So to get the ball rolling... I've just taken delivery of the Blue Sun expansion to Firefly - anyone interested in a game with all the trimmings? (Breaking Atmo, Pirates & Bounty Hunters and Blue Sun?)

Technically you could play up to 7 I suppose, but I don't think I'd recommend more than 5...


  1. Dave
  2. Paul
  3. Liz (Tentative) ?
  4. Nick (Tentative) ?
  5. ?

Rules (Blue Sun) - https://db.tt/Uo2fhH7q
FAQ - https://db.tt/9cAcvZhd
Summary - https://db.tt/FivAPUd1

EDIT: Going to put this one off given there are a bunch of people wanting to play but not coming this week - I'll put it forward again for the 21st

Oh, wow! I would definitely like to try that. But sadly I won't be able to next week as I'm off to London again. I probably won't make it at all, but if I do then it won't be until 9.30 or so...

Not to worry, there will be other games, I guarantee it! (Hell, once I finally manage to move house I intend to start hosting some!)

I'd love to play Firefly, but next week I'm helping Andy play test a new game he's designed called The Path to Panic. Not sure who's also playing, Kes, Steveygee, Sam, Aneurin, Karl? But there'll be more plays of it I'm sure.

If you're interested in helping, there's a thread here with more information:

Hope you've earmarked some space for a big table then ;-)

I've been following the thread with some interest, certainly up for giving it a spin but seem to be a lot of other volunteers too Smile

In the long run yes, but I'm also thinking of springing for a couple of boards like we have at the club, but having them wrapped in some form of fabric.

Oh yes,  I said I'd playtest too...  If there are not enough testers I will step in,  otherwise I'll test in phase 2 and play Firefly instead.

Oh dear, I feel a bit guilty now for distracting people from other games with my middling effort!  I don't want to keep anyone from playing something they really fancy just to do me a favor.

Having thought about it (and coming to realize just how many regular attendees there apparently are to the Sheffield Board Games Club), I think I will sit in for the first game or two of The Path to Panic.  Not to teach per se, but just to be more involved and available for questions and comments.  Anyway, I know I'm biased, but I enjoy playing the game!

So, could I please have five volunteers to play alongside me for a single playthrough (roughly 1 1/2 to 2 hours)?  If anyone is dying to play Firefly (or any other game), please feel free to sign up for that instead.  Also, if you're more interested in the "blind" playtesting to come, which will require people who have no experience of the game, you'll have to pass on playing the game next Tuesday.  If I can't recruit five people ahead of time, I'm sure I'll be able to get some players on the night.

I might only have this one guided playtest or I might have one or two more if I think it would be useful.  After that, I hope to have multiple blind games to watch how newbies get on with the game.  Ideally, these will take place at least once a week (either on regular SBGC Tuesdays or via other arrangements with club members who have the time and interest) for the coming couple of months.

Anyway, if you think you'd be interested in the guided playtest on the 14th, please let me know.  For clarity, I'll update this post once 5 people have volunteered.  Thanks again to everyone at Sheffield Board Games Club for all your enthusiasm and generosity!

-Andy

What an absolutely awesome game though, love it! Smile

Anyhow, so far, looks like me, you, and Tom.

Karl is play-testing. Not sure what Sam is doing (possibly play-testing too). I get the impression Dave often turns up late? Maybe room for one more?

EDIT: full now.

1. Jamie.
2. Aneurin.
3. (beardy) Tom.
4. Scott.

Unless someone wants to duck out, because someone else keeps getting lucky sixes online...  Very Happy  Razz

Okay, you're in Scott!

Yeah, if you can do a little research, that'd be great. Smile

Also, there's a great version available for iPad.

Thanks to both of you, and Lizzy too. We just need one more then for a nice full group of 6 (myself included). But if we need to, I'm sure we can grab someone on the night.

PS - I love Firefly/Serenity (and most anything else Whedon does), but I've never played the board game, so I might well end up joining in with that at a future date, space permitting.
