Here to bring the best toys in the 'Verse


Hi everyone! I hope this is the right forum for this and isn't too spammy, but I just wanted to let everyone know that today on Facebook Toy Vault revealed the first images of our upcoming Firefly card game, "Firefly: Out to the Black"!

I'm not sure how to post images on here so I'll just link to the page where you can see the image and read a little more on it. I've had a great time working on this game and as a Firefly fan I'm confident you all will like this game.

http://www.facebook.com/ToyVaultInc

Here's the text that accompanies the picture:

'Firefly: Out to the Black' is a wild hootenanny of adventure and misbehavin' spread out across the blackness of the 'Verse! Life's rough out in the black: money don't come easy and makin' it doesn't often allow one to preserve their honor. It's important to keep both of course: can't eat without the coin, but a handsome reputation will get you pretty far too.

In Toy Vault's 'Firefly: Out to the Black' you play as one of the 9 Serenity crew members and work together with your fellow players to face the various entanglements that come your way. You’ll face the Alliance, Reavers, low-down dirty deceivers and all manner of nastiness as you scour for jobs, choose partners for your missions, and ultimately do your best to stay afloat and keep on flyin’! Game includes 9 character sheets, 88 cards, over 4 dozen tokens, and much more!

Here to bring the best toys in the 'Verse


Just to let everyone know, 'Firefly: Out to the Black' is on Kickstarter now - this Kickstarter is a way to generate funds for over 30 expansion cards, but is also a great way to go ahead and lay claim to your copy of the game, as well as early orders for the Mal Pocket Plushie and air freshener!

Unfortunately, our licensing agreement with Fox only allows for us to ship within the USA. I know there are a lot of you international fans out there (and everywhere, apparently, because seems like all the responses we've gotten so far elsewhere are complaints about that :( ), and trust me, we'd totally open it up to everyone if we could but our hands are a bit tied to that.

And here's the link:

So the main game is a done deal? In the can, so to speak, ready to be sold soon? And this Kickstarter campaign is just for the expansion pack? Or is this Kickstarter thing for the whole kit and kaboodle? Just wondering because there was never any mention of Kickstarter in your original Facebook description.

Game looks awesome by the way.

Yes, the game is done and is being printed - the Kickstarter is for the expansion cards and essentially acting as a preorder type of thing so you can go ahead and get the game, get the expansion, and the Plushie and air freshener if you want.

Just checked the Kickstarter site and found this:

Firefly: Out To The Black (Canceled) is the subject of an intellectual property dispute and is currently unavailable.

Yeeeeah, that's been a bit of a mess to deal with. Fortunately, the game itself was in no-way negatively impacted and is still planned to arrive this October!

We've been receiving a few messages here and there about the progress of 'Out to the Black', so I thought I'd get on here and let everyone know what's up:

The game is on-track to be out sometime in the next month. Our initial projections anticipated the game already being out now but there have been a few setbacks just in the production that are nothing to worry about, just very-common-yet-always-unfortunate-and-impossible-to-forecast manufacturing hold-ups. For some reason factories just don't get as enthused about a 'Firefly' game the way we do!

So no worries everyone - your game is coming and we are extremely excited to finally have it out to you all. The response has been wonderful, we love that so many fans are foaming at the mouth to get a copy, and we're sooo thankful for that and we'd include a gold bar in each game just to thank you if we could. Really, I think 'Firefly' fans - more than any other fanbase in the world - can appreciate the various delays that can be incurred while shipping cargo, eh? Luckily I don't think we need to worry about running afoul of any Alliance patrols.

So... that would have been November... and here it is half gone December and the Game hasn't shipped, and no estimate forthcoming. I'm a patient person but..seriously.

Sorry, just saw this - hopefully you saw our post on Facebook a couple weeks ago offering a little explanation. Looks like we can expect the game this week - it's maddening how, and I'm not even kidding when I say this, just about every. single. thing. that could delay this has occurred. We were all prepped and ready to ship out just in time for Christmas, but then more delays prevented it from getting to our warehouse on time.

Once the matter is in OUR hands - which hopefully will be Monday though I've learned many times over not to expect it until I see it - the office staff will personally be shipping out all the preorders instead of using any more time to have the warehouse personnel do it. If anyone wants me to write them a song or sketch them a doodle on their box, I'm taking commissions! If it's Firefly-related though it'll have to be approved by the licensors first ;-)

Official announcement:

Pre-orderers of 'Firefly: Out to the Black':

'Firefly: Out to the Black' has finally arrived! There were some Alliance boats along the journey, and we had to take a couple long-ways around to avoid Reaver territory, but the cargo has arrived safe and sound. Shipping has commenced and you will be receiving your copy in just a few days time (pending delays in post due to New Years)! Enjoy and, as always, stay shiny!

Good news Zac! It's been a long time coming. Can't wait to play it! Now, about those expansion packs, are they still in the pipeline? Oh, and Happy New Year!

The expansion packs exist, but I'm not sure in what capacity they'll be available (through our website only, if certain/all distributers will get them, etc). At some point I've been told, but it's been kicked around so much that I honestly can't remember how they're being handled now. When I find out I'll try to remember to let you know. I do know that if you pre-ordered the game through our website you'll be getting the expansion packs.
