Played Firefly again on Friday, but this time the guy who brings it to game nights had bought the Blue Sun expansion.
First time every playing with that. As others have noted, really makes the table space requirement worse.
Other than that, though, I really loved it! I love that there are three Reaver ships now and the new Reaver mechanics.
We played "Patience's War" (new story with Blue Sun), and it was the best performance I've ever had playing this. It's a tough and bloody one, where each goal requires misbehaving and then an increasingly hard Guns check. Even if you pass, you will lose one, then two, and then four crew (though you've won the game on the last one, so who cares?).
I lost by one turn, unfortunately. The eventual winner had really stocked up on crew and passed all of the tests with ease. I saw that he was doing that, so started pursuing the goals sooner than I would have liked, requiring some good dice rolls.
So far so good and we both completed the second goal on the same turn, me right after him. It was a race to Deadwood, and unfortunately he beat me there. I was one space away. He passed the final tests to win.
He wanted to see what would happen if I took my turn, and made a couple of good dice rolls and I would have won if he didn't (obviously assuming the dice rolls were the same).
Great game and a lot of fun!
All three of us (the third player never even finished the first goal) are experienced players, so were shopping and dealing while others took their turns, so we managed to finish in 2.5 hours.
Will definitely play it again, though I won't be buying Blue Sun. I don't have the room to play it at home and I have to be able to play it at home to justify buying a game.
