Firefly: Fistful of Credits is the next game using the Firefly universe and looks to be a vastly different experience than the original Firefly game. Instead of an expansive pick and delivery type game Firefly: Fistful of Credits is a cooperative scenario driven game where each person is controlling a character from the Serenity crew as they try to complete a heist and earn the money they need to keep flying. The game will come boxed with three scenarios you can run through, Intensive Care, The Derelict, and Paradiso Express, that are based off of episodes from the Firefly TV series. Once you pick a scenario and set up it’s specific layout you then pick two characters, one to be the Big Damn Hero and the other to be your sidekick. Finally you pick up some gear and then you are off on the adventure, trying to accomplish the objective in order to survive and hopefully make some money along the way.

Toy Vault will be releasing “Firefly: Fistful of Credits” and “But Wait, There’s More: That’s The Best Part” expansion within the next month. These two titles offer you something for a small group of friends or a big party.
Tom Vasel and the Party Gamecast have given very favorable reviews of But Wait, There’s More. Tom’s review here.

Firefly: Fistful of Credits
Do the job. Get paid. Aim to misbehave.
Firefly: Fistful of Credits is a two-to-four-player cooperative game where players step into the boots of Serenity’s crew to pull off a series of dangerous heists and hopefully walk away with their lives and a tidy fortune! The game features 3 distinct heist scenarios inspired by the episodes Bushwhacked, The Train Job, and Ariel; each with their own highly-detailed board, tokens, and Heist card, which details unique objectives from the show that must be accomplished in order to win.
Players pair up any two of the nine crew members, forming unique teams that work with other players to collect gear, fight, and face both luck and misfortune while racing against the clock to complete the heist. Be careful: triggering an alarm, lollygagging around or sticking your nose in the wrong crate can open up a whole world of ugly – be it Reavers, Alliance, or the sinister Hands of Blue!
Fail and it’s all over…but succeeding means you and your crew walk away with more than a Fistful of Credits!
