I was so delighted when I went to browse the game section of Barnes and Noble the other day and found these super-sweet Firefly-themed versions of some of my favorite board games! If you follow my Screen Time collection (http://www.vingle.net/collections/1439671), you may know my love of Joss Whedon's too-quickly-cancelled space cowboy scifi series Firefly - and the follow-up movie, Serenity. I always suggest it as a good TV marathon session! (http://www.vingle.net/posts/600345)
Any Whedon or Firefly geek in your life will appreciate getting this version of either Clue or Yahtzee. I know I would! Even better if paired with a TV box set of the show. Shiny! (That's "awesome!" in Firefly-speak)
