FireflyToy Vault announces "Firefly: Out to the Black", a cooperative card game
Wednesday 20 March 2013, by Webmaster
Toy Vault, Inc.’s licensing partnership with Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products includes Firefly themed table-top games, plush, and novelty items with the first items arriving in late Spring 2013.
Currently celebrating the tenth anniversary since its premiere on Fox, Firefly has maintained a strong position in the hearts of science-fiction fans all over the world. Starring Nathan Fillion as Captain Malcolm Reynolds with a ragtag crew aboard the spaceship Serenity, Firefly is best known for its unique spin on classic sci-fi tropes, witty dialogue and memorable characters, courtesy of beloved creator Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Avengers).
Toy Vault Inc. has now revealed the first details of their first tie-in game, titled ’Firefly: Out to the Black’:
’Firefly: Out to the Black’ is a quick card game that plays from three to five players. It’s unusual in that the players do not compete against each other, but compete against the game. This is a fairly new style of game called a co-op (cooperative) game. Players take on roles of the crew of the Serenity and play through a series of Events, all based on situations presented on the show. Using their Fightin’, Flyin’, and Thinkin’ skills, they attempt to successfully complete these Events to earn Credits and Honor. If the players run out of Credits or Honor before the end of the game, they all lose and the game wins! If the players manage to complete the predetermined amount of Events without running out of Credits or Honor, they win the game, and live to fly another day!
