It’s that time of the year again. Time sure has flown… much faster than a 03-K64-Firefly runnin’ from the law. Yep, it’s time for our Annual General Meeting! This year we’ll be following it with a Firefly Games Shindig, complete with prizes and a mini Browncoat Booth. We welcome all current, past and non-members for what is sure to be a fun afternoon! Games we’ll have on hand include Firefly Fluxx, Cluedo, Yahtzee (with the Serenity dice shaker) as well as a few special ‘verse themed challenges.

When: Saturday 17 August from 3pm. The Firefly Games Shindig will conclude at 6pm.
Where: Kathleen Syme Library & Community Centre, Multipurpose Room 1 (251 Faraday Street, Carlton VIC 3053). The venue is accessible via a ramp and steps, and toilets are located on both floor levels. Location Information & Transport:

This is a free event, and tea/coffee and afternoon snacks will be provided.

We’re bringing some shiny goodness to Oz Comic-Con Melbourne! Come and see us to check out “Badger’s Den”, our new Firefly themed social and gaming space! Plus we’re hosting Sci-fi Trivia on Sunday at 1pm on the Workshop Stage (MC’d by Ben McKenzie).

In Badger’s Den you can play Firefly Fluxx, Firefly Cluedo, or Serenity Yahtzee, do some colouring in (for both big and little kids), as well as face-painting and more! Grab some photos against our backdrop, or just take a break and hang out, before checking out all the goodies for sale at the Browncoat Booth!

Free Comic Book Day is almost upon us! Thanks to Boom Studios, there will be a Firefly comic available to collect! Have you locked in your plans to get yours on Saturday 4 May? We’ve been reaching out and have confirmed that the stores below will be stocking it. But get in early, as most have only limited supplies!

Keep checking back as we’ll be adding more to the list as we get news. If you know of other places that are definitely stocking it, please let us know! [Continue Reading…]
