say that this is a first-rate gamebook, easily of the same quality as MWP's previous award-winning Marvel Superheroic. If you're a FIrefly fan and a gamer, you will not be disappointed by this game.
