The call comes in… “911, what is your emergency?” On the other end is a panicked response of “FIRE!” Moments later you don the protective suits that will keep you alive, gather your equipment and rush to the scene of a blazing inferno. The team has only seconds to assess the situation and devise a plan of attack – then you spring into action like the trained professionals that you are. You must face your fears, never give up, and above all else work as a team because the fire is raging, the building is threatening to collapse, and lives are in danger.

You must succeed. You are the brave men and women of fire rescue; people are depending on you. This is what you do every day.

Flash Point: Fire Rescue is a co-operative game of fire rescue.

There are two versions of game play in Flash Point, a basic game and expert game.

In both variants, players are attempting to rescue 7 of 10 victims from a raging building fire.

As the players attempt to rescue the victims, the fire spreads to other parts of the building, causing structural damage and possibly blocking off pathways through the building. Each turn a player may spend action points to try to extinguish fires, move through the building, move victims out of the building or perform various special actions such as moving emergency vehicles. If 4 victims perish in the blaze or the building collapses from taking too much structural damage, the players lose. Otherwise, the players win instantly when they rescue a 7th victim.

The expert variant included in the game adds thematic elements such as flash over, combustible materials, random setup, and variations on game difficulty from novice to heroic. The game includes a double sided board with two different building plans and several expansion maps are available.

    Do you like Pandemic and Forbidden Desert? Have you ever wished for a game that felt exactly halfway between them? If so, Flash Point is probably for you!

    It can be a little random and a little chaotic, but the fires behave in a similar way to outbreaks in Pandemic; you have a rough idea where it is all about to go wrong and don’t worry, it will go wrong!

    The single unit players control and the fact you have 4 action points per turn gives it a similar vibe to Forbidden Desert.

    My only qualm is the formatting of the rules and a few things are stated rather oddly but other than that, a solid co-op.

    If you don’t mind surrendering control and reacting to the situation as it unfolds, Flash Point does a fantastic job of creating situations where players react to chaos in a way where the mechanics make thematic sense.

    Expansions and new content are about too, high rise buildings, ships and submarines, there is a lot of content past the base game if you love it.
