Shiny :)

I was just wondering, if I might suggest something for the board, or if it is too late to change anything:

How about putting a picture of Sheriff Bourne (Train Job) on the field "Go to Jail"?

Guess I have to buy some new printer cartridges now, so I can start printing

See ya,
Gavida

but i couldn't find a pic of him, where he's not smiling...

... and if i'll do this, i think i also need a pic of someone in the jail... but is there one...

Hmm, does it have to be a prison?
How about a picture of Wash and Mal being tied up in Niska's Torture Chamber?

Take care,

May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.

That would be cool as well, but then the field should read "Go to Torture Chamber"

But I have to admit I really like the Sheriff Bourne Character (and Gregg Henry), so it would be nice to have him on the board somewhere....

Since you only have pics of him smiling, maybe he should grant "Free Landing"

Later,
Gavida

Very shiny indeed!!

My only slight criticism (if I had one) would be that the dark blue - the most expensive colour on the board - followed by green, to my mind should be the core planets, for obvious reasons... but the way you have it is good too - I guess in yours dark blue represents the most visited planets...

On a random note I once played Pokemon Monopoly in a strange gay pub behind Charing Cross on a wet Sunday afternoon... The game itself wasn't half as inventive as yours, but the counters were these superb little plastic pokemon which I was sorely tempted to make off with!!

What would your counters be?

I don't actually know how to put a link to a picture without making it show up.

Anyway, couldn't you just find a better shot of this guy for In Jail:


and couldn't you just have the fed for Go to Jail?

VERY Shiny Board there :-D

Tried Downloading the Board from that Site:

http://beam.to/firefly/download.html

But the Links seem to be Down :-(

I saw those Pictures in that other Site you Posted:

http://48688.forum.onetwomax.de/topic=100178643189

But it doesn't seem to have all of the Cards....

Any Chance you could E-Mail me the 'Blue Sun' and 'Alliance' Cards and the 'Property' Cards?

philip_mostyn@yahoo.com.au

I've Saved the Pictures of The Board, and will make do with that, and I've Saved the Pictures of the Money from that other Site

Thanks :-)

Not that I'm trying to compete with you or anything, but I made a board game of Firefly too. Figured anybody who was interested in yours might be interested in mine too. I put it in the blue sun room a while ago, but not everybody saw it.

http://www.fireflyfans.net/sunroomitem.asp?i=10704

I saw another Firefly Monopoly a while ago, and no offence to the person who made that one, but this one is SHINY. Good work.

I hope it's okay, but I just wanted to make a suggestion.

You might want to switch around some of the properties. Londinum and Shihnon are the two most important Core planets, so those might be a better choice for Boardwalk and Park Place.

Just an idea. Great board, though. It would be so completely shiny if you could get one of those made. Am I smelling another project for Equality Now? Has possibilities...

Someone asked what you could use for pieces, I know that JETFLAIR is in the process of getting small pewter 3-D models of the ship made for jewelry, you could get some from her not yet on necklaces once she gets them done and use those. Other than that, WAY SHINY! Nice work!
Stay shiny all,

There's no place I can be since I found Serenity.


Here are a few other suggestions for playing pieces.

Serenity of course
Reaver ship

Badger's very fine hat
Vera or the Lassiter

Firefly Monopoly! How cool is that?

I, too, need a new ink cartridge, then I am definitely printing this out. My mom hates monopoly, but I bet she'd play this version! (I turned my mom and brother into Browncoats after my friend made me one. Hey, she could come over, too, and we could all play! This is making me more and more excited the more I think about it...)

Awesome idea!!

Sorry for the double post here, but I'm having trouble.

I can download the files, but I can't do anything with them after they're downloaded. My computer doesn't know what program to open them in, so it asks me to pick one. Well, I sure don't know! So, I tried several and nothing seems to work. What are they supposed to open in?

I'm going to try printing it on my Epson R1800. I'll get it big enough where I have to use two of my 13x19 Photo Papers. I'll then get some foam core backing to adhere it to.

Sweet. Of course that will all happen this next weekend after I get home.

Sculpey is a polymer clay. Works kind of like play-dough, except that it's a lot smoother and easier to get details with. http://www.sculpey.com/ You can bake it after you're done and it's as hard as a ceramic. Here's my little Serenity model.

That's the one I referred to earlier. I made it for school. I didn't want to go too crazy on this thread, cuz it ain't my thread. But you can find it in the Blue Sun Room. http://www.fireflyfans.net/sunroomitem.asp?i=10704

You can download it at http://michaeljwelch.com/files/Game.zip

I'm sooo excited about this.... I want to get a real monopoly board and try to print this at a size that I can paste it on the real game board and use that game's pieces, maybe even the money & chance/chest cards if I discover it would require too much paper & ink to print the ones that go with the game.

But, I'm kind of stuck.

Does anybody have some tips on how to open up these downloads so they can be printed? Please? I'd really love to try this... but, I can't open it! I don't know if I don't have the right program or what... is there still a way for it to work, if I don't have the right one? Or am I just dumb and this should be easier than I think. Help, please?

Go & get the program Infraview it's a free graphic viewer & then once downloaded it should automatically open the Firefly monopoly files.

Find it at www.irfanview.com

The files appear to be in ACE format ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ACE_(file_format) ) - you'll need a piece of software called 'WinACE' (assuming you're using Windows) which you can get from http://www.winace.com/

Hope that helps.

Oooh, "Special Hell" is way cool and ties in with the series being a shiny quote and all. I also thought one of the places could be the Academy that Simon broke River out of. So many possibilities. Of course you could do a double sided board, with another Firefly variation on the other side. The only gorram limit is our imagination. Ali D :~)
